Governor Abbott Announces LIFE Initiative In Response To Planned Parenthood Videos

AUSTIN -- In response to the release of gruesome videos filmed at Planned Parenthood facilities, including Gulf Coast in Texas, Governor Greg Abbott today announced initiatives to provide greater protections for children in the womb and prevent the sale of baby body parts.

“Gruesome -- and potentially illegal -- harvesting of baby body parts by Planned Parenthood cannot be allowed in Texas,” said Governor Abbott. “Treating unborn children as commodities to be sold is an abomination. The barbaric practice of harvesting and selling baby body parts must end.”

Governor Abbott announced the following proposals that will be tenets of the LIFE Initiative, some of which will be implemented now, others that will require changes to the law:

Laws must be changed to (1) make it a felony under Texas law to perform a partial-birth abortion; and (2) make it illegal for abortion doctors to risk a woman’s health by altering the procedure to preserve fetal body parts.

Improve and expand the availability of adoption services; and increase awareness about Texas’ already best-in-the-nation child-support enforcement program, so that young mothers considering how to deal with pregnancy know the father will be held accountable to support his family.

Funding for Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers out of taxpayer money must be eliminated completely, both at the State and local levels.

Eliminate and criminalize any sale or transaction of fetal tissue by an abortion clinic for any purpose whatsoever.

There are several investigations ongoing at a swift pace. The information revealed in those investigations will yield additional information that could further shape Governor Abbott’s LIFE Initiative.

The grand jury was called upon to investigate allegations of criminal conduct by Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast and they were cleared in the two-month-long investigation. Sounds to me like they were cleared. More ›

Planned Parenthood doctors and nurses conduct breast exams and refer patients to other facilities for mammograms.

SayWhat??? PP was not cleared of anything. They just to ignore selling baby parts and went for the buy who used a fake drivers license. Which do you think is worse? This is not the last you will hear about this one!

Now that Planned Parenthood has been cleared of those controversial videos, we will see if anyone apologizes to them. I doubt anyone will apologize. People prefer to propagate lies if the truth does not fit their stories.... More ›

Boob: I got a better idea for you to wish for, how about Abbott protects Floresville from those who would like Mr Miller removed. Now that would be worth my tax dollars. Just saying

New Guy. What do you want him to apologize for? At least making an attempt to protect the lives of the unborn creations of God? Or perhaps he should apologize for the secular courts and people like yourself who do everything... More ›
