Texas: Pro-Lifers Welcome Possible Updates to Abortion Information Pamphlet

Texas may be updating a pamphlet that educates women who are considering abortion to better comply with the 2003 Woman’s Right to Know law.

 

OneNewsNow.com reports that the Texas law requires women to be informed before getting an abortion. This information may be updated to include a pamphlet for women to let them know that their unborn babies can feel pain.

 

Another section of the pamphlet will explain the links between abortion and miscarriage or certain types of cancer.

 

Emily Horne of Texas Right to Life praised the new information pamphlet: “They were actually really great to put that in the old booklet, and some of that is going to get updated. We are asking them to put the references to different studies, but the language about the link is in both additions, which I am proud of the Department of doing that 13 years ago, and they're keeping it in again." 

 

Another part of the updated requirements is that aborted babies must be either cremated or buried and cannot be treated as medical waste and dumped in sewers or landfills.

 

Both pro-life and pro-choice organizations are expectantly waiting to see the finished updates.
