The pro-life accomplishments under the leadership of Speaker Straus continued to be nothing less than astounding in 2013. During the regular session the House
passed SB 1, with numerous pro-life provisions, and SB 67 to require

SB 5 and HB 2 during the special sessions to ban abortions after five months and vastly increase safety regulations for abortion facilities.
