Texas Continues Crackdown on Reproductive Rights, Restricting Use of Abortion-Inducing Meds

HeadlineSep 22, 2021

In reproductive rights news, Texas has enacted yet another law restricting abortion rights by barring doctors from providing medication to induce a medical abortion after only seven weeks into a pregnancy. Anyone who violates the law faces a state felony offense, up to two years in jail and a fine of up to $10,000. NARAL Pro-Choice America said, “Anti-choice politicians have made their intentions abundantly clear, and they will stop at nothing to strip away reproductive freedom.”
