This is a historic time for the pro-life movement and much is at stake in Texas.
Earlier this year, the abortion industry sued to block part of a new law that mandates dignified burial or cremation for victims of abortion, calling the rule an “insult to Texas women.”
That lawsuit will be heard in federal court in downtown Austin on Monday.
Texas Alliance for Life invites YOU to join leaders of 40 Days for Life in Austin on Monday, July 16, for a prayer vigil and rally to draw attention to the horrors of abortion and to call for humane disposition of abortion victims’ bodies. Those will be followed by a Pro-Life Primer at the Capitol building headed by Texas Alliance for Life to learn what is ahead given President Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
While current Supreme Court precedent prevents Texas from banning most abortions, Governor Abbott and the Legislature has sought to prevent the abortion industry’s treating the precious remains of the victims of abortion as medical waste, including grinding and flushing into a sewer system or burial in a landfill after incineration. That is part of SB 8 passed in 2017, and it is under attack and will be considered in a five-day trial beginning on Monday.
Stand with pro-life Texans from across the state to pray and hear from clergy, women who have testified, and other Texas pro-life leaders.
