Have you called your State House member and asked he/she to vote for a true conservative speaker of the House? Click here for contact information. http://capwiz.com/libertyinstitute/callalert/index.tt?alertid=19405501

Sometime between now and January 11, 2011,the 150 member Texas House of Representatives will select a Speaker of the House.  The vote for a Speaker is a vote by House members just like any other legislative vote during the legislative session.  Don’t let elected officials shut you out of the process.  You have the right and freedom as their constituents to let them know how that they can represent you best by selecting a true conservative for Texas Speaker of the House.

The current Speaker is Joe Straus, well known as a moderate Republican, from San Antonio. 

The Republican/Democrat split in the Texas House is 99-51, due to a dramatic increase of wins by Republicans in State House races in the Novermber 2010 elections.  The split in 2009 when Straus was elected was 76-74.

Winning for Women is a Planned Parenthood of San Antonio political action committee (PAC).  This is the Planned Parenthood PAC that gave money to Joe Straus. http://sanantonioyoungdemocrats.blogspot.com/

How many other “pro-life” Republican Texas House members have received money from Planned Parenthood?  I would be very surprised if any other “pro-life” Texas House Republican has this distinction, other than Joe Straus.

Also, Joe Straus Supported Planned Parenthood Backed Sex Education Bill; HB 1842 (2007)

?             Joe Straus was a coauthor of the so-called “Texas Prevention First Act”, a Planned Parenthood backed bill that would have changed sex education and would have prevented schools from teaching about the actual failure rates for condoms and contraception with “human use reality rates” so students know that condoms can be more unreliable than advertised.   The main author of HB 1842 was Democrat Rep. Mark Strama, a very strong ally of Planned Parenthood.  Click here for details. HB 1842 was on of Planned Parenthood’s top priorities to pass in 2007. This bill was also supported by NARAL/Pro-Choice America, NOW, and the ACLU of Texas.  http://www.ppgmv.org/ppaustin/lobby-day-2007.htm

Also see the list of here of opposition to HB 1842 by pro-family/pro-life groups:  http://www.capitol.state.tx.us/tlodocs/80R/witlistbill/html/HB01842H.htm

Planned Parenthood “Thanks” Joe Straus:  If  you are a true pro-life legislator, does Planned Parenthood ever thank you for your efforts.  No, they don’t.  Unless you’re Joe Straus.  below.
