1 – Supreme Court deals another setback to abortion providers in latest decision on Texas heartbeat law
Fox News reports: The Supreme Court rejected a request to remand Texas’ six-week abortion law back a federal district court Thursday, marking another setback for advocates who have been fighting to strike down the controversial measure.
Justices Sotomayor, Kagan and Breyer dissented from the decision, which returns the issue to a state court for additional procedural determinations.
The bill, known as a “heartbeat” law, has fueled the already fiery abortion debate and prompted speculation about the court’s disposition towards Roe v. Wade.
Last month, the court allowed Texas’ law to remain in place while maintaining a narrow legal path for abortion providers.

This means that #SB8 will remain in effect while we wait in legal limbo. This delay is unacceptable and a violation of our rights.

2 – Elected New Jersey Official John Williams Abandons Democratic Party After Gov ‘Expanded Abortion Legislation’
The Daily Caller reports: A New Jersey committeeman said he was leaving the Democratic Party in response to “expanded abortion legislation” under Gov. Phil Murphy, according to a statement obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation.
“The Democratic party of today is not at all in line with my views. I want to be a part of the new day here in Buena Vista Township. I’m looking forward to continuing to serve alongside talented Republicans,” Buena Vista Committeeman John Williams told the DCNF in a statement. Williams added that he was “proud” to seek reelection on the Republican ticket alongside Rep. Jeff Van Drew, who also is a former Democrat.
“I am pro-life, and I am doing this to have a better shot to stay on council and for religious reasons,” Williams told Democratic Municipal Chairman Quentin McClellan, according to text messages obtained by the New Jersey Globe. Murphy signed the legislation into law on Jan. 13, guaranteeing the right to an abortion regardless of whether the Supreme Court votes to overturn Roe v. Wade, the Associated Press reported.

3 – Virginia Public School Students Made To Play ‘Identify Your Privilege’ Bingo
The Free Beacon reports: Virginia’s largest school district is on the defensive after it was caught forcing children to participate in a game of “privilege bingo” that singled out kids for characteristics involving their race and family life.
Students at Fairfax County’s Oakton High School were asked to self-identify their privilege for an exercise that the district says “was intended to provide students with an opportunity to reflect on their own experiences while building their critical thinking skills.” The bingo card contained squares based on race, identity, socioeconomic status, and family life and included categories such as “white,” “military kid,” “parents are married,” “mentally healthy,” “cisgender,” “have your own bedroom,” “Christian,” and “able-bodied.”
The district initially defended the lesson plan. Assistant Superintendent Douglas A. Tyson said that the card came from an approved Fairfax County Public Schools English curriculum lesson and was “an adept vehicle to push student thinking to challenge [an] author’s thoughts/conclusions and to sharpen their ability to critically read selected texts.”
After backlash from military families who viewed the lesson as a baseless attack, the district backtracked and said the activity would be “revised.”
