It is only one step in the judicial process, but it is bad news for pro-life advocates, one leader of that group in the US Congress is speaking out against it. U.S. Representative Kevin Brady (R-TX), leader of a key health care panel in Congress, issued the following statement regarding a federal judge’s ruling against provisions of Texas’ new abortion law.
“I’m disappointed in the court’s ruling because Texas carefully crafted a law that protects the life and health of both the mother and the unborn. Both are important.
“In light of the horrifying loss of lives from convicted Philadelphia physician Dr. Kermit Gosnell, it’s reasonable to require doctors to be able to admit their patients to a nearby hospital when complications arise during such a serious surgery.
“I’m confident the ruling will ultimately be overturned.”
