Inslee Official ‘Dodges’ Question of Legality on Reproductive Pact
Following the Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision (which did NOT BAN abortion, it turned it back over to the states as far as deciding yes or no) Gov. Inslee wasted no time in acting to 'protect women's reproductive rights,' However Jason Rantz of AM 770 KTTH has noted, Inslee and his WA Democrats are not pro-choice, they're pro-abortion.
He formed another of his infamous (and illegal?) pacts with the Governors of OR and CA, as he did years ago with climate change and the COVID vax rollout. We looked up the Constitution, specifically Article 1, Section 10 Clause 3, which specifically forbids states from entering into any kind of pact: (from the US Constitution)
"No State shall, without the Consent of Congress, lay any Duty of Tonnage, keep Troops, or Ships of War in time of Peace, enter into any Agreement or Compact with another State, or with a foreign Power, or engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay."
We ran this by Mike Faulk, his Deputy Press Secretary, and Communications Director, and asked for his comment. This is the email we sent:
