Other groups, like Texas Alliance for Life, are cautiously optimistic about the contents of the draft.
“It is our hope that when the final decision is released…it reflects the same opinion that we’re seeing now,” said Amy O’Donnell, communications director for the organization. “But we do recognize that drafts circulate and opinions change.”
Texas abortion laws are already among the strictest in the country.
Texas Alliance for Life has lobbied for tougher regulations, including the House Bill 1280, a so-called “trigger law” which hinges on the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade.
“30 days after the judgment is rendered, then abortion is completely outlawed in Texas, and life is protected from conception to birth,” O’Donnell said.
Texas also passed the Heartbeat Law, which went into effect last year.
It outlaws abortions after a heartbeat is detected, which is usually about six weeks.
