What would you do if your hospital said they would pull the plug against your will in just 10 days?
For many Texas families, this horrible scenario is REAL.
The Texas 10-Day Rule allows hospital committees to make life-or-death decisions instead of patients and families.
Don’t let this happen to you.
A Texas House committee will consider a bill on Wednesday, April 14, to end the 10-Day Rule. Will you join us this Wednesday in Austin to defend Life?
If you can’t travel to Austin, you can register your support online.
- Visit comments.house.texas.gov and enter your information (Texas residents only);
- Select HB 2609 by Parker (Public Health April 14, 2021 – 8:00 AM [JHR 140]); and
- Write why you SUPPORT HB 2609 to end the 10-Day Rule.
If you’re on the fence, or if you don’t think your support will matter, just watch these families tell their heartbreaking stories.
Now is our chance to END the horrible 10-Day Rule! We must pass HB 2609! But the powerful medical lobby is working overtime to deceive your lawmakers and kill this life-saving bill. They disguise this form of involuntary euthanasia as “ending patient suffering.”
Will you stand up right now for Texas patients?
In addition to the Respecting Texas Patients’ Right to Life Act (HB 2609), the Texas House committee will also hear a bill to protect Pro-Life doctors from being forced to participate in life-ending procedures (HB 1424).
