Planned Parenthood reacted to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision not to block a new Texas law that bans abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected by claiming the Lone Star State is “forcing people to stay pregnant against their will.”
“SB-8 is a politically motivated and medically unnecessary abortion ban that will affect 85 percent of people seeking abortion in Texas,” said Xochitl Rodriguez, philanthropy officer of Planned Parenthood El Paso. She added that her clinic, which has provided abortions in the past, now will hire more navigation staff to help women and girls who are unaware of the new law but are seeking abortions after the time their unborn babies have a detectable heartbeat.
“So, we will have people on hand helping people understand what their legal rights are, options are, and of course providing information where folks can go,” Rodriguez said.
What the abortion mill Planned Parenthood won’t be doing is discouraging women from rejecting the left’s most deeply-held sacrament: infanticide.
