Dustin Burrows is Being Sued by 13 Parties Over Abortion Law
On Thursday, September 23rd, State Representative Dustin Burrows of Lubbock was served with 13 lawsuits in relation to the recently passed Texas Heartbeat Act.
The Texas Heartbeat Act allows private citizens to sue abortion providers and bans abortion once a heartbeat is detected. Burrows was one of many supporters of the legislation when it was passed in the Texas House earlier in 2021.
Burrows revealed the lawsuits on his Twitter account, saying that:
The extent to which human beings will go to defend the killing of other human beings is astounding. I remain undeterred in standing up for EVERY heartbeat!
One of the parties suing Burrows, the Lilith Fund for Reproductive Equity Inc., listed him, the State of Texas, Governor Greg Abbott, State Senator Charles Perry, Texas Right to Life and many others in their lawsuit.reports
