I don't support this bill. I believe a woman has the right to choose what to do what is best for herself. It's no ones business but hers and that it period.

Did any of ya'll read the link or Google the man? He is actually trying to overturn Roe vs Wade by changing the timeline the fetus is viable...and if it is not defeated according to the Google Doc. it goes into effect on September 1, 2011. If you are pro-choice I'd be calling your elected officials NOW to find out the actual status of this bill. Not a resident of Texas anymore but I feel this man, his ideas, and his supporters are dangerous to women.
The bill has 4 supporters....Wayne Christian (R) District 9
Linda Harper-Brown (R) District 105
Dan Flynn (R) District 2
William Zedler (R) District 96

This is the only thing out of Texas that I agree with ,and it's time that people in America start using birth control and the option of turning their's kids over to the foster care system instead of the bloody act of "abortion".....

These idiots worried about making abortion illegal when we can’t even provide an adequate education for our current population.

Don't need to legalize murder but if we don't know who the murderers are, how do we deal with them?

Feel free to leave the womb any time now, Twiz. It's safer out here and the air is fresh. But your insurance rates are going up. Unless, of course, we can abort that abomination some call Dear Leader.

Let the process work....

I believe this bill stalled in committee back in March. It never went anywhere. Old news.

IMO, the self proclaimed pro life people want to do away with birth control, too. As long as they keep their troops all stirred up about gay marriage, gays in the military and some abortion fight of the month, Dick Armey and his benefactors can do what they want.
The only reason I'll try to keep O in office is all we need is 1 more R on the court, and Roe v Wade is history, along with most forms of birth control.

If a fetus is a child, why are they not a tax deduction until they are born?

This goes for me as well.

If they do (but it won't happen) be prepared for the prisons to overflow 15-20 years from then, and being that it is Texas the death chambers will be on 24/7 (not to mention the lawsuits for wrongful death)

Please cite your figures and sources as to how many kids in Texas -- or anywhere else in the United States for that matter -- have "starved to death". Also, how much of your own money do you give to the "underpriviledged" children born which might have otherwise been aborted? Or is all you do is claim the moral high-ground for the fact that Texas places a relatively high priority on personal responsibility and does not reward irresponsible behavior in terms of social services?
