Last Friday, Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed a new bill into law prohibiting the use of abortion-inducing drugs, just weeks after the Lone Star State banned most abortions after a heartbeat is detected during pregnancy.

The legislation, titled Texas Senate Bill 4, bars individuals “from providing an abortion‑inducing drug to a pregnant woman without satisfying the applicable informed consent requirements for abortions.”

Under SB4, doctors cannot prescribe abortion pills to women after their preborn baby reaches seven weeks gestation. As reported by The Christian Post, violating the law can result in a felony charge.
