Pro-life lawmakers strategizing on how to stop citizens from getting abortions in other states
By Mary Villareal // Jul 13, 2022

The overturn of Roe v. Wade marks a new era in the United States as many states are expected to go back to their pre-Roe laws against abortion.


However, not all states are deigned to do so. That's why pro-life legislators and attorneys are looking for ways to stop people in their states from getting abortions elsewhere.

The Thomas More Society is now drafting model legislation for state lawmakers that would allow private citizens to sue those who would help residents of a state that has banned abortion from terminating a pregnancy outside of the state. The language used in the draft will borrow from the novel legal strategy behind a separate Texas abortion ban enacted in 2021, wherein private citizens were empowered to enforce the law through civil litigation.

The subject was discussed at two national anti-abortion conferences last weekend with several lawmakers interested in introducing such bills in their own states.

An attorney with the Thomas More Society said: "Just because you jump across a state line doesn't mean your home state doesn't have jurisdiction. It’s not a free abortion card when you drive across the state line."

Arkansas State Senator Jason Rapert, president of the National Association of Christian Lawmakers, compared abortion to human trafficking. "Many of us have supported legislation to stop human trafficking. So why is there a pass on people trafficking women in order to make money off of aborting their babies?"

His group also strategized on how to stop women from leaving pro-life states for those with liberal abortion policies. For instance, states like Illinois are expected to see women coming from Michigan, Ohio and Indiana. (Related: STUNNER: Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade abortion ruling in draft decision; leak to media aimed at inciting violence, "civil war.")

Missouri State Representative Mary Elizabeth Coleman also proposed a bill in 2021 to allow citizens to sue people who are facilitating abortions, which would empower citizens rather than the state to sue abortionists and anyone else other than the mother, who facilitates an abortion of a baby with a detectable heartbeat.

David Cohen, a professor at Drexel University's Kline School of Law previously predicted that legislators are not going to rest with stopping abortions in their state and will want to ban abortions for citizens as much as they can, even if it means stopping them from traveling.

He also said there could be state-against-state battles that could cause more division regarding the issue.

Liberal states implement laws to protect abortionists

Liberal states, for their part, also implemented laws to stop the prosecution of people who aid and abet abortions. (Related: Leftists make good on “night of rage” riot threats after Roe v. Wade gets overturned.)

In April, Connecticut passed a law that offers broad protection from anti-abortion laws that try to reach into other states, which would shield people from out-of-state summonses or subpoenas issued in cases related to abortion procedures, which are legal in Connecticut.

New Mexico Governor Michele Lujan Grisham also told government agencies not to assist in the prosecution of women who sought out abortion illegally in other states.

In Wisconsin, Governor Tony Evers said he would provide "clemency" for those participating in abortion, which is now illegal in his state due to a pre-Roe ban.
