Among a crowd of hundreds outside of Lubbock's Citizens Tower, three stood tall in the center holding signs. A bright pink one read, “I stand with the Planned Parenthood.” They positioned their messages to face Jim Baxa, the leader of West Texas Right to Life.

“We’re just here to pray over the men who are making decisions on the lives of little babies today,” he said.

A citizens’ petition submitted to make Lubbock a “sanctuary city for the unborn,” is valid. The announcement came the same day that Planned Parenthood reopened in the city— the facility plans to provide abortion services in 2021.

The organizing committee, led by seven people including State Sen. Charles Perry, submitted the petition on October 13.
