ABOUT THE TEXAS RALLY FOR LIFE: The 2018 Texas Rally for Life will commemorate the 45th anniversary of the tragic Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision in 1973, which made abortion legal throughout all nine months of pregnancy. In the wake of Roe, legal abortion in our nation has claimed the lives of more than 60 million unborn children and has hurt countless women and men. Based on previous attendance the rain or shine event anticipates more than 5,000 people to participate in this year’s rally.
