Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed another pro-life bill — S.B. 4 — into law to help save babies from abortions. The bill bans chemical abortion drugs and would place limits on in-person sales of the abortion pill before 7 weeks to protect women’s health.

Life News reports:

The new pro-life law would also help support the Texas abortion ban by adding criminal penalties for anyone who sells the abortion pill illegally.

Under SB 4, the charges for “intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly,” violating the provisions of the bill would be a state jail felony, which carries fines of up to $10,000 and between 180 days and two years of imprisonment. And those could apply to anyone outside of Texas who sells abortion pills to Texas residents.

The bill, SB 4 authored by Sen. Eddie Lucio, Jr. (D-Brownsville), passed decisively on a 19-10 vote in the Texas Senate. 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.

Rep. Stephanie Klick (R-Ft. Worth) authored HB 6, the companion bill in the House, and talked about the need for the pro-life legislation.

“Safety protocols have existed since the Clinton administration at the federal level for women seeking to use abortion-inducing drugs, including an in-person visit with a doctor. As of April, the FDA is not enforcing this critical in-person doctor visit, which can help avoid serious complications or even death. This bill brings those safety protocols which have been effective for women for decades into Texas statute to ensure the doctor-patient relationship is intact and not at risk of being lost. This will save women’s lives,” said Kick.

Love this guy! Finally, someone who actually cares about saving babies and women instead of wishing death on them in the name of “women’s rights”. No one has the right to harm a baby in the womb. If you don’t want to get pregnant, buy birth control…that simple. Abortion may be legal, but it is not moral or right. We live in a death cult unfortunately.

Praise God. We must stop all abortions. It is murder in the 1st degree because it’s premeditated. if you don’t want a baby use protection or just obstain.

If abortion is legal why are there people in jail (murder) for killing the fetus in a PG woman due to physical abuse? This does not include a charge of a second murder when the woman is also killed. Start by an arrest and trial for murder of the doctor and the woman who was pregnant. There had to be a man involved so why is he not allowed to demand the woman have the baby even if she does not want it?
