- Dismemberment Abortion Ban

Preborn children with disabilities or the non-preferred gender are victims of discriminatory abortions. PreNDA would close the loopholes in current Texas Pro-Life laws.

After overcoming some setbacks, the first Pro-Life billboard in MCRTL’s billboard campaign is now up on SH 105 around Old 105 Rd east of Lake Conroe!
MCRTL began the billboard effort about a year ago. After months of design and work finding a location, the billboard was set to be launched on July 4, 2016 on a site along the I-45 feeder road. Unfortunately on June 28th MCRTL received an email from the billboard company stating, “We regret to inform you that we will not able to run the MCRTL billboard campaign.” just one day after the Supreme Court’s ruling striking down Texas’ HB2 abortion restriction law
. The company stated that the billboard message of “Every life…Priceless” was too controversial! Incredibly, this was not the only company to subsequently turn down the messaging for that same reason.
However, Clear Channel Outdoor
has now partnered with MCRTL, and we are extremely grateful.
We know that lasting change toward a respect for Life will only occur as hearts and minds come to understand the value of each life. This is grassroots change that comes through love and communication.
The vision of MCRTL’s billboard effort is to bring the message of Life to a wider portion of our community. The billboard(s) will speak directly to individuals and will undoubtedly start conversations in our community about the value of life. Our vision is to have multiple signs speaking a clear, loving message.
Although we were not able to begin the campaign along the highly visible I-45 corridor, SH 105 near the lake is a wonderful start. We believe a door will open for an I-45 site as well – hopefully soon!
Please drive by and view the sign and then talk about it with your neighbors. Let’s maximize the billboard’s effectiveness. Also, please take time to contact Clear Channel
and thank them for their participation. Let’s also thank God for His provision and what He will accomplish through this effort!
Many thanks again to our billboard donors and to Congressman Kevin Brady for spearheading the initial fundraising effort.
