Americans United For Life Applauds Life-Saving Law, Championed By The Texas House, Senate And Governor Rick Perry

"It is a national disgrace that 'house of horrors' clinics like Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell have been allowed to maim and kill women," said AUL's Dr. Charmaine Yoest. " Texas' common-sense regulation of Big Abortion has broad public support for good reason: Abortion providers should not be permitted to keep profits high by gutting the safety standards other facilities follow."

WASHINGTON, July 13, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Americans United for Life President and CEO, Dr. Charmaine Yoest, praised Texas Governor Rick Perry and members of the state House and Senate "for protecting the lives and health of women too often victimized in abortion clinics." She noted the heroic efforts of the Texas legislature and governor in going into a special session to consider legislation aimed at reining in an unmonitored, unregulated and unsupervised abortion industry, as well as legislation based on AUL-model legislation that would require life-ending drugs to be administered only by following FDA protocols.

Now awaiting Governor Perry's signature, the law would also limit abortions after 5 months of pregnancy, would require that abortions take place in facilities regulated like out-patient surgical facilities, and be performed only by physicians who have admitting privileges at local hospitals so that the best care possible would be given in a life-threatening emergency.

While the Texas proposal would limit abortions after 5 months of pregnancy, Gallup polling indicates that 71 percent of all Americans believe that abortion should be illegal beginning in the fourth month of pregnancy, and 86 percent of all Americans believe that abortion should be illegal beginning in the seventh month of pregnancy.

"What we are seeing in Texas is that the abortion lobby is out of touch with the American people who are asking their state legislators to do something about an unregulated, unmonitored, and unaccountable abortion industry," said Dr. Yoest.

She continued: "Texans asked for greater protections for women and girls, and their legislators responded. For too long, the abortion lobby has bullied the country through the courts, but a desire for common-sense regulation of abortion is being heard across the country ... and even in Washington, D.C."
