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!!
Joan Konsavageit is obvious to any thinking person that every individual/official/group that supports abortion in any manner is without question grossly evil -

Randy JanssenShould a 12 year old victim of rape and incest be forced to carry her fathers offspring to term? Is it murder to destroy human eggs that were fertilized in a petre dish? Is an egg a chicken?
Dorothy WellsThank God and all the people and true representatives that have not given up on getting rid of these two fake republican conservatives!!!

Boyd RuffnerYou 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.
Randy JanssenResponsible abortion laws make sense, but the complete elimination of all abortions in ridiculous and not supported by science.

Sonia Cortez Del BosqueIt’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 😡
Randy JanssenThe 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.

Joe Garzaalways a corrupt democrate and traitor republicans willing to go against what is right ,we are tired of it find those corrupt republicans and can them,and stop voting these democrates into office
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.
Abolish Abortion TX is honored to participate in the Clear Lake Tea Party (Official) Legislative Recap on August 24th. We encourage all of our friends to attend and hear from the Texas Freedom Caucus members. Come show your support for the Abolition of Abortion in Texas Act (HB948), our friends at the CLTP, and members of the Freedom Caucus that supported HB948.
Thank you, State Representative Tony Tinderholt for keeping up the fight to abolish abortion in Texas. This legislation must continue to be introduced and championed until abortion is ended in our State. Governor Abbott should add the abolition of abortion to the Special Session call and listen to the delegates of his own party who overwhelmingly voted in favor of such a measure.
Earlier during special session, I delivered a letter and more than 1,000 signatures to Governor Abbott requesting he add legislation abolishing abortion to the special session call. While I'm proud to co-author all of the pro-life legislation currently on the call, we can do even more! The time to end abortion is now! #onthejob
Andy HollowayTexas will never be allowed to protect the unborn until we are free from the dictates of the federal courts. Please support a referendum on Texas independence so that we can make a real difference.
State Representative Tony Tinderholt and leaders with Abolish Abortion in Texas recently went on The Liberty Line radio discussing the events of the regular legislative session this year and the battle to end abortion in Texas. Take a listen and be inspired to get involved yourself: abolishabortiontx.com/enlist/

So Help You God Last week, attorney Bradley Pierce spoke at the invitation of the Republican Party of Texas to Republican legislators and their staffs about the party's legislative priority to abolish abortion. Watch this video for a quick take down of the common objections to supporting a bill abolishing abortion and a powerful urge to stand up against this evil in Texas. We are thankful for the opportunity given by the Republican Party of Texas and urge all Republican legislators to listen to the delegates of their party and support such legislation. So help them God. #AATX ... See MoreSee Less
Joe GoodsonFantastic truth-telling in love to the powers that be, brother!! May God grant more such opportunities all over this state and nation, and may He see to the abolition of the atrocity that is abortion in our land!!!
Bradley PierceMy words alone are powerless to change hearts, but God can.
“The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD, Like the rivers of water; He turns it wherever He wishes. Every way of a man is right in his own eyes, But the LORD weighs the hearts. To do righteousness and justice Is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice.”
Proverbs 21:1-3 NKJV
