CURE Praises SCOTUS Decision on Texas Abortion Bill
For immediate release: September 2, 2021
Washington, D.C. – Today the Center for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE), a policy and research center dedicated to fighting poverty and seeking solutions for black families to grow and their communities to flourish, praised the Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision to allow the Texas Heartbeat Act to remain in effect. The Texas law prohibits abortions once a medical professional detects cardiac activity in a child in the womb, around the six-week time-period.
“Bravo for the people of Texas and to the Supreme Court justices who recognize that life is sacred and that protecting life is the most important responsibility of lawmakers and the courts,” said Star Parker, Founder and President of CURE. “This gives the country hope that the unconstitutional Roe v. Wade is soon coming to an end.
“Abortion, like slavery, has been a horrible blight on our society. Slavery lasted for 89 years and did tremendous damage to our country. The horrific act of abortion is a crime against humanity and since the courts allowed it in 1973 there has been a dramatic coarsening of our society and a complete disregard for human life.
“With this decision, there is hope that this blight will end. The Supreme Court can right this wrong in our society by siding with life next year with the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case being heard.
“Every human being is a unique creation in the image of God. Yes, black lives do matter, brown lives matter, all life matters and let’s hope our laws reflect that reality,” said Parker.
