Abortion industry suffers another 'self-inflicted wound'

A legislative associate says a recent lawsuit dismissal should make abortion advocates aware that their legal efforts to undo Texas's pro-life laws could become costly.

Lawmakers in Texas have taken a number of measures to protect the lives of preborn babies and their mothers, but the one that has dealt with the most pushback is the heartbeat bill. It totally restricts abortion at the point a baby's heartbeat can be detected.

Rebecca Parma of Texas Right to Life tells AFN the abortion industry took the state to court.

"The Texas Heartbeat Act saw 16 lawsuits brought against it trying to block this life-saving bill," Parma tallies. "Ultimately, none of them have been successful. And in an interesting and exciting turn of events, one of those anti-life groups that filed suit against the Texas Heartbeat Act now actually has to pay pro-lifers' attorney's fees because of that lawsuit."

The North Texas Equal Access Fund, a regional abortion fund, will be responsible for that.

Parma says Texas Right to Life has received a lot of legal backlash for its staunch support of the bill.

"We saw 14 lawsuits filed against us trying to block us from ensuring the law was followed, and none of those were successful," the pro-lifer reports. "This is just another example of a self-inflicted wound by the abortion industry. They've had a rough summer, and this is just another example of how they are failing in Texas."

That failure, Parma adds, looks to be costly for the abortion cartel. And she asserts that any funds pro-lifers gain from that will be pumped into the pro-life cause.
