BREAKING: Abbott signs bill outlawing abortions if Roe v. Wade is overturned

According to a new report from The Hill “Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) on Wednesday signed a bill into law that would ban abortions in the state if the U.S. Supreme Court overturns the landmark Roe v. Wade decision, which federally granted women throughout the U.S. the right to an abortion.”

“The legislation, known as House Bill 1280, would take effect if the Supreme Court “wholly or partly” overruled Roe v. Wade or if a constitutional amendment allowed states to prohibit abortions,” the report adds.

The bill would almost immediately outlaw abortions in Texas if a court ruling or constitutional amendment gave states the authority to prohibit the procedure

The Pro-life org Susan B. Anthony list tweeted:

Thank you Governor Abbott for leading the way on LIFE!
