Advocates File Lawsuit to Block Abortion Restrictions
4.This concerns women across the state that wants
or need abortions.
5.These new regulations on abortion will make it
more difficult for women to have the procedure and the abortion rights
advocates filed a lawsuit to block the restrictions.
6.I think the restrictions are meant to ultimately
get rid of abortion all together, which the article mentions. The new law
claims to want to make the hospitals safer but there were hardly any
infractions that were serious enough to be fined. There are hospitals in
Lubbock, Fort Worth, Waco, and other cities that will be cut off because of the
new law. There are only six facilities that meet the requirements in the whole
state and it will make women have to travel further and spend more money to
have the procedure. I don’t think closing down facilities will reduce the
number or stop women from getting abortions. They will just travel further or
even worse, try to terminate pregnancies themselves. I think it’ll create more
problems if the restrictions aren’t blocked.
