On March 2nd, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on the decision by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals to uphold Texas’ HB 2 that requires abortion clinics to have common-sense health and safety standards to better protect women. We encourage all Texans to be in prayer for the nation’s high court and for Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s office as they defend this critically important law.
Texas Values and numerous other organizations have submitted legal briefs to the Supreme Court in support of upholding Texas’ HB 2 law. Please find below links to all 34 submitted amicus briefs in favor of upholding HB 2’s common-sense health and safety provisions:
