Mark Lee Dickson serves as a Director with Right to Life of East Texas and the founder of the Sanctuary Cities for the Unborn initiative.
Mr. Dickson is a God-fearing, Texas born and raised, pro-life activist who fights for the rights of all human beings from conception to natural death. Dickson and his pro-life activism seeking to defend the lives of the unborn and those who are medically vulnerable in hospitals has been featured in various news outlets, including Fox News, CNN, Washington Post, Huffington Post, and the New York Times.
Dickson is, perhaps, best known for leading 50 cities across the United States in the passing of enforceable ordinances outlawing abortion within their city limits. According to the Washington Times, Dickson may also be the first to have been sued in a defamation lawsuit by the abortion industry for calling abortion murder. The case is currently going before the Supreme Court of Texas.
Dickson was also the only non-government actor named as a defendant in the federal lawsuit regarding the Texas Heartbeat Act which recently went before the Supreme Court of the United States. All nine Justices agreed the case against Dickson should be dismissed.
