Texas Lawmakers Advance Bill That Would Allow Doctors to Lie to Pregnant Women

This morning, the Texas Senate Committee on State Affairs unanimously passed a bill on to the full Senate that would let the government decide what a pregnant woman deserves to know about the health of her unborn child.

Committee members, it appears, believe it should be up to the doctor to decide if a pregnant woman should know she’s carrying a fetus with severe disabilities — especially if the doctor suspects she’ll have an abortion if she finds out. If passed, the law would make it impossible for Texans to sue a doctor for intentionally withholding this kind of information about a fetus’ health.
