Planned Parenthood, the Center for Reproductive Rights and the ACLU of Texas filed a federal lawsuit on Friday against some provisions of a controversial Texas abortion law.
The law includes restrictions on medication abortion and other regulations that are aimed to shut down most of Texas’s abortion clinics. State Senator Wendy Davis attempted to block the bill with a 13-hour filibuster earlier this year.
