Texans Cuts Tracker: Texans 53 Man Roster Deadline 3pm CT Saturday
United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit
A sharply divided Supreme Court on Tuesday allowed Texas to continue enforcing abortion restrictions that opponents say have led more than a third of the state’s clinics to stop providing abortions.
A federal appeals court on Thursday ruled that most of Texas’ tough new abortion restrictions can take effect immediately — a decision that means as least 12 clinics won’t be able to perform the procedure starting as soon as Friday.
The only abortion clinic in a 300-mile swath of West Texas can resume taking appointments after a federal judge struck down new restrictions that would have effectively shuttered it and at least a dozen other clinics across the state.
