About the Ordinance
The Palestine Ordinance
“Murder is illegal.” - Howard C.
“It is murder!” - Cindy J.
“I live in Palestine but Pastor in Rusk. If Rusk can do this so can Palestine.” - Marin B.
“I want to see abortion outlawed in Palestine, Texas because it is the murder of an innocent life and resources need to be easy and readily available for other options of help that does not end an innocent life. Help that is free and plentiful with help for the carrying mother. I have room to talk. I was one who chose to end my baby's innocent life when I was a teenager. I loved in an inward prison of hell most of my life from that choice I made that was selfish.” - Amanda K.
“Abortion is murder. Their bodies should not be used in food, vaccines, or anything pertaining to human ingestion. Our world is so corrupt and sick because of everything being allowed and morals slipping to evil.” - Erin B.
“Because abortion is murder. It is a sin and against God's law.” - Byron B.
“It’s unbiblical.” - Dwayne G.
“Because it’s murder. I want to see abortion outlawed in my city and everywhere.” - Jessica N.
“It is against any MORAL law. If a criminal can be jailed for killing, or hurting, a pregnant Mother because the baby died, then any killing of a baby in the womb should carry the same sentence. Science has finally recognized at the immediate point of pregnancy a fetus is already a person in progress.” - Sharlene G.
“It is Murder of the most inhumane kind!” - Silvia G.

I believe that God has formed each child in the womb for a purpose to be filled on this Earth and that each child is a blessing. I believe that life starts at conception and that we ought to reach our community in a more valuable way, increasing practices in abstinence and advocating for adoption or educating and equipping mothers as well as fathers.” - Maggie B.
