At 20 weeks of pregnancy the baby is most likely viable.

That means this is an infant that could live outside of the womb.
Science proves these babies feel hot and cold, pain and they will move toward the sound of their mothers voice.

This legislation in Texas is to prevent murder.

We can not as a people ever justify killing the most innocent in our society, and murder of the unborn is immoral as well as against the constitution.

I wish more states would follow the brave lead of Texas. If women have to travel several hundred miles to abort their baby, GOOD! Maybe that will make them think twice about ending the life of their baby.

From the article:

"Abortion-rights advocates argue the costs associated with converting clinics into surgical centers are so high they will force more than 35 clinics to close, possibly leaving only a handful of facilities across the vast state."

I do not see why this is a bad thing.

As county mom pointed out, abortion is essentially murder. Why is it a bad thing for murder clinics to close around the state? Should we promote murder clinics?

Recently the Deseret News reported of a couple that had severely abused a baby. To read the account was sickening. But, I can't see the difference between abusing or killing a three month old baby and killing a baby that hasn't been born yet. "Viability" is a convenient term to justify murder. The baby is alive (metabolizing) from the moment of conception on and to take its life is still killing it.
