(Before It's News)

In yet another unbelievably heartless move by the Republican Party, the Texas Senate is about to vote on a bill that would allow doctors to conceal from women that a child will be born deformed or disabled: Texas ‘wrongful birth’ bill would allow doctors to lie, critics say.

The Texas Senate may soon decide on a bill that prevents parents from suing their doctor if their baby is born with a disability — a move abortion-rights supporters say will result in doctors lying to patients about the health of fetuses.

Supporters of the measure, Senate Bill 25, say it is needed to protect doctors from “wrongful birth” lawsuits and to protect the rights of the disabled.

“Senate Bill 25 will send a message that Texas does not believe that a life, in and of itself, is an injury in which parents need a damage payment,” said state Sen. Brandon Creighton, the bill’s author and a Republican from a town about 45 miles north of Houston.
