A GOP Senator stated the Supreme Court will in the end ‘swat’ away Texas’ restrictive abortion regulation


  • A restrictive abortion regulation went into impact on Wednesday in Texas. 
  • The Supreme Court refused to dam the regulation in a 5-4 ruling.
  • A GOP senator stated they will in the end “swat it” away and that it is getting used to distract from different problems. 

GOP Senator Bill Cassidy stated he expects the USA Supreme Court will “swat” away Texas’ restrictive abortion regulation. 

“I think the Supreme Court will swat it away once it comes to them in an appropriate manner,” Cassidy stated all over an interview with ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday. 


The Texas Heartbeat regulation, or SB 8, went into impact on Wednesday and bans abortions after six weeks, prior to most girls know they are pregnant. 

The Supreme Court refused to dam the regulation in a 5-4 ruling. The ruling used to be no longer at the deserves of the regulation or the landmark 1973 Roe V. Wade determination that made abortion felony in the USA. Instead, the courtroom stated it could not step into the dispute, with a majority of the justices announcing they weren’t able for a complete listening to.

“This order is not based on any conclusion about the constitutionality of Texas’ law, and in no way limits other procedurally proper challenges to the Texas law, including in Texas state courts,” they wrote.

Cassidy advised ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that the ruling “had nothing to do with the constitutionality of Roe v. Wade,” however used to be about the ones bringing the case no longer having “standing” or no longer sufficient stake within the case to document the problem. 

“If it is as terrible as people say it is, it will be destroyed by the Supreme Court,” Cassidy stated. 

Some supporters of felony abortion have known as the verdict a “soft” overturn of Roe v. Wade.

President Joe Biden used to be vital of the regulation and stated it “will significantly impair women’s access to the health care they need.”

“It just seems, I know this sounds ridiculous, almost un-American,” Biden stated on Friday.

Cassidy stated Democrats have been the use of the ruling to distract from different problems, like the USA withdrawal from Afghanistan. 

“People are using it to gin up their base to distract from disastrous policies in Afghanistan, maybe for fundraising appeals,” Cassidy stated. “I wish we would focus on issues as opposed to theater. It was about if they had standing, nothing to do with constitutionality. I think we should move on to other issues.”
