Texas flagTexas abortion providers are again attacking the state's strict abortion laws but a pro-life activist predicts the laws will withstand scrutiny.

Planned Parenthood is among four abortion providers that have filed suit in federal court challenging more than 60 Texas pro-life laws.

Joe Pojman of Texas Alliance for Life tells OneNewsNow the laws are common-sense measures intended to protect both women and pre-born babies, such as requiring that only doctors can perform abortions; parental consent for pre-teen girls; and health codes for sterilizing surgical tools.

The hearing was held before federal Judge Lee Yeakel, who has not been friendly towards restrictive abortion laws and is expected to rule against Texas on many of its laws.

"We expect that the attorney general of Texas will appeal the case to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans, which will give a very fair hearing and will uphold the constitutionality of all of our regulations," Pojman predicts.

That is likely, he adds, because the U.S. Supreme Court has already upheld many of them.
