The Republican Party of Texas recently passed a resolution urging continued efforts to pass the legislative priority of abolishing abortion in Texas as passed at the 2016 Republican Party of Texas state convention. Though HB 948 was valiantly introduced by Rep. Tony Tinderholt, it was never given a committee hearing and was thus killed by the committee chair Rep. Byron Cook. Republican voters gave the legislature a mandate and they failed to fulfill it. We will keep reminding them of their duty to listen to the people and we appreciate RPT urging this issue to their attention as well. The time for justice for all the unborn children in Texas is always NOW.
WHEREAS the delegates to the 2016 Republican Party of Texas State Convention and the State Republican Executive Committee together adopted eight legislative priorities for the 85th Texas Legislature; and WHEREAS the delegates to the 2016 Republican Party of Texas State Convention directed the SREC t...
Correct me if I'm wrong but the debate is not that the constitution is the law of the land but that SCOTUS has the final say on its interpretation, right? I don't agree with that, but wanting to make sure I understand.
Chris Iverson - we were just discussing this. There are smarter guys working in Texas than me - they can probably represent their position better than I can. As I said - they filed HB948 last year to outlaw abortion and treat those who would murder babies as murderers. This was squashed by the pro-lifer - Byron Cook (think about how crimson his hands appear from heaven - wow).
Today the Executive Committee of the Republican Party of Texas (the SREC) voted overwhelmingly in favor of allowing Republican voters to voice their support for abolishing abortion in Texas.
This ballot initiative will appear on all GOP March Primary ballots in the State of Texas. It is now up to conservatives in Texas to send a message loud and clear that we will no longer allow liberal Republicans and Planned Parenthood to decide our values for us.
We are demanding the Legislature put an end to the legalized murder of the most vulnerable Texans. We are demanding the Legislators do the job we elected them to do and make righteous laws without bowing to the unlawful opinions of nine unelected lawyers in black robes. We are demanding equal justice for people of all ages.
We thank the SREC for giving all Texas Republicans the chance to make their voice heard in the upcoming primary and for furthering the cause to Abolish Abortion in Texas once and for all.
Lord, grant us Your favor and Your provision going forward!

It's like Gov Abbott says, "Should I do my job? If Yes, then send me money."
The RPT is asking, "Should we do our job? If Yes, then vote in our primary."
It's taxpayer funded polling by the RPT and some of us will be working on ballot access for a true abolitionist political party (America's Party of Texas) instead of voting in the GOP primary.

I pray that I am elected so that I can author the bill!
Joe Straus, Texas' House Speaker, elected to his position by Democrats with a handful of Republican defectors, and Byron Cook, arguably the second-most powerful member of the Texas House, have announced they will be stepping down. Rep. Cook, as chair of the State Affairs committee, was responsible for blocking the Abolition of Abortion in Texas Act (HB948).
This was the next step for Abolish Abortion in Texas. Cook, with Straus backing him, has been on the receiving end of pressure from AATX. Thanks to a combination of factors--including AATX--he's gone. This won't be the last hurdle, but it's a tremendous step forward for equal justice in Texas.
Sign our petition NOW letting the establishment politicians know that we will NOT go away until abortion is abolished in Texas!!
Thank God and all the people and true representatives that have not given up on getting rid of these two fake republican conservatives!!!

You are living in a dream world. You will never abolish abortion. You may succeed in making it less safe. I worked in a large hospital laboratory before Roe v Wade and on a large surgery schedule every day there were 8-10 D&C's scheduled. The pre-op diagnosis would be endometriosis or excessively menstrual periods. The Pathology reports would frequently read "products of conception". These were the women who had money. Poor women were admitted to the hospital after botched "back alley abortions" and would often die of sepsis.
I am not pro-abortion, but I am pro-choice. Why not put your effort into education and providing contraception which would lead to fewer abortions. Also, change your position from "Pro Birth" to your espoused position of "Pro-Life" and make sure that each child is afforded quality shelter, food, healthcare, and education.
Responsible abortion laws make sense, but the complete elimination of all abortions in ridiculous and not supported by science.

It’s sad how you politicians are taking our stAte backwards! I am Pro-life but women have a right to choose what to do with their bodies. It is not the decisions of the state but the decision between a woman and God . Quit creating so much hate for non whites and all the foolishness about restrooms. I don’t know what planet you are from exactly what some ignorant asked me last time this came about. Elections will be coming up and we the people will decide what morons we want to run the state 😡

The state does not have the right to force religious principles on people who do not believe them. There is no scientific proof that a zygote is a baby. It is a few multiplying cells that a indistinguishable from the women. Until it becomes independent, capable of separate existence, then it is an extension of the host and she may determine it existence.

If we learned anything from the NRA , bans don't work . Their words not mine . Then only people with money can fly out of the country and have it done , especially when a politicians kid gets knocked up by a black Muslim bisexual .
Yesterday the US House of Representatives passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R.36). This bill prohibits abortions “if the probable post-fertilization age of the fetus is 20 weeks or more.”. This bill only affects abortions after 20 weeks but even for those abortions, there are limitations in the bill that allow abortions after 20 weeks if the life of the mother is at risk and in the case of rape and incest.
To consider that a life created in the awful circumstance of rape or incest is somehow less valuable and should be treasured less than any other is woefully inconsistent. It is equally inconsistent that the criteria for whether an unborn child should be protected by our Republican congressional representatives is if that child can feel pain.
This is a compromised bill to regulate the murder of children in the United States. If they had enough votes to pass this regulation of murder, then why not outlaw this murderous practice instead? The status quo will continue: abortions will remain legal and lobbyists and candidates will send out fundraising letters using this "victory" to raise money for their war chests and to keep you voting for them. And the 40-year cycle continues with more than 60 million slaughtered. This is their victory at the expense of innocent human life.
The Republican-led Congress must stop making deals and compromises with those who want to slaughter innocent life in our nation and end abortion now.
Life Begins at Fertilization Bradley Pierce uses science, the law, and most of all God's Word to explain that human life begins at the moment of fertilization (i.e. conception). This talk was given at the Overflowing with Thankfulness conference hosted by FORGE Ministries last week. #AATX ... See MoreSee Less
We are excited to be at the upcoming FORGE Ministries conference on September 7th-9th in Kerrville, TX. We will have a booth there to spread the word about our current and future efforts to abolish abortion in Texas. Bradley Pierce will also be speaking at the conference with a talk entitled "Fearfully and Wonderfully Made," which will answer the question, "When does life begin?" from a scientific, legal, and biblical perspective. You can watch his talk from last year, "Abortion, the Supreme Court, and Civil Idolatry," here: youtu.be/f3KiEEU1ezM
We hope to see you there and we are grateful to FORGE for putting on this event.
