Take a Stand for Life
Tens of thousands of "Pro Baby Killers" will descend on the Capitol in Austin on Monday in an attempt to thwart the will of virtuous Texans and their elected servants. Let's not let that happen again. Bring signs and wear blue in support and respect for LIFE.
The senate hearing time has not yet been set. We will update you when it is published. The Capitol will be buzzing with tens of thousands of people all day long. So any amount of time you can spend there will be helpful.

We the People should endeavor to be a virtuous people. Virtue implies the possession or manifestation of moral excellence. This moral excellence governs our values concerning the sanctity of life from conception to end. Honesty, trustworthiness, integrity, charity, sacrifice, industriousness, courage and reverence for God and country are all founding and God given qualities that comprise our virtue. As a People we endeavor to elect and appoint those officials that exemplify these virtues.
" Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." -- John Adams October 11, 1798
“ I thank God that I have lived to see my country independent and free. She may long enjoy her independence and freedom if she will. It depends on her virtue.” – Samuel Adams
