Texas Pro Life Group Fighting 14 Lawsuits Over Heartbeat Act

An Austin, Texas, judge heard arguments Wednesday in Van Stean v. Texas Right to Life, one of 14 lawsuits against the pro-life group over the Texas Heartbeat Act.

Lawsuits against Texas Right to Life seek to block the organization from suing abortion providers under the Texas Heartbeat Act, which allows individuals to sue anyone who performs or helps others obtain an abortion after a baby’s heartbeat can be detected, The Texas Tribune reported.

Texas Right to Life has not filed any suits related to the Heartbeat Act, according to the Tribune.

A lawsuit brought by Planned Parenthood seeks to block the law, while the remaining suits ask the judge to issue a declaratory judgment on the constitutionality of the law, the Tribune reported.

Texas Right To Life created an anonymous abortion tip line in response to the new law to help in the reporting process created by the Heartbeat Act which was quickly flooded with fake tips, according to The Dallas Morning News. The site’s web address, “,” now redirects to the Texas Right to Life website.

“Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry have not alleged that Texas Right to Life … [has] done anything unconstitutional. They’re attacking us because of our beliefs,” Schwartz said in a statement. “The abortion industry is attempting to punish Texas Right to Life for supporting the Texas Heartbeat Act and having the ability to hold them accountable to the law. We will not be deterred,” the organization’s website states.

The Supreme Court heard arguments Nov. 1 regarding the Texas Heartbeat Act and is expected to issue a decision in the coming week.

  1. They test for the flu since they’ve never isolated Covid-19. Which makes me wonder how they can tell there is a delta variant. They never isolated the virus but they use a test to show the damage of a solution does on monkey kidney cells then show the cellular debris as proof of the virus. So, they can use this method to claim an UNENDING! amount of variants. A lot of cancers and “viruses” are probably just different forms of parasites. Since the tests can’t differentiate between cold and flu and covid then doesn’t that mean ivermectin cures both the cold and the flu?
