Texas state Rep. Shelby Slawson, R-Stephenville, center, stands with co-sponsors as she answers questions about a proposed bill in the House Chamber, Wednesday, May 5, 2021, in Austin, Texas. Slawson is co-sponsoring a bill introduced in Texas that would ban abortions as early as six weeks and allow private citizens to enforce it through civil lawsuits, under a measure given preliminary approval by the Republican-dominated House. The move would have Texas join about a dozen other Republican-led states to pass so-called "heartbeat bills" which have been mostly blocked by federal courts. (AP Photo/Eric Gay)
