Texas Bill Would Revoke Medical Licenses of Doctors Who Perform Abortions


Texas Bill Would Revoke Medical Licenses of Doctors Who Perform Abortions
The Texas Observer

A bill filed in the Texas Legislatureâs special session would revoke the licenses of doctors who perform abortions in the state, with limited exceptions.The measure, filed by far-right Representative Valoree Swanson, R-Spring, would expand the âprohibited practicesâ that result in a physicianâs license being revoked, a category that already includes several abortion-related measures. Under House Bill 86, almost all abortions would be prohibited, with very narrow exceptions for the health of the woman and fetus: when necessary to save the life of the woman or prevent âsubstantial and irreversible physical impairment of a major bodily function, other than a psychological condition,â or when the procedure is necessary to ensure the viability of another fetus sheâs carrying.
