Deadline for HB 3326 to be voted out of committee[wpcdt-countdown id=”2717″]
Get to know the bill
HB 3326 would abolish abortion in the state of Texas by providing equal protection to all unborn Texans beginning at fertilization.
In his official statement, Representative Slaton said
“As the Declaration of Independence makes clear, governments are instituted primarily to secure God-given rights, the principal among them being the right to life. The right to life is the first among all natural rights, and must be protected to the utmost. Any law, rule, or court decision that is opposed to this self-evident truth is not only unconstitutional but contrary to natural law and must be rejected.”
More than 55,000 babies are murdered by abortion in our state every year, making abortion a leading cause of death in our state. Thousands of innocent lives are ended unjustly every year without being provided the legal protection enjoyed by every born person in Texas.
Current Texas law already defines a person to include, “an unborn child at every stage of gestation from fertilization until birth.” Penal Code (PC) § 1.07(a)(26) and (38).
PC § 19.06 exists because Texas has surrendered to an unconstitutional federal court ruling that is not binding on this state. HB 3326 simply repeals the exception for abortion in PC § 19.06, giving unborn persons in Texas the same legal protection as any born person.
Roe v. Wade and its judicial progeny are unconstitutional, immoral court decisions where the court claims that there is a right to abortion contained within the Constitution despite no such evidence.
Furthermore, the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution provides, “No state shall… deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”
If we truly believe that a fetus is a person, then the laws which protect born human beings must equally protect those not yet born. Those who oppose equal protection either do not believe that a fetus is a person or do not want to follow the Constitution.
