Lubbock Texas successfully outlawed abortion, and it has been the largest state to do so, according to The Daily Wire.
“Lubbock did not have a working abortion clinic in the city until April 15, when the Planned Parenthood Health Center began offering abortions.”
“However, the ordinance would not be enforceable through penalties’unless and until’ either of three things happens: The Supreme Court overrules Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, a state or federal court rules that it does not impose an undue burden on women seeking abortions, or a state or federal court rules the entity being penalized’lacks third party standing to assert the rights of women seeking abortions in court. ”
Kimberlyn Schwartz said, “This is a tremendous victory for the people of Lubbock and all of Texas! Outside pro-abortion groups spent over $150,000 to defeat the proposition, but the West Texas community stood firm in their Pro-Life values.”
“Lubbock’s move on Saturday will create a ripple effect all across Texas, encouraging more towns to become Sanctuary Cities for the Unborn and motivating politicians in the state Capitol to end abortion statewide.”
“The impetus for the ordinance was triggered by the announcement last August by Planned Parenthood that it intended to open a clinic in Lubbock, stating, “For the last three decades, a priority for Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas was to expand Planned Parenthood’s services in West Texas to increase access to affordable health care services such as breast and cervical cancer screenings, HIV tests, testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections (STIs), birth control including long-acting IUDs and implants, and safe, legal abortion services.”
State Sen. Charles Perry said, “Planned Parenthood, the country’s largest abortion provider, is hiring staff for a Lubbock location. Two years back, they made their plans known to re-enter West Texas and they have made good on that promise. We need to stand strong and send a clear message that the abortion industry should not set up shop in our garden. Unborn children should be able to live and Planned Parenthood profits off finishing their lives. This is unacceptable.”
