Anti-abortion groups in Texas are hoping to capitalize off of President Trump’s success filling the U. S Supreme Court. Dr. Joe Pojman with the Texas Alliance for Life says their top priority in the upcoming state legislature is to make abortion against state law.
“We are hopeful that the Supreme Court will take a fresh look at Roe vs. Wade. We don’t know if that’s gonna happen, but when and to the extent that it happens, this bill will be ready to bring into effect,” says Pojman.
Sarah Wheat of Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas says their top priority is to expand access to health care for low income and uninsured Texas women.
