“That so-called blue wave came into Texas, and it crashed on the rocks and went nowhere,” said Joe Pojman, executive director of Texas Alliance for Life, an anti-abortion advocacy group. “I think Republicans and pro-life Democrats understand that they will be rewarded at the polls in 2022 if they vote pro-life. So they can express their convictions by supporting these laws.”
But unlike Seago and Texas Right to Life, Pojman said his organization only backs bills that it believes will survive a federal court challenge.
“Some of the other bills, we’re not confident they’re surviving that,” he said. “We need to wait for the Supreme Court to change the terrible Roe v. Wade precedent to allow bills like that to go into effect.”
