A judge has stepped in to put at least a temporary halt to the implementation of a new abortion law in Texas:

In a disappointing but not wholly unexpected ruling, a liberal Texas judge blocked a law Thursday that would protect unborn babies from dismemberment abortions.
U.S. District Judge Lee Yeakel blocked Texas Senate Bill 8 one day before it would have gone into effect, according to the Tribune News Service.
Signed into law earlier this summer, Texas Senate Bill 8 prohibits dismemberment abortions, a method typically used in the second trimester to kill nearly fully-formed, living unborn babies. It is a barbaric and dangerous procedure in which the unborn baby is ripped apart in the womb and pulled out in pieces while his or her heart is still beating.
There will be another hearing in a couple of weeks to determine if the “dismemberment abortion” ban go into effect or remain blocked. So this is comforting:
We have judges who think the right to kill babies specifically by tearing them limb from limb is in the constitution. https://t.co/Yef7JeFSJt

“Good news”? #Facepalm.
We've seen how restrictions on abortion can push it out of reach. Today’s order will ensure women can continue to get the care they need! pic.twitter.com/XQ03DYDjNc
