200 Legislators Urge Trump and Governors To ‘Safely Reopen American Society’

Over 200 legislators from the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) signed onto a letter Thursday urging both President Donald Trump and state governors to “safely reopen American society” as the coronavirus pandemic continues to threaten American jobs and businesses.

Over the last six weeks, nearly 30 million Americans applied for unemployment insurance as thousands of businesses continue to shut their doors unable to sustain operations with sweeping stay-at-home orders still in place in many states.

The group includes dozens of state legislators along with Tea Party Patriots, FreedomWorks, and R Street Institute.

“We need to safely open state economies and restart the American economic engine that was firing on all cylinders prior to the pandemic,” said Jonathan Williams, ALEC Executive Vice President of Policy and Chief Economist. “To expedite our national economic recovery, policymakers should embrace proven free market methods to enhance our competitiveness such as tax relief, deregulation and lawsuit reform. This approach will protect our communities and get America safely back to work.”

The letter emphasizes the need for the country to restore American principles, including limiting the federal government’s power over its citizens. Further, it advocates for “tax relief, deregulation, and lawsuit reform.”

The Trump administration recently released a phased model that state legislators can choose to adopt when they’re ready to reopen their economies, which ALEC’s supporters say is key to maintaining our country’s system of federalism.

States implementing harsh enforcement measures in their efforts to slow the spread of the virus, such as ‘arresting, fining, or harassing’ citizens, the group argues, are violating citizens’ “constitutional protections.”

“For the first time in American history, a national crisis is being addressed through decentralization — with a focus on federalism,” said ALEC CEO Lisa B. Nelson. “One size does not fit all, and we urge the President and our nation’s governors to return society to normal as quickly as possible using the approach and criteria that best fits their circumstances.”

Stacy Abrams: ‘No such thing as heartbeat at 6 weeks’, ‘manufactured’ for men to ‘take control of a woman’s body’

“There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks,” Abrams claimed during an event at the Ray Charles Performing Arts Center in Atlanta last week. “It is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have the right to take control of a woman’s body.”

As National Review reports, even her own man-hating rhetoric is antithetical to the website of Planned Parenthood which said a “very basic beating heart and circulatory system develop” during the fifth to sixth week of pregnancy.

Planned Parenthood later amended its website to more closely reflect pro-abortion messaging against heartbeat laws, which ban abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected. Now the site says a “part of the embryo starts to show cardiac activity” during that time.

Abrams is running for governor in Georgia in a rematch against incumbent Governor Brian Kemp. Abrams lost to Kemp in 2018 by more than 54,000 votes. Additionally, Abrams has never concededto Kemp and has claimed the 2018 election was “stolen from Georgians.”

Abrams words were to suggest that Georgia’s heartbeat law shouldn’t be referred to as the “Fetal Heartbeat Bill.” Her reasoning? Because “that’s medically false, biologically a lie.”

When The View co-host Alyssa Farah asked Abrams “Do you think there should be any legal limits on abortion, such as the third trimester or viability?” Abrams responded: “I believe that abortion is a medical decision, not a political decision…Arbitrary politically-defined timelines are deeply problematic because they ignore the reality of medical and physiological issues.”

“Abortion is a medical decision, not a political decision … The limit should not be made by politicians who don’t understand basic biology or apparently basic morality,” she added.

Kemp is up 6.6 percentage points in RCP polling average over Abrams.
