Whole Woman's Health - which won a landmark case in the U.S. Supreme Court a year ago striking down parts of another Texas anti-abortion law - claims that the ban on D&E threatens the health of their patients, impedes patients' access to abortion care, and violates their constitutional rights.
"The abortion industry disingenuously argued in court that the Dismemberment Abortion Ban raises an undue burden for women seeking second trimester abortions by banning all D&E abortions", they emphasize".
However, opponents said the available options resulting in fetal demise prior to procedure carried no medical benefit to the patient but could pose unknown risks.
The abortion clinic lawyers are attempting to frame this lawsuit on how SB 8 will affect Texas women and the abortion industry, however the important question before the court is whether this type of procedure is something Texas has the right to prohibit.
SB 8 refers to D&E procedures with the non-medical term "dismemberment abortion". As the cervical opening is smaller than the fetus at this stage of pregnancy, separation of the fetal tissue usually occurs as the doctor removes it.
Texas Right to Life said its legal scholars anticipate that the ban will stand up in court like the federal Partial Birth Abortion Ban, which also outlawed a specific and particularly gruesome abortion procedure. This procedure can last hours or days, and is more painful and can be more medically unsafe for the patient. Such instruments typically are used in dilation and evacuation (D&E) procedures.
Furthermore, "causing fetal demise by the State's suggestion of injections of either digoxin or potassium chloride, neither of which is labeled for that goal, would violate Texas law prohibiting off-label prescription of an abortion-inducing drug". The judge found that the state's arguments to prevent the restraining order unpersuasive and to possess a "thin record".
"Dismemberment abortions are gruesome and inhumane, which makes it troubling that a district court would block Texas' lawful authority to protect the life of unborn children from such a barbaric practice", added Marc Rylander, director of communications for Paxton's office.
He also argued that women would "suffer irreparable harm by being unable to access the most commonly used and safest previability-second-trimester-abortion procedure", which dismembers their unborn babies, the AP reports.
Both sides are expected back in court September 14 in Austin for a hearing where Yeakle is expected to consider whether to issue a preliminary injunction as the case proceeds.
