Texas Observer - Meet the ‘Abolitionists,’ the Most Extreme Anti-Abortion Group at the Texas Lege
This group is so extreme that they would ban all abortions and charge any woman who had one with murder. They openly telling the Texas legislator to defy the “tyranny” of the Supreme Court. Hmmm… Where have I heard calls for “resisting” Judicial “tyranny” before? Lyanne A. Guarecuco reports on this extremist anti choice group and its plans for the “sovereign state of Texas” and presumably the United States.
“WE THE PEOPLE OF THE SOVEREIGN STATE OF TEXAS DEMAND THE TOTAL AND IMMEDIATE ABOLITION OF HUMAN ABORTION.”
Whenever there’s an abortion hearing at the Capitol, members of Abolish Abortion Texas, a 1-year-old religious right group, are likely nearby, handing out pamphlets with that demand emblazoned on the first page.
Unlike established anti-abortion groups, Abolish Abortion Texas is only loosely organized. It doesn’t have a headquarters, hold official meetings or collect dues. But the group maintains a hard, unyielding line on abortion that makes even stridently anti-abortion activists uncomfortable.
