A new Texas law passed during the recent legislative session could protect the lives of numerous unborn children in the Lone Star State. But it hasn’t been without controversy.

Brandon Waltens joins Texas Right to Life’s John Seago on the third installment of our Autopsy File podcast series to discuss the Heartbeat Act, which has drawn the ire of the pro-abortion mob since going into effect.

The premise of the Heartbeat Bill is to make abortion illegal when a heartbeat can be detected, usually six weeks after inception. Put simply, if the heartbeat is detected, the life is protected.

But despite Republicans holding majorities in the state Legislature for decades, the major move wasn’t made until this year.

Seago explains how grassroots activists helped make the bill into law, the reaction it has received since, and what the next steps are for the pro-life movement.
