A Lone Star pro-lifer is glad that her state has taken action to protect women from chemical abortions.

Though chemical abortions have proven internationally to be dangerous, abortion providers in the states continue to push federal officials to make permanent a temporary rule that has allowed the life-ending drugs to be dispensed by mail. They also want to expand allowable use of the pill beyond the current limit of up to 10 weeks.

So Kimberlyn Schwartz of Texas Right to Life is pleased that her state recently passed a bill that tightens rather than weakens the regulations on abortion pills.

"We see this as an area of law that is going to continue to need attention," she tells American Family News. "We're seeing that the abortion industry is continuing to shift practices, and they are illegally mailing abortion-inducing drugs in Texas."

The postal service is an agency of the federal government, but Schwartz says Texas is fully prepared to enforce the state law.

"The government and government agencies can enforce penalties on those who violate the law, so you'll see a more traditional enforcement pattern with that law," the pro-lifer asserts.

The U.S. Supreme Court this week upheld Texas' new heartbeat bill that outlaws the abortion of babies after six weeks and allows the public to sue any violators.

Nationally, about 40% of all abortions are now done with chemicals.
