Recommendations when visiting Legislators:
• Top priority is your own state senator and representative. (Find at www.fyi.legis.state.tx.us). At all times, be respectful, kind, courteous & concise
• Dress appropriately - nice casual or business casual is sufficient
• Sign their guestbook, introduce yourself, mention city/town, and let them know you support the pro-life provisions, below
• Take a business card; thank them for their service!
Talking points when visiting Legislators (based on 4 components of the bill):
• Increase abortion facility safety standards to the level of ambulatory surgical centers to shut down Gosnell-like abortion providers in Texas
• Require the 18,000 RU-486 abortions performed each year in Texas be done according to FDA safety standards
• Require physicians who perform abortions to be qualified to treat life-threatening complications after botched abortions
• Ban abortions on unborn children beginning at 20 weeks after fertilization, when scientific evidence clearly shows babies can
• Ask if you can pray for them (if you feel comfortable)
