Joe Biden’s run of bad news is not about to end any time soon.
This latest setback came on one of Joe Biden’s top priorities.
And Joe Biden suffered another legal defeat that left Clarence Thomas smiling.
The Biden regime lost in court again in the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals trying to stop a Texas law from going into effect that banned abortions after six weeks.
Biden regime lawyers continually lose in court because of the setup of the law which allows private citizens to file civil lawsuits against abortion providers that terminate the lives of babies after six weeks.
The Fifth Circuit’s ruling allows the law to remain in effect as the case plays out.
The new decision by the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals extends a previous order that for now keeps in place the Texas law known as Senate Bill 8. It marks the third time since October that the conservative-leaning appeals court has sided with Texas and let the restrictions stand.
It leaves the Justice Department and Texas abortion providers with a narrowing path to try stopping the law, which has thus far prevailed because of a unique structure that leaves enforcement up to private citizens. Anyone who brings a successful lawsuit against an abortion provider for violating the law is entitled to claim at least $10,000 in damages, which the Biden administration says amounts to a bounty.
The Biden regime’s last play left is to appeal the law to the Supreme Court.
Clarence Thomas has repeatedly said Roe v. Wade was a terrible decision that the Supreme Court must overturn.
If Biden appeals this Texas law to the Supreme Court, it will put Biden on a collision course with Thomas and the other conservative Justices who want to drastically curtail or even overturn Roe.
But Biden may have no choice.
Biden’s facing slumping poll numbers, and the prospect of Biden not fighting to the bitter end to defend abortion-on-demand could further depress Democrat voter enthusiasm ahead of the 2022 midterms.
