The Mad Abbott of Texas and his pro-life nutters won't like this.

Texas judge grants pregnant woman's request to get an abortion.

A Texas judge on Thursday granted an emergency order allowing a pregnant woman whose fetus has a fatal diagnosis to get an abortion in the state.

Late last month, Kate Cox, a 31-year-old Dallas-area mother of two who is about 20 weeks pregnant, found out that her developing fetus has trisomy 18, a rare chromosomal disorder likely to cause stillbirth or the death of the baby shortly after it’s born.

Texas law prohibits almost all abortions with limited exceptions. So on behalf of Cox, her husband and her doctor, lawyers with the Center for Reproductive Rights filed a request for a temporary restraining order that would block the state’s abortion bans in Cox's case and enable her to terminate her pregnancy.....
How sick is it when you have to go to these costly extremes to avoid a greater tragedy?

Well religious nutter Kenny has stepped up to inflict torture on top of pain on the poor girl. :-(

Texas Supreme Court temporarily blocks woman from having an emergency abortion.

The Texas Supreme Court has temporarily blocked a pregnant woman from obtaining an emergency abortion shortly after the state's attorney general requested the block.

The legal battle is a major test case since the US Supreme Court overturned the nationwide constitutional right to abortion last year, enabling states like Texas to pass near complete bans.

The Texas court on Friday halted a lower court ruling allowing the emergency abortion, responding to a petition from Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton earlier in the day....

It seems that living in a MAGA GOP state is like living under the Taliban for women.

Woman who suffered miscarriage is charged with abusing corpse, as US hospitals struggle with abortion laws.

A US woman who miscarried at 21 weeks pregnant could face a year in prison in Ohio after she was charged with abuse of a corpse.

Brittany Watts, 33, began passing thick blood clots during her second trimester in September.

A doctor told her that while the foetal heartbeat was still present, her water had broken prematurely and the foetus would not survive.

He advised heading to the hospital to have her labour induced, so she could have what amounted to an abortion to deliver the non-viable foetus.

Otherwise, she would face "significant risk" of death, according to records of her case.

What followed for Ms Watts was a harrowing three days of multiple trips to the hospital; and miscarrying in a toilet at her home.....

It beggars belief in the legal system.
CPS drops case
3 year investigation & they drop it for "lack of evidence".
3 years of wasting public funds.
They should be charged with theft from the public purse!
