IMG_9964On Thursday, August 4, 2016, the Texas Department of State Health Services held a public hearing on their proposed rule changes to 25 Texas Administrative Code Chapter 1, Subchapter K §§1.132 – 1.137 concerning the method of disposal for abortion victims. Gov. Greg Abbot and the Department of State Health Services issued new rules on July 1 that would require any abortion provider to cremate or bury the bodies of unborn babies. In an outrage, pro-abortionists demanded a public hearing to oppose the implementation of the rules. Currently, the law allows for abortion victim remains to be disposed of like regular medical waste through sewers and landfills. Concerned Women for America (CWA) leaders had a strong representation at the hearing. Paula Moore, CWA of Texas Pro-Life Director, Cindy Asmussen, CWA of Texas Legislative Director, and Amanda Sanders, Young Women for America (YWA) Coordinator, testified at the hearing on behalf of the CWA of Texas, YWA and CWA Legislative Action Committee in support of the rule change. The room was filled with a strong presence of both pro-abortionists and pro-life advocates. Pro-lifers were well put-together and conducted themselves in a respectful, mature manner while pro-abortionists were sloppy and disrespectful during all pro-life remarks. The true colors of each side were shown. CWA and YWA of Texas leaders will be watching the progression of these rule changes and continue to speak up for the dignity of human life.
