The Texas Legislature has once again passed a life-affirming bill to protect human life.
Life News reports:
When he called the legislature into a special session, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott asked lawmakers to pass a bill to ban mail-order abortion drugs.
Earlier this month, the Texas Senate approved a bill to ban mail-order abortions and to put more limits on the abortion pill that is killing more and more babies in abortions every single year. Today, the Texas House followed suit.
The votes comes at a time when Texas could become the first state in America to ban abortions.
The bill, SB 4 authored by Sen. Eddie Lucio, Jr. (D-Brownsville), passed decisively on a 19-10 vote. Under the leadership of Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, this is the third time the Senate has passed this bill, including during the regular session last spring and during each of the two special sessions this summer.
After the bill’s passage, Susan B. Anthony List’s state policy director Sue Liebel told Life News, “The passage of vital safeguards on dangerous abortion drugs is a win for Texas women and unborn children. Chemical abortion poses at least four times the risk of potentially serious complications compared to surgical abortion – yet pro-abortion Democrats in Washington are recklessly pushing for a permanent rollback of FDA safety standards that keep them from turning pharmacies and post offices into abortion centers. We thank Governor Abbott, pro-life leaders in the Texas House and Senate, and all our local allies who’ve prioritized this bill. It reflects the will of the people and we look forward to seeing the governor sign it swiftly into law.”
