Abortion has “no support in the text, structure, or history of the Constitution.’’

Editor’s note. Many pro-life Republican gave floor speeches in response to oral arguments in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the case heard by the Supreme Court regarding the Mississippi law that protects unborn babies after the 15th week. We will repost two a day.

Rep. Tim Burchett

Tim Burchett (R-TN). Mr. Speaker, yesterday, our U.S. Supreme Court Justices held oral arguments in the Dobbs v. Jackson case, which addressed the constitutionality of Mississippi’s law banning abortions after 15 weeks. It is time to get rid of the rules that prevent our legislators from enacting the will of the people and passing laws to protect the unborn. Mr. Speaker. Chief Justice John Roberts once argued that the right to abortion has ‘‘no support in the text, structure, or history of the Constitution.’’ I pray he and the eight other Justices uphold that view in Dobbs v. Jackson. They know the ability to murder unborn children is not one of our fundamental rights. 

The Biden administration suspended basic healthcare regulations so doctors could pass out abortion pills like candy, Mr. Speaker. It is time for our third branch of government to step up now, show some common sense, and make the right decision to protect millions of our unborn babies. In closing, Mr. Speaker, I always remember a story that happened shortly before my momma left this Earth. She was in hospice, and she started talking to folks that had passed a long time before her: my daddy, her daddy, her brother who died in the Second World War. 

She was looking off at one point, and I said: ‘‘What are you looking at, Momma?’’ And she said: ‘‘Baby, I am looking at all of those sweet little babies over there.’’ I can’t help but think some of those sweet little babies my sweet momma was looking at were some of the unborn that were murdered in abortion.
