That’s barely long enough for a person to realize they’ve missed their period, but unless the pregnancy is causing physical harm to the fetus or the person carrying it an abortion after that time is now illegal in Texas.
It was never about the kids though, because if it was the same governor who signed this bill into law and the same group of legislators who pushed for it wouldn’t have made a stance against making masks mandatory in schools. In fact, the same group of people who outlawed legal abortions in Texas after 6 weeks also said that schools and school districts that enforced mask mandates would lose state funding.
It was never about the kids, because if it was about the kids then state funding for WIC and SNAP benefits would be higher than they are. If it was about the kids then child support would kick in as soon as the heartbeat does. If it was about the kids then school lunches would be free and so would Neighborhood Centers so that they could go to daycare without causing a strain on their parents’ pockets.
It was never about the kids, because if it was Texas would have stricter gun laws and harsher punishments to deter folks from shooting up schools with assault rifles they shouldn’t have. There would also be WAY harsher punishments for those who harm children.
Let’s be very clear; this new law is about control. Old white men (and I’m saying that based on the picture below) want to control and regulate a body that’s not theirs.
It was never about the kids so stop using that bullshit excuse.
