Texas is considering legislation that would hold abortion facilities to the safety standards of other surgical facilities, require abortionists to have admitting privileges at local hospitals, and ban late-term abortions. The bill is a response to the horrific testimony of ex-employees of abortionist Douglas Karpen, also known as the “Texas Gosnell.”

Pro-abortion groups that claim to represent women’s interests are pulling out all the stops to defeat this legislation. Since the state legislature has a pro-life majority, opponents are relying on underhanded tactics. The last time this legislation was considered (just last week), they delayed a vote past a critical deadline by literally shouting down the proceedings.
The bill will be introduced again this afternoon. Abortion advocates are descending upon Austin, and have even resorted to buying protesters on Craigslist.
But pro-life advocates are not backing down. We will match their crowds– but our side will be respectful. We will show the world what it means to be pro-life and pro-woman.
If you can be in Austin in person, wear blue (pro-aborts are wearing orange), and be sure to register your support for the bill at the kiosks outside the committee room.
If you can’t make it to Austin, support the brave pro-life women and men who are facing the lawless Texas mob by participating in the #Stand4Life campaign on twitter. Or if you’re more of a facebook person, change your cover photo.
