Pat Robertson Alabama Abortion

Pat Robertson, the Christian media mogul and host of “The 700 Club” on television, slammed the state of Alabama’s attempt to safeguard the lives of the unborn as an “ill considered” and “extreme law” on Wednesday.

“I think it’s ill considered,” said Robertson. “I think Alabama has gone too far, they’ve passed a law that would a 99 year prison sentence to people that commit abortion, there’s no exception for rape or incest, it’s an extreme law,” he added.

Robertson said he believes the law will be challenged by the Supreme Court and will ultimately be struck down by the country’s highest court.

“They want to challenge Roe vs. Wade but my humble view is that this is not the case we want to bring to the Supreme Court because I think this will lose.”

He did however clarify that he does not support Roe vs. Wade, and called it a “phony case” orchestrated by the American Civil Liberties Union.

The bill makes no exemptions for rape or incest, but does allow women to abort their baby if “the life of the mother was at risk; when the fetus had a lethal anomaly that would result in stillbirth or death after childbirth, or when a mental illness could lead to the woman’s death or that of her child” according to The Montgomery Advertiser.

While the law is expected to be challenged by the ACLU, Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey is expected to sign it into law after reviewing it later this week.

Texas City Stands Up for Life by Passing Pro-Life Ordinance

Planned Parenthood is not welcome.

Published

The town of New Home, located south of Lubbock, became the 15th city in Texas to prohibit abortion on September 29, 2020.

The New Home city council unanimously voted for the resolution following state politicians and local officials discussing the idea of bringing back a Planned Parenthood facility to the city. New Home Baptist pastor L.J. Wright was a champion of this pro-life effort and hopes that the vote will change Lubbock’s city council decision to bring back Planned Parenthood.

“With the City Council in Lubbock seemingly balking at the ordinance while claiming to be Pro-Life, this puts the pressure directly on them,” Wright commented. “Every city in Lynn County should consider following suit with New Home, and get behind Mark Lee Dickson… I am challenging all of West Texas to stand up for life, and make their city a Sanctuary City for the Unborn.”

Mark Lee Dickson, a pro-life activist and director of Right to Life of East Texas, crafted this ordinance.

Texas Senator Charles Perry, who represents Lubbock, has sent a petition around requesting that Planned Parenthood be kept out of Lubbock and signed on a letter calling Lubbock to pass a similar ordinance.

“Passing an ordinance designating Lubbock as a Sanctuary City for the Unborn will help to continue the Texas belief that life begins at conception, while also protecting the safety of mothers,” Perry wrote in the letter, which was also signed by State Representatives Dustin Burrows and John Frullo.

Similar to the other cities who have passed such ordinances, New Home’s ordinance implements the abortion ban by imposing fines on abortion providers. The catch is that this ordinance will go into effect once Roe v. Wade is overturned. Providers will also be held liable for carrying out abortions, and families who have children that were aborted will now be able to sue them.

The Texas reported that “Waskom, Naples, Joaquin, Tenaha, Gilmer, Westbrook, Rusk, Colorado City, Gary, Big Spring, Wells, Whiteface, and East Mountain are the other cities that have adopted the ordinance, modeled by Dickson. The town of Omaha adopted the ordinance but later pulled its teeth, making it a symbolic resolution instead.”

Texans are getting fed up with the inaction of legislators at the state and federal level. So, they’re taking matters into their own hands at the local level. Similar to Second Amendment Sanctuary resolutions, these pro-life movements represent a growing dissatisfaction with the political status quo and are likely a sign of how politics will be conducted from here on out.
