Texas Supreme Court weighs whether to dismiss abortion funds’ defamation case against anti-abortion activist

Several abortion funds have sued anti-abortion activist Mark Lee Dickson, who called them “criminal organizations,” for defamation.

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.”
