Sen. Bob Deuell Champions Life

Good News!

Sen. Deuell (SD-2) authored a bill, SB 1854, to re-authorize the Women’s Health Program which will otherwise ‘sunset’ in September 2011. This bill, if enacted, restricts funds from family planning providers that have affiliates that perform abortions.

SB 1854clearly instructs authorities to enforce this provision. It provides that if lawsuits challenge this provision and prevail, then funding will be removed

altogether. In the past the authorities have been reluctant to deny funding to Planned Parenthood on the basis on probable lawsuits.

Currently over 5,000 care providers can provide family planning services to low-income women. These 5,000 care providers make family planning services more accessible to women in small secluded communities than do Planned Parenthood facilities.

The challenge to volunteer organizations is to connect low-income women to these providers.

  1. Are you sponsoring a bill SB 303 for a “DNR” for patients even if they want it? A measure in the Texas legislature is under fire from a national pro-life group that say it would allow doctors the right to refuse giving CPR to patients.

    The National Right to Life Committee is calling for the defeat of a Texas bill – S.B. 303 – that would allow doctors to impose “Do Not Resuscitate (DNR)” orders on patients even if doing so would violate the patient’s express wishes.

    “Texas S.B. 303 violates the most fundamental tenet of patient autonomy by allowing doctors to strip patients (or their surrogates), of the right to dictate their wishes with regard to CPR,” said Burke Balch, J.D., director of National Right to Life’s Powell Center for Medical Ethics.

      1. This is terrible to have this order to kill people when they are ill!! How can he be Pro-Life when he is supporting a bill to DNR people when they are ill even if they want to live? I just want to know the truth about this man!!! We do NOT want anyone running our government that will kill people just because they are sick!!!! IMPORTANT!!!! I received this from a very well informed group and I want to know the truth!!

  2. Before I trust “well informed people”, I go about informing myself. I suggest you CALL Senator Deuell’s office in Austin and ask about this matter. His Austin number is (512) 463-0102. After you talk with his people, please share with me and our readers what you learn.

    Thanks.
