Trouble in Texas? Lone Star State Continues to Fall Down the Pro-Life Ranks

Published

on

Texas Right to Life reported on Texas’s mediocre performance on Right to Life issues in an article it posted on February 3, 2020.

In fact, it fell in pro-life rankings after the 86th Session of the Texas Legislature in 2019.

According to Americans United for Life’s (AUL) annual Life List, Texas is now the 17th most pro-life state in America.

In Texas Right to Life’s view, “This abysmal ranking is a result of gradual apathy over the past decade as ‘Pro-Life’ politicians have chosen to thwart life-saving bills, settling instead for easy ceremonial victories.”

Annually, AUL analyzes the pro-life and pro-abortion laws of each state, which includes newly implemented policies from the year before. Based on how well these laws defend the sanctity of life, AUL ranks all states in the country from most to least pro-life.

Texas used to be a pro-life leader. In 2008, AUL ranked Texas as the 4th most pro-life state in the country. However, by 2015, Texas fell to 10th place and continued its descent.

Texas Right to Life believes “This nosedive in the rankings occurred during the Republican House leadership tenures of Joe Straus and Dennis Bonnen.  Under their reigns, the Pro-Life issue was considered of lesser importance or too controversial, leading to willful dismissal of Pro-Life legislation and missed opportunities to save innocent human lives.”

In the past legislative session, the Texas Legislature refused to pass a bill that would have prevented elective abortion or saved the lives of vulnerable patients.

The Preborn Non-Discrimination Act (PreNDA) was the highest-ranked abortion bill in terms of legislative priorities.  PreNDA would have gotten rid of the remaining late-term abortions in Texas. It also would have prevented the selective targeting of preborn children due to their sex, race, or disability; and, promoted a network of pro-life abortion alternatives for preborn children who have severe disabilities.  Sadly, house leadership killed the bill at the last minute.  Similarly, another pro-life legislative priority would have guaranteed that health care practitioners would not have to carry out or aid in services in which they are conscientious objectors to. For example, services such as abortion, sterilization, and euthanasia would have been covered under this bill.  This bill never even received a hearing, let alone a vote. The failure to pass both of these bills have had a negative impact on Texas’s pro-life rankings.

Such disappointment has been on display with gun-related issues as well. For example, the 2019 legislative session was lackluster for Second Amendment proponents after House leadership killed Constitutional Carry legislation without bringing up the bill for a vote.

Texas politicians would be wise to stop ignoring their grassroots constituents. If they continue to do so, this could result in depressed turnout at the polls, and Democrats coming out on top.

Leftists are Having a Meltdown Over Trump Potentially Winning Minnesota

Published

on

Joshua Klein of Breitbart News reported on a leaked document that the conservative outlet obtained revealing a plan by radical leftist organizations to stoke up unrest in Minnesota after a potential Trump victory.

The group is gearing up for post-election disturbances and is planning to carry out “strategic disruption” on a large scale.

TakeAction Minnesota is leading the charge and is calling for leftists to get out on the streets according to a confidential document being passed around the group’s leadership. The document serves as an instruction manual for what leftists should do out on the streets in the next week.

“We believe that regardless of the strength of the Minnesota election system, mass mobilization will and must happen in Minnesota to defend democracy,” the leaked document stated.

“We expect that this mobilization will create space and opportunity for unrest, primarily in Minneapolis. In this context, the situation could rapidly spiral beyond control depending on the nature of the unrest and the State’s reaction.”

The group alluded to the right-wing, in addition to the Minneapolis Police Department (MPD), as potential actors who will incite or facilitate violence. In light of these facts, Minnesota leftist organizations must be ready for unrest according to the document’s advice.

“The possibility of right-wing violence is real, as is the possibility of MPD inciting or enabling violence,” the document declared. Further, it contended that the MPD is “either disengaged or instigating tension” since the “uprising” that kicked off in the aftermath of George Floyd.

TakeAction Minnesota was heavily involved in the mass movement after the death of George Floyd. They were one of the most vocal groups calling for the abolition of MPD and became a leader in the national push to “defund the police.” After the group made enough noise, a veto-proof majority of the Minneapolis City Council promised to dissolve the Police Department, while vowing to replace it with a new system of public safety.

Leftist groups in Minneapolis expect a wide range of possibilities on November 3 — unclear results, Trump refusing to accept the results, or a suspected case of election interference in the chance that Trump wins.

The document cites an alleged rise in “white nationalist organization and activity” which has generated “multiple nights of infiltrator terror that targeted Black and brown business corridors and nearby neighborhoods” during “the most recent uprisings.”

“It is possible Black churches may also become a target. St. Cloud and Duluth are also two cities to keep in mind given their proximity to large white nationalist geographies and demographic and ideological make-up,” the document cautioned. “Additionally, we know of white nationalist infiltration and organization at Greater Minnesota universities.”

One section titled “Theory of What Will Happen,”  ends up predicting a contested election in Minnesota and other states. This section outlines the groups’ role to “support efforts by the State (led by the Governor, Attorney General and Secretary of State) to resolve the contest rapidly and to prevent right-wing vigilantes, with or without the support of local officials, from interfering with the certification of Minnesota’s electors by the ‘safe harbor’ date [December 8, the last day for states to resolve contested election results]” and “to prevent illegitimate Federal efforts to intervene on behalf of local right-wing groups.”

Should other states have disputed elections, the leftist organizations have vowed a swift response.

“Knowing that there may be energy to join nearby mass mobilizations, we may choose to host actions here to diminish the amount of out-of-state actors activating in that contest,” the document read. “For contests farther away, we will work to maintain public demand as asked to support their work and coordinated via national infrastructure.”

Election Day is quickly coming and Minnesota will be a key battleground state for people to watch. Trump barely lost it by 45,000 votes and as of now Biden is ahead by 48.0 to 43.3 on RealClearPolitics. Win or lose, Minnesota will remain a crucial state for a newly re-aligned GOP’s electoral strategy.

Trump must continue hammering away at his pro-law & order to ensure victory in this state and coast on to a resounding victory in the General Election.
