Yesterday, the Texas State Senate was poised to pass HB2/SB1, a bill which will save thousands of children from gruesome late-term dismemberment abortion. It will also hold abortion facilities to the same standard as any other surgical center, and require abortionists to have admitting privileges at a hospital no farther than 30 miles away. They succeeded in doing so, along mostly party lines, 19-11.
Planned Parenthood, NARAL, and other abortion backers have complained that the law will force abortion centers to close, but that’s not true – only the ones that refuse to meet the new, superior medical safety standards will close. And well they should.
The bill bans abortions after 20 weeks and hold abortion clinics accountable by making them meet basic health and safety standards that have closed facilities in other states that are unable to comply. The bill also requires all abortion clinics to meet the same health and safety regulations as an ambulatory surgical center, requires a doctor providing abortions to secure admitting privileges at a nearby hospital, and lastly, requires a doctor to personally administer any abortion-inducing drugs to the patient.
Before the vote, Texas police issued a statement confirming they confiscated numerous jars of feces and urine that pro-abortion activists planned to throw at pro-life legislators today who are debating the late-term abortion ban.
From Students for Life:
“While you prayed with Texas pro-lifers today, the pro-aborts brought bricks to throw at lawmakers, jars of urine, feces, a semi-automatic firearm, and packets of pads and tampons to throw at pro-lifers [ESH emphasis]. That’s just gross… but it shows the depths they were willing to go. They knew they were going to lose this fight tonight, and so they literally resorted to flinging fecal matter to prevent babies from being saved and women protected.
“Why? Because they saw this fight in Texas for what it really is, the beginning of the end of legal abortion in America.
“And now in the midst of our victory, Planned Parenthood has lost control of their mob. They are threatening riots.”
That tells you all you need to know about how concerned abortoholics like Klan Parenthood–the largest domestic terrorist organization– and their rent-a-mob have been behaving in states like TX, WI and OH. They are like a cornered wild beast lashing out at anything near them, even those that would help save its life or, in the case of die-hard baby killers, their soul.
