Judge Strikes Down Texas Abortion Law

Matthew 19:18 ESV “And Jesus said, “You shall not murder…”

Editor’s Note: Throughout the scriptures, God has made it clear that shedding innocent blood is murder, and no murderer will enter heaven. In addition to the death of the unborn baby, abortion also substantially harms the women and many times, families, husbands, boyfriends and a whole sphere of relationships connected to and surrounding each abortion. Often, lifelong guilt and other social, relational, spiritual and even physical problems follow the murder of innocent babes in the womb. Pastor Jim Bakker believes that this issue, abortion, may be the single most significant issue that brings God’s judgment on this nation more than any other.

A federal judge struck down key parts of a law in Texas aimed at improving health conditions for women seeking to end their child’s life via abortion.

U.S. District Judge Lee Yeakel blocked the part of the law that requires doctors to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital because it “places a substantial obstacle in the path of a woman seeking an abortion of a nonviable fetus and is thus an undue burden to her.”

The judge also blocked a part of the law that deals with medication-induced abortions but allowed restrictions to remain. The provisions include requiring the drugs to be used in strict compliance with FDA requirements and making follow up visits mandatory.

Pro-life groups said that the blockage of the law puts women’s lives in danger.

“Blocking this law only puts vulnerable women in greater danger. We are very disturbed that a judge would partially block a law that is grounded in the latest science and in common sense,” Anna Higgins of the Family Research Council told CNN.
