Zimmerman's lawsuit is potentially VERY far reaching

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you;
Before you were born I sanctified you;
I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”
Jeremiah 1:5

By now, we assume you've heard about Don Zimmerman's latest lawsuit against the City of Austin:
On Wednesday, Don Zimmerman, a former Austin City Council member and current candidate for Texas House District 47, filed a lawsuit against the city of Austin over its budget amendment that provides $150,000 to assist women seeking abortions with logistical costs such as transportation.

The funds are intended by proponents of the bill to go to pro-choice organizations such as Fund Texas Choice and The Bridge Collective, which help women get abortions.

The lawsuit was filed the day after the city council approved the new budget and abortion amendment.
There's a lot that could be said about Zim's lawsuit, but we found the following section most interesting:
The city's expenditures, however, violate another Texas statute that imposes criminal liability on anyone who "furnishes the means for procuring an abortion knowing the purposes intended." 2A Texas Penal Code Article 1192, at 433 (1961).
Bottom Line: It doesn't take a genius to see the implications there.
