AUSTIN, Texas, August 15, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed today a bill to restrict state funding for abortion insurance.
The new law will keep Texans from having to pay for elective abortions through their insurance plans.
“As a firm believer in Texas values I am proud to sign legislation that ensures no Texan is ever required to pay for a procedure that ends the life of an unborn child,” Gov. Abbott said. “This bill prohibits insurance providers from forcing Texas policy holders to subsidize elective abortions. I am grateful to the Texas legislature for getting this bill to my desk, and working to protect innocent life this special session.”
HB-214, which the House passed last week and the Senate approved Sunday, applies to “elective” abortions and specifically includes an exemption for cases of medical emergency to save the mother’s life.
