In “The Top Target of Texas’ Abortion Bounty Law Isn’t Backing Down,” Rolling Stone speaks with Dr. Alan Braid, a Texas doctor who provided an abortion in violation of the state’s abortion bounty law, S.B. 8. On December 8, a Texas court ruled that it would dismiss a lawsuit against Braid, rejecting the idea that a person not directly impacted by the abortion can sue under S.B. 8.
Nancy Northup, President and CEO of the Center for Reproductive Rights, which represented Braid, was quoted in the article. Northup called the decision “a significant win against S.B. 8’s bounty-hunting scheme because the court rejected the notion that Texas can allow a person with no connection to an abortion to sue.”
