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.
