Texas' New Abortion Law Faces Federal Court

Ad Feedback

The fight for life is taking center stage at a federal court in Texas.

Texas' new abortion restrictions law passed the Republican-controlled state house this summer. It requires abortion providers to have nearby hospital admitting privileges and imposes stricter guidelines on medical abortions that take place after 20 weeks.

Opponents of the new abortion law are suing to stop the measure from going into effect next week. They say it will put women's health at risk.

"We're concerned that if this law goes through, we're now going to see another series of health centers close," Sarah Wheat, with Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas, said.

Supporters say it protects both mothers and babies. Pro-choice groups, like Planned Parenthood, say it does more harm than good.

The judge in the case won't be ruling on if women should have abortions, but rather on the constitutionality of the new abortion measure in Texas.
