Dear Friends in San Antonio who respect the sanctity of life,
Did you know that yesterday, January 22nd, the day commemorating the 42nd anniversary of the infamous Roe v. Wade high court decision, the U.S. Congress voted to permanently ban all federal funds for abortion? This decision is setting up a collision course with the present pro-abortion administration on Obama Care. According to U.S. Congressman Chris Smith (N.J.) yesterday, the most stalwart, committed pro-life members of Congress are coming back to get the job done with a federal fetal pain/20 week abortion ban that we Texans can proudly proclaim we led the country in passing when the HB2 omnibus bill was signed into state law in 2013.
To memorialize the anniversary of Roe V. Wade, as president of Texas Leadership Coalition, I gave a speech at a press conference on January 15th in front of the Planned Parenthood mega-abortion center under construction on 2140 Babcock to remind the public that abortion is not medical care and pregnancy is not a disease.

Last call – Please join us and show your pro-life colors at the pro-life rallies on Saturday in Austin and Milam Park in San Antonio on Sunday. Numbers count. WEAR BLUE! There will be protestors holding a pro-Roe rally on the north steps of the Capitol from 1:30-3:30. They will be wearing orange.
Join us in fighting the Planned Parenthood abortion behemoth racing forward to complete their abortion mega-center in San Antonio which will make our city the abortion capital of South Texas!
Who will stop this? If not us, who will?
The Stop Planned Parenthood San Antonio Coalition is comprised of local pro-life organizations which include the Allied Women’s Center, San Antonio Coalition for Life, the San Antonio Right to Life, Life Choices and other crisis pregnancy centers, Texas Leadership Coalition, San Antonio Family Association, St. Joan of Arc Brigade, Love of Truth Ministries, and many other excellent pro-life organizations in San Antonio who are uniting to combat the expansion of abortion in our city. Please help us raise our voices against the abortion providers in our city.
