Friday’s decision by the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade will make abortions illegal in Texas in 30 days. The Texas Legislature passed a “trigger law” in 2021 that makes performing abortions in Texas a felony 30 days after the Supreme Court overrules Roe v. Wade.

“The U.S. Supreme Court correctly overturned Roe v. Wade and reinstated the right of states to protect innocent, unborn children,” Texas Governor Greg Abbott said in a written statement following the SCOTUS decision on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. “Texas is a pro-life state, and we have taken significant action to protect the sanctity of life.”

One of those steps was the creation of a “trigger law,” House Bill 1280, that makes performing an abortion a felony beginning 30 days after the court’s decision. State Representative Giovanni Capriglione authored the bill and Governor Abbott signed it into law in June 2021.

The bill makes it a crime to perform, induce, or attempt abortion. The law provides exceptions for a life-threatening condition of the mother that could lead to her death or serious bodily injury. A violation of the law is a felony of the second degree. The death of the unborn during the abortion would increase the offense to a felony of the first degree. The person performing the abortion could also be subject to a civil penalty of up to $100,000 for each violation.

The law does not impose any penalty or fine on the pregnant female, the law states. Rep. Capriglione told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Best way to get rid of Democrats I can think of.
They can move back to CA and NY where they can kill all the babies they want.

Basically it is saying that a woman will need to have her abortion outside Texas. There is no charge on her so she can have it where it is legal. More expensive and time consuming but she can still have an abortion if need be,

I think this will encourage more consistent use of birth control, since an unwanted pregnancy will require a long and inconvenient bus ride to New Mexico. That’s a good thing.

It happens. Congrats on your new grandson.

But she would still have had options, as per the SCOTUS ruling. She could have taken a bus, or her husband could have driven her, to a neighboring state where abortion remains legal.

yes, that is what will be happening now. It will be like it used to be in Ireland when they came over to the UK. Still do from Northern Ireland.

Damn, just when the black population was decreasing.....Margaret Sanger is sad.
Margaret Sanger like the rest of her family were pro Black and pro-women activists looking to help black women escape proverty and abusive husbands via having fewer children to better allow them to escape such circumstances.

Good.

I don't say that out of political, or religious views. I say it because abortion is murder and last time I checked murder was illegal.

Adults that murder each other I don't give a shit. But I have a particular distaste for harming kids even in the womb because it's cowardly.

You can shoot children in schools, but you can't have an abortion....
