As abortion legislation nears Gov. Rick Perry's desk, opponents are now looking at ways to combat the measures once they are signed into law. Attorneys in the Texas House have opposing legal interpretations of House Bill 2, the abortion bill that passed in the Texas House today.
The Texas House has approved HB 2, the controversial abortion bill, on a vote of 98 to 49 without the addition of any amended changes.
The bill now heads to a Senate committee and a final vote on the bill is expected during the early part of next week.
The bill will ban abortion after 20 weeks and mandates that all clinics be upgraded to ambulatory surgical centers and have a doctor on staff that has admitting privileges at a hospital no more than 30 miles away. It also calls for doctors to follow all the FDA guideline for the drug RU-486.
