In a sign of the desire by Wray’s side to distinguish him as the frontrunner, the pro-Wray Texas Alliance for Life has sent out a er comparing Wray to a scrum of faceless competitors. The er suggests his opponents jumped in the race “at the last minute” to create confusion and cause a runoff that would not fill the seat until after the special session, comparing the alleged obstruction to that of the quorum-breaking House Democrats. The er has especially miffed supporters of Harrison, who did not enter the race at the 11th hour but a few days before the filing dead.

A state pro-life group also applauded the House for advancing the pro-life measure.

“We strongly support the chemical abortion safety protocols in SB 4,” said Texas Alliance for Life’s executive director Joe Pojman, Ph.D. “Texas needs this bill to assure that chemical abortions are performed under the supervision of a physician and with adequate safety protocols.”

Pojman told LifeNews.com that not only do abortion pills end the lives of unborn babies but they also hurt women, as dozens of women have died and thousands have been injured.

He said the need for this bill is demonstrated by the fact that chemical abortions result a 20% complication rate for women, four-time higher than surgical abortions, according to a highly credible study published by the ACOG. Complications include incomplete abortion resulting in baby body parts or placenta remaining in the uterus, future miscarriage and stillbirth from unmanaged Rh factor, and hemorrhaging and death from undiagnosed ectopic pregnancy.

Pojman added that the number of babies losing their lives to the abortion drug is on the rise.

Ever since the Obama-Biden administration relaxed the RU-486 safety protocols in 2016, the numbers of chemical abortion abortions have rapidly increased in Texas — from 5,000 in 2014 to 28,000 in 2020, nearly a six-fold increase. Chemical abortions now account for 53% of all abortions in Texas, according to data from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission.

“Now the Biden-Harris Administration is threatening to remove the FDA’s current in-person dispensing requirement. The physician visit is critically important for protecting the health and safety of woman at abortion facilities,” said Pojman. “Even worse, activist organizations and academic institutions are promoting -order abortions, without any direct supervision of a physician, putting women’s very lives at risk. For example, Project SANA at the University of Texas at Austin LBJ School of Public Affairs brazenly advocates for ‘self-managed abortions’ while several on organization will abortion pills on demand.”

Previously, Texas Alliance for Life executive director Joe Pojman, Ph.D, said pro-abortion groups are putting women’s lives at risk by promoting -order abortion drugs.

He pointed to a study showing that the complication rate for abortion drugs, or chemical abortions, is four times higher than surgical abortions. Complications include incomplete abortion resulting in baby body parts or placenta remaining in the uterus, future miscarriage and stillbirth from unmanaged Rh factor, and hemorrhaging and death from undiagnosed ectopic pregnancy.

Texas Alliance for Life, another pro-life group, called the ruling a “stunning rebuke of abortion providers in Texas.”

“While the law does not ban any abortions, it does prevent the dismemberment of the unborn child if the child is alive,” said Dr. Joe Pojman, Texas Alliance for Life’s executive director.

“While the goal of the pro-life movement remains the complete protection of all unborn babies from abortion, the terrible Supreme Court precedent under Roe v. Wade prevents this…Our hope is that the Court will modify or reverse Roe and allow states to ban abortion when it takes up the Dobbs case later this year.”

Joe Pojman, executive director of Texas Alliance for Life, an anti-abortion group said he’s hopeful the Supreme Court will finish the job of fully banning abortions.

“While the goal of the pro-life movement remains the complete protection of all unborn babies from abortion, the terrible Supreme Court precedent under Roe v. Wade prevents this,” he said. “Our hope is that the Court will modify or reverse Roe and allow states to ban abortion.”
