Sen. Ted Cruz Slams Prince Harry for Contending the United States Is ‘Rolling Back’ Constitutional Rights – Opinion

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) did not mince words in his criticism of Prince Harry’s speech to the United Nations on Monday, in which he maintained that the United States is contributing to “a global assault on democracy and freedom.”

“From the horrific war in Ukraine, to the rolling back of constitutional rights here in the United States, we are witnessing a global assault on democracy and freedom, the cause of Mandela’s life,” Prince Harry said, as he was the keynote speaker on Nelson Mandela Day.

It can be reasonably inferred that the prince is referencing the Supreme Court’s overruling of Roe V. WadeThis was the agency that sent the matter of abortion access to the state, but without directly naming it.

In Prince Harry’s former homeland of the United Kingdom, women are able to get an abortion up to 24 weeks, and sometimes after that for serious medical reasons, according to the National Health Service. Many women who choose to have an abortion cite mental health concerns as the reason they are unable to proceed with their pregnancy.

Cruz decided to take a different approach to the liberal prince’s remarks, in order to highlight some other rights that he believes are currently at stake.

“Miraculous: Prince Harry calls out Joe Biden’s ‘rolling back of Constitutional Rights in the United States’ as ‘a global assault on democracy & freedom,’” Cruz tweeted.

“Who would have thought the prince would speak out in support of free speech, religious liberty & the Second Amendment?” he continued.

This member of the British royals decided to travel to America two years ago. However, his thoughts seem to be primarily American. He has the right under the Constitution to express his opinions on public platforms without being punished by the government. That is the beauty of America.

While it may have been about other rights that the prince spoke of, it seems safe to assume that he was speaking about abortion. This topic continues to be a major issue in U.S. national debate.
