The pro-life Texas Alliance for Life (TAL) applauded the decision and Paxton’s “prompt actions” in defense of Abbott’s order.

“We are very pleased with the decision of the 5th Circuit to allow Governor Abbott’s order to stand as applicable to abortion facilities just as it stands for other medical facilities,” TAL executive director Joe Pojman, Ph.D. said in a statement provided to the Daily Caller News Foundation.

“How many doctors and nurses have to become infected and possibly die before Planned Parenthood, Whole Woman’s Health, and other abortion facilities in Texas realize that they need to comply with the executive order, just like everyone else?” he asked.

Joe Pojman, executive director of the Texas Alliance for Life, said he hopes the Legislature passes a bill making it a felony offense to abortion drugs to Texas. This would allow Texas to extradite and prosecute people from other states, Pojman said.

“Not having a doctor to follow up and administer these drugs is reckless,” he said. “Just because there’s a desire for a product on, it doesn’t mean that the government should allow it.”
