PFLUGER: Responding to Radical Climate Change Activists


Pro-Life Victory in Court

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Texas Insider Report) — Senator Bernie Sanders recently published an op-ed in Fox News titled "Climate Change Is a Threat to Our Planet — And We Must Address It" calling for urgent action to address climate change by shifting away from fossil fuels entirely. All Americans can agree that we need clean air and water, but Senator Sanders’ exclusively anti-fossil fuels stance oversimplifies a complex issue and threatens the supply of energy for Americans, our allies around the globe, and developing economies.

In response, I published a piece arguing that we must embrace American energy sources like liquified natural gas (LNG) to simultaneously lower harmful emissions, strengthen U.S. security and economic prowess, lift impoverished communities worldwide, and bolster democratic values.
  Pro-Life Victory in Court
This week, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine v. FDA found that the Biden Administration's Food and Drug Administration (FDA) likely violated the law when it deregulated the dangerous life-ending chemical abortion pill Mifepristone. The favorable ruling limits online ordering and purchasing without proper medical consultation or oversight.
 
I am glad to see the Fifth Circuit struck down the Biden Administration's disregard for the safety of women and blatant politicization of the FDA—which is tasked with ensuring products are safe for Americans.
 
The ruling is a win for protecting the lives of the unborn and the safety of mothers. I am proud to have led the House of Representatives on an Amicus Brief to the Court on this important issue.

First Day of School
It's hard to believe the summer is already over and our kids are back to school. I was lucky to be able to drive my three wonderful daughters to their first day of classes this week.

Back in March, the House passed H.R. 5, the Parents Bill of Rights, which I was proud to co-sponsor. The Parents Bill of Rights enshrines five basic rights that every parent will have when their kids are in school:
 
  1. Right to know what’s being taught in schools and to see reading material
  2. Right to be heard
  3. Right to see the school budget and spending
  4. Right to protect their child’s privacy
  5. Right to be updated on any violent activity at school
All school districts should readily adopt these ideals and restore the importance of parents and families in education.

Good luck to all of our Texas-11 students, families, and educators! We are wishing you a safe and fantastic school year filled with growth, discovery, and achievement.
