I just finished reading a couple of articles on the Texas law and, frankly, what I've read has blown my mind. Not because the law is so harsh, repressive, and misogynistic, which it is, but because it's so wacky.
Apparently post six-weeks abortions are now illegal in Texas, but - and this is according to the New York Times - "No law enforcement officer or other government official is tasked with upholding the new law. In fact, they are explicitly barred from doing so." Rather, the law is meant to be policed by private citizens who bring lawsuits against abortion providers. Not against the women seeking or receiving abortions; in fact the law forbids suing those women, the principle being, I suppose, that a woman mustn't be held responsible for making such a decision for herself.
A plaintiff who sues someone for violating the abortion law will be awarded $10,000 if their case is successful, the money to be paid by the person who aided or abetted with the abortion, who must also pay all their own legal fees as well as those of the plaintiff. If someone brings a frivolous lawsuit against someone else - say there's a neighbor you hate and so you groundlessly accuse them and sue them for breaking the "aiding and abetting in an abortion" law - the defendant is still required to pay their own legal fees, even if the lawsuit is deemed ridiculous and thrown out, nor can a frivolous plaintiff whose suit is thrown out be punished by being required to pay the defendant's legal costs.
And this Texas law that takes its enforcement out of the hands of the public criminal justice system and puts it into the hands of vigilantes and bounty hunters, this law that defies Logic 101, was upheld by the Supreme Court, five:
Chief Justice John Roberts, who ruled against upholding the Texas law,
Astute observation, Chief Justice.
In the meantime, in the two days since the Texas anti-abortion law was upheld, anti-abortion websites have popped up on the internet asking for tips on alleged violators of the law. However, at least one of these websites, a Texas Right to Life site called, "Pro Life Whistle Blower," has already been deluged with phony tips by TikTok activists.
