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.

    Yeeeah Texas and Gov. Abbott.

    Now, two things are going to happen; the abortion rate in Texas is going to dramatically decrease and there is going to be a migration of welfare recipients moving to other states.

  • CBUJAN says:

    We have to praise Texas, they are the most patriotic Americans of any state.

      I totally agree, but they also have a very fast growing muslim cult that needs to be dealt with!!

    I think this was a good idea for each state to get this done. The federal government is such a mess after Obama that Trump would need 3 or 4 terms to clean that cesspool. Why wait for the federal government anyways, the states have the rights and should enforce their right to do so. Protect the unborn from the butchers and the fallen women that use them.
    100 yrs from now we will all have met our maker and if you think those things happening today will get you a front row seat you are seriously fooling yourselves. How are you going to explain the events happening today? Do you think maybe he will balance them against the guidelines He provided us with many years ago?

    I didn’t know that the states needed to pass a ban since it’s been on the federal books forever. Federal tax dollars have never paid for elective abortions. That law goes back at least to 1970’s.

      federal tax dollars and state tax dollars are two different things.

      Wrong again Bob. 40% of PP funding comes from the fed, and they are the tops in abortions. Remember Margret Sanger!

      1. bobnstuff says:

        Only 5% of there business is abortions and onl one in three center even do them. They are very careful to keep the money separate. You do know Margret Singer is dead and things have changed since the 50’s.

          I’m going to get hurt someday, falling out of my chair, laughing at the lies you post. I’ve told you before. Put away your demonRat talking points.
