SB 42 would have required a woman to complete a three-hour adoption course at least 24 hours before obtaining an abortion unless an abortion is necessary to avert the woman’s death or a serious risk of substantial and irreversible physical impairment of a major bodily function, other than a psychological condition. The provision does not apply to an abortion performed on a minor whose pregnancy is a result of sexual assault or incest.

STATUS

This bill was introduced during the second special legislative session called by Gov. Rick Perry in 2013.
