Might I suggest the protesters against this intrusion into the doctor patient relationship wear blue as well.

This should help ensure you are let in.

#Stand4Life this Monday as the Second Special Texas Legislative Session kicks off!
We need a large, pro-life presence at the Texas Capital THIS Monday, July 1, 2013, as the Second Special Legislative Session kicks off in order to encourage our elected representatives to pass comprehensive life-saving legislation this session! Our understanding is that there will be thousands attending a pro-abortion rally on the South steps of the Capital among other activities -- we need to make our voice heard through our peaceful, prayerful presence! Please feel free to attend one or all of the following pro-life events.
Guidelines:
• Please wear BLUE to join the unified, pro-life presence
• In all activities, please be peaceful, prayerful & law-abiding
• Remember: we are not there to shout, argue, or confront; we are there to be a simple, unified witness for unborn human life & women in unplanned pregnancies

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
feel pain
• Ask if you can pray for them (if you feel comfortable)

Oh again virtually all of their efforts go to Republicans. Partisan politics?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
