Rep. Roy rips abortion extremists for federal lawsuit targeting Texas Heartbeat Bill

WASHINGTON—On Monday, Rep. Chip Roy (TX-21) issued the following statement in response to abortion activists’ attempt to block the Texas Heartbeat Bill:

Abortion extremists are once again on parade to the courthouse in their latest attempt to block a democratically passed law because it dares to protect innocent, unborn children from the lies of the abortion industry. The courts should reject this brazenly politicized lawsuit on its face. The will of the people to protect the right to life of the unborn must be respected. We must resolve to reclaim our right to self-government, not bow to the whims of unelected lawyers in black robes.
