What does it say about the state of abortion mills in Texas that new basic safety standards to protect women shut them down?
Life News reports that the Planned Parenthood in Waco, responsible for killing close to 19,000 unborn babies, recently shut down. Last week, a federal appeals court ruled in favor of tougher abortion clinic standards, and KCEN TV reports that the decision “forced all but seven abortion clinics in Texas to close their doors.”
John Pisciotta, Director of Pro-Life Waco, told Life News the clinic stopped doing abortions in August 2013. Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas gave up its licence for abortions in Waco because the facility didn’t have an abortionist on staff.
Naturally, abortion advocates will continue the fight to eradicate life in the womb. Planned Parenthood’s Natalie Kelinske told KCEN TV that through the Patient Assistance Fund, the organization “can help those patients who may need; travel costs assistance, lodging assistance.”
Although the new standards were put in place to prevent the death the mother — along with the baby — abortion advocates don’t see it that way. From their perspective, it’s a sneaky attempt to “limit a woman’s access to abortion.”
