There has been no shortage of coverage concerning the Texas Heartbeat Act. But what the mainstream media won't tell you is that Texas isn't just interested in ending abortion, they are also committed to supporting mothers.
And they've budgeted $100 million to do just that!
LifeNews.com has this report:
In the spring, around the same time when [Texas] passed the heartbeat law, state lawmakers also budgeted $100 million specifically to help pregnant and parenting mothers and babies. The money goes to pregnancy centers, adoption agencies and maternity homes that provide free services — everything from temporary shelter to diapers and cribs to job skills training and more.
Texas lawmakers and pro-life advocates are committed to saving the lives of unborn babies, but they also want to help those children — and their mothers — build a bright and stable future. Here's more from LifeNews.com:
[A] well-known pro-abortion study called the Turnaway Study found that 96 percent of mothers who were denied abortions later no longer wished that they had had one. In other words, they were glad that they had their babies.
Still, pro-life advocates know that mothers and babies need support, sometimes just another person to encourage and support them emotionally, and often financial and material support.
Other organizations like CareNet, Loveline and Let Them Live also are prepared to help mothers in Texas who otherwise would have had abortions.
An unplanned pregnancy can be scary, but pro-lifers all across the United States are reaching out with compassion and hope, reassuring women that they are not alone, that they can be mothers and their babies need them, and pro-lifers are here to help.
Together we will remind this nation that every human life is sacred. We can support mothers and fathers, and children. Abortion destroys one life and irrevocably alters so many more. It's time for it to end.
