On Saturday, I attended the Dallas March For Life where we marched to advocate the end of abortion in Texas and the United States. We walked through the streets of downtown Dallas and then held a rally at the very courthouse where Roe Vs. Wade began. Rally speakers included Bishop Kevin Farrell, Laura Anderson from Brave love (a movement to increase adoption), and April Keese from African Americans for Life.
This year marks the 42nd anniversary of the decision that made abortion legal. Since being made legal, roughly 56 million (yes, million) babies have been killed through abortion.
Although it was a somber experience, we had much to celebrate. Because of the recent passing and enforcement of HB2, the number of Texas abortion clinics has gone from what was once 44, to only 8. This was a huge victory for Pro-Life advocates in Texas and has made it possible to end abortion during our generation.
The Declaration of Independence tells us that God has given us the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Please choose to support adoption, crisis pregnancy centers, and pro-life organizations. Choose to keep fighting to protect the most innocent...the ones who have not had a chance to utter their first cry or take their first breath. Choose life.
