Texas Senate Passes Pro-Life Bill Protecting Women, Saving Babies From Abortion

Micaiah Bilger

The Texas Senate has passed a pro-life bill to protect mothers and unborn babies by banning mail-order abortion drugs.

Sponsored by state Sen. Eddie Lucio, D-Brownsville, Senate Bill 4 would prohibit abortion groups from selling or providing abortion-inducing drugs by mail or other delivery services. It would require physicians to provide the abortion drugs in-person to the mother after performing an examination and obtaining her voluntary and informed consent.

The state Senate voted 19-3 in favor of the bill with bipartisan support. It now moves to the state House for consideration.

“It’s a life-saving piece of legislation that really should receive everyone’s support,” Lucio told Texas Alliance for Life this week. “I don’t see how we can not support the health of the woman by making sure she has professional medical help.”
