The Texas Senate committee on Health & Human Services will hear testimony regarding the Pro-Life bill in the Legislature. Citizens may begin signing up to testify at 9:00 AM on Monday at room E1.036 in the Capitol Extension. Testimony will be limited to 2 minutes each. Written testimony is also allowed and must be submitted with 20 copies and stating the person's name. Be prepared for a long day as the abortion supporters will do their best to control the process. And don't forget to wear your Baby Blue!
Also, come join other Texas Pro-Lifers and Gov. Mike Huckabee in a rally on the Capitol grounds Monday night at 7:00 PM. We must show that the liberal mob has not silenced us as the media bears down on Texas conservatives.
If you cannot make it to Austin, Sen. Dan Patrick has setup an online petition that you can sign at www.ProtectLifeTexas.com
Supporters are asked to wear blue and to bring lots of water, as it is summer in Texas.
