A federal judge in Texas has overruled prohibition on frequently utilized second trimester abortion procedure, trading bluster to attempts to prohibit abortion in that state. U.S. District Court Judge Lee Yeakel’s announcement succeeded an interim directive furnished in August intercepting Texas from prohibiting the process known as dilation and evacuation. That directive came into existence on the day before the ban was going to be effective.
The Texas law known as Senate bill 8, and sanctioned by Gov. Greg Abbott earlier this year was confronted in a law suit ushered by abortion providers. They debated that the prohibition would need women soliciting to end their pregnancies to experience additional unwarranted invading and possibly excruciating medical procedures so that they could ingress constitutional right to an abortion before commencing a D&E procedure.
Judge Yeakel also said that the court is ignorant of any other medical circumstances that need a doctor, in violation of the doctor’s medical acumen and the speedy recovery of the patient, to supervise a medical process that conveys nil welfare of the women. The judge’s decision is pronounced on the day his short term directive was to have ceased. Texas Attorney General, Ken Paxton, instantly lodged a notice to appeal the ruling to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
Paxton also stated in a statement that through a five day trial in the district court, a record was generated in uncovering the terror of mutilating abortions. No fair minded society should authorize the harrowing of living human beings.
