A state pro-life group applauded the Senate for advancing the pro-life measure.
“We strongly support the chemical abortion safety protocols in SB 4, and we applaud the Lt. Governor Dan Patrick and the members of the Senate who supported it,” said Texas Alliance for Life’s executive director Joe Pojman, Ph.D. “Texas needs this bill to assure that chemical abortions are performed under the supervision of a physician and with adequate safety protocols.”
Pojman told LifeNews.com that not only do abortion pills end the lives of unborn babies but they also hurt women, as dozens of women have died and thousands have been injured.
He said the need for this bill is demonstrated by the fact that chemical abortions result a 20% complication rate for women, four-time higher than surgical abortions, according to a highly credible study published by the ACOG. Complications include incomplete abortion resulting in baby body parts or placenta remaining in the uterus, future miscarriage and stillbirth from unmanaged Rh factor, and hemorrhaging and death from undiagnosed ectopic pregnancy.
Pojman added that the number of babies losing their lives to the abortion drug is on the rise.
