“It’s kind of like going to Europe and measuring things in kilograms instead of pounds,” said Joe Pojman, executive director of the Texas Alliance for Life, an anti-abortion group. “Some people might find this confusing. The important thing is everyone knows what scale we’re using.”
Joe Pojman, the Texas Alliance for Life executive director, said Monday’s ruling proved the current court is hostile to the medical regulation of abortion. The silver lining, he said, is the court fight has driven out doctors who otherwise would have performed the procedure for the last three years.
“Since Planned Parenthood has only a few dozen sites in the state compared to more than 4,600 providers in the Texas Women’s Health Program, we believe there will be ample providers of women’s health services for low-income women across the state,” said Joe Pojman, executive director of Texas Alliance for Life, an Austin-based anti-abortion group.
“Can you imagine the gnashing of teeth, the terrible just outpouring of grief and concern from this group if these videos had been on aborted kittens or puppies? Aren’t you tired of these being fetuses?” said Rep. Jim Keffer, R-Eastland, at the rally sponsored by the Texas Alliance for Life in Austin.
