Victory After A Two-Year Battle

In a guest editorial written for Mark Lee Dickson tells the story of how local city council members tried to derail and stall out the pro-life ordinance but how the local population organized to vote in a new city council that promised and delivered.

Earlier this week, the city of Pueblo Colorado used underhanded tactics, including silencing debate, to defeat a novel ordinance that would have circumvented the state’s radical pro-abortion law to protect women and children from abortion in the low-income majority Hispanic city in South Central Colorado. Undoubtedly, pro-lifers in Pueblo will draw inspiration from the victory in Odessa to change the composition of the Pueblo City Council and try again in the next session.
