Abortions After Six Weeks Of Pregnancy Resume In Texas Clinics After Federal Judge Temporarily Blocked Near Total Ban

Abortion services have resumed at some Texas clinics after a federal judge blocked enforcement of the state's six-week abortion ban.

One clinic, Whole Woman's Health, said on Twitter that it was able to provide abortions to people who had already complied with Texas's mandatory 24-hour waiting period.

"We've reached out to people on the waiting list we had to turn away in September. In this climate, every single abortion we can provide is a win," the clinic said on Twitter.

We were able to provide abortions today to people who had already complied with Texas' 24 hour-waiting period. We've reached out to people on the waiting list we had to turn away in September. In this climate, every single abortion we can provide is a win.

We are providing abortions in accordance with Judge Pittman's ruling out of compassion for our patients. #SB8 left our patients with two choices: carry a pregnancy to term against their will or travel out of state to receive care. This ban hurt Texans and now we can help them.

On Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Robert Pitman blocked the Texas law, which bans abortions after a "fetal heartbeat" is detected, which normally occurs at around six weeks of pregnancy. The law also allowed private citizens to sue those who "aid or abet" in abortions in violation of the law.
