(Worthy News) – Abortions in Texas declined by 60% in the first month after a law restricting the procedure went into effect, according to data released by the state’s Health and Human Services.
Roughly 2,200 abortions were reported by providers in the state in September 2021. The number is substantially less than the over 5,400 abortions that were conducted in August.
Under SB 8, abortions are prohibited after a fetal heartbeat is detected, usually around six weeks, and there are no exceptions for rape or incest. The Texas law allows individuals to bring a civil action against anyone who performs an abortion. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More…) ]
