WESTBROOK, TEXAS – The town of Westbrook in West Texas voted unanimously on the pro-life ordinance, banning abortions and abortion facilities in their city and declaring it to be a place where unborn babies are protected and valued.
Earlier this year, Waskom, Naples, Joaquin, Tenaha and Gilmer also approved sanctuary city ordinances to protect unborn babies. Omaha was the sixth city, but it recently retracted the ordinance and passed a non-enforceable resolution instead, The Texan reports.
Leading the sanctuary city effort is Mark Lee Dickson, director of Right to Life of East Texas.
“The City of Westbrook is the first city in West Texas to pass an ordinance and many more cities are expected to follow in the coming weeks. Praise Jesus!” Dickson wrote on Facebook after the vote.
More cities are expected to follow. The biggest may be Big Spring (population 27,000), which is slated to consider a pro-life ordinance on Dec. 10.
“As a longtime believer in the right to life for the unborn, I look forward to bringing the anti-abortion ordinance to the council at our next meeting,” Mayor Shannon Thomason recently told the Big Spring Herald.
But abortion activists already are planning ways to fight back and keep the killing of unborn babies legal and widely available. ….
