The Republican Party of Texas Legislative Priority No. 6 calls for the abolition of abortion. Current Texas law defines an “individual” as a human being who is alive, including “an unborn child at every stage of gestation from fertilization to birth,” Texas Penal Code Sec. 1.07(a)(26). “Murder” is committed when one “intentionally and knowingly causes the death of an individual,” Texas Penal Code Sec. 19.02(b)(1).
In the U.S. each day, more than 3,200 lives are taken in abortion centers while thousands more are taken daily by over-the-counter abortifacient drugs.
