Omaha, Texas

Omaha, Texas is located in Morris County. 


During Morris County's 2016 Presidential Election 69.3% voted Republican, 28.7% voted Democrat, and 2.1% voted for other candidates. 


During the 2018 Republican Party Primary, voters had the opportunity to vote on proposition #7. This proposition gave voters the chance to voice their opinion if they were "In Favor" or "Against" this following statement: " I believe abortion should be abolished in Texas." In Morris County, out of 1,244 votes, 942 voted in favor of the idea of abolishing abortion in the state of Texas and 302 voted against the idea abolishing abortion in the state of Texas.   


The population of Omaha, Texas is 1,021. 


On September 9th, 2019 the City Council of Omaha voted on the Sanctuary City for the Unborn ordinance. The vote was unanimous. In taking this action the City of Omaha became the second city to outlaw abortion in the nation. 


But then something happened . . . 


On October 14th, 2019 the City Attorney for the City of Omaha - Wayne Paul Frank from Grapevine, Texas attempted to "walk back" the City Council from the Ordinance and convince them to adopt a resolution instead. Technically the ordinance was never voted down, but it was clear that was the desired intention of the majority of the City Council. Out of the 5 City Council members 3 voted in favor of the resolution (over the ordinance). This makes the City of Omaha the first in the nation to reject an ordinance outlawing abortion that they previously had passed.


It was clear that despite the many pleas of the citizens of Omaha, the City Council of Omaha listened to a lawyer from Grapevine,Texas over the citizens of Omaha. It should be noted that the City Attorney of Omaha was unwilling to talk with any of the lawyers who were involved in the writing of the Omaha Ordinance.


Due to the people of Omaha who want to see their city return to the original ordinance and the discussions that are presently happening about voting people out of office and electing people who represent the people of Omaha - we consider Omaha to now be a potential Sanctuary City for the Unborn.
