Ted Cruz blasted the Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt Supreme Court decision on abortion access in Texas as “profoundly disappointing” in a Facebook post on Monday.
“The Supreme Court sided with abortion extremists who care more about providing abortion-on-demand than they do protecting women’s health,” the former presidential candidate wrote.
Cruz insisted that the fight will go on and “We will continue to stand resolutely to defend unborn life because we know that every life is a gift from God, and without life there is no liberty.”
And while many conservatives praised Cruz’s strong stance others were equally perturbed by the lack of response by Donald Trump.
The presumptive Republican presidential nominee, though never shy to express his feelings on social media, stayed silent on the ruling.
But he did circulate talking points following the decision that again asserted his commitment to appoint conservative justices to the Supreme Court, according to POLITICO.
“Mr. Trump has released a list of 11 potential Supreme Court justices that he would consider for appointment if elected,” the talking points read. “The list has been routinely praised as example of strong, conservative people who will uphold the Constitution and fight to stop liberal judicial activism that we have seen under President Obama.”
Still his silence on social media has concerned some conservatives because he has, in the past, described himself as “very pro-choice.”
Trump has always maintained that he, himself, disliked the idea of abortion and, in his most recent statements on the topic, he is clear that he believes the issue should be left up to the states.
