Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nypost.com: “Houston clinic suspending abortions amid overturning of Roe v. Wade”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A Houston abortion clinic said Friday it was immediately suspending all abortion procedures in the wake of the Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade.

The Houston Women’s Clinic, which said it had 10 abortions planned for Friday, hung up a sign saying “HWC is no longer able to provide abortion care” as it said its lawyers advised to immediately halt the procedures because of Texas law.

“At the direction and advice of our (legal) council we decided to do so out of an abundance of caution,” the clinic director, who only wanted to be identified as Sheila for personal safety, told The Post. “The last thing we need is our doctor to face criminal charges.”

The immediate stoppage of the procedures at the clinic comes even though the Texas trigger law banning abortions will not go into effect for about a month.

Aside from the trigger law, the clinic’s director was worried about a second law on the books in Texas.
