On Saturday, January 27, 2024, thousands of pro-life Texans from around the state traveled to the Capitol in Austin to celebrate the ending of Roe v Wade and to communicate to Texas legislators and the media that Texas is and will remain a pro-life state.

Over 20 buses were organized to bring groups from cities around Texas to participate in the annual event, made possible through the efforts of over 60 host committee organizations. 

The Texas Rally for Life is an annual event commemorating the Supreme Court’s tragic Roe v. Wade decision that imposed legal abortion on Texas and the nation throughout all nine months of pregnancy. We celebrated the overturning of the terrible precedent set in 1973 at this year’s event while acknowledging we must continue the work of supporting moms and babies as we turn the tide on this injustice.

Please enjoy this recap of the event below, by speaker with a link to view their messages and a slideshow of images from the event at the bottom of the page.
