30th Texas City Bans Abortion, Refers Itself as 'Sanctuary City for the Unborn'

On Wednesday, Eastland, a central city in Texas banned abortion, describing itself as a ‘’sanctuary city for the unborn.’’ According to Texas Right to Life, the city became the 30th active jurisdiction to take this order when an ordinance restricting the procedure was collectively passed by its commissioners.

The ordinance does not punish the woman who desires the abortion. However, individuals who gain from taking the life of the unborn child will be held accountable, including the doctor who did the abortion.

In a statement, the organization said, "Texas Right to Life applauds the efforts of Eastland's Pro-Life citizens in bold defense of Life, and urges other cities across Texas to join the growing movement to protect women and preborn children.’’

In 2019, the state's "sanctuary city for the unborn" movement started when the city of Waskom passed a resolution restricting abortion and referring itself as a sanctuary city. Waskom is situated just a few miles from Louisiana.

Almost all of the sanctuary cities are devoid of abortion clinics except in Lubbock, Texas. However, a measure that seeks to ban abortion was passed by voters in the city. After the measure was passed, the Planned Parenthood clinic in the city stopped carrying out abortions.

A link was added on the website of Texas Right to Life. This link explains how citizens can persuade their local politicians to maintain the concept. According to the organization, City councils in Texas "are doing more to stop abortion than the entire U.S. Congress."

"You and your community can take matters into your own hands by petitioning your local government to protect unborn children. These victories occurred because citizens boldly asked their local governments to take a stand against Roe v. Wade and the abortion industry. You can follow their example and lead the way for your town to be the next 'Sanctuary City for the Unborn' in Texas," the website added.
