After the U.S. Supreme Court refused to block the Texas Heartbeat Act, which became effective September 1, progressives and leftists reacted harshly on social media and the traditional media.
In particular, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has fed the pro-abortion crowd some soundbites through the corporate media. On Thursday, she attacked a male reporter for daring to ask a question about the law.
She furthered the implication that men are utterly uninvolved in childbirth or raising children. The attitude pressed by the left promotes the belief that laws restricting abortion are enacted only by men, and all women favor abortion on demand.

Despite the predictable media reaction, Bryon Preston at PJ Media noted that women primarily lead the pro-life movement in Texas. Many of those Texans have faced many years of dishonest abuse from the corporate media and social media platforms. The “mainstream” works hard to cancel these women at every turn.
The listed primary author of the Texas Heartbeat Act is Republican Rep. Shelby Slawson. Along with state Senator Bryan Hughes, Slawson was the leader for adopting the law in the Texas legislature.
Rep. Slawson delivered powerful addresses to the Texas House floor supporting the law, while several women legislators stood behind her in support. She shared her own birth story and how multiple doctors advised her mother to abort her pregnancy because of development issues.
Slawson told Preston that the pro-life movement is growing among younger people, who see Texas as a national leader in pro-life legislation that other states can model themselves after.
Slawson, 44, is a law school graduate of the University of Texas and was rated earlier this year as one of the most conservative members of the Texas legislature. She lives in the heart of Texas in Stephensville, just west of Ft. Worth.
Preston discusses the achievements of several other Texas women who are leaders in the pro-life movement. Texas is destined to be at the forefront of the national abortion discussion soon.
The Texas Heartbeat Act is specifically designed to withstand the traditional attacks against pro-life legislation in court. It is sure to be at the forefront of the discussion when the Supreme Court rules next summer on the pending abortion case that arose in Mississippi. In that case, the Mississippi attorney general and multiple national organizations and pro-life individuals have expressly asked the court to overturn Roe v. Wade.
