Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott’s (R) office said that the constitutionality of the state’s strict abortion law will eventually be decided by the appellate courts or the Supreme Court.
The statement comes in response to a ruling by a federal judge which found that part of the law placed an “undue burden” on women seeking abortions.
“The court upheld part of the law and enjoined part of the law,” Abbott spokesman Lauren Bean said in a statement. “The State has already appealed the court’s ruling. We appreciate the trial court’s attention in this matter. As everyone – including the trial court judge – has acknowledged, this is a matter that will ultimately be resolved by the appellate courts or the U.S. Supreme Court.”
