Over 5,000 Babies Saved From Abortion in August 2022, State Report Confirms

A new report reveals abortions in Texas plummeted in August 2022, showing 0 legal elective abortions committed and 3 medically necessary abortions legally performed to save the life of the mother. A year ago in the same month, there were 5,706 lives taken by elective abortion.

Texas law allows abortion when the life of a mother is jeopardized by her pregnancy:

“Medical emergency” means a life-threatening physical condition aggravated by, caused by, or arising from a pregnancy that, as certified by a physician, places the woman in danger of death or a serious risk of substantial impairment of a major bodily function unless an abortion is performed.

Advancements in medical technology have greatly reduced the situations where both mother and child are at risk, but in rare and heartbreaking circumstances, a woman’s pregnancy can endanger her life. The death of the child is an indirect result of a life-saving intervention for the mother. We mourn the loss of the three children who tragically could not be saved last year but are grateful the doctors rightly protected the mothers rather than losing both precious lives.
