CASE ENTRY

In re: Abbott

The latest in the quickly evolving COVID-related litigation about temporarily halting abortions: After much volleying among courts, the Fifth Circuit says two kinds of abortions may now be conducted in Texas: medication abortions and surgical abortions for women whose pregnancies will be past the legal limit for abortion when the governor’s order ends. Next door in Oklahoma, there’s less back-and-forth: The Tenth Circuit will not review a district court’s order allowing medication abortions and surgical abortions for women whose pregnancies will be past the legal limit for abortion when the governor’s order ends.
