Friday, September 20, 2013, 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Texas Alliance for Life will be hosting a #Stand4Life Legislative Update seminar on September 20 at the Texas Capitol.
The #Stand4Life Legislative Update day will be an opportunity for pro-lifers to come learn more about the future and impact of HB 2, share stories about the exciting events that lead to the passing of HB 2, and meet pro-lifers from across the state.
This exceptional event features some of the key legislative leaders who made HB 2 a reality, including Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, Sen. Glenn Hegar (HB 2 sponsor), and Rep. Jodie Laubenberg (HB 2 author) as well as many key grassroots leaders who have worked effectively both in the Capitol and in their own communities!
Five Texas abortion facilities have been shuttered in the last 11 months. A big part of the reason is bills passed in 2011, including SB 7 (defunded Planned Parenthood) and the Sonogram bill (raisied the standards for informed consent), AND because of local grassroots campaigns.
In July record numbers of pro-life citizens traveled to the Capitol to #Stand4Life to support HB 2 that raises the safety standards abortion facilities to the level of other medical facilities and requires FDA protocol for RU-486 abortions. The newly passed HB 2 may result in closing even more abortion facilities because of the reluctance of abortion providers to abide by the new levels of safety.
Help shut down the remaining 42 abortion facilities in our state. Come to the Capitol for the #Stand4Life Legislative Update
on Friday, September 20.
