I'll be there! Please come out and join this fantastic organization and meet some truly inspirational and the most dedicated pro-life warriors in this entire state. Rafael Cruz is the keynote speaker. I've never heard him in person, but I think he's an outstanding speaker. I'm eager to hear what he has to say to us.
Now more than ever, Texas has problems. The "pro-life Republicans" keep letting us down and our pro-life status is slipping away, along with untold lives. This has to end. There is no excuse for it. We need as many people on board with the true pro-life mission in Texas as possible. Come hear the plans, meet your like-minded comrades, and get energized for the battles ahead. Lives depend on it!
This event is the BIG ONE they have in the state and I've been trying to get down there for it for years. I'm excited to say that I'll also be at the one here in Dallas in October, which I'll post more about then as well.
For more information, go here.*
I hope to see you there!
Thanks for reading!
*Do not go to texasrighttolife.org as that redirects you to Texas Alliance for Life ("TAL") and its annual dinner. (Isn't that funny? You're trying to go to the real pro-life org's site and your efforts are co-opted and misdirected to the wrong place. It's exactly what they do in the legislature. It's really incredible, actually; a metaphor for all they are and do.) Texas Right to Life and TAL are not the same organization. I noticed this URL thing probably a year or more ago, but said nothing. Sometimes it's best not to draw attention to such things and individuals. But I now think people need to be warned. I've always tried to bring clarity and truth to these situations, often times by letting others' conduct and words inform you about themselves which is almost always more effective and telling than anything I might say.
TAL is anything but an authentic pro-life organization. It sows confusion among well-meaning and intentioned pro-life grassroots and continues the misdirection of the Texas Catholic Conference of Bishops ("TCCB"), some misguided (I'm being generous) politicians, and the pro-abortion Texas medical lobby (the Texas Medical Association, "TMA") to promote legislation that is not pro-life: the unholy alliance, as it has been called by some. I refer to them as The Usual Suspects. This is especially true of end-of-life / denial-of-care matters. But TAL works to water down legislation that would save more preborn babies as well. If you've been reading this blog for 5 minutes or less, you know that a big reason we continue to have euthanasia in Texas - involuntary passive euthanasia - is because of TAL and the TCCB as well as the TMA and weak, anti-life Republican leadership. In my most recent post, I reminded you that if you give one red cent to TAL (and the TCCB for that matter) you are promoting euthanasia, harming families, and supporting an organization that unnecessarily weakens and undermines the pro-life legislation that it doesn't outright oppose.
Given what it does to misdirect, misguide, and mislead on legislation, it's no surprise at all that TAL co-opted a URL with Texas Right to Life in it to misdirect, misguide, and mislead supporters of Texas Right to Life to TAL's own site and dinner. Unable to stand on its own merits, it must lie, cheat, and attempt to steal from another. How sad. How telling. Remember: If people will do this about small, relatively petty things, they will do it about bigger things. We've seen that consistently already. As we all know, sin begets more sin. Now you know even more. Resist them and their ilk.
I'll see you in Houston, and again in Dallas, at the authentic Texas Right to Life dinners.
