(ChurchLeaders) The city of Lubbock, Texas, has just passed an ordinance making it a sanctuary city for the unborn and the twenty-sixth U.S. city to outlaw abortion. The ordinance was passed in large part thanks to the efforts of local churches.
“LIFE WINS! Lubbock, Texas is officially the largest Sanctuary City for the Unborn in the United States!” said Project Destiny Lubbock, a political action committee (PAC), in a Facebook post celebrating the passing of the ordinance.
“The Church of Jesus Christ banded together, stepped up to their role, their God-given role, and said we’re not going to let babies be killed in our city,” Jim Baxa of West Texas for Life told the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal. “All these churches banded together. There were 200 churches in the City of Lubbock, working together to stand up for life. It’s excellent.”
