Judge Blocks Parts of Texas Abortion Law

A federal judge barred Texas from enforcing two key provisions of abortion restrictions that were to take effect Tuesday, the Austin American Statesman reports.

"The two measures passed in July amid a marathon Democratic filibuster and massive protests at the state Capitol. Aside from provisions on abortion-inducing drugs and admitting privileges, the law also only allows abortions in surgical centers and bans the procedure after 20 weeks."
