Cain files Texas Heartbeat Bill

Today, Texas State Representative Briscoe Cain (R-Deer Park) filed House Bill 1500, known as the Texas Heartbeat Bill. This commonsense piece of legislation codifies the straightforward idea—if the heartbeat is detected, the baby is protected. Representatives Phil King (R-Weatherford), Dan Flynn (R-Van), Tan Parker (R-Flower Mound), and Rick Miller (R-Sugar Land) have boldly stepped forward as joint-authors.
