Relating to the provision of informational materials and certain
other information to a pregnant woman before an abortion.
No fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
SB 24 would prohibit information required by the Department of State Health Services for pregnant women seeking an abortion to be given over audio or video recording. It would also require the information to be provided at least 24 hours before the abortion is to be performed, including in a private telephone call or in-person in a private setting. The bill would additionally set out specific days and times in which the materials are to be presented to the woman.
Texas Action remains neutral on SB 24 as it is a social issue, for which we do not write recommendations.
