Concerned Women for America of Texas applauds state Rep. Jeff Leach (R-Plano) for filing HB 16 protecting infants born-alive after an attempted abortion. The bill says: “A physician who performed or attempted the abortion must exercise the same degree of professional skill, care, and diligence to preserve the life and health of the child as a reasonably diligent and conscientious physician would render to any other child born alive at the same gestational age.” Sen. Lois Kolkhorst (R-Benham) is set to file the companion bill, SB 23, in the Senate.
Act: Make your voice heard! Ask your Texas representative to co-author this bill. You can find your Representative here. Be sure to let him/her know that you are a member of Concerned Women for America of Texas.
Pray: Ask God to open the eyes and ears of legislators to the reality of infanticide taking place in Texas and to give them the courage to oppose it.
Help make Texas safe for babies.
