Gov. Abbott signs bill outlawing unsolicited nude photos


On Sunday, Sept. 1, hundreds of new state laws will go into effect in Texas.

One of them involves naked photos.

Starting on the first of next month, it will be illegal for individuals to send you unsolicited nude photos you never asked for or wanted.

"Many people – especially women – get unwanted sexually explicit pictures by text or social media," Texas Gov. Greg Abbott posted on his official social media accounts. "Now, it's illegal in Texas."

Gov. Abbott ceremoniously signed House Bill 2789 into law last Friday.
