Texas abortion: Doctor sued in first known challenges of new law
A Texas doctor who admitted to breaking the state's new abortion legislation has been sued, in what could be a test of how lawful the mandate is.
Writing for the Washington Post, Alan Braid said he had carried out a termination on a woman who was in the early stages of her pregnancy but "beyond the state's new limit".
Former lawyers in Arkansas and Illinois filed lawsuits against him on Monday.
The new legislation bans abortions from as early as six weeks into a pregnancy.
