As a national pro-life leader, I support all legislation that reduces abortion and/or can stop it altogether. I think our movement needs to be firing on all legislative cylinders. That is why I support HB 948 – a bill that would outlaw abortion in the state of Texas. Having said that, like Rep. Tony Tinderholt, I do not only support abortion bans, but all efforts to stop the killing, including more gradual measures as well.

Lobbying requires coalition building which can take years of persistence, tirelessly and patiently working with legislators and groups who may not initially agree with you. We have done this successfully in Ohio when we introduced the first state-wide abortion ban in 2006, and the Heartbeat Bill in 2011 which was passed by the Ohio General Assembly in 2016.
I pray that most legislators will be willing to defy Roe v. Wade and put HB 948 into law in Texas.
I also pray that those who are on the ground working to pass HB 948 will respect legislators and groups who regularly lobby for pro-life legislation in Austin even if they do not initially support HB 948.
What is happening in Texas with Rep. Tinderholt receiving death threats is despicable but predicable. These kind of threats have become the new normal from those who support abortion. He needs our prayers and support.
