" Dear Governor Perry,
Thank you for the strong stands you take for life and for liberty. The undersigned members of the House share your commitment to protect the sanctity of human life. Despite an overwhelming pro-life majority in the House, not a single pro-life bill filed during this 83rd session reached the House floor. Since pro-life values are fundamental to us, and since the majority of Texans share these convictions, we are not willing to give up the fight. In the struggle to defend life, we cannot take a day off – much less a legislative session.
In light of the increasing likelihood of a Special Session, we ask that you exercise your constitutional power and add pro-life bills to the call.
More specifically, we ask that you add the following matters to the call:
1.Protection of pain-capable unborn children from abortion at 20 weeks gestation;
2.Protection of women and unborn children by requiring abortion facilities to meet the same health and safety standards as ambulatory surgical centers; and
3.Protection of women and unborn children by requiring abortion doctors to secure and maintain privileges at an emergency room within thirty miles of the facility where they commit abortions.
4. Legislation ensuring that any Health Insurance Exchange (whether state or federal) set up in Texas does not include coverage for abortion.
On these matters of life, the will of the people has been frustrated thus far in the Regular Session. By adding these fundamentally important issues to the special session agenda, you can enable your pro-life House Members to defend innocent human life.
Thank you for your thoughtful consideration of our request, and thank you for your service to Texas.

A public thank you to Texas's Governor Rick Perry and the Texas House of Representatives' Prolife Delegation for having the courage of their convictions. GOD bless you in a might way!
Also, @TimTebow on twitter [NFL QB Tim Tebow] is a powerful Christian and PROLIFE witness on the field and on twitter. A lot of Christians are praying for him, that GOD will lead him to where HE wants him to be, and empower him to be all GOD intended. Here's an encouraging bit of news :
Quoting from http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1651866-tim-tebow-news-tony-dungy-offers-words-of-encouragement-to-free-agent-qb w/ quote: "On Dungy's blog at All Pro Dad, he contended that a higher power essentially has the proper path slated for Tebow and that it will reveal itself eventually. Dungy also discussed how Tebow lifts the spirits of his teammates and is a flat-out winner who raises the morale in the locker room.
Dungy's advice was essentially for Tebow to stay patient, which has to be difficult at this point."
Quoting from http://www.lifenews.com/2013/06/02/lifenews-welcomes-four-top-pro-life-bloggers-including-bobby-schindler/ : "LifeNews features a slate of top pro-life bloggers and activists including Ryan Bomberger, Kristan Hawkins of Students for Life, David Prentice, Andrew Bair, Rebecca Taylor, and leaders from groups like National Right to Life, Americans United for Life and the Susan B. Anthony List." and "One of the top people communicating the pro-life message in today’s pop culture world is Scott Klusendorf. Hot on his trail is Josh Brahm, one of the best and brightest young minds of the pro-life movement and someone dedicated to helping pro-life advocates make their message more effective in changing hearts and minds. Klusendorf himself has called Brahm “an excellent communicator, a rising star, and one of the most talented young pro-life apologists I know.”
Braham is “very excited to be an official blogger for LifeNews.com.”
