Small Texas Town Declares Itself a “Sanctuary City” for the Unborn

Small Texas Town Declares Itself a “Sanctuary City” for the Unborn

A Sanctuary City I can get behind

A small Texas town nestled up next to the Louisiana border became the first in the great state of Texas to declare itself a “sanctuary city” for the unborn. Waskom has a population of about 2,000 people.

According to FaithWire, the city council voted to make abortion inside of Waskom city limits illegal.

More from FaithWire:

Waskom, a small Texas town with a population just over 2,000 people, this week officially became a “sanctuary city” for the unborn.

In an uncharactaristically packed house Tuesday night, the Waskom City Council approved an ordinance declaring the small town a “sanctuary city for the unborn” — the first municipality in the Lone Star State to do so.

The council members also voted unanimously on a second Right to Life measure to outlaw abortion within the Waskom city limits.

Mark Lee Dickson, director of the East Texas chapter of the pro-life organization Right to Life, told reporters, “We decided to take things into our own hands, and we’ve got to do something to protect our cities and to protect the unborn children.”

According to KTAL-TV, Waskom Mayor Jesse Moore warned residents the city will likely face a lawsuit over the new statute, a legal challenge he said the town cannot afford to lose.

“Most likely, we will end up getting sued if this passes,” he explained. “It could go to the Supreme Court.”

Jesse Moore? I wonder if he is related to Roy Moore?

Way to go Waskom! God bless you and thank you for valuing the lives of the unborn.

Sanctuary for the living. What a topsy-turvy world we live in.

Prohibition. The universal solution to all social problems.

Black Markets – the universal solution to universal solutions.

    It’s not prohibition. They’re just nudging the U.S. Supreme Court to return the regulation of the abhorrent practice of abortion to the states, in the hopes that Texas will allow individual towns to ban the practice within their town limits.

    Think of it as the “dry town” concept. Except that instead of discouraging local alcohol abuse, they’re trying to discourage the local callous disregard of human life.

    Seems like an effort worth fighting for.

      Yes, one wonders why we ever try to enforce “prohibition” on things like murder, robbery, and rape, since some people are just going to do them anyways.

a legal challenge he said the town cannot afford to lose.

C’mon, this is America, land of the best of everything you can buy. I’d be gobsmacked if the town can afford to win it, either.

My wife’s grandparents lived their entire lives in Waskom – real close to the Louisiana border, about 30 miles from Shreveport. Nice little town, proud to see them step up this way.

btw, Waskom won their first ever Texas State Football Championship in 2014. Big deal for a little bitty town, but it’s a place that loves its kids.

A baby… an infant step to ending age discrimination, summary judgment, and cruel and unusual punishment. Progress.

To some of my friends the take away of this was it was voted in by men.

It was completely lost on them that it seems that men value the life if the unborn more than women!!

Of course we then got in to the argument what they really wanted was only certain privilege groups to ever vote on certain issues but only as long as the vote went in their, left liberal, favour.

Obviously gun owners would never be allowed to vote in their own interests without the correct answers being given by liberals (I mean duh!!) Because it never works that way.
