Texas Governor Signs Bill to Protect Babies Born Alive During Abortions
On Friday, Texas became the latest state to provide protections to infants who survive abortions, the Texas Tribune reports.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed into law House Bill 16, which requires abortion practitioners to provide basic medical care to infants who survive abortions. Individuals who violate the law face third-degree felony charges and a fine up to $100,000.

"Who cares what God Himself has to say...this is about women's rights", is basically what Cano was saying.
