Texas Governor Greg Abbott is taking a huge step to protect the unborn.
On June 8, he signed a law that prohibits the intentional dismemberment of an unborn child during an abortion.
The law says, “a person may not intentionally perform a dismemberment abortion” unless it’s necessary in a medical emergency.
Texas Right to Life applauded the law, calling it a “a monumental step in protecting the most vulnerable among us and advancing Pro-Life legislation in our state and across the country.”…. read more
Oklahoma’s House of Representatives has passed a resolution labeling abortion murder and calling upon state officials to prevent abortions from happening.
Known as House Resolution 1004, the measure was passed on Monday and copies of which will be sent to President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.

As 50 years of legal abortion in their state was marked, on May 4, the National Day of Prayer, a group of Christians gathered with solemn prayer that the practice will soon come to an end…. read more
WASHINGTON — Vice President Pence cast a tie-breaking Senate vote Thursday to pass legislation that will allow states to withhold federal funds from Planned Parenthood and other health care providers that perform abortions.
The measure, which now goes to President Trump for his signature, dismisses an Obama-era rule banning states from denying federal funds to such organizations.

Planned Parenthood boss Cecile Richards is tweeting again … and further showing Planned Parenthood’s disconnect with humanity.
Richards took to social media to proclaim, “Planned Parenthood is proud to provide abortion – a necessary service that’s as vital to our mission as birth control or cancer screenings.”
With 40 Days for Life vigils at more than 130 Planned Parenthood locations right now, we know that Planned Parenthood is “proud” of abortion.
