BREAKING: 20-Week Abortion Ban, Heightened Facility Standards Pass Texas Senate
HB2 Goes to Gov. Rick Perry for Signature
Statement from Live Action President Lila Rose:
Texas took an important step today toward true equal protection of unalienable rights. Pain-capable babies saved from dismemberment and women’s health safeguarded with practical surgical standards – this is what passed in Austin over Planned Parenthood’s and NARAL’s supporters angry objections. Texas is moving closer to an ethos that enshrines the inherent dignity of every human being, and their fundamental human right to life. May the rest of the nation follow on that path, and may we reach the destination soon.
Live Action is a youth-led movement dedicated to building a culture of life and ending the human rights abuse of abortion. The group uses new media to educate the public about the humanity of the unborn and investigative journalism to expose threats against the vulnerable and defenseless.
