The small city of Waskom, Texas, declared itself a “sanctuary city” for the unborn after it unanimously passed a resolution virtually outlawing abortion of any kind within its city limits. The ordinance specifically declares “Roe vs. Wade and other laws permitting abortion ‘to be unconstitutional usurpations of judicial power, which violate both the Tenth Amendment the Republican Form of Government Clause, and are null and void in the City of Waskom.” City leaders hope to be sued over the measure in order to take their case before the Supreme Court. If the Waskom move catches on, look for dozens more cities around the U.S.-largely in the South-to get in on the action.

The local government in a small Texas city on the border with Louisiana has declared itself a “sanctuary city” for the unborn.
The city of Waskom, Texas passed a resolution Tuesday virtually outlawing abortion of any kind within the limits of the city of less than 3,000 people.
“Sanctuary city,” is the official term for American cities that have publicly said they will not cooperate with federal immigration officials looking to find and deport illegal migrants.
