Abortion bill drawing mixed reviews
Anti abortion faction attempting to recover stronger state controls, say latest measure is watered down
By TRAVIS I POLING Corraspondant
A decision by the 70th Texas legislature during the 1987 regular session has brought optimism lo the anti-abortion, pro-life supports ii; New Braunfels and throughout Texas The bill, which has been passed into law, will prevent the abortion of a fetus after the third trimester of a pregnancy
Texas, which had strong anti abortion laws before the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision, will now begin to try and regain some of its lost legislation in dealing with abortion Some physicians and others, however, said they believe the bill is a step in the right direction, but it still is weak in comparison to the original legislation
Dr Steven Ousley of New Braunfels said that the bill is "watered down" and open to extremes of interpretation. Ousley is a local
The law is not nearly as significant as the fact that something passed "
Or Steven Ousley, President ConiaI County Pro Life Foundation
medical practitioner and president of the Comal County Christian Pro-Life Foundation
The foundation. Ousley said. will continue its efforts to see tougher abortion laws passed in the future. ‘ The law is not nearly as significant as the fact that something passed," he said.
Cmd) M the bch, a counselor at the Crisis Pregnancy Center of New Braunfels, said Blat although the center sees very few late term or third-trimester clients coming for help, workers hope the legislation will encourage more people to come to them seeking alternatives
Mihelich says that the passing of the bill indicates the pro-life movement is becoming more vocal Jeff Mihelich, a local pastor and a member of the center's board of directors, said the abortion alternative concept which they represent has received support through private donations,
The need (for alternatives) is recognized by citizens in this community when you have this much support." Jeff Mihelich said
The law as it stands now will have very little effect on New Braunfels medical institutions because few, if any, abortions are performed locally Most females who require abortions seek them in either San Antonio or Austin, Cindy Mihelich said.
Sue Cline, tile director of the Abortion Agency Reproductive Services in San Antonio,
said the bill will lur e very little effect on that serv ice because third-term abortions are not performed there. That is the case, she said, with most independent organizations outside of private practice or hospital emergencies
The breaking of this law by doctors will result in penalties or reprimand or non-renewal of their licenses Many Prolate proponents said they believe thin to be a slap on the wrist for something that they consider murder
Representative Edmund Kuempel, who supported the bill in the House, railed the law, * A step we had to take toward strengthening the abortion law s in Texas
Both Kuempel and many pro-life proponents
said Uhs is only the beginning to even more legislation in accordance with what they have been advocating for years.
