The Texas Supreme Court has ruled against over 20 Texas women who sued the state over delayed or denied abortions during medical emergencies, as reported by the Dallas Morning News. The court rejected an injunction that would have exempted Texans with complicated pregnancies from the state’s abortion bans. The justices argued that Texas law already allows lifesaving abortions when a woman’s life or physical health is at risk. The case, known as Zurawski vs. State of Texas, gained national attention as plaintiffs shared their stories of seeking abortion care under the bans. The ruling puts the responsibility on physicians to make legal decisions regarding abortions.
