Texas state Republican lawmaker introduces bill to abolish abortion

Conservative lawmakers have long fought to either severely restrict or outright end the practice of abortion.

According to The Daily Wire, one Texas state Republican lawmaker might have just discovered the perfect way to go about it, thanks to language included in the Texas Constitution, and he already has a bill in the works that would completely abolish the practice of abortion within the Lone Star State’s borders. 

The bill, known as the “Abolition of Abortion through Equal Protection for All Unborn Children Act,” was recently introduced by State Rep. Bryan Slaton (R-TX), who claims that specific language in the Texas Constitution affords him the ability to propose such legislation.

Dialing in on a key phrase from the state’s founding document, which declares Texas a “free and independent state,” Slaton aims to protect “the sanctity of innocent human life created in the image of God, which should be equally protected from fertilization to natural death.”

The Republican state congressman wrote in the bill that if passed, it would “ensure the right to life and equal protection of the laws to all unborn children from the moment of fertilization.”

Perhaps the key piece of language that would virtually eliminate abortions in the state, with the exception of actual medical emergencies, is that the bill will “establish that a living human unborn child, from the moment of fertilization and at every stage of development, is entitled to the same rights, powers, and privileges as are secured or granted by the laws of this state to any other human person.”

All abortion licenses issued by the state would be rescinded, should the bill make it past several legislative hurdles and be passed.

Of course, one of the major hurdles is the fact that state Democrats in Texas have brought all legislative matters to a halt after they fled the state last week to kill an attempt to pass a Republican-led voter integrity law — a move that generated not only national headlines but also arrest warrants.

Slaton has been praised for his many attempts at passing similar pieces of legislation in his state. While he’s yet to secure the ultimate victory, it’s still critically important that state lawmakers like Slaton keep up the pressure.

Sad think we even have to have a converstion like this. Abortion is murder any way you look at it. Animals have more rights than humans do when it comes to things like this. Our elected officials disgust me as they are an embarrasement to the country. Decisions like this have no place in government or anywhere for that matter. Money for the greedy so called healthcare industry. People make huge somes of money with aborions. I hope you all rot in hell. America has sunk to an all new low and I fear that the rope is running short to help get her out.

The Arizona audit has proven that the democrats committed massive voter fraud and biden is an illegitimate president.

The AG and fbi have now committed voter fraud by aiding and abetting the treasonous criminal voter fraud democrats.

Good for Texas! I will never live to see that happen in CA unfortunately.It should be the law in all states.I would like to see more putting the baby up for adoption instead of killing and give those who can’t conceive a way to have a family.

G*d said, within one hour WHEN Roe vs Wade gets overturned ( and it does) by the Courts there will be a curse that gets lifted off America, and everyone will feel and notice the curse leave.
A curse was placed on America when Roe vs Wade went into effect January 1973 and has been on America every since.
