(Newser) – Yet another controversial abortion bill has been filed in Texas, this one by a Democrat in the state Senate. Eddie Lucio's Senate Bill 42 would require women to take a free, three-hour "adoption education course" before being cleared to get an abortion, the San Antonio Express-News reports. The course could be taken in person or online, and the woman would have to show her doctor a certificate of completion. Lucio was the only Democrat to vote for Texas' sweeping abortion restrictions.

GOP policy = Save the fetus. Who cares whether the mother dies. She probably votes liberal anyway.
