Small Texas Town Declares Itself A Sanctuary City For Fetuses

The city of Waskom, Texas, has outlawed abortions and declared itself a “sanctuary city for the unborn.”

The all-white, all-male city council for the city of Waskom, Texas, declared the small town in East Texas a “sanctuary city for the unborn,” according to The Washington Post.

The decision to outlaw abortion in this small town near the Louisiana border contradicts the rulings of the U.S Supreme Court established in Roe v. Wade. Waskom is one of many conservative strongholds passing abortion bans now that a majority of the Supreme Court leans conservative.

In Texas, abortions are banned after 20 weeks, and a new bill on the governor's desk would require doctors to treat and help a child born alive after a failed abortion, which which is a rare event.

Waskom is following the example of a 7 to 1 vote by the city council of Roswell, New Mexico, also banning abortions in their town, made famous by a supposed UFO crash in 1947. Using language normally employed by cities in relation to immigrant rights, these two towns declared themselves “sanctuary cities for the unborn.”

The audience at the chambers of the Waskom city council broke into applause at the unanimous vote. City officials said the ruling included exceptions for rape and incest and when the mother’s life is at risk.

The guy in the middle without his hand up is thinking " I'm sorounded by dumbasses" lol those geezers with their hands in the air, are they going to vote to give aid to the poor mother that can't afford to leave her job ? No...they think that's socialism. Are they going to save the mothers life she was told she Likley will die from birth? No ..they think if God wants her to die then she will. Are they also going to vote to take in young refugee children? No ..they think they should be shipped back. Are they going to vote to pay for the counselor and therapy for the mother that's a rape victim? No .. and when these fetuses show up still inside the mother they are going to say, no we just meant for the fetus to come here. This is an old geezer concervative political stunt, they will go home and brag how they are Patriots for making up this bullshit nonsense , while pretending that makes up for their racist stance on imigration..' merica.
