The Texas Abortion Law


Brooke Rosen, Reporter

The new Texas abortion law is causing a stir in our society. It was passed on September first of this year, and banning women to get abortions after 6 weeks. When reading more about this topic, I found an article by the Washington Post. It tells us readers about how a doctor is getting sued because of how he helped a woman who wanted an abortion. Alan Braid is a physician in San Antonio. The article quotes him saying, “He said he filed the claim not because of strongly held views about reproductive rights but in part because of the $10,000 he could receive if the lawsuit is successful.” If he wins the lawsuit, it will help women and pro-life get a better chance of getting rid of this law. He told the Washington Post op-ed, “that he acted because of his duty as a doctor and “because she has a fundamental right to receive this care.” Another statement he said was “‘If the law is no good, why should we have to go through a long, drawn-out process to find out if it’s garbage?’ he said after filing the complaint in state court in Bexar County, which includes San Antonio.” I can concluded from this information, that Alan Braid did they right thing in my opinion and giving the abortion to the girl.
