Texas Abortion Restrictions

How Texas’ powerful but fractured abortion opposition helped bring down Roe v. Wade

Texas’ anti-abortion movement is on the cusp of achieving a goal 50 years in the making. Now, it’ll be up to the old guard and new torchbearers to decide what’s next.

Mark Lee Dickson speaks during a worship service at New Hope Church in Abilene on Dec. 12, 2021, calling on the audience to sign the petition to add the abortion ban ordinance on the ballot next election. “There’s coming a day here in Abilene that we’re going to see Abilene become a sanctuary city for the unborn,” he said. “There are going to be a lot of unborn children leaping in their mothers’ wombs at that decision.”
