Yet another Texas city has said “no” to abortions in its city limits.
One by one, Texas cities are going on record opposing abortion clinics in their city limits. The latest is the tiny town of Gorman, population fewer than 1,100, making it the 21st municipality in The Lonestar State to declare itself a sanctuary city for the unborn.
Mayor David Perry tells One New Now the Christian community of Gorman values the “sanctity of life” so he put the issue on the board agenda for city leaders to discuss and debate an ordinance.
“And it passed unanimously,” he says, with 17 of 18 towns people speaking favorably.
The issue of a potential legal challenge was discussed but city leaders have been advised the town would receive free legal advice if that occurs.
One News Now reported in a March 2 story the pro-life push for “sanctuary cities” for the unborn began in Texas and is being copied in other states, too.
“We just wanted to send a message that we do not approve of abortions in Gorman, Texas,” the mayor explains, “and wanted to send a message to the children of our community about our values.”
