Why Lamesa Residents Want To See Abortion Outlawed in Their City

“Cause I’m against the slaughter of innocent life” - Brandon S. 

“From conception a baby is truly a LIFE . . . a MIRACLE from OUR LORD!!! Yes, I do understand that a lot are unplanned and sometimes mistakes happen . . . but the BABY, the LIFE inside the Mom’s womb, is not a mistake!!! There are many, many, many women out there who can not have children who would love to take the baby . . . Just make it through the 9 months and have a home lined up after!!!” - Brandi W. 

“Life is miraculous and precious!” - Debbi M.

“It’s murder.” - Lavenda B.

“Unethical. 100% against the teachings of the Bible.” - Kasi S.

“I don’t believe in abortion and I believe if God provides you a child then that child should be born.” - Christy M. 

“I believe that abortion is the murder of innocent lives.” - Jamie P. 

“It is murder of the innocent” - Patrick C.

“There are so many people who struggle with infertility and those babies deserve to be loved.” - Ramona F.

“It’s murder.” - Kecia L.

“Because there are other options out there. People make adult decisions to have sex so they should make the responsible adult decision to take care of the baby or give it up for adoption so another family can. We live in a world now where sometimes the decision is out of adult / children’s hands. Rape is a real thing and sometimes babies come from that. It’s a harsh reality but taking a baby’s life shouldn’t be an option. Beautiful people come out of horrible situations. All lives matter!” - Darby H.


“Abortion is murder! All babies lives matter!!!” - Angela M.

“I believe abortion is a sin.” - Ashley F. 

“There is no excuse for aborting an unborn child. Despite the reasons for why a woman may get pregnant, God can work in many different ways. Many families are dying to have children and cannot and would be willing to give an unwanted child a home. Many other people’s greatest earthly blessings are their own children and lives can be changed through these children. Yes, we should support women that are in the darkest points in their lives who are making this decision, but with love and with a direction toward God and His purpose in hopes that through Him they would keep the child.” - Joshua F. 

“It is murder!” - Sherry W.
