Abortion In Texas

What if I see a heartbeat?

In Texas, once a heartbeat has been detected, abortion in prohibited by law. 

What if I don’t see a heartbeat?

There are many reasons why a woman can have a positive pregnancy test and a heartbeat cannot be detected on a sonogram. 

You may be too early in pregnancy for a heartbeat to be detected. 
You may not have a viable pregnancy. About 10 to 20 percent of known pregnancies end in miscarriage.
If you don’t have a viable pregnancy an abortion may be unnecessary. 
Obtain another scan in a few days/ a week to confirm you are pregnant

What about the people who help me get an abortion?

Texas now says that any person(s) who knowingly aids or abets in any abortion, after the heartbeat is detected, can be held liable in a civil suit. This can be the abortion doctor or nurse, but also your friend or boyfriend who provides transportation to the abortion or pays for the abortion.
