I am the pro-life generationCreating “sanctuary cities” for the unborn is a growing movement within the pro-life community thanks to Texans leading the way.

The movement to pass ordinances to ban abortion within city limits can be traced to pro-life activists in East Texas, where it spread throughout the state and then the rest of the nation.

Mark Lee Dickson, who leads Right to Life of East Texas, says the Biden administration wants to increase access to abortions in every U.S. zip code.

“And so, if we don't want abortion access in our cities, we need to take preventative measures,” he tells One News Now. “And we need to do what's necessary to make sure that babies are never murdered in our cities.”

According to Life News, the little town of Carbon (population: 348) became the 20th Texas municipality to outlaw abortions. That effort was led by Mayor Corey Hull, who told LifeNews his mother chose life despite difficult circumstances.

“I believe God has a purpose for every child,” Hull told LifeNews. “I am proof. I am living proof.”

Dickson says he is working with cities in Florida and Tennessee to help protect the unborn there.
