December 2019 – A sixth Texas city has implemented an ordinance declaring it a sanctuary for unborn babies. The Gilmer City Council voted 4-1 in favor of the ordinance, joining the growing movement to protect unborn babies from abortion at the local and government level. One leading advocate of the new pro-life ordinances is Mark Lee Dickson, director of East Texas Right to Life. “Those are human beings, just as human as me and you,” Dickson said. “And all we are saying here is in our cities, we do not want those kids to be killed.” The ordinance prohibits abortions and bans abortion facilities from opening within city limits.
