People from Midland, Corpus Christi, Houston and elsewhere to about 30 charter buses to the event, said Joe Pojman, executive director of Texas Alliance for Life and a member of the event host committee. Pojman said Saturday’s crowd was the biggest he had ever seen in his 30 years attending the anti-abortion rally
Texans from across the state gathered Saturday to march to the Texas Capitol at the Texas Rally For Life. Marchers began at a parking lot at Congress Avenue and 18th Street in front of the Bullock Texas State History Museum and made their way to the Capitol, where the anti-abortion rally was held on the south steps.
“It is unconscionable that anyone would defend the grinding and flushing of bodies of unborn babies who are victims of abortions down the drain into a city sewer system as if they were mere medical waste,” Joe Pojman with the Texas Alliance for Life testified Wednesday.
“Texas may be where Roe v. Wade began, but now Texas is leading the nation in passing pro-life laws protecting innocent life than ever before,” Abbott said. “There’s a lot that we need to do next session.”
“We believe that Texas law should be changed to assure that the bodies of the victims of abortion are not treated like medical waste,” said Joe Pojman, executive director of Texas Alliance for Life. “These proposed rule validate the dignity of those unborn babies whose lives are unfortunately lost to abortion.”
But Joe Pojman, executive director for the Texas Alliance for Life, said that by changing its standards the FDA had “moved Texas backward in protecting the health of women.” Pojman said that requiring the pills to be taken under the direct supervision of a doctor diminishes the chances of potentially life-threatening complications.
