I Vote Pro-Life (woman holding sign)A Texas city is considering a ban on abortion, but one legislator sees indications that the council might not approve it.

In 2014, Planned Parenthood shut down its abortion facility in Lubbock, Texas because of a change in state law. But now the abortion giant is trying to hire personnel and establish a new clinic in the city. For that reason, the city council has been asked to follow the lead of seven other cities in the state and pass an ordinance banning abortion.

"The ordinance has … been put in 14 cities around the state," reports Senator Charles Perry (R). "They were challenged initially by the ACLU over some due process issues, and we did agree that there was probably some tweaks that needed to be made. Those tweaks were made, and the subsequent other seven cities outside of the first seven have not been challenged."

In Lubbock there have been some detractors on the city council, and Senator Perry has since learned of a new development.

"The city council went outside the city attorney and hired a Houston firm, with one of the managing partners … of the firm's relatives of recent being the chairman of the Greater Planned Parenthood of Texas," the senator tells OneNewsNow.

The firm was hired to apprise city council members of the ordinance's enforceability and other legal aspects, but this action could be a hint that it might not pass. Senator Perry has acted on faith to address a letter to the council, encouraging the members to approve the abortion ban, and he says it is time for people of faith to engage in this conversation and stand on the firm ground of scripture.
