“Our goal is that no woman will choose to seek abortions,” says Joe Pojman, executive director of Texas Alliance for Life, who helped draft the current law. “We realize that vision is not going to be reality in the foreseeable future. In the meantime, we want to ensure women have all the information they have to make an informed decision.”
Many elected officials and media outlets speculate that texas tough abortion restrictions will soon spread to other states after the recent Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals decision upholding HB 2.
“The Supreme Court allows states to regulate abortion to ensure women have all the information they need to make an informed decision and to make sure it’s done in a safe manner,” Joe Pojman, executive director of Texas Alliance for Life, said outside the courtroom after the hearing. “That’s all this law does.”
