Texas court once again shuffled the deck last week for women in the state as it dealt with various decisions that have effectively left them in legal limbo. 

Amid the uncertainty, pro-life charities and abortion clinics have attempted to adapt while taking on markedly different levels of clients. The heartbeat law, which effectively serves as a six-week abortion ban, is expected to dramatically reduce the number of abortions in the state — leaving community organizations with a likely spike in crisis pregnancies.

Loveline, a Houston-based charity started by former Planned Parenthood director-turned-pro-life-advocate Abby Johnson, told Fox News it saw a 50% nationwide increase in calls in the month after Texas’ law was enacted on Sept. 1. Thirty-three percent of those came from Texas. 

Houston Pregnancy Help Center (HPHC) provided data on Thursday showing that it saw increases across multiple categories from September 2020 to the same month this year. For example, ultrasounds increased 50% (244 to 365). It also saw a 42% increase in client visits (1,026 to 1,466) and over 20% increases in pregnancy tests performed, in “abortion-minded” or “abortion-vulnerable” clients, and in women who chose not to have abortions. 

Houston Pregnancy Help Center Sylvia Johnson says the movement has work to do before it can fully respond to “post-Roe” challenges. 

First and foremost, she said the movement should focus on adoption education for minority women, as well as greater willingness to adopt their children. “These are women that have been targeted by the abortion industry … we have to somehow remove that stigma,” she said.

She added that the movement needed easier access to prenatal care, support for education through scholarships and infrastructure like child care.
