Despite the fact that many pro-lifers are celebrating the passing of the ordinance, there are some who argue it is an ineffective strategy for fighting abortion. Dr. Joe Pojman of the Texas Alliance for Life told the Avalanche-Journal that even though he applauds the efforts of those who have fought for the ordinance, he believes it will simply lead to a lot of expense and energy until it is finally determined to be unconstitutional. “A local ordinance or a state law that bans abortions immediately is not going to stop abortions,” he said. “It has been tried many times and none of those work. We need more votes on the Supreme Court who are willing to take a fresh look at Roe v. Wade.”
