Abbott signs HB1280, declares “the moment Roe v. Wade is overturned abortions will be outlawed in Texas”

Tuesday, Texas Governor Greg Abbott tweeted:

The most precious freedom of all is life itself.

Today I signed #HB1280. Under this law, the moment Roe v. Wade is overturned abortions will be outlawed in Texas.

Texas will always foster a culture of life.

During the signing ceremony, Abbott said “The most precious freedom of all is life itself. Our creator endowed us with the right to life. And yet, millions of children lose their lives every year before they were even born.”

Per NRO “The main provision of House Bill 1280 would be implemented 30 days after a repeal of the Roe decision or if a constitutional amendment were adopted to the U.S. Constitution allowing states to prohibit abortion, The Texas Tribune previously reported. The bill, once triggered, would deem abortion a criminal offense. It further stipulates that medical physicians who knowingly perform, induce, or attempt an abortion bear responsibility rather than the pregnant female.”
