Know the Texas Republican “pro-lifers” who ain’t August 11, 2015Posted by Tantumblogo in abdication of duty, Abortion, contraception, Dallas Diocese, error, foolishness, General Catholic, sadness, scandals, secularism, self-serving, sexual depravity, Society.
Texas Right to Life – which organization I strongly support – has compiled a helpful list of Texas state legislators (the lower house) who claim to be pro-life Republicans but who proposed dangerous legislation or worked against pro-life reforms. The graphic below lists them in detail:
Remember these names when it comes time to vote again in 2016. Note that some of these people may have some pro-life votes to their names – Texas has possibly the most pro-life legislature in the nation at present – but who turned out to be some of the weakest among the huge Republican majority who claim to be pro-life.
Also note (and the importance of this cannot be overstated) that the very powerful (and some might say, corrupt) House Speaker Joe Straus had a perfect 0% rating when it came to pro-life legislation. That is par for the course for Straus, who has done more than anyone else to keep the overwhelming pro-life majority in the legislature from enacting even more meaningful laws against abortion and the entire culture of death. Please support challenges to his leadership from pro-life sources.
You can also view a list of those who excelled in their pro-life work in the recently concluded legislative session here.
The entire list is here. Both my representative and senator compiled 100% ratings but neither merited mention on the pro-life heroes list.
May this soon change. And may the legislature find the wherewithal to defend perfectly innocent unborn lives.
