Applauds the SCOTUS Decision to Overturn Roe v. Wade
Rockwall, Texas – In America, after forty-nine years of living with the unjust United States Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision, today it has been rightfully overturned. This decision by the Court reveals the incorruptibility of these Justices. They were unjustly targeted by the left, and they stood strong. We are thankful for them.
Texas has determined that children, still in the protection of their mother’s womb, will be safe from destruction. The 87th Legislature in 2021 passed HB 1280, authored by Rep. Giovanni Capriglione (R-District 98), sponsored by Sen. Angela Paxton (R-District 8), and signed by Gov. Greg Abbott. This statute bans abortion in Texas, except if the continuation of the pregnancy would endanger the life of the mother. The act takes effect in 30 days, now that the Supreme Court has overturned Roe in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. Also, because there was a ban in Texas statutes in 1973 when this decision was handed down, some believe the original ban can be immediately enforced.
Ann Hettinger, State Director of Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Texas, has this to say concerning the Supreme Court decision:
“CWA of Texas has worked diligently for years to do two things: First, support, with life-affirming services, women who find themselves in unplanned pregnancies. Second, we have worked to educate citizens on the value of every human life and the promise it brings to the future of Texas and our nation.
“We have worked to elect officials who have stood fearlessly for these precepts and have undergirded women with functional governmental help. We are sincerely grateful to all the leaders who have served our State through the years, our Governors, our Lt. Governors, our State Senators and Representatives. They have faced hostility, ridicule, and opposition in every vote, and yet they have remained faithful to their commitment to life.
“We will continue to support all families when they are challenged with unplanned pregnancies. We believe every child deserves protection, provisions, and most of all, love. When public policy issues arise, we will stand for life!”
