Byron Cook Gives Hearing to HB 439

On April 19, 2017, Texas State Rep. Byron Cook, Chairman of the House State Affairs Committee, gave a hearig to House Bill 439.

HB 439 is authored by Democrat State Rep. Nicole Collier.

HB 439 would allow for withholding life-sustaining or lifesaving treatments from a pregnant woman with consent by her or, if unable, her family.

This would result in the death of the unborn child, regardless of how healthy or how far along in development the baby is.

Rep. Cook (a Republican) gave this bill a hearing while denying a hearing to other bills like HB948 – the Abolition of Abortion in Texas act, which was seeking to carry out the legislative priority from the Republican Party of Texas.
