The Hill: Cruz urges Texas Senate to pass 20-week abortion ban
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R) on Wednesday urged his state's legislature to move quickly and pass a bill banning abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy.
"House Bill 2 is an important step that will strengthen protections of innocent, unborn life and improve the safety and health of Texas women," Cruz said of the bill in a statement.
The Texas House approved the abortion bill on Tuesday, and Cruz called on the state Senate to press forward on the measure.
"I hope the Texas Senate will take swift action to pass this legislation for the good of all Texas children and their mothers," he said.
