New Pro-Life Law Already Providing Results — Two More Texas Abortion Mills Have Shut Down
Huffington Post is in quite a snit over the continued success of the law Texas Senator Wendy Davis failed to stop with her mob rule/filibuster combination. Abortion clinic after abortion clinic is shutting down because of it:
Two abortion clinics on Thursday join the growing list of Texas providers shutting down because of restrictions passed by the state legislature last summer, the clinics’ owner said.
Whole Women’s Health, which operates five abortion clinics and one ambulatory surgical center in Texas, will close its rural clinics in Beaumont and McAllen, Amy Hagstrom Miller, CEO of Whole Women’s Health, told HuffPost. The McAllen clinic was the last center serving women in the Rio Grande Valley, and the Beaumont clinic was the only abortion provider between Houston and Louisiana.
In a small town, it’s “next to impossible” to comply with the new law, which requires that abortion providers have admitting privileges at a local hospital, and that all abortions take place in ambulatory surgical centers, Miller said in an interview.
“The majority of the rural providers in Texas are now closed,” Miller said. “I’m stubborn or stupid to have kept mine open this long, but I can’t keep my doors open when I can’t see any patients.”
The anti-abortion law signed by Gov. Rick Perry (R) last summer, known as HB 2, also bans abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy and restricts how doctors can administer abortions with medication. Republican supporters of the bill said it was intended to protect women’s health.
According to Huffington Post, the number of abortion clinics in the state has gone from 44 in 2011 to 20 this year. Here’s hoping the law continues to do great work to help the unborn, their mothers and fathers, and society in general avoid murder of the most innocent of lives.
