Texas passed a near-total ban on abortions after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.
Abortions are only allowed in Texas if the pregnant patient risks death or “substantial impairment of major bodily function.”
That’s why Pro-Lifers were furious at Ann Coulter for using this lie to justify abortions in Texas.
Dallas, Texas, resident Kate Cox recently became the first woman to ask a court to authorize an abortion since before the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision.
On December 5, Cox’s attorneys requested an emergency hearing in the Travis County District Court seeking medical permission for an abortion under Texas’ exemptions.
“She had been admitted to emergency rooms three times within a month for symptoms including cramping and fluid leaks,” Austin American-Statesman reported. “Her doctors advised her that due to her fetus’ trisomy 18 diagnosis, the unborn baby had ‘virtually no chance of surviving’ and continuing the pregnancy presented serious threats to her life and fertility.”
But this is just a lie parroted by the abortion industry to justify killing unborn babies.
Unfortunately, conservative commentator Ann Coulter fell for the lie and lashed out at the Pro-Life community over its opposition to Cox’s abortion.
Coulter shared an article from the left-wing media about the Texas case and ripped Pro-Lifers as cruel.
“The prolife movement has gone from compassion for the child to cruelty to the mother (and child),” Coulter wrote on X. “Trisomy 18 is not a condition that is compatible with life.”

Coulter is wrong about Trisomy 18 being a guaranteed death sentence.
LifeNews responded to Coulter and set the record straight by pointing out that “this is 100% FALSE.”
“Compassion is caring for both mother and child, not killing the baby just because the baby is/may be disabled,” LifeNews wrote. “Trisomy 18 **MIGHT** be incompatible with life. But might not be….”
“Your view would condemn this little girl to death,” LifeNews told Coulter.

LifeNews was talking about Amber-Rose, who was born with Trisomy 18 after her mother refused to have an abortion.
“The NHS says about 13% of babies with Edwards’ syndrome who are born alive live past their first birthday,” the BBC reported. “Amber-Rose, now aged five, is one of them.”
And Amber-Rose is not the only child to survive Trisomy 18.
According to Dr. Glenn Green, an ENT at the University of Michigan Mott Children’s Hospital and one of the world’s leading experts on treating the condition, 90% of his patients born with Trisomy 18 survive.
The only reason many children with the condition don’t survive is because doctors don’t go above and beyond to care for them like Dr. Green does with his patients.
Prenatal testing is often wrong and should never be used as justification for an abortion.
Every innocent unborn baby is precious and deserves a chance at life.
