Rep. Jessica Farrar has once again filed her bill which allows doctors to avoid telling a woman of the risks involved in having an abortion if a “severe and irreversible abnormality is detected.” We have all heard reports of these “detections” and many of them turn out to be false.
First of all, we think all unborn children should be protected. I can’t imagine, though, the tragedy for someone who chose to have an abortion and then the find out the child actually did not have such abnormalities.
This is HB 684: http://www.capitol.state.tx.us/BillLookup/Text.aspx?LegSess=81R&Bill=HB684.
We will vigorously oppose this bill, as we did last session. We’ll let you know if this bill starts to move.
