Texas judge grants restraining order against anti-abortion group, temporarily preventing lawsuits

A Texas state judge issued a temporary restraining order against an anti-abortion group Friday, preventing it from suing abortion providers employed by Planned Parenthood under a harsh new abortion law that went into effect earlier this week.

Travis County District Judge Maya Guerra Gamble ruled that under the Senate Bill 8 law, Planned Parenthood and its staff and patients faced "probable, irreparable, and imminent injury" if they were sued by the nonprofit group Texas Right to Life, its legislative director and 100 unidentified individuals.

However, her three-page order does not prevent others from using the new law against Planned Parenthood or other abortion providers in Texas.

A hearing on a preliminary injunction request was set for Sept. 13.

The pushback is gaining ground it seems. A long way to go still but keep it up Dems! Alot is at stake.
