TALLAHASSEE, Florida (LifeSiteNews) – Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis blasted a lawsuit against Florida’s 15-week abortion ban, saying he is “confident this law will stand.”
Last week, DeSantis assured Floridians that his pro-life law will stand against the pro-abortion American Civil Liberties Union’s (ACLU) suit against the ban on abortions after 15 weeks, as reported by National Right to Life News Today.
In a statement concerning the lawsuit, DeSantis’ office stated it is “confident that this law will ultimately withstand all legal challenges.”
Signed on April 14, HB 5 prohibits all abortions after 15 weeks, almost four months, except in the rare instance of severe fetal anomaly, to save the mother’s life, or to prevent substantial and irreversible physical impairment of the mother.
Previously, abortions were permitted though the 24th week or the beginning of the sixth month of pregnancy. The new law is scheduled to go into effect on July 1.
“It’s a statement of our values that every life is important,” DeSantis said as he signed the bill while surrounded by lawmakers, pro-life advocates, and children.
At a time of global instability, nuclear tensions and war in Europe, the US Armed Forces have embarrassed themselves by taking a time-out to promote "Pride Month" among the watching world.
This wrongheaded preoccupation with the LGBT ideology across society is weakening our country in a number of ways, not least as it undermines the bedrock of society - the family.
It's time to tell the Secretary of Defense, Lloyd Austin, that we have had enough LGBT propaganda in the armed forces.
SIGN the petition - remind the Secretary of Defense that "Pride Month" only makes us weaker.
Marking the start of Gay Pride Month this week, the US Marines tweeted an image of a military helmet with 6 bullets in LGBT rainbow colors and the words "ready to serve" written on it.
Many responses highlighted the foolishness of an army, who wish to be feared, promoting such ideologies.
This comparison of recruitment videos from the Chinese, Russian and US armies shows how the LGBT ideology has infiltrated our country and taken military focus away from strength on the battlefield.
How can the U.S. be respected as a super-power by our enemies if we continue to make our armed forces more effeminate, being prouder of the rainbow flag than the Stars and Stripes?
The woke agenda of normalizing LGBT behaviors among children, adults and the armed forces is a war on reality, as more and more young people find themselves confused about their gender, their attractions, and even what the purpose of sex is.
Our Air Force's success has literally nothing to do with the subjective sense of sexual fulfillment of its members https://t.co/00D99yQY2p— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) June 1, 2022
To understand how pervasive the LGBT ideology is, consider this: only 1.3% of those born before 1946 identified as LGBT in March 2021, compared to a whopping 15% of young people born between 1997-2002.
Mainstream media, educational institutions, politicians, and even some of the armed forces are conditioning the public to believe this is normal and healthy - it's not.
While all people must be respected, not all behaviors should be celebrated or condoned, lest society become decadent, degenerate and too selfish to make sacrifices.
SIGN the petition to remind the Secretary of Defense that he serves the Stars and Stripes, not the rainbow flag.
The need for virtue both in society and the armed forces is great, in order to strengthen this country's ability to choose what is good and defend it.
In choosing to promote sexual behaviors and gender identities that are not based in nature, the armed forces have chosen vice instead of virtue.
Promoting the sexual revolution and other fashionable trends will have consequences, one of them being the decline of true and good men and women willing to stand by their families, their country and their flag during times of hardship.
Tell the Secretary of Defense that time-tested values matter, and the LGBT ideology should not be promoted.
Thank you for taking the time to sign our petition.

“We are here today to defend those who can’t defend themselves,” he added. “This will represent the most significant protections for life that we have seen in a generation.”
On Wednesday, the ACLU of Florida acted on behalf of two Planned Parenthood facilities and other abortion providers in the state. The ACLU filed a lawsuit seeking an injunction against the bill. The ACLU claimed the bill violates the “right” to an abortion and privacy rights which they allege are protected by the state’s Constitution.
This bill is part of a flood of pro-life bills being passed throughout the country in expectation of the potential overturning of Roe v. Wade. Recently, Oklahoma, Idaho, and Florida have all passed legislation to protect the unborn.
