Judge allows Kate Cox to have abortionA Travis County judge on Thursday ruled a woman in Texas can obtain an emergency medically indicated abortion, marking the first such intervention in the state since before Roe v. Wade was decided 50 years ago.

After the U.S. Supreme Court in 2022 overturned Roe, the landmark case that made abortion legal nationwide, Texas instituted an abortion ban with few exceptions, including life-threatening complications.

The Center for Reproductive Rights filed the case Tuesday on behalf of Dallas mom of two Kate Cox, her husband, and her OB-GYN. Cox, who is 20 weeks pregnant and whose unborn baby has Trisomy 18, a lethal genetic condition, sought the abortion because her doctors have advised her that there is "virtually no chance" her baby will survive and that continuing the pregnancy poses grave risks to her health and fertility, according to the complaint.
