On Jan. 28, at the Texas Capitol in Austin, the Texas Rally for Life 2023, organized by the Texas Alliance for Life, again expects a large contingent. Abortion Survivor Claire Culwell is one of the scheduled speakers.
According to Joe Pojman, executive director of Texas Alliance for Life (TAL), the Texas Rally for Life has been an annual event for more than three decades. As for past rallies, thousands of people from across the state are again expected to attend.
“Since Roe has fallen, Texas’ pre-Roe laws and the Texas Human Life Protection Act completely protect unborn babies from abortion. We wish to demonstrate to our elected officials and to the media in our state that Texas remains pro-life,” Pojman told the Register. He listed three messages the TAL and the march wish to convey: “The unborn child is a baby worthy of protection. Abortion hurts, not helps, women and families. Texas provides vast resources for women with unplanned and planned pregnancies.”
Pojman has seen great positive reaction to the upcoming rally, with 35 organizations already part of the host committee and planned buses coming from more than a dozen cities and counting. He pointed out that the rally will be streamed on the alliance’s Facebook and Youtube accounts, and several radio stations throughout Texas are expected to broadcast the event. Last year, both Protestant and Catholic stations broadcast the rally, including several that carry EWTN programming.
