Leftists Cling To Outdated Roe Arguments While Texas Protects Individual Rights
Washington, D.C.: “Biden’s Attorney General Merrick Garland has announced that the Department of Justice is suing the state of Texas over their newly enacted Heartbeat Law,” said Ed Martin, president of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles.
Garland said the new law is in “open defiance to the Constitution. This kind of scheme to nullify the Constitution of the United States is one that all Americans, whatever their politics or party, should fear.”
“This comes just when we thought the lies and fearmongering of this administration couldn’t stoop lower,” said Ed Martin, “The primary objective of government is to protect the rights of the individual, chief among them being the right to life. The very 14th Amendment upon which the radical left’s sacred cow of Roe v. Wade hinged recognizes that the government shall not ‘deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.’
“Science has brought us light-years from 1973, and our understanding of children in the womb lays bare the faulty logic of Roe. Texas is following science — not a political agenda. The Texas legislature crafted a masterful law that is quite resilient to the ‘lawfare’ of the left.
“Shame on the DOJ for openly pursuing a violation of individual rights. Shame on Merrick Garland for lying and fearmongering. I pray now that the leaders of Texas will fight to defend this good law and the tens of thousands of baby Texans depend upon it.”
