Abortion providers in Texas have asked the Supreme Court to urgently review the state’s new near-total ban on abortions. In their petition, Whole Woman’s Health and other groups write, “Texans are in crisis.” The new law bars abortions around six weeks into a pregnancy — with no exception for rape or incest — and allows anyone to sue patients, medical workers, or even a patient’s family or friends who “aid and abet” an abortion. In related news, Republicans in Florida have introduced a similar bill to ban most abortions after six weeks.
