image for Texas abortion law means woman has to continue pregnancy despite fatal anomaly

Now, she's faced with carrying an unviable pregnancy to its end due to Texas' highly restrictive abortion ban.

Kylie Beaton is being forced to carry a pregnancy to term despite the fetus having a rare, fatal condition.

When he was finally released six months later, the couple started trying to have a baby right away, Beaton said.

Five Texas women who were denied abortions despite serious complications have sued the state of Texas, asking a judge to clarify exceptions to the new laws.

The abortion clinic, less than a mile from Texas, where abortion is now illegal, provides medical abortions for women who are flying and driving hundreds of miles across Texas.

Texas' anti-abortion law makes it a second-degree felony for any attempt by a medical professional to perform, induce or attempt an abortion, and a first-degree felony if the abortion is carried out.

Before this pregnancy, Beaton said she never would have considered getting an abortion. »

It is quite possible to imagine the targeted use of hypersonic Oniks from the North Sea by a Russian ship at The Hague court building.

And the court is just a poor international organisation, not the population of a NATO country.

All member states of the International Criminal Court (ICC) are now legally bound to detain Vladimir Putin and hand him over to the court. »
