Two days after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 on Wednesday to allow Texas’s heartbeat abortion law to remain in effect as the high court considers the law’s constitutionality, a Democrat judge issued her own ruling blocking the law from being enforced.

Texas 459th District Court Judge Maya Guerra Gamble ruled Friday that Texas Right to Life, a pro-life group that had been set to begin enforcing the law, cannot enforce it against the government-funded abortion factory known as Planned Parenthood.

“The temporary restraining order bars Texas Right to Life and affiliated groups from attempting to sue Planned Parenthood, its physicians and staff while litigation over the law is ongoing,” according to Axios.

Pro-abortion leftists can now be seen on Twitter worshiping the judge just as they used to worship deceased Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg:

The law, which went into effect Sept. 1, empowers citizens with the right to sue anyone who facilitates the abortion of a baby whose heartbeat has been detected. Heartbeats usually aren’t detected til the 5th or 6th week of pregnancy.

Texas Right to Life, a pro-life group, had been ready to sue Planned Parenthood, but the pro-abortion organization filed suit first in an attempt to block them.

“Planned Parenthood affiliates sued Texas Right to Life, our Legislative Director John Seago, and 100 unnamed individuals on Thursday in an attempt to stop us from suing them under the Texas Heartbeat Act,” according to a Texas Right to Life press release.

“The petition filed on September 2 cites Texas Right to Life’s work in spearheading the policy in the state Legislature and our Pro-Life whistleblower website as reasons why they have stopped committing abortions in Texas,” the press release adds.

Gamble argued in her ruling that the law creates “probable, irreparable, and imminent injury in the interim for which [Planned Parenthood] and their physicians, staff, and patients throughout Texas have no adequate remedy at law” if and when they’re sued.

But there’s a major catch:

The ruling reportedly only applies to Texas Right to Life, meaning anyone not associated with the pro-life group can still sue Planned Parenthood.

Moreover, the ruling will expire on Sept. 17th.

“This lawsuit will not stop the work of Texas Right to Life. Estimates are that approximately 150 babies per day are being saved because of Texas Right to Life’s leadership on the Texas Heartbeat Act,” Elizabeth Graham, Texas Right to Life vice president, said in a statement.

“Planned Parenthood can keep suing us, but Texas Right to Life will never back down from protecting pregnant women and preborn children from abortion,” she added.

Gamble’s ruling came two days after a majority of the Supreme Court, including Justice Amy Coney Barrett, ruled to allow the Texas law to remain active as the court considers its constitutionality.

According to Harvard law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz, because the law seems to turn everyday citizens into veritable abortion bounty hunters, there remains a high likelihood that it’ll ultimately be struck down,

Speaking on Newsmax this Thursday, he called the law outright “unconstitutional.”

“The idea of giving individuals the right to enforce the law – what if Texas next passed a law saying that anybody had the right to prevent gay marriage? If any gay people get married you can sue them, and anybody who facilitated the gay marriage and collect $10,000? Or any black person who wants to vote, a white person can sue them?” he said.

But his remarks seemed like a bit of an exaggeration …

It’s not clear whether the same can be said of Planned Parenthood Advocates of Arizona chair Chris Love’s call for pro-abortion activists to engage in violent rioting.

“I mean, what exactly did you all expect? You’re devastated, but you consistently ignored every single sign. I’ll write something coherent in the morning, but just know that fighting back doesn’t mean p—y hats or petitions. Be ready to break some shit,” she angrily tweeted this past week.

In additional tweets, she claimed that the law means Roe v. Wade is “essentially done.”

No, actually, it’s not.
