AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — A federal judge on Wednesday ordered Texas to suspend the most restrictive abortion law in the U.S., calling it an “offensive deprivation” of a constitutional right by banning most abortions in the nation’s second-most populous state since September.

The order by U.S. District Judge Robert Pitman is the first legal blow to the Texas law known as Senate Bill 8, which until now had withstood a wave of early challenges. In the weeks since the restrictions took effect, Texas abortion providers say the impact has been “exactly what we feared.”

Pitman took Texas to task over the law, saying Republicans lawmakers had “contrived an unprecedented and transparent statutory scheme” to deny patients their constitutional right to an abortion.

“That other courts may find a way to avoid this conclusion is theirs to decide; this Court will not sanction one more day of this offensive deprivation of such an important right.”

Texas officials are likely to seek a swift reversal from the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which previously allowed the restrictions to take effect. State officials did not immediately react to the ruling.

The lawsuit was brought by the Biden administration.

Founder of Detroit Satanic Temple Kills Baby on Live TV During Interview With Pro-Life Activist [VIDEO]



On Sunday, pro-abortion activist Jex Blackmore horrified viewers by taking an abortion pill on live TV and killing her baby.

Blackmore was participating in an interview on Fox 2 News Detroit’s ‘Let it Rip’ segment, hosted by Charlie Langton, in which she was joined by Rebecca Kiessling, a pro-life advocate and lawyer.

Kiessling is an international pro-life speaker and campaigner. She was conceived in rape and has made it her mission to use her story to show others the importance of choosing life, despite the circumstances.

Kiessling is also the founder of Save The 1, an organization that serves to educate the public on why all pre-born children should be protected by law regardless of the situation.

The segment was meant to be a debate between Kiessling and Blackmore, in which they would discuss the FDA’s recent decision to allow abortion pills to be prescribed in a telehealth appointment and received by mail.

Langton asked Blackmore about the safety of the abortion pills, to which Blackmore responded, “It is extremely easy and private and allows you to really self-manage your abortion.”

“Charlie, I just really – I wanna share with you really quickly, like, this here is mifepristone,” Blackmore continued, holding up a small white pill. “This is the first of two pills you would take to end a pregnancy, and it would induce an abortion – this very pill.”

As she held up the pill to the camera, you can see the satanic tattoos covering her hand.

Blackmore continued, with her voice noticeably shaking, saying, “I wanna show you how easy it is and safe it is by taking it myself.” She then put the pill in her mouth and swallowed with a glass of water, while a visibly surprised Langton said, “You’re taking it – are you… you’re not pregnant, are you?”

“I would say this is going to end a pregnancy,” replied Blackmore with a smile on her face. “This will be my third abortion.”

While Blackmore bragged about killing her third unborn child, Kiessling was shown on the screen, appearing shocked and disgusted by what had just occurred.

Rebecca Kiessling talked to 100 Percent Fed Up about her Fox 2 experience. Here’s what she had to say about the gut-wrenching exchange:

“Jex Blackmore isn’t even her real name. She considers herself to be a “satanic artist,” so who knows what’s real with her and what’s not? She clearly did it for shock value, sending press releases and immediately posting on social media bragging that she allegedly took the pill on TV.

I should have been told in advance that she was the founder of The Satanic Temple of Detroit and that she was kicked out for being too extreme when she was filmed for a documentary saying they’re going to execute the President. Who would want to be on air with someone who posts the kinds of disturbing things she does and has a satanic following?

It’s certainly ironic that she said on air that it’s “extremely easy and private” then negates that statement by doing so publicly. And it’s a lie that any abortion is easy. You can clearly hear her voice tremble just as she began to explain what she’s about to do.

Taking the 1st pill may appear to be easy, but like many women, some of my dearest friends regretted taking the first pill. They were told by doctors they had to take the 2nd, and the aftermath of the 2nd pill is absolutely horrific. The woman becomes her own abortionist, having to endure painful contractions and having to decide how to dispose of her now-dead baby.

This is why I spoke about the abortion pill reversal.  I know many women who have their babies because they did the hormonal regimen to reverse the effects of the 1st pill.


With abortion, a preborn baby does not just magically vanish into thin air by merely swallowing a pill, as some may think. Jex’s actions are extremely deceiving and make me think of someone pushing a button for a drone strike – it would appear easy enough, but in reality, most people understand the carnage which will ensue and should be outraged at the tragic loss of life and the callousness with which it was done. Just because we don’t witness the outcome as the button is pushed or the pill swallowed, doesn’t mean we should feign ignorance to the reality that innocent human life is being taken.”

As Kiessling points out in her statement, Blackmore is the founder of Detroit’s chapter of The Satanic Temple. However, in the interview, she is only labeled as a “reproductive healthcare advocate”, and host Charlie Langton only refers to her as a “pro-choice activist”.

Blackmore has taken to Instagram to continuously brag about taking her abortion pill on live TV, saying things like “I like the sound of ‘3rd abortion for satanist Jex Blackmore’”, and posting videos to make fun of Kiessling’s negative reaction to the interview.

Sotomayor calls SCOTUS not blocking Texas abortion law “Catastrophic”



Liberal Supreme Court Justice  Sonya Sotomayor called the high court’s decision to allow Texas’s six-week abortion law to stand “catastrophic.”

Sotomayor said she “cannot capture the totality of this harm in these pages” in her opinion.

Sotomayor calls SCOTUS not blocking Texas abortion law "Catastrophic"

She wrote “but as these excerpts illustrate, the State (empowered by this Court’s inaction) has so thoroughly chilled the exercise of the right recognized in Roe as to nearly suspend it within its borders and strain access to it in other States.”

“The State’s gambit has worked. The impact is catastrophic,” she added.

Sotomayor also warned those women unable to travel to get an abortion may  “resort to dangerous methods of self-help.”

“None of this is seriously in dispute. These circumstances are exceptional. Women seeking abortion care in Texas are entitled to relief from this Court now,” she added. “Because of the Court’s failure to act today, that relief, if it comes, will be too late for many.”

Texas doctor sued after admitting to violating state’s abortion ban



ASan Antonio doctor who admitted to performing an abortion that violated Texas’ six-week abortion ban now faces legal consequences for his actions.

According to The Associated Press, a former attorney in Arkansas filed a lawsuit Monday against Dr. Alain Braid, who wrote in a Washington Post opinion piece that he performed an abortion that is deemed illegal under Texa law. 

Under the new law, private lawsuits can be brought against anyone suspected of “aiding and abetting” an abortion after fetal cardiac activity is detected. If the legal challenges are successful, the defendant could be fined up to $10,000.

Oscar Stilley, the plaintiff in the case, told the Associated Press that he is not opposed to abortion but he sued in order to force a court to review the law. 

“I don’t want doctors out there nervous … quaking in their boots and saying, ‘I can’t do this because if this thing works out, then I’m going to be bankrupt,'” Stilley said in an interview.

The Supreme Court declined to block the Texas law from going into effect earlier this month, causing outrage among many pro-choice advocates. 

More lawsuits against the doctor are expected.
