We just passed the halfway mark of the 140 term of the 85th session of the Texas Legislature, which as you know, only meets every other year. Our Priority Bills are moving in both chambers!
Take a look:
• Partial Birth Abortion Ban (SB 8 Schwertner, HB 200 Burkett)
Has passed in the Senate; Heard in House State Affairs
The bill seeks to end the illegal trafficking in baby body parts by enacting a state ban on partial birth abortion that can be enforced by Texas and bans the use of organs and tissue from elective abortions for research.
