LIFE Initiative Letter to Gov. Abbott

The Texas Conservative Coalition (TCC) applauds your announcement of the new statewide “LIFE Initiative,” a comprehensive set of policy proposals that, when implemented, will provide greater protection for unborn children and prevent the sale of fetal body parts.  Although upholding the sanctity of life is always a vitally important governmental objective, the urgency with which the goal must be pursued has been made apparent by a series of recent undercover videos released by the Center for Medical Progress.  The video footage depicts employees of Planned Parenthood, a well-known provider of abortion services and contraceptives, failing to obtain patient consent before performing abortions, negotiating compensation for the sale of baby body parts, and cutting apart and shipping fully-intact late-term aborted fetuses. Some of the shocking and crass conversations on camera take place at a Houston facility.
