Jacksboro Speaks Out!

Why Jacksboro Residents Want To See Abortion Outlawed in Their City

“I am the Mayor of Jacksboro and want to promote God’s work. He said he knew us before we were formed. God gives us free will and I believe will judge us on what we do and what we didn’t do. God Bless Jacksboro.” - Alton M. 

“Abortion is wrong and against God’s will for us. Lowers morality of our city. Precautions should be taken before sex to prevent pregnancy, not after pregnancy is confirmed.” - Sandra F.

“I believe it is against God’s will. It destroys a child’s life who never gets a chance for life. People need to know how to take responsibility for their own actions. If they do not want children then take necessary precautions before engaging in intimacy.” - Jerry F.
