- The Trigger Ban on abortion (SB 2160 and HB 2350) is the top priorities for major pro-life organizations, including Texas Alliance for Life, the Texas Catholic Conference of Bishops, and Texans for Life.
- SB 2160 is authored by Sen. Angela Paxton (R-McKinney). The House version HB 2350 is authored by State Rep. Giovanni Capriglione (R-Southlake). This bill will restore protection to unborn children, beginning at fertilization, by banning abortion when and to the extent that the Supreme Court reverses Roe v. Wade. It will be triggered by that event.
- Five states have passed trigger bans: Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Dakota, and South Dakota. In addition to Texas, three other states are considering passing trigger bans: Missouri, Oklahoma, and Tennessee.
- The House Judiciary and Civil Justice Committee considered HB 2350 at a hearing on Monday, April 1. The testimony of Texas Alliance for Life’s Special Counsel Paul Linton is HERE.
