This radical ban has been in effect for nearly two months, during which most Texans have been denied access to abortion care. On Monday we will represent abortion providers before the Supreme Court in our ongoing fight to restore abortion access in Texas. #BansOffOurBodies

“Every person in the U.S. has a stake in how the Court decides this case. Our brief filed today makes clear that doctors, clinic staff, clergy and advocates can sue in federal court to block the vigilante scheme that Texas has created.” —Nancy Northup, Center president and CEO
