House Bill 1500, the Texas Heartbeat Bill is a commonsense piece of legislation that codifies the straightforward idea—if the heartbeat is detected, the baby is protected. The Texas Heartbeat Bill empowers the beating heart of an unborn baby to cease a heart-stopping abortion.

Representative Cain commented: “Just as a heart is the universal sign of Valentine’s Day, a beating heart is the universal sign of life. Eleven other states have filed heartbeat bills this year, making 2019 the year of the Heartbeat Bill. I am humbled to see the growing wave of support this and other heartbeat bills are receiving across the country.”
