Texas Dems who fled state to avoid vote sue Abbott for ‘distress’

The Texas Democrats that fled the their state on a private plane several weeks ago to avoid a vote on new election laws are now suing Governor Greg Abbott for causing them ‘distress.’

Remember, it was these lawmakers who caught COVID-19 on their trip to D.C. That was shortly after taking and posting a selfie of themselves on the plane without masks on. Mind you, these lawmakers have no problem reprimanding the public for not wearing masks but they apparently have a different set of rules for themselves.

It’s actually like watching a really bad 1970s film and hoping the ending will make sense, which of course, it never does.

The Democratic lawmakers noted in their complaint that the distress they are feeling is due to Abbott’s threat to arrest them when they returned to the state for actually not doing the job they are required to do.

In my opinion, their actions are not only embarrassing but expose the fragility and weakness of the Democratic Party. Come on Republican Party, there is no reason why there should ever be a threat of Texas going blue.

On Friday, 22 of the Democrats filed a complaint in federal court in Austin claiming that Republican attempts to bring them home for a special legislative session is a violation of their rights.The plaintiffs claim they ‘have been deprived of liberty for substantial periods of time, [and] suffered much anxiety and distress over the separation from their families.They also say they have suffered from ‘much discomfort and embarrassment’ because their reputations have been ‘impaired’.In addition to Abbott, GOP House Speaker Dade Phelan and State Rep. James White are also named as defendants in the suit.

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.
