A lawsuit in Texas could have an impact on access to the abortion pill in Michigan.
Michigan’s abortion rights constitutional amendment has not taken effect yet, but now a new court challenge in Texas threatens to halt abortions nationwide.
Bridge Michigan reports that Friday, the anti-abortion group Alliance for Defending Freedom filed a suit in Amarillo seeking to overturn the FDA’s 22 year-old approval of two drugs used together to induce abortions. If they win the case, the Trump-appointed judge presiding over the case could halt abortions by medication nationwide, unless the ruling is put on hold or overruled by a higher court.
Michigan’s Proposal 3, enshrining abortion rights in the state constitution, is set to take effect on December 23.
