A physician who was inspired to join the pro-life movement after he was called upon to save the life of a baby boy who briefly survived an abortion has now launched a document preparation service to help individuals prepare and file pro-life deed restrictions on their properties.
Dr. Ron Bryce, M.D., said that abortion became "deeply personal" to him after he had to treat an aborted baby boy twenty years ago.
"My little patient gave it a human face," he added.
According to his account, reproduced online at the Journal of Biblical Medical Ethics, in the 1980s in a county hospital in Fort Worth, Texas Dr. Bryce had to treat a child who briefly survived an abortion.
"Although strong enough to live awhile outside the womb, he was too young to continue to live after being separated from his mother. His lungs were not developed adequately to support his respiratory needs," Dr. Bryce said.
"There was nothing medical science could do to save him. Death was inevitable, but I was to care for him until that time."
Speaking in a Wednesday press release, he said it can be frustrating for regular citizens repulsed by abortion to "watch what's going on in Washington," so he "decided to create a service that would empower them to save babies' lives, one property at a time," he explained.
Bryce and his wife Lydia have founded Pro-Life Properties of Texas, LLC to help individuals prepare and file pro-life deed restrictions on their property.
The service is available to all property owners in Texas and allows them to restrict abortion-related activities on any property in perpetuity.
Bryce’s press release reported that individuals "can deed-restrict residences, stand-alone buildings, shopping centers or raw land.
"Many would be surprised to find out there are Texas abortion clinics in former residences, in former stores and offices right down the street from schools and churches and in shopping centers where you go to pick up a loaf of bread and a gallon of milk," Bryce said.
The service’s online process, which costs $77 per property, reportedly takes little time. The deed restriction is filed in the proper county within a month and a copy of the document is sent to the owner.
"Together we can make a lasting difference for our children and grandchildren," Bryce said.
