CPLC Call to Action

January 6, 2011

On January 11, 2011, the 82nd Session of the Texas State Legislature will convene.  On that day, the Texas House will elect its Speaker.  That person controls legislative activity in the House by selecting committee chairs and setting the calendar for bill consideration.  Thus, the person who holds the office of Speaker, and his/her views and priorities, can dictate what bills become laws.  During the coming session, there are several bills which will affect the rights of the unborn and the protections afforded their mothers, including the access-to-songram bill which will require abortionists to review a mother’s sonogram with her and permit her to hear her baby’s heartbeat.

Please call your representative this week and ask that he or she support a Speaker candidate who will support and prioritize pro-life legislation in the upcoming legislative session.
