“Texas has an abundance of pro-life voters, and our goal is to get them excited about the pro-life candidates on the ballot and turn them out to vote,” said Joe Pojman, the executive director of the Texas Alliance for Life. “Voters who are concerned about the life issue are not going to be deterred because of natural disasters or the economy.”
Joe Pojman, who heads the Texas Alliance for Life, said in an email that “abortion providers should not get special treatment that puts health care providers fighting Covid-19 and their patients at unnecessary risk.”
Getting an abortion, not easy in many states under ordinary circumstances, has become even harder in recent weeks.
But the clinics, and much of the medical community, say that abortion is time-sensitive and that it could be months before emergency measures are lifted.
“The bottom line is, these abortions must be delayed,” said Joe Pojman, executive director of Texas Alliance for Life, one of the state’s main anti-abortion groups. He said Texas was not “singling out any particular procedure or any segment of the health care industry.”
“Regardless of whether this law goes into effect, the unfortunate reality is that abortion will remain readily available in Texas and will occur tens of thousands of times every year,” said Joe Pojman, executive director of the anti-abortion group Texas Alliance for Life. “This law merely requires that the dignity of the unborn child is recognized after abortion and that their remains are not treated as medical waste.”
Joe Pojman, the executive director of the Texas Alliance for Life, which supports the Texas law, said in a statement that the state “should have the right to protect innocent unborn babies from dismemberment abortions, in which a doctor kills a child by tearing him or her into pieces.” The fact that courts have consistently ruled against bans on dilation-and-evacuation abortions, he argued, “shows how extremely out of touch the Supreme Court precedent is with modern science, which clearly tells us that an unborn child’’ is a living human being.
Joe Pojman, executive director of the anti-abortion group Texas Alliance for Life, commended Mr. Abbott’s legal team for “their effective defense of Texas law from challenges from the abortion industry.”
