The numbers “are much smaller than what one would expect,” said Joe Pojman, the executive director of Texas Alliance for Life, in an interview with Politico, adding that the data “defies common sense.”
TAL has indicated its intention to push clinics to release more data on abortion patients, in hopes of finding something to back their currently empty arguments.

Pojman doesn’t expect Planned Parenthood to make headway in the Republican-dominated Texas Legislature, whose members have already vowed to propose new abortion restrictions next year.

“If they’re looking to gut any of our substantive informed-consent laws, including the sonogram laws, or prohibitions for funding for elective abortions or other protective measures that have been passed over the last 20 years, I would call this a publicity stunt,” he said of Planned Parenthood. “None of those attempts to repeal any of those laws would have any chance whatsoever.”


“The reason we don’t recommend that state legislatures pass complete bans on abortion at this time is the Supreme Court will very quickly strike them down and the states end up paying attorneys’ fees to Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers,” said Joe Pojman, executive director of the Texas Alliance for Life. “We have to wait until the time is right.”
