Two important Texas bills currently in process:
C.S.H.B. 2816 amends the Health and Safety Code to require a physician performing or inducing an abortion, on the date the abortion is performed, to have active admitting privileges at a hospital that is located not more than 30 miles from the location at which the abortion is performed or induced and that provides obstetrical or gynecological health care services.
After a public hearing last week, HB 2816 is pending in the House State Affairs Committee.
The bill establishes a compelling state interest in protecting the lives of babies who feel pain, and therefore, prohibits elective abortions at twenty weeks post-fertilization.
The Texas Preborn Pain Bill was left pending in the House State Affairs Committee, which is expected to vote on this vital Pro-Life legislation next week.
The Pregnancy Help Center opened its doors in July 1986, It was founded by a group of concerned citizens in the Fort Worth community who saw a need to provide information and counsel to women experiencing unplanned pregnancies. Today, the PHC ministers to the whole woman, her children and her family. Through our various programs, PHC endeavors to meet the physical, social, emotional and spiritual needs of the women in our community.
