Bradford Pearson reports that a coalition of groups led by Planned Parenthood has filed a suit asking a federal court to block restrictive provisions of House Bill 2, the anti-abortion measures that last June state Sen. Wendy Davis filibustered to block. The law goes into effect Oct. 29.
Says Planned Parenthood:
“The restrictions in this law, combined with years of policies that have shredded the women’s health care safety net in Texas, would mean that a woman’s ability to make personal decisions about her reproductive health care in Texas would depend on where she lives,” Planned Parenthood officials said in a statement. “That is unacceptable. We are in court because a woman’s ability to access reproductive health care should not be dependent on her zip code.”
