Pro-Life Victory as Texas Legislature Passes Bill to Protect Unborn Babies when the Heartbeat Begins
Life News reports that the Texas state legislature passed a bill Thursday ban abortions once an unborn baby’s heart begins beating. After the House approved the pro-life measure earlier this month on a 83-64 vote, the Senate voted today 18-12 to pass it. The bill now goes to pro-life Governor Greg Abbott, who will sign it into law.
