New Abortion Restrictions Will Bring Heated Court Battle
Newly passed abortion restrictions adopted in Texas is the latest in a series of state-level political fights triggering a frenzy of legal action that could determine how much access to abortion services American women have in the future.
A sweeping set of abortion restrictions adopted by the Texas state Senate on Saturday is the latest in a series of state-level political fights triggering a frenzy of legal action that could determine how much access to abortion services American women have in the future.
Abortion opponents hope that eventually some of cases will reach the U.S. Supreme Court.
In recent months, abortion has moved to the political center stage as an increasing number of Republican-controlled legislatures have enacted new abortion restrictions. The result is a flurry of activity by both opponents and supporters of abortion rights that has made the abortion debate more politically volatile than it has been in many years.
