Abortion advocates react to Supreme Court's SB8 ruling
Abortion advocates are speaking out after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled to allow abortion providers to sue over Texas’ SB 8 abortion law but let it remain in place.
“The Supreme Court felt as if it would be better handled in the state courts,” Kamyon Connor of Texas Equal Access said. “It could still make its way back to the Supreme Court, but it would have to be appealed and appealed.”
Advocates say, for now, the court’s ruling means more out-of-state travel for people seeking abortions after six weeks and could inspire other states to create similar bans on the medical procedure.
