The U.S. Supreme Court is overturning a lower court ruling that banned nearly all abortions in Texas during the coronavirus pandemic.

Gov. Greg Abbott ordered a stop to nonessential medical procedures in March 2020 to help preserve PPE and conserve hospital resources. Attorney General Ken Paxton later clarified that it included “any type of abortion.”

A federal court judge in Texas declared the move too broad, but it was reinstated by the Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans.
