In a second special session showdown, Texas will again attempt to pass pro-life legislation.
HB 2 by Representative Jodie Laubenberg:
• Requires abortion facilities to meet the requirements of ambulatory surgical facilities
• Requires abortionists to have admitting privileges to a hospital within a 30-mile radius
• Prohibits abortions at 5 months (20 weeks) after fertilization and later, based on the medical fact that a baby can feel pain by this stage
• Requires the abortion-inducing drug, RU-486, to be used in compliance with FDA- approved standards
However- Planned Parenthood opposes any restrictions – and is raising money off keeping late term abortions legal in Texas
The 24 year-old black women was left to bleed to death on the table of Planned Parenthood after an abortion. That was in July of 2012.
