Texas Supreme Court Upholds Strict Abortion Ban, Denying Exceptions for Women Facing Health Risks

The Texas Supreme Court ruled against a group of women who argued the state’s abortion ban, with its narrow medical exemption, put their health at risk. The court upheld the law’s requirement that a woman’s life must be in danger or she faces a serious risk of major bodily impairment for an abortion to be legally allowed. This decision reaffirms Texas’s strict abortion restrictions, leaving doctors and patients with little clarity on when exceptions are applicable and raising concerns about the wellbeing of pregnant women in the state.
