Texas Tribune: In win for Planned Parenthood, US Supreme Court wipes case law supporting Texas pandemic abortion ban from the books

The high court vacated two rulings from the lower U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals that sided with Texas GOP officials arguing that Gov. Greg Abbott’s March 2020 executive order prohibited abortion under all but a few narrow circumstances in an attempt to preserve medical resources for COVID-19 patients. Abortion providers have said that the procedure rarely requires hospital time and typically does not involve extensive personal protective equipment.

The executive order ended over the summer, allowing abortions in the state to resume, but Planned Parenthood has said leaving the lower court rulings on the books would set harmful legal precedent for abortion rights advocates.

In a statement, Planned Parenthood, the Center for Reproductive Rights and the Lawyering Project called Abbott’s order “a transparent attempt to chip away at access to reproductive health care by exploiting a public health crisis,” and said it was “important we took this procedural step to make sure bad case law was wiped from the books,” according to a NBC News report.
