Texas Supreme Court Allows Century-Old Abortion Law to Take Effect

HeadlineJul 05, 2022

In Texas, the state Supreme Court ruled Friday that a century-old law banning abortions can take effect, following the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark decision striking down Roe v. Wade. The Texas ruling means anyone providing an abortion could face lawsuits and financial penalties. Whole Women’s Health has since suspended abortion care at its clinics across Texas.
