Former State Senator Wendy Davis Files Federal Lawsuit Challenging Texas Abortion Law as Unconstitutional | app


DALLAS — Former North Texas State Senator Wendy Davis, best known for her 1 p.m. filibuster against an abortion bill in 2013, filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday against Bill 8 of the Senate, challenging the restrictions that came into effect on September 1 banning abortions after six weeks is unconstitutional.

The lawsuit argues that the law violates due process and the plaintiff’s freedom of speech and asks the court to declare unenforceable both that law and the old Texas abortion law.
