The state is about to pass a law requiring all physicians to have an abortion-related appointment before prescribing any medication, the first step toward outlawing abortion in the Lone Star State.
The bill would go into effect this month and will be in effect for two years.
Abortion providers will be forced to have abortions and face fines if they do not.
The law will also apply to the surgical abortions that have been legal in Texas for nearly two decades, including the first two clinics that opened in 2011.
The state Senate has already passed a version of the bill, which the governor signed in May.
It now goes to the House, where some Republicans are hoping to make it tougher on abortion providers.
Republicans argue that the state needs to be able to provide for women who cannot afford the procedure, and that they will have more power to limit abortions if they control the state budget.
