Amy O’Donnell, communications director at Texas Alliance for Life, celebrated the victory after her organization spent months working to defeat the proposal.
“We are tremendously pleased to see that San Antonio voters have defeated Prop A so decisively,” O’Donnell said. “Prop A would have been tragic for unborn children and victims of trafficking who would have been left without the protection from abortion they deserve by San Antonio police.”
She said the ordinance would have required city police to ignore state laws that protect unborn babies’ lives and women’s health, fertility and safety from illegal and back alley abortions.
Texas law protects unborn babies by banning elective abortions and creates penalties for abortionists who violate the law.
