17 Texas GOP Members Back Bill To Ban Abortions, IVF, IUDs, & Some Birth Control

Texas Republicans lead the charge in national comprehensive reproductive rights rollback.


Last year, Virginia Republican Congressman Alex Mooney filed HR 431, the Life At Conception Act. It didn’t get a lot of traction or attention at the time but with the recent ruling in Alabama declaring embryos “people,” HR 431 is receiving new vigor. The original bill included 64 co-signers.
