We wish you and your family a blessed and peaceful Christmas. FaxNotes will resume after January 1. In the meantime, we will plan for the coming year as we continue to hope and pray for the day when every innocent human life, from conception until natural death, is respected and protected under the law in America.
The Texas Legislature will convene in January. Pro-life legislation is already being introduced. For the first time ever, we have an opportunity to pass some bills that will restrict or regulate the practice of abortion. While we can't at this time protect all the little ones who are at risk for abortion because of various Supreme Court decisions, laws can be written that will help protect some of them. Since 1973, most pro-life legislation in Texas has languished in hostile committees controlled by pro-abortion legislators. Republicans now have majorities in both houses of the Legislature. Most of them ran as "pro-life" candidates -- some are solid and some justify abortion for some babies some of the time. Most of them however, are expected to at least support legislation restricting abortion.
David Dewhurst, the new Lt. Governor, campaigned as a pro-life candidate with only a life of the mother exception. He is expected to assign pro-life bills to committees that will be fair. Governor Rick Perry campaigned as a pro-life candidate and although he justifies abortion for babies conceived through rape or incest, he is expected to sign legislation that will restrict or regulate the practice of abortion in Texas.
Please let us hear from you. It will take all of us, pulling together, to make this a successful Legislative session for the pro-life cause in Texas.
