Even if the February draft is legitimate, it is not the final word. A decision by the Court is expected in late June.
If the Court does overturn Roe, a law passed by the Texas Legislature and signed by Gov. Greg Abbott in 2021 to protect unborn babies would go into effect a few weeks later. That law, HB 1280 by Rep. Giovanni Capriglione (R-Southlake) and Senator Angela Paxton (R-McKinney), is known as the Human Life Protection Act.
