Texas Abortion Ban Exception Takes Effect

A cleverly-written law in Texas takes effect today that reduces civil penalties for doctors who perform medically necessary abortions that lawmakers say is a step toward future bipartisan efforts to address the state’s abortion ban.

House Bill 3058 allows physicians who perform abortions for specific situations in Texas if and when they are sued under Senate Bill 8. SB8 was passed in 2021, which allows private citizens to sue anyone who performs or provides abortion assistance and potentially collect a $10,000 “bounty.”
