A Victory for LIFE: Texas Governor Passes Bill Banning Tax-Payer Funded Abortion
Earlier today, Texas Governor Greg Abbott successfully passed a new law that would limit insurance coverage for abortions, just one of many steps towards the goal of ending government-approved genocide.
Under House Bill 214, Texans will no longer be forced to pay for elective abortions through their insurance plans and specifically includes an exemption for cases of medical emergency in which the life of the mother is threatened.
Smithee's argument is backed up by a 2000 study, which revealed that of the 30% of women that chose to have abortions after being raped, 78% regretted the decision.
In a further demonstration of the left's disconnect from reality, Democratic Senator Sylvia Garcia fought for exemptions to the bill during the House debate by similarly citing the “rape insurance” line. Her exemptions were defeated in a 20-10 party line vote.
While HB-214 is a step in the right direction, there's plenty more work to be done. Republican Senator Brandon Creighton previously authored pro-life bill SB-25, which eliminates “Wrongful Birth” lawsuits.
So long as innocent lives hang in the balance, the fight continues.
Stay alert. Stay alive.
