“It’s a problem. It’s a growing epidemic. It’s something that we think is not just going to stop in East Texas. We expect it to move to other parts of the state,” said Drucilla Tigner, a political strategist for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Texas.
And now it has! Thank you City of Westbrook for becoming the first West Texas town to pass this important ordinance supporting Life. I encourage all of the cities in HD60 to do the same and am happy to help in anyway I can. #ProLife"
