Texas Bill to Remove ‘Risk of Breast Cancer’ From Informed Consent Requirements (SB 33)
This law was last updated on Nov 13, 2013
SB 33 would have removed from the Texas Woman’s Right to Know Act (passed in 2003 (SB 835) and amended in 2011(HB 15)) the provision that requires an abortion provider to inform a woman seeking abortion that induced abortions increase the risk of breast cancer.
An increase in risk of breast cancer is not supported by medical research. In fact, a new study confirms that there is no causative link between abortion and breast cancer.
