Texas Attorney General Announces Statewide Abortion Ban

On Friday, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced that abortions are now illegal in Texas. Paxton’s statement comes on the heels of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade case.

Mediaite reports:

Today the United States Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973), and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, 505 U.S. 833 (1992), thus bringing an end to a half century of the unconstitutional and unconscionable national “right” to abortion. Attorney General Paxton also released an official advisory setting forth Texas law in light of the Supreme Court’s decision. Additionally, he announced the statewide closure of his agency’s offices today in honor of the nearly 70 million unborn babies killed in the womb since 1973. June 24th will be an annual Office of the Attorney General holiday in recognition of this momentous decision—and the many lives lost before it.

“Roe v. Wade and its successor case Planned Parenthood v. Casey have absolutely no basis in the U.S. Constitution,” said Attorney General Paxton. “Nevertheless, for half a century, Americans have had to live under these illegitimate, illegal, and unconstitutional dictates of a partisan, willful Supreme Court. No more. Today, the question of abortion returns to the states. And in Texas, that question has already been answered: abortion is illegal here. I look forward to defending the pro-life laws of Texas and the lives of all unborn children moving forward.”

“Further,” added Attorney General Paxton, “we cannot forget the extraordinary violence that Roe and Casey unleashed on our nation. Because of those decisions, almost 70 million babies have been killed in the womb. And so, today at noon, I am closing all my offices as a memorial to these babies. Our hearts and prayers go out to all of them. Never again should something like this happen in America.”

Next step is to quit importing illegals! They should be charged right on the spot for illegal entry and sent out of the country with a two year penalty ! If they sneak back! TWO YEARS HARD LABOR AND KICKED OUT FOREVER! Third time shot on sight! They need to go back and clean up the mess they made in their country!

At last! The Union of Citizens of the US of A has never allowed abortion in its Constitution for US Citizens. I still do not understand how this ever took place. If we didn’t have had R v. W. we would have never needed Foreigners to work here. Much less to ruin our way of being. Now, let’s work to get true Republicans, not RINOS, and Mr. Trump back in command of our Union and straighten the mess Democrats have created. We can do it!!!

Those babies wasn’t only in the womb, but alot of them were full term, cut into with out anesthesia and their organs cut out!! Those devils have the nerve to chant my body, my choice!! Well was it their bodies laying there being horribly operated on causing unimaginable pain and suffering?! Overturning this was Almighty God’s choice and if criminals like Gretchen Witmer thinks God will allow her to go against His decision, she has deceived herself!!! In Michigan, we have to all go out in person not be afraid and vote this devil out of office!!!!!
