Ted Deutch upset abortions are still banned in Texas

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) is opening up for business and that means that the healthcare industry will get back to conducting those “non-essential” medical procedures except for abortions. After pro-Choice groups sued to have the ban on abortions lifted and won, the Fifth Circuit Court has ruled that the abortion ban in the Lonestar state must be put back in place.

This decision to continue to ban abortions has Florida Rep.Ted Deutch (D) hot under the collar, as the veteran legislator sees this move by Abbott as being nothing more than the exploitation of “a pandemic to restrict women’s Constitutionally-protected rights.”

 “Even after other medical procedures resume in TX, abortions remain banned,” stated Rep. Deutch “This was never about anything other than using a pandemic to restrict women’s Constitutionally-protected rights.”

According to a CBS News report, acting president of Planned Parenthood, Alexis McGill Johnson, believes that abortions or “time-sensitive health care” should not be restricted by the spread of the COVID-19 virus or any other pandemic.

Johnson also contends that Americans seeking these “time-sensitive” medical procedures are “being forced to risk their health by traveling hundreds of miles out of state to get care.”
