New York to pass Euthanasia law

Compassion and Choices (formerly the Hemlock Society) seeks to legalize assisted suicide throughout the U.S. In New York governor Cuomo has indicated he would sign the bill to legalize assisted suicide. Yorktown Sommers News is conducting an unscientific poll that will be used for propaganda purposes unless opponents flood these polls. Should New York a right-to-die law? Please vote no and encourage other people to do so as well. 

Take Action: We are saddened and shocked by state legislatures proposing and even passing laws to expand abortion AND repeal laws providing specific protections for babies who live through attempted abortions. Urge your Representative to support the Born-Alive Act by signing the discharge petition and voting to pass the bill. 

Take Action:  Congress will soon vote on H.R. 5 that would add "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" to the definition of sex throughout federal law. 

Two important bills are being considered in committees in the Texas House Of Representatives. You can contact the representatives on this committee (especially Rep. Harless from Houston) to urge them to vote in favor of these important bills. 

HB 1929 This Bill prohibits state and local governments from entering into contracts with abortion providers or affiliates. The TCCB supports this bill to stop local governments from subsidizing abortion providers and affiliates with tax payer supported buildings and programs. 

HB 2350 This bill prohibits abortion, creates a civil penalty offense, and provides a civil cause of action against the abortion physician when the United States Supreme Court overrules, in whole or in part, Roe v. Wade, or issues any other decision that recognizes the authority of the states to prohibit abortion, or if the United States adopts a Constitutional amendment restoring to states the authority to prohibit abortion. The TCCB supports this bill to allow Texas to prohibit abortion to the extent allowed under US Supreme Court precedent.
