Abortions Are Legal Again In Texas


The executive order from Gov Greg Abbott that temporarily prohibited almost all types of abortions in Texas, U.S.A. finally expired on April 21st. On April 23rd Abbott issued a new ruling that will allow abortions to continue.

This follows several weeks of a legal feud between the Texan authorities and abortion clinics supported by civil rights activists. The initial ban listed abortions among “non-essential” medical procedures that would potentially affect the availability of resources amidst the COVID-19 outbreak.

Many Texan women had to travel to other states to receive abortions. 

The new order allows healthcare organizations to continue “non-essential” procedures as long as a portion of their facilities are reserved for potential Coronavirus patients. The protective equipment for staff should not be publicly sourced.
