WASHINGTON — Today, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) responded to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to allow the lawsuit against Texas’ S.B. 8 licensing officials to continue, while denying relief against state-court officials and the Texas attorney general. S.B. 8 is a dangerous state law that bans abortion after the first six weeks of pregnancy, often before a person knows they are pregnant, and allows private citizens to sue reproductive healthcare providers and others. In September, the Court declined to take emergency action against the law as it was about to go into effect.
