A Rio Grande Valley lawmaker wants women seeking an abortion to take a class about adoption before undergoing the procedure.

Texas State Senator Eddie Lucio, Jr. (D-Brownsville) filed Senate Bill 42 on Monday.

The bill would require Texas woman seeking an abortion to take a three-hour class about a pregnant woman's option for adoption.

Under the bill, the Texas Human Services Commission and Texas Department of Family and Protective Services would oversee the free classes.

A woman taking the class would be given a certificate and then be able to get an abortion.

Lucio was not immediately available for comment but news of the bill is circulating on-line where it is getting both support and opposition.
