Students for Life Action Calls on Texas Senators to Pass Numerous Pro-Life Bills

Reporting on Behalf of Students for Life Action

“I’m here because it’s time we stop pushing for abortion and push for solutions to the human rights and women’s rights issues of our day.” said SFLAction’s Sarah Zarr. “What if we lead with solutions? This is what the Pro-Life Generation WANTS.” 

 

AUSTIN, TX & WASHINGTON, DC (03-15-2021)– Students for Life Action/Students for Life of America leaders will testify in support of numerous pro-life bills coming before the Senate Committee on State Affairs today. SFLA leaders and students will deliver testimony on: SB 1647, The Texas Abolition Strategy; SB 9, The Human Life Protection Act; SB 394, Chemical Abortion Regulation; SB 650, to stop funding of abortion services; and SB 802, the Every Mother Matters Act.

“I am often told that because Texas is pro-life, my job must be easier here,” said Sarah Zarr, Texas and Southern Regional Manager for Students for Life of America and Students for Life Action. “But there’s much more to be done to protect human lives in our state — and the large number of pro-life bills being considered in Texas this legislative session is a reason for optimism.”

Polling of registered Millennial and Gen Z voters commissioned by Students for Life and published by our Institute for Pro-Life Advancement found nuanced views toward abortion and broad support for pro-life measures. Almost 7 in 10 Millennials and Gen Z want to vote on abortion-related policy. Less than 2 in 10 want unlimited abortion through all 9 months, for any reason at all and sometimes with taxpayer funding, which Roe allows. More than 7 out of 10 support limits on abortion. Polling also found young voters antagonistic toward taxpayer funding of abortion, with 48% opposed, compared to only 36% in support. Almost HALF supported banning abortion after a heartbeat detected, compared to only 38% opposed, and, by a margin of 55% to 25%, Millennials and Gen Z supported requiring in-person purchase of deadly Chemical Abortion Pills to prevent abusers from anonymously buying them online to slip to women without their consent.

“Clearly, the Future Is Anti-Abortion — and Texas is heeding the call.” Zarr stated.
