U.S. Town Declares Itself a ‘Sanctuary City’ — for Unborn Babies

By The Blaze. The five member city council of Waskom, Texas, has declared the small town a “sanctuary city,” but not for illegal aliens, for unborn children.

The vote took place before a packed house and was unanimously in favor of banning abortion and declaring pro-choice laws to be unconstitutional.

The ordinance says pro-abortion laws are “unconstitutional usurpations of judicial power, which violate both the Tenth Amendment the Republican Form of Government Clause, and are null and void in the City of Waskom.”

Mark Lee Dickson, the East Texas Director of Right to Life, told WETK-TV that the vote was in response to the “fetal heartbeat bill” in Louisiana.

“So we decided to take things into our own hands, and that we have got to do something to protect our cities, and to protect the unborn children,” said Dickson. (Read more from “U.S. Town Declares Itself a ‘Sanctuary City’ — for Unborn Babies” HERE)

Waskom Unanimously Declares Itself a ‘Sanctuary City for the Unborn’

By East Texas Matters. . .The ordinance was approved unanimously at a city council meeting Tuesday night before a packed house.

The ordinance declares Roe vs. Wade and other laws permitting abortion “to be unconstitutional usurpations of judicial power, which violate both the Tenth Amendment the Republican Form of Government Clause, and are null and void in the City of Waskom.”

Mark Lee Dickson, director of the anti-abortion group East Texas Right to Life, said the declaration was a response to Louisiana’s passage of a so-called “fetal heartbeat bill” banning abortion once a fetus’ heartbeat is detected.

Should that bill shut down abortion clinics in Louisiana, Dickson said, he doesn’t want any to open in Waskom. . .

Those behind the declaration say it’s all in an effort to make it to the Supreme Court in a challenge to Roe vs. Wade and win. (Read more from “Waskom Unanimously Declares Itself a ‘Sanctuary City for the Unborn'” HERE)
