Upon its entry into force on September 1, Senate Bill 8 became the most restrictive abortion law in the United States, challenging the strength of Roe v. Wade and once again making Texas the focal point of a decades-long battle for reproductive rights.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton defended the law on Wednesday, saying the abortion ban does not interfere with local commerce, as women are forced to travel out of state for the procedure. But Ray Perryman, chairman of Waco-based economic research firm The Perryman Group, said the controversial legislation could limit the state’s economic outlook and negatively impact the state’s potential for future economic growth. .
