Supporters of these anti-abortion bills say the restrictions imposed in the bills will save lives.
“It really shows a reverence and a prioritizing of protecting innocent human life while continuing to promote compassionate alternatives to abortion,” said Joe Pojam, executive director of Texas Alliance for Life.
Pojam said his organization would continue to promote compassionate alternatives even if the bills become law.
“If the state is allowed to protect unborn babies from abortion, those women have vast resources, and it’s just a question of letting them know that,” he said.
He added that Texas Alliance for Life had resources available for pregnant mothers in need.
For the seven bills to be signed into law by Governor Greg Abbott, they would first have to be passed by the majority Republican Texas State House of Representatives.
