Texas Legislature Weighing 5 Key Proposals To Limit Abortions

    KUHF FM: There are five key bills that many are watching. Here is what they would do:
    Ban all abortions after 20 weeks (the “Preborn Pain Act”).
    Force abortion clinics to be licensed as “ambulatory surgery centers.”
    Require a doctor (not a nurse) to dispense the medical abortion pill RU-486.
    Require that doctors performing abortions have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital.
    Ban any health insurance plan, including those offered in the upcoming “exchanges” under the federal health law, from offering abortion coverage, unless purchased as separate coverage and paid for with a separate premium.

Judge Rules Texas Can Move Ahead With Measure Defunding Planned Parenthood | The News American

    The New American: Among the pro-life groups applauding the ruling was Alliance Defending Freedom, which is representing a former Texas Planned Parenthood clinic director, Abby Johnson, who has charged that the abortion giant is guilty of defrauding the Texas Women’s Health Program of more than $5.7 million. ADF said that the case against Planned Parenthood of Southeast Texas represents just a fraction of more than $100 million in waste, fraud, and abuse the conservative legal advocacy group exposed in a report it presented to the U.S. Congress last February. “Texans shouldn’t be forced to fund abortion industry giants like Planned Parenthood, so the court got this right,” said ADF Senior Counsel Mike Norton in response to the latest court ruling. “Texas law reserves taxpayer money for real healthcare for women and protects Texans from being financially coerced into abortion advocacy.” He added that women “deserve better than Big Abortion’s predatory business model and taxpayers deserve better than to be victims of Planned Parenthood’s waste and abuse of public dollars.”
