“These organizations will provide what they need and it is far beyond birth. We have never met a woman that sought abortion as her first choice. Typically, women seek abortion because they feel they have no way out. The City of Austin is not helping them in those circumstances. What we should be doing is using taxpayer dollars to promote compassionate alternatives to an abortion,” said Pojman.
TEXAS – A judge won’t order federal officials to allow a pregnant 17-year-old undocumented immigrant being held in a Texas immigration facility to get an abortion. Anti-abortion groups also say they’re concerned that granting undocumented immigrants the right to abortions could spark a flood of women seeking care coming over the border.
“We don’t think Texas should be a tourist state or place women come seeking abortions,” said Texas Alliance for Life Executive Director Joe Pojman.
“It is unconscionable that our tax dollars, federal and state tax dollars, would go to Planned Parenthood when they are apparently engaging in Medicaid fraud. Breaking laws regarding the sale of the tissue and organs of babies who die from abortion,” Pojman said.
