AUSTIN, Texas - A bill that would reduce the crime of infanticide from
capital murder to a state jail felony is nearing a vote by the full Texas
House of Representatives. HB 3318, filed by Jessica Farrar (D-Houston), is
now eligible to be scheduled on the House calendar for a vote by all 150
Texas House members, since it was recently passed by the House Criminal
Jurisprudence Committee. The decision could come at any time.

“We already have incomplete protection for unborn children, and the assault,
under this bill, will now extend to babies once they’re born by giving them
less protection,” said Jonathan Saenz, director of legislative affairs at
Free Market Foundation, who testified against the bill.

“We strongly oppose this bill and urge the Texas House leadership, both
Republican and Democrat, to publicly condemn this outrageous legislation and
stop it in its tracks.”

Current law states that if a child under the age of six is murdered, it is
capital murder. HB 3318 would reduce the crime of murder against a child
the age of birth-12 months to only a state jail felony with a minimum
punishment of 180 days to a maximum of 2 years, if the murder committed by
the child’s mother is attributed to “impaired (judgment) as a result of the
effects of giving birth or the effects of lactation following the birth.”

Texas would be the first state in the United States to have such a law.

My reading of this law is that it applies only in the case of a mentally unbalanced mother doing the act. Having represented a woman with postpartum psychosis, who killed ... Read More Read More
