Texas Republicans Now Want to Criminalize Abortion After Six Weeks
On Thursday, three Texas Republicans filed a measure that would criminalize abortion services after a fetal heartbeat can be detected — which typically occurs around six weeks of pregnancy, before many women even know they’re pregnant.
The Texas legislature is currently in the midst of a special session that was convened specifically to give lawmakers more time to consider abortion restrictions. The session will end on July 31. Until then, GOP lawmakers have been busy proposing a slew of anti-abortion bills in the hopes of being able to rush them through.
At this point in time it should be clear to all that the theocracts that are now in charge of the GOP are no longer afraid to hide their agenda. As George Carlin once said, “the Christians are coming, and they are not friendly people.”
