Texas Governor Greg Abbott has joined a growing chorus of Republicans calling for the first U.S. constitutional convention since 1787.

Abbott laid out nine proposed amendments in making his announcement, one of which would prohibit the Supreme Court to invalidate a state law without a supermajority of seven justices.

Abbott laid out his proposals in a 92-page plan titled Restoring The Rule Of Law With States Leading The Way.

β€œThe Supreme Court is a co-conspirator in abandoning the Constitution,” Abbott said. β€œInstead of applying laws as written, it embarrassingly strains to rewrite laws like Obamacare.”

As Texas' attorney general, Abbott defended the state's constitutional amendment excluding gay and lesbian couples from marriage. Under Abbott's proposal, the Supreme Court's landmark 5-4 ruling striking down such bans would not have taken effect.
