Abortion Activists Threaten to Flash Their Lady Parts at Texas Capitol

The Texas state Senate is preparing its second attempt to pass the bill to ban late-term abortions. As the chamber prepares to debate and vote on the bill for the first time following the interruption of a vote by a pro-abortion mob, pro-life advocates on the ground report the antics from abortion proponents will continue.

The reports come from Abby Johnson, the former Planned Parenthood abortion business director in Texas who became pro-life:





Kristan Hawkins, the director of Students for Life of America, a pro-life group that has dozens of students on the ground in Austin supporting pro-life efforts, told LifeNews today she is also concerned about pro-abortion activists today.

In an email to LifeNews, Hawkins writes:

Today, our team in Austin needs your prayers. Early this morning, I received the following email from our team on the ground in Austin, and I wanted to share it with you to see what we are up against.

Make no mistake about it: I believe what is happening right now in Austin is spiritual warfare. Our students and staff have endured it all this week: discrimination by the YMCA, bus breakdowns, a hit-and-run on one of our rental vehicles, threats from pro-abortion supporters at the capitol, technology failures, and illness.

And despite the fact that our team has only been getting about 3 hours of sleep a night and is exhausted from being outside in the 100 degree heat for 12+ hours a day, today is the most important day of our week as the pro-life omnibus bill has passed the House and is going to the Senate for a final vote. Because they are so desperate, Planned Parenthood, NARAL, and other pro-abortion forces are preparing for a war at the Texas state capitol today.

Our supporters have been simply amazing this week. The outpouring for support, prayers, and help in Austin can never be repaid. We’ve had some of our friends come by and donate cots for our team to sleep on and others come to the capitol to feed us. And in Austin, our team has been prayed over by some of the authors of this pro-life bill, we’ve met with the Lt. Governor of Texas and former Senator Rick Santorum, and have had pro-lifers drive our team places when our bus broke down and give us keys to their hotel rooms to help some of us shower.



But right now, I need you to pray:

• Pray for the safety of our team and of our students.

• Pray for the hurt people on the other side who are preparing to do all they can to stop this bill, which will save babies’ lives and women from the hurt of abortion, from passing.

• And pray that we can get out the story of what is happening in Austin out to the nation. Sadly, our team has seen this type of behavior before but not when national cameras have been present. Now is our time to not only pass life-saving legislation that could have a domino effect across the nation but to show the world just what those advocating for abortion really are about.
