Texas judge rules against abortion law’s enforcement provision
December 10, 2021
CWN Editor's Note: A Texas judge has ruled that the state should not enforce a controversial provision of a new law restricting abortion.
Judge David Peeples ruled that by allowing any citizen to enforce the law, the legislation is unconstitutional. However his decision did not include an injunction against the law—thus leaving room for further legal challenges.
The US Supreme Court has declined to consider the law until there is a legal challenge—which could arise only if and when the law is enforced an abortionist faces criminal charges.
