Judge temporarily blocks Texas anti-abortion law

06:05

A federal judge in Texas issued an order to temporarily block Texas’ restrictive anti-abortion law. Cecile Richards, former president of Planned Parenthood, says the judge’s ruling is an important temporary victory: “It’s being met with enormous excitement and gratitude that there was finally some sign of relief for the women of Texas. But I think there’s a long road ahead to restoring full abortion access for people in the state.”
