Million of unborn babies will live and experience the joys of life, if passed! Who could be against that "choice"?

The same state has no problem executing them once they're born.

Regarding the death penalty: Again, it is all about "choice."

Republicans, who believe we have an entitlement problem, and don't want to take care of those millions of babies once outside the mother. Funny how you only fight for the unborn.

Hutterite, they also have the highest wrongful wrongfully convicted rate for state sanctioned murder, thanks to "Innocence Project."

@ Hutterite. You don't see the difference between an innocent unborn baby and a criminal, really? I actually feel sorry for you.

@ Happy Valley. Who is to say that most unborn babies would actually be productive citizens and taxpayers? You think they will all be on welfare? How dim your view of humanity is!

Even the huffington post poll shows that a large majority support this bill......good for Texas! Time to ban federal funding for all abortion clinics.....

Try using your moniker once in a while. There are NO federal funded abortion clinics.

Mnt man you come on here daily to present your opinion that the majority of American are on some kind of entitlement they are not deserving of, or the majority who voted for Obama did so for the freebies. So please don't suddenly turn hypocritical about your belief in America being a welfare nation.

Federal funding for abortion is already banned by law... unless you mean to also prohibit money from going to other services provided by facilities that also provide abortions, in which case you're just spitefully going after peoples' healthcare.

If you really cared about reducing abortions you'd support universal coverage of birth control (like the nation with the lowest abortion rate in the world, Belgium), but you don't, so you support failed tactics since the nations with the lowest abortion rates are not actually the ones where it's illegal (since most of those women will just do desperate things, like that girl in Utah who paid a guy to beat her up to try and induce a miscarriage).

Salt Lake City, Utah

One of those who voted in favor of this legislation also voted to deny funding for prenatal care on the grounds that the unborn are not people deserving of protection or funding.

So, women shouldn't have access to abortion but they also should not be provided the resources to ensure a healthy baby.

Texas is #3 in teenage pregnancies now. I guess they won't be happy until they're #1.

If you can't make a decision about aborting within 4 to 5 months, then you are not capable of making life and death decisions anyways.
