A pro-life leader from Texas contends that a court decision earlier this week underlines the need for more pro-life federal judges.

Federal District Judge Lee Yeakel issued a temporary injunction against a law banning dismemberment abortion, which was set to go into effect Friday.

Texas Alliance for Life Executive Director Joe Pojman is disappointed with the ruling.

“A state like Texas should have the right to protect unborn children from this absolutely gruesome method of abortion, which involves killing the baby by tearing him or her limb from limb,” Pojman argued.

Science has proven that the second-trimester preborn child is a living human being.

The injunction is temporary – until the outcome of a hearing before Judge Yaekel, which is slated for September 14.

“We are not optimistic that the court will allow this law to ever go into effect, but the attorney general of Texas is doing the best job possible,” Pojman expressed. “This basically highlights the need for more justices on the Supreme Court who respect the right to life of unborn children – and [who] will allow states to protect those unborn babies.”

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton will appeal to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

However, it should be noted that there are other pro-life laws do go into effect. One piece of them outlaws Planned Parenthood trafficking of aborted baby body parts, while another increases funding for pro-life pregnancy centers.

Defunding of abortion providers from Medicaid is now law, and another makes it a crime to abort the preborn child of a minor who is being victimized by trafficking.
