Abortion Access

On March 22nd, Governor Greg Abbot issued Executive Order No. GA-09 which restricted health care facilities from providing services that were "not immediately medically necessary". Attorney General Ken Paxton later clarified that these restrictions included abortions. The state was sued over the constitutionality of this restriction. However, the Order expired on the evening of April 21st and the lawsuit was ended.
