Texas doctor who admitted to violating the state’s near-total abortion ban sued under new law

TEXAS (September 20, 2021)–Dr. Alan Braid said he performed an abortion prohibited by the law earlier this month. Braid said he was motivated by a “duty of care.” Braid was sued for performing an abortion illegally under Texas’ new law that nearly bans the procedure, in what appears to be the first lawsuit tied to the statute.

Stilley said he said he isn’t personally opposed to abortion and thinks the law should be subject to judicial review, according to the Washington Post.
