"Abortion providers have been complying with the laws being challenged in this case for years. They are common-sense measures necessary to protect Texas women from unhygienic, unqualified clinics that put women's lives and reproductive health at risk," Paxton spokesman Marc Rylander said.
"It is imperative that citizens have access to health-centered family planning services, and it is just as important that Title X health providers are protected from a government-directed violation of religious and moral convictions," Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said. "Abortion and family planning cannot be conflated without dismissing the sanctity of life. By scrapping the requirement that health providers must promote abortion as an option, President Trump has taken a large step toward preserving individual freedoms and the respect for human life, including unborn life."
