Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar has mainstream news websites’ mouths watering. They lap this stuff up almost as much as they do Liz Cheney whining about former President Donald Trump. Salazar has made a proclamation that he is not going to enforce anti-abortion laws in Texas, specifically as it pertains to women.
While it may be admirable that he is thinking of women whom he thinks did nothing wrong in his heart, he is signaling that he will not uphold the law if he doesn’t like it. But normally in red states when sheriffs speak out it is not for left-wing ideals, it is usually something to do with gun laws. Salazar: “It is absolutely none of my business. I will not persecute Texas women or anyone else pursuing those same rights.” CBS reported on Salazar’s statement in full:
“I’m the Sheriff of Bexar County, but also a Dad of two beautiful and intelligent young women. As their Dad I will defend my daughters’ ability to do what they feel is right with their own bodies and to love whomever they choose. As their Dad, I have no control over their adult bodies. As their Sheriff, it is absolutely none of my business. I will not persecute Texas women or anyone else pursuing those same rights.
Shame on the Supreme Court and the bureaucrats in Washington D.C. and Austin who are attempting to impose their own supposed morals on others. They will not use my badge or the color of my office to do so. My job is chasing predators, rapists, and human traffickers, not someone exercising a right.
If it’s religion those career politicians would like to enforce, then they should remember that there are many other commandments in scripture that they themselves have very publicly chosen to ignore.
If it’s truly about protecting children, how about starting with the ones in our schools?”
Right now, various left-leaning courts are trying to block red state abortion bans. Only time will tell if they succeed and if Salazar keeps his job upon not upholding the laws, as he signals may happen. CBS reported also in part:
Similar to Sheriff Salazar, Dallas County District Attorney John Creuzot also released a statement suggesting he won’t prosecute cases against women who get an abortion.
“I want women across Texas and especially here in Dallas County, to rest assured that my office will not stand in the way of them seeking the health care they need,” Creuzot said.
Tarrant County District Attorney Sharen Wilson sent a statement to CBS 11 as well.
“Prosecutors do not make the law – we follow it,” Wilson said. “We followed Roe v. Wade when it was the law, and we will follow Texas state law now.”
The right is happy that the Supreme Court overturned Roe Vs. Wade. However, now they are shocked that Brett Kavanaugh and John Roberts voted with leftists to allow Joe Biden to cancel former President Trump’s remain in Mexico policy. See more on that:
