Another city may become ‘sanctuary for the unborn’
One of Texas’ largest cities could soon become the state’s 15th “sanctuary city for the unborn” if pro-life activists have their way. With an estimated population of more than 260,000, Lubbock is the 11th largest city in the Lone Star State. On Aug. 25, State Sen. Charles Perry and State Reps. Dustin Burrows and John Frullo wrote a letter to Lubbock Mayor Dan Pope urging him to enact a sanctuary city ordinance that would ban abortion within city limits. Two weeks after the lawmakers sent the letter to Pope, more than 200 Lubbock residents gathered outside of Lubbock’s citizen’s tower to express support for the proposed ordinance. The letter to Pope comes as Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion business, announced plans to open a new abortion clinic in Lubbock by the end of the year.
Netflix movie criticized
A number of politicians, most of them Republicans, have come out in recent days condemning the new Netflix movie “Cuties,” which has been widely characterized as “child pornography.” Sen. Ted Cruz from Texas wrote in a letter to Attorney General Bill Bar stating, “I urge the department of justice to investigate the production and distribution of this film to determine whether Netflix, its executives, or the individuals involved in the filming and production of ‘Cuties’ violated any federal laws against the production and distribution of child pornography.” Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley asked the company to answer several questions, including about the fact that Netflix rated the movie “TV-MA” for “language” but not for “its graphic sexual content.” The rating “TV-MA” indicates that “these programs are intended to be viewed by mature, adult audiences and may be unsuitable for children under 17.” Sens. Mike Lee of Utah and Tom Cotton Of Arkansas also wrote to Netflix as did Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, the only Democrat to question the movie.
The administration tightens Planned Parenthood funding
President Donald Trump took another step to defund the abortion industry yesterday through a new proposed rule to expand the Mexico City Policy. The pro-life policy has been in place during Republican presidential administrations since Ronald Reagan, defunding the International Planned Parenthood Federation and other abortion groups of hundreds of millions of tax dollars. The new proposed rule could lead to even more cuts to pro-abortion groups. Released yesterday in the Federal Register, it would require all groups that receive global health aid contracts to agree not to promote and/or provide elective abortions, The Hill reports. Those that refuse would not receive taxpayer funding. Abortion activist groups quickly blasted the proposal, claiming it “hurts women and families worldwide.”
