This New York Times article discusses a lawsuit brought by the Center for Reproductive Rights and its partners challenging Texas’ ban on abortion at six weeks of pregnancy, before many people know they are pregnant. Nancy Northup, President and CEO of the Center said, “We had to devise a unique strategy to fight this subversive law,” referring to the Center’s legal strategy that includes suing every state court trial judge and clerk in Texas. “We will pursue every legal avenue we can to block this pernicious law.”
Amy Hagstrom Miller, President and Chief Executive of Whole Woman’s Health and Whole Woman’s Health Alliance is also quoted, saying “What happens in Texas when it comes to anti-abortion strategy and anti-abortion regulation unfortunately doesn’t stay in Texas.” She goes on to note, “Texas is grounds both for anti-abortion restrictions and also for some of the biggest wins against those restrictions that we’ve seen in the country.”
