She wants all “emissions outside of a woman’s vagina, or created outside of a health or medical facility” to carry a $100 (£81) fine. A such emission  would “be considered an act against an unborn child”. Her bill project was submitted with the House Bill number 4260 last week. The real goal it’s not to see this “law” voted and accepted but to offer a new perspective to discussions about restrictions on abortion. Many people reacted criticizing her initiative. “Plain stupid,” said one on Twitter, saying that only a fertilized embryo needs protecting, and asking if she would also use the law on menstruating women. Texas has some of the most restrictive abortion laws in the US and only a few clinics providing abortion remained active. In the 885km (550 miles) between San Antonio and El Paso, the same distance as between Penzance and Edinburgh, there are no abortion clinics. Texas-based group New Wave Feminists insists it wants to support women, but believes a foetus has rights too. New restrictions has been proposed by lawmakers across the country after Trump election. “I’m hoping my bill will wake people up,” Jessica Farrar said.
