Alliance for Life Executive Director Joe Pojman, Ph.D., has lobbied for pro-life issues in Austin for 27 years and has played an integral role in the passing of major pro-life bills.
After the Daily Light referenced the Bravenec case, Pojman immediately voiced his heartfelt condolences to the parents.
“That is just so tragic, the pool accident, and the little girl that died from that,” Pojman expressed. “For any parent, just excruciating to watch. Our hearts go out to that family and husband and wife.”
Pojman went into detail on how death is determined by physicians and explained the process families take to appeal decisions made by doctors.
“Texas, like every other state, has a law that defines death,” Pojman said. “For decades now, Texas has had virtually the same definition of death in our law. That is based on very sound medical science.”
Pojman noted that doctors issue a variety of tests to understand brain activity, and once the circulation test exhibits zero blood flow, the findings are definitive.
“The cells die within minutes at that point,” Pojman said matter-of-factly.
To his knowledge, this code has never been challenged in court.

Texas Alliance for Life Executive Director Joe Pojman said that’s different from every other type federal lawsuit because usually it’s a person who is actually being harmed who files a lawsuit.

He said abortion providers speaking on behalf of women is a conflict of interest.

“They oppose safety requirements designed to protect the health and safety of women. For example, for cleanliness, sterilization of surgical instruments used from women to women,” said Pojman.

He said Paxton is being aggressive, yet smart in an effort to block abortion clinics and doctors from challenging state laws on behalf of their patients.

“The attorney general is basically asking the Supreme Court to go back to the usual rules for federal courts and stop giving the abortion providers a free ride,” said Pojman.

He said despite abortion providers not having any women’s names or relationship…this is an unfair free pass unlike else in the federal court system.
