Texas Towns Are Creating Pro-Life Sanctuary Cities for the Unborn

Published

on

The Texan reports that pro-life activists in Gilmer and Abilene are pushing their city councils to pass ordinances that would establish a “sanctuary city for the unborn”,  thus banning abortion in the city limits.

These “sanctuaries” for the unborn are sprouting all across the Lone Star State.

A resident of Abilene, Charles Byrn, led the push to get the city council to pass a pro-life sanctuary in his town.

He added, “The next step is to get it on the agenda and pass it.”

The Texan reached out to Mayor Tim Marshall of Gilmer, a small town in East Texas.

Marshall told The Texan that he was not hostile to the idea of a pro-life sanctuary, but did not want to establish one based on a “knee-jerk” reaction.

The Mayor claimed that the council would have to listen to what the citizens of Gilmer have to say on the matter.

Mark Lee Dickson, the director of East Texas Right to Life, expressed his concern at a city council meeting in Gilmer.

Dickson has prior experience in successfully leading the passage of a pro-life resolution in Waskom.

In June, the Waskom city council voted unanimously to declare the town a pro-life sanctuary. This town was the first in the Lone Star State to pass such an ordinance.

Mayor Christopher Perricone of Mineral Wells brought forward a similar resolution to his city council. However, The Texan reports that “the council blocked a vote to move forward with a formal discussion of the resolution in a 5-2 decision.”

The council members who opposed the measure said that they wanted the city to avoid having to face a lawsuit.

The Mineral Wells Chamber of Commerce also chimed in on the sanctuary.

They were opposed to the ordinance because they believed that it would not attract businesses to the city.

On the other hand, the Waskom Chamber of Commerce told The Texan that they were not aware of any businesses that threatened to leave their town after their pro-life sanctuary policy passed in June.

Pro-life advocates are playing it safe by establishing these sanctuaries.

The Texan reports that “Byrn told the city council he was concerned about a $9 million grant that Planned Parenthood received to open two abortion clinics in West Texas. He said that Abilene is one of the potential cities the organization is considering.”

This latest push to establish pro-life sanctuaries is another case of grassroots activists taking matters into their own hands.

After a disappointing legislative session for conservatives in Texas, grassroots activists to become creative in their strategies to pass conservative legislation.

Published

on

Antony Ferrill, the man accused of killing five co-workers and himself at a Molson Coors plant, reportedly had a long-running dispute with the co-worker .

The New York Post reported that Ferrill had frequently gotten into arguments with one of the victims he killed, a fellow electrician, according to an account that an employee related to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

The two co-workers had been accusing each other of going into each other’s’ offices and messing with computer equipment or swiping tools, according to a source, who did not want to be named.

The source also noted that Ferrill frequently watched movies on his phone throughout the day, which other co-workers complained about, and Ferrill believed he was being discriminated against because he was black.

Earlier in the day, Ferrill had been fired but ended up returning to the business facility with a stolen name tag and his firearm, according to WBBM-TV.

Ferrill had worked as an electrician for over 20 years. 17 of those years were spent at the Milwaukee brewery, according to a report from the Sentinel, which pointed to various sources and online employment records.

The tradesman turned murderer started to become paranoid at work, reportedly telling co-workers about a year ago that he suspected his bosses were breaking into his house, hacking his computer. and rearranging his furniture.

“I was, ‘Are you serious, Anthony? What?’” the unnamed employee informed the Sentinel. “We all kind of joked about it, saying we should maybe get him an aluminum hat. But he was dead serious about it.”

According to Phillip Rauch Sr., who worked with Ferrill for 15 years at the brewery, he was “a very good electrician.”

“Every time I worked with him, he was always in a good mood,” Rauch told the Sentinel.

Interestingly, the media did not focus much on the story.

Paul Joseph Watson of Infowars noted this on Twitter.

He tweeted, “Wow, this disappeared from the discussion quickly.”

Simply put, when a non-White commits an atrocity, the media will do everything it can to downplay it.

However, when a white person carries out a shooting, there will be non-stop coverage about growing white supremacy or other bugaboos the media is willing to conjure up.
