Texas' recent controversial abortion law succeeded by taking aim at "unbroken ground," for the first time getting the abortion industry to comply with the law "in a way that means abortions are being prevented and lives are being saved," according to experts — and the Texas law may soon inspire other states to join in.

Texas SB-8, the Texas Heartbeat Protection Act, was signed into law by Gov. Greg Abbott on May 19 and went into effect Sept. 1. It prohibits abortions of any unborn child having a detectable heartbeat. What separates it from similar laws is that it removes the enforcement power from the state and gives it to private individuals.
