OAG Files Appeal to Texas Supreme Court, Blocking Judge’s Injunction in Lawsuit Over Exceptions to State Abortion Laws

Erica Pauda, for KXAN:

The Office of the Attorney General filed an appeal Saturday to the Texas Supreme Court after a Texas judge issued a temporary injunction over exceptions to state abortion laws, according to a news release from the OAG’s office.

The ruling clears things up for doctors on when they can provide abortions. Those cases include medical conditions that pose a risk of infection or unsafe pregnancy that could pose a risk to the mother’s health, medical conditions that are exacerbated by pregnancy and fetal conditions where the fetus is unlikely to survive.
