Today in Houston at the Marriott Marquis hotel the Republican Party of Texas Legislative Priorities & Platform committees begin their work of crafting the official positions of the Republican party in Texas for the next 2 years.
We thank these committeemen and committeewomen for their hard work for our values in Texas and will be praying for their efforts.
A legislative priority has been introduced to urge the legislature in the 2021 session to abolish abortion without compromise in Texas:
BE IT RESOLVED, that we urge the Texas legislature to abolish abortion through enacting legislation which would immediately secure the rights to life and the equal protection of the laws to all preborn children and would ignore and refuse to enforce any and all federal statutes, regulations, orders, and court rulings which would deny these rights.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that this resolution calling for immediate abolition be adopted as a Legislative Priority by the Republican Party of Texas, and that any language offered which would legitimize the unconstitutional Roe v. Wade line of opinions or would deny equal protection be rejected
We encourage the committee to vote in favor of this RESOLUTION and look forward to the entire convention body having the opportunity to vote on it later this week.
Stay tuned for video updates on this legislative priority and other abolition efforts as the convention unfolds by texting RPT2020 to 555-888 for Abolition Action Alerts.
