The Texas Abortion Ban Goes Dixie-wide

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Florida has announced that lawmakers are working on an imitation of Texas’ recent ban on abortion post-6 weeks.

Mississippi, North Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, and Oklahoma, all of whom have had abortion bans struck down by federal courts, should follow suit immediately, and force the hands of the regime. They wanted gender studies in Afghanistan, and after 20 years, they got nothing. Well, they wanted dead American babies, and 50 years after Roe, they’re getting Southern steel.

From LifeSite News:

In light of Texas’s historic heartbeat law prohibiting abortions in cases where a baby’s heartbeat can be detected, Florida is reportedly looking to follow suit, with two Republican lawmakers revealing that similar pro-life laws are underway in the Sunshine State.

Florida Senate President Wilton Simpson (R-Trilby) spoke to a Tampa-based radio station Thursday, stating that a Florida bill similar to Texas’s is “something we’re already working on.” Sen. Simpson was supported by Florida’s pro-life Gov. Ron DeSantis, who welcomed the Texas act and told journalists that he would examine the law, adding that he has “always been somebody that really does support protections for life.”

The Abbott-DeSantis axis is clearly doing the heavy lifting for rehabilitating the GOP’s image after four years of Trump’s undelivered promises. It’s a better bet than the Midwestern gambit, a la Paul Ryan and John Boehner.

Even though this effort currently only covers two states, these are the two largest states in the South. Florida and Texas set the tone for GOP politics across the South, and if the geniuses running the GOP have finally realized the Dixians don’t like infanticide, the smart move on their part is to export Texas’ recent legal victory over Mammon to every Southern state and force the issue. The feds will call it a “constitutional crisis,” but all it really is is “standing on principle.”

Remember when Southern governors used to stand on principle?

The resistance boiling over isn’t just on abortion. Southern states are gathered together, resisting the regime’s attempts to erase God-given gender, and expose children to sex predators. Also from LifeSite News:

Tennessee Attorney General Herbert Slatery filed the complaint on Monday against the Department of Education (DOE) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) with the U.S. District Court in Knoxville, Fox News reported. A statement from Slatery’s office said that the lawsuit “seeks to stop the Biden Administration from enforcing new, expansive, and unlawful interpretations of federal antidiscrimination laws.”

Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, and West Virginia have all joined the case.

Gail Jarvis over at Reckonin’ put it colorfully:

This cabal of smug , self-important prodigies who have usurped Constitutional powers and make decisions for we uninformed denizens of middle America. Because of their wealth, power, and position, they are essentially the upper echelon of society. But even though some might have expertise in certain fields, they aren’t necessarily capable of determining what constitutes social justice or what heritage is acceptable.

It’s a pretty clear dividing line: you either believe babies can be killed legally, sodomy can make a marriage, children can be mutilated, and child sex predators are an “oppressed class…” or you believe Christ is King.  Southern governors should put up massive resistance at every step to the regime’s Culture of Death agenda, and form a common front against anti-Christian tyranny.

The building blocks are already here, and the Left ain’t getting any nicer.

From Arizona to Tennessee, all of Dixie should be free.

Saint Pius X, ora pro nobis!
