Anti-abortion Lawmakers: Who, What, and Why?

Although 61% of Americans believe abortion should be legal, state lawmakers are ultimately the key deciders in these cases.  So who are they and what do they support? 

Sen. Brown has been fighting the Senate Bill 1 proposal by Sen. Sue Glick, which would ban all abortion with the exception of assault, and danger to the mother.

Sen. Erin Grall (R-Florida)

Grall used a Mississippi Law as precedent for the HB5 bill, one that would shorten the abortion window by more than two months than the current U.S. legal window.

Sen. Kristina Roegner (R-Hudson)

Sen. Roegner is a sponsor of the six-week bill, which has two exceptions, including allowing abortion if it's to avoid death or impairment, or if there's no heartbeat.

Sen. Bryan Hughes R-Mineola

Sen. Bryan Hughes, (R-Mineola,) authored the heartbeat bill, saying, “If a Texan’s heartbeat is detected, his or her life will be protected.”

A Call to Action

Now we're in a new year, abortion legislation is sure to return to the forefront of lawmakers’ minds.

As of now, 17 states and the District of Columbia have laws that protect the right to abortion, but this could quickly change.

It is vital to keep up to date with the newest laws and proposed bills, many of which put women across the country in danger of losing the right to their own bodies.
