9200 fewer abortions occurred last year in Texas because of new abortion restrictions and clinic closures. Pro-lifers are celebrating this initial result. The number of unwanted children will increase as additional restrictions kick in. After having worked for the welfare department and as a public school teacher for a combined 32 years, I hope those doing the celebrating are prepared to increase the level of support for financial and social services that many of these children will desperately need. I especially hope that they are not blocking sex education and use of contraception for teens. The "just say no" approach is no more effective than the new law outlawing male masturbation (spilling seed) will be.
