The 87th legislative session for Texas is over. The Abolition of Abortion in Texas Act (HB 3326), which you and others have supported with your phone calls, letters, and personal visits to the Capitol, is dead.
Representative Stephanie Klick has killed the only bill which would abolish abortion in Texas!
Klick let HB 3326 die in her committee, virtually ensuring that over 100,000 thousand more preborn children will die due to abortion in the state of Texas over the next two years.
It’s hard to imagine how these legislators can continue to claim to be against abortion when they are so opposed to its abolition.
Unfortunately, I’m not actually surprised. This isn’t the first time they’ve done this.
This same thing happens year after year.
Legislators get themselves elected based on the promise that they are going to work to end abortion. They go out of their way to tell us how “pro-life” they are. And then when it comes time to act on behalf of the preborn, they ignore or even openly oppose bills which would end it.
The worst example of this is Governor Greg Abbott, who made a promise to a 16 year old boy who was dying of cancer that he would work to completely outlaw abortion in Texas.
That young man was Jeremiah Thomas. He passed away in 2018, and sadly, Governor Abbott has yet to keep his promise.
Of course, Governor Abbott is not the only politician who sold out the preborn this year.
Chair Stephanie Klick and Chair Chris Paddie had the opportunity to advance bills which treated abortion as murder and declared Roe unconstitutional in each of their committees, but they instead let the bills die without even giving them a hearing!
These people are not pro-abortion Democrats. Both of them are members of the Republican Establishment who ran on a pro-life platform!
As I said above, however, their unwillingness to help put an end to abortion in Texas is sad but not suprising.
The truly shocking thing this year is that for the third year in a row, the abolition of abortion has been a legislative priority on the Republican Party of Texas’ platform!
So not only did these GOP leaders sell out the preborn, but they also clearly ignored the will of the grassroots voters in their own party.
It has become clear that the only way we are going to get these politicians to actually end the slaughter of the preborn is to hold them accountable for their actions during the election season!
In fact, holding our elected officials accountable is a responsibility that we have as Christians. Under God, we the people are the highest authority in the United States and in Texas, and it is up to us to require that our civic leaders promote justice and punish evil. We are responsible to God for our actions.
While there is plenty of blame to go around, our hope is to focus our time and resources on the people who are most responsible for keeping abortion legal in Texas. Our goal is to effectively use our time and energy to create real change, not just bash politicians year after year and see no real results. We want your input!
Which politicians should we focus on to hold them accountable for killing the bills seeking to end abortion?
Having input from grassroots conservatives like you is absolutely essential in helping us make sure we concentrate our resources in the right places!
Now, more than ever, it is crucial that we turn up the pressure on politicians. We cannot afford to keep letting them pretend to be for abolition during election season, but then kill bills in the legislative session that would actually save the lives of thousands of babies in Texas.
We cannot allow for their duplicity to go unnoticed by their voters!
