10,000 Unborn Babies Saved Under Texas Heartbeat Act

Objectivity 4.0 | Credibility 4.4 | Relevance 4.8

According to Texas Right to Life, the Texas Heartbeat Act has saved more than 10,000 unborn lives since going into effect in September. The law requires abortion doctors to test for a heartbeat and prohibits an abortion if one is detected. Opponents of the law have found it difficult to challenge in court because citizens, not state officials, have the enforcement power to sue abortion doctors who violate it. Whole Woman’s Health and other abortion providers in Texas still provide abortions but only as allowed by law.
