We’ve all heard of sanctuary cities where local governments have refused to cooperate with the federal government by reporting illegal aliens. Now there are “sanctuary cities for the unborn.” These are cities that are going on record to protect the unborn from abortion in their communities.   The City of East Mountain, Texas (Population 797) became the 14th city in the nation to pass a law banning abortion within city limits.  Texas Right to Life (TRL) has spearheaded the movement and applauded the recent action by the East Mountain, Texas City Council. TRL referenced Amos 5:15 which says ‘Hate evil, and love good, and establish justice in the city gate.’” Expect the movement to gain steam as more Americans identify as pro-life.
