AUSTIN, TEXAS — On Thursday, Feb. 21, the “Heartbeat” bill continues gaining momentum with a full 50 Texas lawmakers now listed as co-sponsors, according to reports.
We reached out to the bill’s author, State Rep. Briscoe Cain (recently rated the “most conservative” member of the entire Texas House).
“There’s been a lot of debate lately about when a human being is a human being, and whether a the heartbeat stoped by the abortionist was that of a child’s, or whether it is more or less moral to have an abortion after 20 weeks gestation because the unborn child can or cannot feel pain,” Cain told Big League Politics.
In his view, such discussions are an exercise in fulility. “This is rationalizing the indefensible, and playing gymnastics with the unconscionable,” Cain stated. “If it’s not a human being, then no defense is necessary. If it is a human being, then no defense is possible,” he concluded.
Cain’s straightforward definition of terms stands in stark contrast to the usual hedging and obfuscation preferred by most politicians.
Very often, political figures on the right and the left sanitize, sterilize and ultimately obscure the essence of what abortion really is:
the willful destruction of a human life for mostly non-medical reasons.
Don’t believe us, believe Faye Wattleton (the longest serving president of Planned Parenthood) who said in Ms. Magazine,
“Yes, it [abortion] kills a fetus. I think we have deluded ourselves into believing that people don’t know that abortion is killing.”
But, “what about in cases involving the life or health of the mother?” many ask. It turns out, it’s never necessary to perform an abortion for the life or health of the mother — total myth. Don’t believe me? Believe Dr. Alan Guttmacher, the founder and arguably most influential president of, Planned Parenthood, who said:
“Today it is possible for almost any patient to be brought through pregnancy alive … abortion would be unlikely to prolong, much less save, life.”
“There’s a lot of momentum and it’s really hard to argue with this. Public opinion is on our side,” Rep. Cain told Austin’s KXAN Tuesday, Feb. 20. “The heartbeat is kind of this universal sign of life,” he continued.
“Texas is one of eleven state legislatures working to stop a doctor from performing an abortion if a heartbeat is detected. The only exception is if the doctor believes there’s a medical emergency,” NBC affiliate KXAN reported.
Not evewryone agrees that heartbeats matter.
“HB 1500 would ban abortion care before many Texans even know they are pregnant. Briscoe Cain’s six-week abortion ban is nothing but a blatant and dangerous attempt to outright ban all abortion care in Texas. If enacted, it would be the most extreme abortion ban in the nation,” said NARAL Pro-Choice Texas Executive Director Aimee Arrambide in a statement.
“Politicians should be working to advance access to the full range of reproductive healthcare, including abortion care – not making it more difficult. Shame on Briscoe Cain and all anti-abortion legislators who have signed on in support of this dangerous bill, and for putting their ideological beliefs over public health.
Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.
At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.
Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.
“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.
I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.
“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:
This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.
I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.
Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.
“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”
“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.
“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.
Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.
A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.
Election Day will be on September 29.
Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
