Also known as Right to Life Advocates, founded in 1974, net earnings of which are devoted exclusively to charitable, educational and Pro-Life purposes. Life Advocates supports positive, pro-life solutions to human problems as alternatives to abortion, euthanasia, infanticide, or other deliberate destruction of human beings. We have been involved in the legislative process from the beginning, promoting issues and legislation protecting the innocent unborn, as well as other important issues affecting families.
Statement of Purpose
WE HOLD THESE TRUTHS TO BE SELF-EVIDENT:
That all men are created equal and are endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights, among which is...
THE RIGHT TO LIFE;
AND That the very existence of human life conveys a supreme value that is absolute and unsurrenderable, regardless of: size, age, degree of development, physical or mental competence, state of health, condition of dependency, or any relative values such as wantedness or usefulness, or political, religious, social, financial, or racial characteristics or conditions;
AND That human life begins at the moment of union of the mother's ovum and the father's sperm and is one continuum and inviolable until natural death unquestionably has occurred.
The right to life of each human being shall be equally preserved and protected by every other human being in the society and by the society as a whole. If doubt exists whether a human being exists and is alive, then because of that possibility that a human life does exist, it shall be assumed that there is a human life until all doubt can be dismissed, otherwise the full rights of a human being shall be preserved and protected.
No relative value judgment shall be exercised favoring or denying one human life relative to another, so that attack upon human life is allowed.
Pursuant to these principles, we, live human beings, join in the defense of the RIGHT TO LIFE of all human beings, so that, and we, may share the liberty and pursuit of happiness we all so cherish.
To this end, LIFE ADVOCATES support positive pro-life solutions to human problems as alternatives to abortion, euthanasia, infanticide, or other deliberate destruction of human beings. We seek to form our society in such a way that any such deliberate and violent action will remain an unspeakable crime.

A Texas judge has dismissed the last remaining charge against two California anti-abortion activists who made undercover videos of themselves trying to buy fetal tissue from Planned Parenthood.

- Woman's Right to Know
Dear Pro–life Friends,
We urgently need you two write two quick emails to support pro–life initiatives in the Texas Department of State Health Services, which regulates abortion facilities. Your emails will take only a couple of minutes, but they may save many lives.
Since the Texas Legislature passed the Woman's Right to Know Act in 2003, a priority of Texas Alliance for Life that year, each abortion provider must give women considering abortion the state-produced Woman's Right to Know Informational Material. This is a booklet that gives information about the developing unborn child, the methods and risks of abortion, and alternatives.
The Department of State Health Services is revising that brochure. The new version is easier to read and more informative. We urge you to write to support that brochure. We have been told that abortion providers hate this brochure because of the information it provides to women considering abortion.
Please write as soon as possible. Comments should be emailed by Friday, July 29, 2016Thank you!

- Support Governor Greg Abbott's Pro–life Regulations
Dear Pro–life Friends,
Over the years pro-lifers, including some of us at the Foundation for Life office, have discovered the bodies of aborted babies in dumpsters and in garbage bags behind abortion clinics in Houston. Sometimes we've been able to arrange funerals for them and a Christian burial in the baby sections of local cemeteries. Many of us especially remember a very late-term aborted baby boy found in a bucket at a Houston abortion clinic. We named him "Baby David", held a very moving funeral and arranged for his burial at a local cemetery. This precious baby's picture and a DVD of the entire event has been seen by pro-lifers throughout the country. Baby David was certainly an exception; millions of other precious unborn babies have been shoved down garbage disposals or incinerated and disposed of as“medical waste”.
But now, our pro–life Texas Governor, Greg Abbott, has instructed our state's Health and Human Services Commission to introduce proposed regulations requiring burial or cremation to dispose of aborted babies rather than by “grinding and discharging their bodies into a sanitary sewer system”.
The proposed new rules are currently open for comment and must be submitted by July 30.
Please take a few minutes and submit your comments to:
Allison Hughes, Health Facilities Rule Coordinator, Health Care Quality Section and specify in subject line “Comments on special waste from health care facilities” or click the link provided.
Please act immediately and ask your family and friends to do the same.Thank you!

- Will the decision affect pro–life organizations?
Will the decision affect pro–life organizations providing maternal assistance in crises pregnancies such as Foundation for Life? We at Life Advocates are of course, disappointed about the SCOTUS decision to strike down HB2 by a vote of 5 to 3. The issue was never about the woman’s ability to get an abortion; the issue was about a safer, cleaner environment at these clinics, ensuring that doctors had privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the abortion facility in case something went wrong.
Will the decision affect prolife organizations providing maternal assistance in crises pregnancies such as Foundation for Life? — No!
Unfortunately, the ones who will be affected are the women who use abortion facilities, which will no longer be held up to health and safety standards. The standards were the same as other ambulatory outpatient surgical facilities, which made sense as surgical abortions are considered “blind” surgery.
We expect to hear from more women who are seeking legal help for injuries incurred as a result of a botched abortion. We will continue to offer free help to women in crises pregnancies so that they will be able to make life-saving choices for themselves and their unborn child.
We continue to stand on the side of life.
