Left-Wing Progressives Sue Florida For Protecting Babies

June 3rd, 2022 9:20 AM

Saving babies is apparently a ‘brazen attempt to override the will’ of Floridians.

On Wednesday, the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida (ACLU) filed a lawsuit to challenge the state’s 15-week abortion ban, claiming that it “violates privacy and constitutional rights,” according to UPI.

Back in April, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) signed House Bill 5 into law which prohibits abortions past 15 weeks gestation. This is a big win for the pro-life movement, especially considering that the bill does not exempt pregnancies as a result of “rape, incest or human trafficking," but rather values all unborn human life. The ACLU lawsuit aims to block the law before it goes into effect on July 1.

UPI reported:

The lawsuit filed Wednesday accuses the act of violating the fundamental privacy rights protected by the state's Constitution, denying residents the autonomy over their own bodies and undermining the ability to make personal healthcare decisions without government interference.

In truth, the residents that are being denied the “autonomy over their own bodies” are the residents of their mother’s womb who’s lives are terminated during the process of an abortion, which is why DeSantis signed this pro-life law in the first place. 

But the ACLU of Florida has claimed that killing babies is a “fundamental constitutional right," despite the right to murder an innocent child not actually being listed in the U.S. Constitution - and, last I checked, Florida is on U.S. soil.

The ACLU also said that restricting abortion rights causes “irreparable harm" to the mother - while ignoring the harm done to the child, who is either chemically killed or has its limbs vacuumed out one by one. (That’s apparently not irreparable harm. Perhaps they think that baby bits can be repaired after an abortion?)

The ACLU legal director, on behalf of the two Planned Parenthood clinics and other abortion providers filing the suit, argues that DeSantis’ bill “ignores the real life circumstances of people who need an abortion and deliberately puts them in harms way.” 

Yeah, no.

Andrew Shirvell, executive director of Christian anti-abortion lobbying group Florida Voice for the Unborn, deemed the lawsuit “meaningless, arguing the Florida Constitution does not directly mention the right to abortion,” according to UPI.

Shirvell released a statement immediately following ACLU’s lawsuit: 

Florida Voice for the Unborn predicts that the pro-abortion lawsuit filed today will end up back-firing on the Florida abortion industry because this case most likely will service as a vehicle by which the Florida Supreme Court will overturn its misguided precedents that wrongly interpreted the state Constitution as guaranteeing Florida women the right to obtain an abortion independent of the federal Constitution.

Shirvell was spot on. The Florida Constitution does not grant the right to murder an innocent child, and this lawsuit does nothing except prove that Florida leftists are unashamedly anti-life.
