Texas Senate Passes Born Alive Infant Protection Act
Today the Texas Senate passed on final reading SB23 the Born Alive Infant Protection Act with a bipartisan vote of 21-10. Sens. Lucio and Zaffirini, both Democrats, supported the legislation.
Nicole Hudgens, Senior Policy Analyst for Texas Values Action said “Babies who survive abortions in Texas deserve protections and care- just like every other Texan. We thank Senator Kolkhorst for authoring and defending the common-sense bill and we thank the Texas Senate for supporting it. We look forward to the bill’s swift passage in the House and signature from Governor Abbott.”
