Texas law limits abortion because most of the ban remains

Austin, Texas (AP) — Texas Governor Greg Abbott praised another new abortion law that tightens restrictions on abortion-inducing drugs on Friday, with an almost total ban on abortion in the state this month. After it started, I created an additional layer of restrictions.

The new restrictions, which will come into effect in December, will reduce the amount of time Texas doctors and clinics can give abortion-inducing drugs from 10 to 7 weeks and ban the mailing of tablets.

Almost all abortions are banned under another law now known as Senate Bill 8 in Texas, so abortion providers say they recognized their worst fears within a few weeks.

This week, the abortion clinic returned to the US Supreme Court and requested that Senate Bill 8 be blocked again. Another proceeding filed by the Justice Department will be heard by a federal judge in Austin next week.
