Poll show support widespread support for Texas’ Heartbeat Law

By Dave Andrusko

No doubt much to the dismay of the pro-abortion Houston Chronicle, a poll “conducted Oct. 4 to Oct. 21 and released Tuesday, found that 55 percent of Texans support Senate Bill 8.”

Contrary to the flood of negative media attention, Texas’ Heartbeat Law—S.B.8—found not only major support among women and men, Latino and white respondents, it also gathered strong support among Independents and nearly 4 in ten Democrats!

According to Jasper Scherer

Among the state’s three largest racial and ethnic groups, Latino Texans expressed the strongest approval for the abortion law, with 58 percent supporting it, compared to 55 and 47 percent of white and Black residents, respectively.

Otherwise, the law was supported by 59 percent of men, 52 percent of women, 74 percent of Republicans and 38 percent of Democrats. Mirroring the statewide total, 55 percent of independents said they approve of the law.

On October 22, over the bitter dissent of Justice Sotomayor, the Court did not vacate the 5th Circuit stay of District Court Robert Pitman’s preliminary injunction. However the justices agreed to expedite a hearing, scheduling oral arguments for Nov.1. That is one month before arguments in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, the Mississippi law which bans abortions after the 15th week. 

Last month, without ruling on the law’s constitutionality, the justices allowed the law to go into effect. Since that time abortion providers and the Biden administration have repeatedly attempted to have the law stopped in its tracks while legal proceedings proceed.
