Praise! Nine New ‘Sanctuary Cities for the Unborn’
Amid a tumultuous and saddening election cycle, pro-life victories like these are encouraging. Do it again, Lord!
From LifeSiteNews. A total of nine municipalities in the states of Texas and Nebraska have passed measures outlawing abortion within their jurisdictions, making them “Sanctuary Cities for the Unborn.”
During the November 8 elections, citizens in five Nebraska villages and four Texas cities voted on a local ballot for abortion restrictions in their cities, according to a report by Live Action.
The four cities in Texas that voted for the local pro-life legislation are Athens (population: 12,857, Henderson County); Abilene (population: 124,407, Taylor and Jones Counties); San Angelo (population: 101,004, Tom Green County); and Plainview (population 22,194, Hale County). …
The Athens Ordinance also explicitly condemned the legacy of Curtis Wayne Boyd, an abortionist who killed over 10,000 unborn children through illegal abortions in the late 1960s, before Roe v. Wade, and opened the first “legal” abortion facility in Texas after the 1973 ruling. …
Abortion at any stage of human development after conception was criminalized in Texas after a trigger law took effect on August 25, 2022.
The six Nebraska villages that voted for the local pro-life legislation are Arnold (population: 592, Custer County); Paxton (population: 516, Keith Country); Brady (population: 383, Lincoln County); Hershey (population: 649, Lincoln County); and Wallace (population: 318, Lincoln County).
The ordinances passed in these cities add further restrictions on abortion by outlawing the practice entirely within their jurisdiction. …
These important pro-life successes followed another significant victory when Hobbs, New Mexico (population 41,604, Lea County) passed a “sanctuary city for the unborn” ordinance, making it the first city in the state to effectively ban all abortions.
