Joe Pojman, executive director of the Texas Alliance for Life, told Catholic News his organization was “thrilled” with the state Senate’s approval of legislation intended to stop parents from suing doctors if their baby is born with a birth defect that the doctor didn’t warn them about. “It reverses a decades-old injustice and bad public policy that devalues babies, both unborn and born, who have a disability,” Pojman said. “In our view, S.B. 25 eliminates wrongful birth lawsuits while holding doctors accountable to practicing good medicine.”
