25759623-sfAUSTIN, TX – A controversial subject, abortion, with yet another twist.

A federal appeals court in New Orleans upheld Texas’ tough new abortion restrictions. Those restrictions were passed last year, implementing some of the toughest restrictions in the U.S. on how and where women could get an abortion. Many clinics had no choice but to close their doors.

It’s been a back and forward issue. Last October, a judge said the ruling was unconstitutional ¬†and placed a burden on women. But for now, the restrictions are staying. and so continues the see-sawing on the topic of abortion.
