Joe Pojman, executive director of the anti-abortion Texas Alliance for Life, said the ruling struck down “common-sense regulations to protect the health and safety of women at substandard abortion facilities.”
Abortion-rights supporters “are milking this issue and they’ve painted a very distorted picture of the situation facing low-income women,” said Joe Pojman, executive director of the Texas Alliance for Life, which opposes abortion. “There are more family-planning dollars available than in any time in the recent past.”
Joe Pojman, executive director of Texas Alliance for Life, which opposes abortion, praised the ruling because he said it will lead to safer clinics.
Texas Governor Perry said the decision affirms the state’s right to protect fetuses and the health of the women.
“We will continue doing everything we can to protect a culture of life in our state,” he said in a statement.
“These changes would be a tremendous raising of the level of care for women,” said Joe Pojman, executive director of the Texas Alliance for Life, a group based in Austin that opposes abortion except to protect the mother’s life.
