There have been 10,000 fewer abortions in Texas thanks to the pro-life law passed there last election. Those politicians who use pro-abortion laws as a population control method (really, are there such animals?) have to take a step back. 10,000 more smiling faces are the happy victors along with their parents and other relatives. This is a true victory for Life as God intended it.
One Austin abortion facility’s building is advertised as up for lease. It is a very good sign of the times.
Now, a new study published yesterday by the Texas Policy Evaluation Project shows that abortion numbers have dramatically declined by 13% since a new Texas abortion law, known as HB2, went into effect last year. That decline represents approximately 9,200 lives spared due to the new law.
Out of the 41 abortion clinics in operation last July, already half have shut down as a result of provisions of the law that went into effect last year, especially the provision heavily supported by Operation Rescue that requires abortionists to maintain hospital privileges within 30 miles of their abortion clinics.
Only six facilities are expected to remain open in Texas after the remainder of HB2′s safety regulations go into effect on September 1.
This means that 35 Texas abortion facilities were operating well below acceptable medical standards and are opting to close rather than comply with the law.
“When abortion clinics close, lives are saved as women find other ways to deal with the challenges they face rather than taking the lives of their babies,” said Newman. “We expect to see abortion numbers continue to steeply decline in Texas as more abortion facilities shut down, and that is great news.”

The rest of the nation should take note and be thankful that the senseless termination of life has been curbed in Texas thanks to those who want helpless babies to live. This came as a result of legal process, not terror. Let’s work together to produce similar results in other areas that affect our western culture. Devil — take a step back. United Christians are still here!
