BREAKING: Texas Judge Halts Life-Saving Provision for Women
Promotes “Wild West” for Abortionists
Statement from Live Action President Lila Rose:
Yet another activist judge, this time in Texas, has unilaterally decided to bar an elected state legislature from enforcing life-saving provisions for women. This contempt for women’s safety among our judiciary has become a devastating trend.
Pro-life organizations and independent concerned citizens have documented ambulance after ambulance shipping injured mothers from abortion facilities to hospitals. This should be proof enough that these doctors are woefully unqualified to mend the horrors they regularly wreak on women. But furthermore, women across the country should ask themselves: “If my doctor can’t earn a hospital’s trust, do I really want him treating me?”
Inspections of abortion facilities regularly yield horrifying results: unsanitary, bloodstained tools, furniture, and surroundings, from California to Virginia to Delaware to Maryland, and on and on. And these are only the incidents we know about. Think of Kermit Gosnell, who went unprosecuted for over a decade because his state did not see fit to enforce the sort of commonsense and lifesaving provisions Texas now demands – and Houston abortionist Douglas Karpen, who continues to prey upon vulnerable women.
What offends the abortion industry about hospital admitting privileges is that they demand accountability from abortionists. Planned Parenthood prefers an abortion Wild West, where they can act with impunity and rake in extra cash by treating women like cattle in a “meat market.” It’s time for judges like Lee Yeakel to stop protecting the abortion industry’s bottom line and remember what really counts: the safety of mothers and their babies.
