DW News published this video item, entitled “Texas’s abortion ban ‘not a partisan issue,’ says Republican state senator | Conflict Zone” – below is their description.

In a sign of growing impatience, the administration of Joe Biden in the United States has stepped up its objections to a new abortion law in Texas and asked the Supreme Court to block it. The Texas law is controversial. It bans termination after a fetal heartbeat is detected and when many women may not even realize they are pregnant. Our guest this week from Austin is Bryan Hughes, a Texas state senator who spearheaded the legislation. What makes him think he’s doing the right thing?
