“The bill would require abortionists to check for an unborn baby’s heartbeat and prohibit the abortion if it is detected. It would create criminal penalties for abortionists who violate the measure and allow civil lawsuits by private individuals….”
(Michiah Bilger – LifeNews) Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is committed to signing the heartbeat bill once it reaches his desk.
On Thursday, the pro-life bill passed the state legislature after an 18-12 vote in the Texas Senate. Once signed into law, the Texas Heartbeat Act will abolish elective abortions as early as six weeks of pregnancy by prohibiting abortions once the unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable. The legislation is scheduled to go into effect Sept. 1.
In an interview Thursday with KXXV 25 News, Abbott said he supports the bill because he wants to make life better for every person in Texas, including children in the womb.
