Two more Texas abortion mills close March 6, 2014

Good news. HB2, while far from perfect, is working.  Two more Texas abortion mills have closed.  I have a feeling one more mill in the DFW area will have to close before too long.   The requirement that abortionists have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles is proving too difficult for many of these “doctors” (most of whom are abortionists due to past legal/substance abuse/other problems that basically removed their ability to practice respectable aspects of medicine) to obtain.  

Two more Texas abortions clinics are closing because of new restrictions placed on the facilities by the Republican-controlled Legislature.

Ten clinics have already closed because of a new law, which strictly limits where, when, how and from whom women can obtain abortions. [Well, if by “strictly limit,” you mean, “finally requires abortionists to meet minimal health and safety standards other surgical centers have long had to meet,” then OK]

Amy Hagstrom Mill owns the Whole Woman’s Health Clinic. She said Thursday that Republican lawmakers have made it impossible to keep her clinics open in Beaumont and McAllen.

The McAllen clinic is the last in the Rio Grande Valley in southern Texas, while the Beaumont clinic is the only one between Houston and the Louisiana border. [Awww, too bad, baby murder is not so convenient]

Abortion rights groups are challenging the law in court, arguing it has no medical basis. One of the law’s provisions requires doctors performing abortions to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital. [Given how frequently women require emergency medical assistance after botched abortions, this is a highly charitable, if absolutely minimal, requirement]

I know some folks who say that even laws like HB2 cannot really be supported, because they leave the grave evils of abortion and contraception in place.  Some feel the ONLY acceptable laws that can be fully supported are those that would make abortion and contraception completely illegal again.

Such would, of course, be wonderful, but they are wildly unreasonable in the present environment.  That doesn’t mean we can’t continue to note that these laws are faulty, that as much good as they accomplish, they still keep a barbaric, immoral act legal.  However, they are very significant steps in getting us where we want to be, which is a nation with zero abortions and no contraception use, and they measurably decrease the availability of baby-murder, at least.

And we should of course continue reminding all those opposed to abortion, including many Catholics and most all protestants, that so long as contraception remains legal and widespread, we’ll never be rid of legalized abortion.  Contraception is the foundation upon which abortion is built, and creates the very “need” for the vast majority of abortions, in the first place, as our very own Supreme Court has recognized. 

I pray this law is not overturned, it is doing a great deal of good. We pray outside mills regularly, and we know women are keeping their children because abortion is not so readily available as it was just a few months ago. 

Thanks to reader SB for the hat tip!

Whole Women’s Health is one of the largest of the four abortuaries here in Austin.
They are a truly sick and evil place, of course right in a minority neighborhood (Hint… not because of the low rent).

Good news for certain. I wonder how long it will take the U.S. Supreme Court to get involved and reverse the great progress being made in my fair state. Furthermore, I wonder if the people of Texas will allow our federal overlords to dictate to us once again how we should behave in our sovereign country, that is, the sovereign country of Texas.
