Texas Debates Landmark Legislation, Addresses “Bizarre and Dangerous Defect” in Abortion Law
Statement from Live Action President Lila Rose:
Right now, in many cases across the country, it’s easier to be an abortionist than it is to run a daycare center. Governor Perry and the Texas legislature should be commended for taking a step toward rectifying this bizarre and dangerous defect that endangers the lives of both women and children.
As exposed by our Inhuman video series, so many abortion centers throughout our nation currently do not have emergency medical arrangements with local hospitals or other urgent care facilities. No matter where you stand on the issue of abortion, this sort of laxity and disregard for women’s health is outrageous and unacceptable.
Everyone should support putting necessary medical protections in place and enforcing top-quality standards of care for women and children.
Live Action is a youth-led movement dedicated to building a culture of life and ending the human rights abuse of abortion. The group uses new media to educate the public about the humanity of the preborn and investigative journalism to expose threats against the vulnerable and defenseless.
