Texas senate bans late-term abortions

July 15, 2013

The Texas senate has voted 19-11 to ban abortion after the twentieth week of pregnancy, require abortion clinics to meet certain safety standards, and require abortionists to have admitting privileges at a local hospital. The Texas House had already approved the measure in a 96-49 vote, and Gov. Rick Perry is expected to sign it into law. The Texas Department of Public Safety stated it had confiscated “one jar suspected to contain urine, 18 jars suspected to contain feces, and three bottles suspected to contain paint” from pro-abortion protestors at the senate.
