(Daily Citizen) Abortionists are leaving Texas rather than risk being sued under the new Texas heartbeat law, which prohibits abortions once a fetal heartbeat can be detected. And in other good news, the U.S. Department of Justice, which had filed its own lawsuit against the new law in a Texas federal court, was denied the expedited process it asked for, leaving the law in effect for the foreseeable future.
The Guardian reports that on August 31, the day before the Texas law went into effect, there were 17 abortion providers serving at the four locations of the Whole Woman’s Health abortion facilities in Texas. On September 1 there were only eight.
Apparently, the majority of abortionists who work for Whole Woman’s Health fly in weekly to perform abortions from out of state and have decided they don’t want to run the risk of being sued under the new law. Several abortion clinic managers have also resigned for the same reason.
“Just because we are complying with SB8 doesn’t stop extremists from saying that we are defying SB8,” said Amy Hagstrom Miller, the founder and CEO of Whole Woman’s Health. “Even with compliance, there is a reasonable amount of threat that our staff and our doctors have to weigh. There is still so much risk to them.”

A CALL TO ACTION
Enjoy our content? GREAT! Unfortunately, ad revenue for truth-telling websites has been severely hampered by consorship and de-platforming. This ministry isn't free to run, and finding people willing to support polemical theology is like trying to find a needle in a haystack.
