On Friday's edition of The Chad Hasty Show, Terisa Clark and Eleah Lehnen from Project Destiny joined Chad in the KFYO studio to discuss issues in tomorrow's election on an ordinance which would make the city of Lubbock a sanctuary city for the unborn.

Clark and Lehnen shared the reasons Project Destiny was founded in Lubbock, and addressed some of the rumors and misconceptions about the ordinance.

While speaking about her eye-opening experience during citizen comments in a Lubbock City Council meeting, when she realized the Council was not listening to constituents, Clark said, "There are so many of us citizens that were sitting back thinking we had elected officials that were representing us well, when we realized that that was not necessarily true." Lehnen added, "It was really a favor to us as Lubbock citizens, because we realized, 'Oh, they don't represent us, they don't have the same values in taking a stand where we need them and want them to, expect them to.'"

About the ordinance and it's main goal in being adopted by voters in the city, Clark said,

Really what it does is that it gives us room to address the values of our city in a way that is within the constraints of our state laws and the current constitutitonal ruling of Roe v Wade. And so it acknowledges all of those things, but it also says an unborn child, for Lubbockites, is an unborn human being and deserves a chance to meet it's destiny, to live it's life, and that it needs a voice. And so this ordinance is a place where a citizen of Lubbock can say, 'I want for the unborn to be protected in my city.'
