“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord .” (II Timothy 1:7 & 8a)
Now is the time for every person who fears God and wants our country to have laws that respect His principles to stand up, travel to Austin and let your presence and your voice be counted.
Monday, July 1, the Omnibus Pro-life bill (HB 2) was presented on the floor of the Texas House of Representatives. It was read for the first reading and then assigned to committee. It was heard in the State Affairs Committee on Tuesday, July 2. After many hours of testimony, the bill was passed out of the committee on an 8-3 party line vote. Now the bill will go to the full House for a vote. That could happen as early as Tuesday or Wednesday of next week.
A companion bill, SB 1, has been introduced in the Senate, but no action has been taken as yet.
WE NEED YOU!
