He cited federal mandates requiring oertain information and documentation for vehicle purchases and bank loans and noted th* no mandate is in place requiring th* information be provided to women considering abortion. Thomas he once challenged a former director of NOW (National Organization of Womens promising to never agrin address the subject of abortion if she would support the idea of supplying women who are considering abortion with information on abortion and show them a picture of “what they are about to oesooy. "Why can't we give information?,'' he said. “There it truth in labeling. There it certain inform*ioo required to be on a sales Kicker on a car to inform potential buyers about the vehicle they are considering to buy. Why can't we provide women with information about abortion? They aren’t being given a choice * all."

Thomas encouraged support of the New Braunfels Crisis Pregnancy Center, comparing foe effort to save unborn children to helping Jews escape foe Nazis and abolitionists freeing the slaves. “It it a tremendous feeling to know th* you've made a difference, whether it be one child or 33," he laid. “Have you ever held a child th* you helped save?
