Care Net Pregnancy Center of Central Texas Celebrates Texas Heartbeat Act

WACO, Texas — May 19, 2021 Governor Greg Abbott signed SB8 (by Senator Bryan Hughes and Rep. Shelby Slawson), known as the Texas Heartbeat Act. The Heartbeat Act writes into law Texas values. In relevant part, the Texas Heartbeat Act protects innocent life from the ravages of abortion by: 

Banning abortions when a human baby’s life is detected in the womb by a heartbeat; 

Penalizes physicians from performing or inducing an abortion once a heartbeat is detected; 

Rejects the Roe v. Wade decision by acknowledging that Pre-Roe state laws in Texas that ban abortions are still valid and enforceable; 

Relies on civil enforcement of the law by citizens, making it virtually impossible for a court to strike down the law as “unconstitutional. 

A heartbeat is a key and universal indicator of whether life exists. Once a heartbeat is detected, the doctor must take all necessary steps to protect the life of the child. Importantly, this law sends a message to everyone in our state and in our country that Texas stands for protecting innocent life in the womb. CareNet Pregnancy Center of Central Texas celebrates the passage of SB8 and thanks all the courageous men and women who worked tirelessly to ensure that preborn children in Texas are protected.
