Abortion Law Itself Depends on ‘Vigilante’ ‘Private Attorneys General’

The Washington Post’s critique of the Texas Heartbeat Law misses this irony. One person’s “vigilante” is another person’s “private attorney general.” It all depends on whose side you’re on. An interesting opinion piece disguised as a news...
