Abortion Hearing

Posted: Updated:

An Austin Federal Judge is scheduled to hear final arguments over whether to stop Texas from enforcing new abortion restrictions.

"Planned Parenthood" is challenging the new restrictions as a burden to women and their doctors.

The state cross-examined abortion providers on Tuesday, trying to show the Judge that the clinics are currently providing the women with sub-standard care.

Abortion right supporters disagree and said under the new law, thousands of women would get no care at all.

A decision is expected as early as Monday, the day before the new restrictions are set to go into effect.
