Texas Governor Greg Abbott spoke with Joe ‘Pags’ Pagliarulo Wednesday just hours after a draft Supreme Court opinion leaked to the press, saying abortion should be regulated by elected officials – not judges.
“Somebody leaked a draft opinion that says the Supreme Court is ready to overturn Roe V Wade. Give me your thoughts on this?” asked Pags.
“Roe V Wade will be stricken down because abortion should be handled by the states. Texas is a pro-life state. This is going to be a monumental decision that comes out. It will be transformative on this issue,” said Abbott.
“The Constitution is not difficult to read,” added Pagliarulo. “It says anything not covered in this document must be decided by the states.”
“Abortion is not in the Constitution, so it is in the hands of the states,” explained the Governor.
Watch Abbott’s comments above.
This version of the Supreme Court will eventually find a way to overturn Roe v. Wade. This leak may be sensationalized bait, but I have no doubt that it will happen, and the right of a woman to choose what to do with her body will no longer be protected on a federal level. When this happens, I believe that Texas will outlaw abortion.
Some Texas lawmakers are already arguing to allow women who receive an abortion to be charged with assault or homicide. I am no lawyer, but the “murder of a child less than 15 years of age” qualifies as capital murder, and is therefore eligible for the death penalty. Will Texas execute women who get abortions? If not, these crimes carry prison sentences of years. Could you send a single mother to prison, forcing her children into a deeply flawed child care system? Or making a father a single parent?
Just think of how you would feel if it was your daughter, your wife, your niece who was in this impossible situation. Would you turn away from her and allow the state to decide her fate? Maybe that’s what it will take for you to finally realize that the government is going too far invading our privacy…
You miss the point all together. First it’s not the mothers body that’s affected it’s the baby who gets murdered. You did at least admit that the fetus is a child under 15. Also if privacy is the issue then if I murder someone in the privacy of my own home am I exempt from punishment? Third. When a man kills a pregnant woman or her unborn child he will be held responsible for the death of that child. What gives a woman the right to murder her child. And lastly. It’s not an impossible situation. The woman chose this path. She should be responsible.
Love ya Pags.
It is a sad sad day when the health of desperate women is swept aside by a mob of self-righteous opinionated people who can’t be bothered to understand the devastating ramifications of their acts. As an unwanted child forced to survive, I am so very sorry for the next generation of victims forced to be born. Unless wealthy, educated, kind people are willing to take in all of these broken children, they will become, as history has shown, VICTIMS for the predators roaming the earth, enslaving, raping, using in whatever twisted manner these sidelined children, PEOPLE, who have fallen through the cracks. And then there are the bullies who ensure the indoctrination of these headless characters of mindlessness, to whatever their agenda, be it juvenile tape, fights to the death, begging for food, light, or just the right to retain all of their own body parts. There are more Fagans than there are Buddhas/Christs/Mother Teresas on this orb. I do not appreciate the government, national, federal, state, county, city nor any entity religious, band, group, club, etc. ad Infinitum, documenting, referring, legislating, etc. what I chose to do with my body!! Nor do I believe others want any agency interfering with their decisions either!
