Today, September 1, 2021, Concerned Women for America of Texas joined other pro-life organizations as we celebrated the first day of the enforcement of the Texas Heartbeat Act. This bill, offered by Sen. Bryan Hughes (R-District 1) and Rep. Shelby Slawson (R-District 59), prohibits the abortion of any pre-born child with a distinguishable heartbeat. It is estimated that this will save one hundred and fifty babies a day in Texas.
You can watch the announcement filmed today in the Atrium at the Texas Capitol. Watch my remarks starting at the 5:33 mark. Thank your senator or representative if they voted for it. And thank our Lord for the officials that heard His voice and followed His leadership, making Texas much safer for babies.
