Federal Court Temporarily Halts Unconstitutional Texas Abortion Restrictions After Legal Challenge from Center for Reproductive Rights

A federal court judge today granted a request from the Center for Reproductive Rights to halt new regulations designed to cut off access to legal abortion and shame women. The temporary restraining order will prevent the regulations from taking effect while the Center’s litigationcontinues. The lawsuit seeks a permanent injunction against the new regulations, which mandate the burial or cremation of embryonic and fetal tissue that results from abortions, miscarriages, or ectopic pregnancy surgery, regardless of the woman’s personal wishes or beliefs.

Center for Reproductive Rights, Planned Parenthood, ACLU File Challenges to Abortion Restrictions in Three States

Abortion rights groups today announced a new wave of litigation to protect and expand access to abortion, with more to come. The three simultaneous lawsuits announced today challenge medically unnecessary abortion restrictions in Alaska, Missouri, and North Carolina. This follows the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark decision in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, which struck down two Texas laws that devastated access to abortion in the state. Since the ruling, abortion restrictions in Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Oklahoma and Wisconsin have already been blocked — and that’s just the beginning.
