“Actively undermining the law to benefit criminals and abortionists makes no sense. Proposition A empowers lawlessness as those attacking houses of worship and pregnancy care centers are allowed to continue acts of domestic terrorism. Rolling back commonsense regulations that protect the preborn and women from abortion in Texas does nothing to address the real issues experienced by unplanned pregnancy,” said Faith Elwonger, SFLA Texas Regional Coordinator. “This confusing ballot measure allows the violence of abortion to become violence on our communities.”
SAN ANTONIO, TX (04-19-2023) – In response to the May 6, 2023, vote on Proposition A on the San Antonio ballot, Students for Life of America (SFLA) is joining Texas Right to Life, Texas Alliance for Life, and San Antonio Coalition for Life at City Hall on Thursday, April 20, to speak against the passage of the proposed measure.
Beginning at 10:00 AM local time, SFLA and pro-life activists will bring awareness to the dangers that would come if voters approve Proposition A. “This measure undermines Texas state laws prohibiting elective abortion and its confusing rhetoric will draw uncertainty at the polls,” added Elwonger.
The proposition in question covers various issues including:
- Banning arrests for illegal abortions up to birth.
- Preventing arrests for theft and vandalism at churches, businesses, and healthcare facilities.
- Stopping San Antonio police from upholding their oath to enforce Texas laws.
SFLA noted that throwing abortion in this ballot provides a lack of clarity, but is educating their base on the bottom line: Proposition A would decriminalize abortion in the city of San Antonio, meaning that arrests for illegal abortions performed from conception all the way to birth will be prohibited.
Not only does Proposition A prevent San Antonio police from effectively doing their job, it leaves the door open on a variety of issues perpetrated by abortion. “Abusers could use the fact that abortions won’t be reported to continue their abuse. This would be a destructive step back for San Antonio women and Texas women as a whole,” Elwonger noted.
After their remarks at City Hall, SFLA plans to canvass the community and educate voters on the dangerous realities of Proposition A.
