What’s next in the fight against the Texas legislation that has forced a historically unparalleled reduction of abortion services? Center for Reproductive Rights President and CEO Nancy Northup appeared last night on the Rachel Maddow Show to talk about it.
“What we saw last Thursday with the decision by the United States Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit is unprecedented,” says Northup. “We have never seen the effect of a law like you see in Texas where you lose 80% of the clinics in a state.”
The Center for Reproductive Rights has filed an emergency petition with the United States Supreme Court asking that the court take immediate action to put the Texas laws on hold.
