New Proposed Texas Bill Could Make an Abortion Punishable by Death

A new proposed Texas bill calls for the possibility of the death penalty for those that have an abortion.

House Bill 896 would classify abortion as homicide, making women who abort pregnancies subject to the death penalty if prosecutors choose to pursue it. “A living human child, from the moment of fertilization on fusion of a human spermatozoon with the human ovum, is entitled to the same rights, powers, and privileges as are secured or granted by the laws of this state to any other human child,” the proposed legislation reads.

The new proposed bill will now need to be presented before the entire floor of the Texas House for debate.
