“For decades, Texas has allowed abortion centers to specialize in late-term abortions targeting our African American and Hispanic communities. This signature curbs the genocide but there is still much to be done,” stated Fr. Victor Salomon, director of Hispanic Outreach for Priests for Life.
“Hispanics for Life applauds the decision by Texan legislators to limit abortions. We hope it is a step toward the day when all unborn human beings are protected and women are spared the exploitation by the abortion industry,” affirmed Astrid Bennett Gutierrez, President of Hispanics for Life.
Kristina Garza, director of Campus Outreach for Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust, issued the following statement: “The 20-week abortion ban is common sense legislation. Not only have women, especially minority women, been preyed upon by unscrupulous abortionists who have operated with no oversight whatsoever, but their babies have been mercilessly tortured to death for far too long. Finally, Texas has taken the first step in protecting women and babies. I hope that Texas becomes the example for the rest of the nation and that we will all encourage our pro-life legislators to act with the same courage that Governor Perry and the Texas legislature has.”
