Republicans have zero respect for the rule of law. This new Texas law bans abortion when a fetal heartbeat can be detected – about 6 weeks into gestation. That is before many women even know that they are pregnant. The law of the land established by SCOTUS in Roe Vs. Wade and other cases is that such bans are Unconstitutional until about 24 weeks.
But wait, there is more. As a gimmick to avoid following the law, the state will not enforce the ban. Instead, it leaves the enforcement to private law suits by ANYBODY and will pay a $10,000 bounty to ANYONE who successfully sues anyone who provides, helps, counsels or encourages an abortion after 6 weeks.
I would like to say that you can not make this stuff up, but this is reality. This is how anti-woman, anti-science (heartbeat, really?) Republicans really are.
