The new abortion law in Texas is making some people on the left a little crazy.
The city of Portland, Oregon, which has been the site of Antifa riots on a near nightly basis for over a year, seems to think it is morally superior to the state of Texas, and wants to boycott business with the state.
What makes them think they’re in a position to do this?

‘Dumpster Fire’ Portland to Vote on Banning Trade, Travel with Texas over Abortion Law
Democrat-run Portland will consider an emergency resolution to bar trade and travel with Texas in protest of the Lone Star State’s abortion heartbeat law.
Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler (D) said the city council will vote on the measure Wednesday aimed at banning “future procurement of goods and services from, and City employee business travel to, the state of Texas.”
“The Portland City Council stands unified in its belief that all people should have the right to choose if and when they carry a pregnancy and that the decisions they make are complex, difficult, and unique to their circumstances,” the mayor said in a Friday statement.
“The ban will be in effect until the state of Texas withdraws its unconstitutional ban on abortion or until it is overturned in court. City legal counsel is currently evaluating the legal aspects of this proposed resolution.”
“This law does not demonstrate concern for the health, safety, and well-being of those who may become pregnant. This law does not recognize or show respect for the human rights of those who may become pregnant.
Doesn’t Portland look kind of foolish here?
Oh Portland, Texas doesn't care.

Most of Oregon doesn't care about Portland, Texas certainly doesn't. Portland produces terrorism and filth.

Doesn’t Portland have bigger problems to solve within its own borders?
