Rally for life at the Texas State Capitol this Saturday


Join the thousands of Texans expected
at the State Capitol in Austin on Saturday, January 28,
for the 2012 Texas Rally for Life!

RSVP today on the official Facebook Rally event page.

On Saturday, January 28, thousands of Texans will gather at 15th and Colorado Streets in Austin and march to the state Capitol to show the media and our elected officials that Texas is PRO-LIFE!

The 2012 Texas Rally for Life commemorates the 39th anniversary of the tragic Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision in 1973, which made abortion legal throughout all nine months of pregnancy. In the wake of Roe, legal abortion in our nation has claimed the lives of more than 53 million unborn children and has hurt countless women and men.

The Rally will feature pro-life Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, who is defending our state’s Sonogram Law in federal court and will administer the Choose Life license plate fund to promote adoption. Also speaking will be Carol Everett of The Heidi Group, a former director of abortion facilities who is now a pro-life leader; Most Rev. Joe Vásquez, Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Austin; Rev. Dr. David Smith of the Austin Baptist Association; emcee Elizabeth McClung, founder of Austin Coalition for Life; Kimberly and Michael Speirs of the John Paul II Life Center & Vitae Clinic; and Joe Pojman, Ph.D., executive director of Texas Alliance for Life. Also attending will be special guests U.S. Senator John Cornyn and Lt. Governor David Dewhurst.

Stand up for the more than 77,000 unborn babies who will lose their lives in Texas this year, unless we act now.

Plan now to attend! Organize a bus or car pool of people from your church or local pro-life organization to come with you. See which groups are coming from your area. Individual signs will be provided, but bring a banner from your church or pro-life organization.
