The Texas Baptist Christian Life Commission joined the Texas Alliance for Life, the Texans for Life Coalition and the Texas Catholic Conference of Bishops in supporting what proponents call “a thoughtful package of pro-life legislation” in the Texas House of Representatives.

The bills would ban partial-birth abortions and wrongful birth lawsuits, stop state and local governments from contracting with abortion providers, regulate how the remains of an aborted fetus may be treated, increase criminal penalties for forced abortions on human trafficking victims, improve reporting of abortion complications and reclassify ectopic pregnancies to ensure their treatment is not reported as abortion.
