Texas permanently bans taxpayer funding of abortion
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed on Tuesday, a bill into law that will keep Texans from having to pay for elective abortions through their insurance plans and restrict state funding for abortion insurance.
"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.”
