Texas Right to Life considers Representative Stickland a tried and true friend for the preborn, the disabled, and the elderly. Here are just a few examples of Jonathan Stickland’s unapologetic defense of Life:
• When House Leadership refused to allow Pro-Life policies to be heard on the floor of the Texas House, Representative Stickland filed amendments forcing the liberal Speaker Straus/Byron Cook gang to the negotiating table.
• Representative Stickland and his staff study and employ needed procedural rules to bring Life issues on to the House floor and to protect Texas Right to Life’s freedom of speech.
• On Planned Parenthood’s lobby day at the Capitol, Representative Stickland took the opportunity to showcase the humanity of the preborn by hanging a sign outside his office that proclaimed Representative Stickland as a “former fetus.” (Anti-Life members were filing bills to dehumanize the preborn in our state’s laws.) That same day, Stickland refused to be silent when some of his colleagues used obscure House administration rules to bully his staff into removing the harmless sign.
• Representative Stickland filed legislation aimed at eliminating the monopoly held by the Texas Medical Association (TMA) over Pro-Life physicians. The TMA has achieved a 12-year documented history of opposing all Pro-Life measures in the legislature.
