Urgent Legislative Alert: Texas Pro-Life Bill

June 23, 2013 12:44 pm 1 comment

Please immediately urge your Texas state representative to support Senate Bill 5.

Sunday will be one of the most important days in the Texas Legislature so far!

The Texas State House will meet at 2 PM, Sunday, June 23, to consider SB 5, a critically important pro-life bill. This debate will be the most important of the year. This is an unparalleled opportunity to protect women and innocent unborn babies

Immediately urge your state representative to support SB 5. Your call or email will take two minutes, but they may protect thousands of women and babies from the tragedy of abortion and save many lives.

SB 5, authored by Sen. Glenn Hegar (R-Katy) and sponsored by Rep. Jodi Laubenberg (R-Parker), will vastly increase protections for women and unborn children at abortion facilities across Texas.

As passed by the House State Affairs Committee, SB 5 will:

  • Increase abortion facility safety standards to the level of ambulatory surgical centers to shut down Gosnell-like abortion providers in Texas,
  • Require the 18,000 RU-486 abortions performed each year in Texas be done according to FDA safety standards, and
  • Require physicians who perform abortions to be qualified to treat life-threatening complications after botched abortions.
  • Ban abortions on unborn children beginning at 20 weeks after fertilization, when scientific evidence clearly shows babies can feel pain.

Pro-life Gov. Rick Perry called a special session of the Texas Legislature, meeting in Austin, to consider several issues including “the regulation of abortion procedures, providers and facilities.” SB 5 is an unparalleled opportunity to protect mothers and innocent unborn babies in Texas.

Debate begins at 2 PM and may last many hours, please contact your state representative to urge them to support Senate Bill 5 to increase protections for women and unborn babies at abortion facilities in Texas.

    Trump Wins! Harris County Republicans Suffer Biggest Loss in History of the HCRP

    Last night’s presidential results were historic. For the first time in decades, Republicans will have a uniquely consolidated power base, controlling the White House, Senate, and House, as well as a majority of governorships. As a result, we should be able to appoint conservative justices, eliminate Obamacare, get rid of the Johnson Amendment (which censures the church), cut the national debt, open up the energy markets, protect religious liberties, and so much more. As my friends at AFA stated, “We were about to go over the cliff. The knockout punch was about to be delivered to the America that our Founding Fathers handed to us.

    Now It Is Your Time And Your Turn!

    Now it is your time! Do you ever see destructive things going on around you and wish you had the ability and opportunity to stop them? Like when you hear the occurrence of some tragedy, do you ever wish that you could have been in the right place at the right time, to prevent it?

    On Tuesday, November 3rd, you have an opportunity to do just that. If you live in the city of Houston, you will have the opportunity to vote NO to Proposition One, the “bathroom” or H.E.R.O. ordinance.

    Contrary to the proponents of this ordinance, it has nothing to do with equal rights (which are already protected under federal and state law), but everything to do with promotion of sexual deviance in our society, in an effort for us to accept yet one more assault on our common sense and decency.

    If you were to order pizza for dinner tonight, but the phone attendant taking your pizza order asked you if you wanted dark meat or white meat, or crispy or regular skin, what would you think? Perhaps you had dialed the wrong number?

    You might feel similarly by reading the Republican Party platform and comparing it to the words and actions of so-called “Republicans”, from Harris County to Washington D.C.

    Let’s take the City of Houston mayor’s race. We have two “Republican” candidates, Stephen Costello and Bill King.

    Support Lance Berkman Vote “No” on Proposition 1 Bathroom Ordinance

    Six time Major League Baseball All Star, Lance Berkman, recently took a bold principled stand in opposition to Houston Proposition 1 – The Bathroom Ordinance. The liberal left and LGBT community are attacking Lance Berkman for having the courage to stand on his principles. He needs our support.

    Lance Berkman is getting bashed in the sports media because he exerted his First Amendment Right of Freedom of Speech by recording a radio commercial, opposing Houston’s Proposition 1, the Bathroom Ordinance. His commercial began airing this past Thursday. The Bathroom Ordinance would allow troubled men, who claim to be women, to enter women’s bathrooms, showers and locker rooms.

    Houston City Council Is Legislating Immorality To Allow Boys Into The Girls Bathrooms and Showers

    For many years we have all heard from both the Right leaning Democrats and the Left leaning Republicans that we cannot “legislate morality”. While for now I will not address the stupidity of this I would like to make a few points for you to ponder.

    The City of Houston is trying to legislate morality, but in there their Godless hearts they will fist attempt to re-define “morality” before they legislate it so that it to include the sexually confused and the sexually perverted.

    When you go to vote during early voting and on November third, and hopefully you will vote, the first thing you will see is Proposition one, also known as the HERO or “bathroom” ordnance.
