'Heartbeat' abortion bill passes Texas House (ABC)

'Heartbeat' abortion bill passes Texas House (ABC)

Senate Bill 8, called The Texas Heartbeat Act, bans abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected, which is typically at six weeks gestation and before most women know they are pregnant. The bill does not make an exception for survivors of rape or incest who become pregnant as a result of the crime against them. It only allows an exception for a woman suffering a medical emergency.

The bill also allows anyone to sue a Texas doctor who performs or has an intent to perform an abortion and recover at least $10,000. The House amended the bill Wednesday to exclude rapists and people who commit incest against a woman from being able to sue doctors.

...


Key points:
No exception for rape or incest.
Will unleash a flood of lawsuits against doctors.
But at least rapists can't sue doctors (because someone noticed that possibility at the last minute).

Analysis:
The bastards!
