Yesterday was a sad day in the life of our nation. Unfortunately, five judges on the Supreme Court struck down key provisions of Texas’ pro-life omnibus bill, HB 2.
HB 2 did not ban abortions in Texas, however, it ensured the safety of the mothers, requiring doctors who provide abortions to have admitting privileges at surrounding hospitals, and mandating that abortion providers upgrade their facilities to conform with higher standards of care.
Since 1973, the Roe v. Wade decision has resulted in almost 60 million unborn children losing their lives to the abortion procedure. Please pray for our nation. We the the people cannot allow the government to continue to devalue life. We must continue to fight for the life of the unborn.
This decision puts the lives of Texas mothers in jeopardy and tramples on our Tenth Amendment right to determine what is in the best interest of Texans.
