Interim AL Senator Doug Jones Condemned By Alabama Senate For Supporting Late-Term Abortion

Abortion is NOT a popular thing in Alabama.

Alabama’s interim Senator Doug Jones has been officially condemned by the Alabama State Senate because of his support for late-term abortion. The resolution condemning him comes in response to Jones voting against the “Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act,” which would have prohibited abortion after the 20th week of a pregnancy.

Republican State Sen. Bill Hightower,who sponsored the measure, explained the reasoning in a public statement:

“Senator Jones owes the people of Alabama an explanation for turning his back on a campaign promise he made just a few short months ago,” Hightower’s statement read. “More importantly, Senator Jones needs to explain why he would turn his back on the basic humanity of an individual’s right to life. At 20 weeks in the womb, it is not about a choice, it is about an innocent little baby’s right to live.”

Hightower went on to explain that the science is clear, “at 20 weeks of pregnancy, a child has a heartbeat, a child feels pain.”

During his campaign for U.S. Senate, Jones had stated he was mostly opposed to late term abortion, stating  “the law for decades has been that late-term procedures are generally restricted except in the case of medical necessity. That’s what I support.”

His vote in opposition to a ban on late term abortion in the U.S. Senate clearly shows he has fallen back on his word. That was one of the main points made in the condemnation resolution.

Doug Jones was elected as the interim Senator for Alabama to fill the vacancy left by Jeff Sessions when he joined the Trump Administration as Attorney General. Jones was considered a long-shot candidate prior to the Republican candidate, Judge Roy Moore being smacked with accusations of child sexual assault. Jones had virtually zero chance at winning before the accusations were dropped on Moore.

Judge Moore has strongly denied those claims made against him, and has recently filed a lawsuit against his accusers in order to clear his name.

“The actionable statements were published by you and your political corporation,” Greene’s attorney L. Lin Wood wrote in a letter to Cowan and his Congressional campaign. “The actionable statements were negligently published and were published with actual malice, that is, with actual knowledge of falsity or with a reckless disregard for truth or falsity.”

Wood is referencing Cowan’s campaign ad alleging that her company did not use E-Verify, a federal program designed to keep illegal immigrants from obtaining employment.

However, Wood provided documented proof that her company did in fact use E-Verify to make sure illegals were not given jobs over American workers.

As you can see from the screenshot below, Taylor Construction clearly uses E-Verify

“Rather than confine yourself to a robust debate on issues for the benefit of the voters, you crossed the legal line and wrongfully published false accusations against Ms. Greene and Taylor Commercial, Inc. The false accusations made by you on behalf of your campaign to discredit your political opponent unlawfully exceed the permissible parameters of political speech and makes you, and your campaign, liable for damages for defamation,” Wood asserted in the letter.

Wood is demanding that Cowan retract the ad and issue a public statement apologizing to Greene for making false accusations, or he will likely file a defamation lawsuit against Cowan and his campaign.

The allegedly defamatory campaign ad released by Cowan can be found here (at least, for now):

Big League Politics has reported on Greene for her constitutional campaign ads putting ANTIFA thugs on notice, which have been censored by Facebook.

“I have a message for ANTIFA terrorists,” she said as she locked and loaded her rifle in the controversial campaign ad. “Stay out of Northwest Georgia. You won’t burn our churches, loot our businesses or destroy our homes. It’s time to take our country back, save America, stop socialism!”

The GOP establishment has already set their sights on Greene, as she they know she will be a lawmaker who they will not be able to control. She refuses to apologize or back down as they levy their attacks.

“I will not let them whip me into submission. And the voters of Northwest Georgia will not let the DC Swamp and the Fake News Media tell them who to vote for,” Greene said in a Facebook post.

Greene is considered the front-runner to beat Cowan during the GOP runoff primary election for Georgia’s 14th Congressional seat. The election is scheduled to take place on Aug. 11.
