  • In a major victory for abortion rights supporters, a Texas judge has ruled that the state's law banning abortions is too restrictive and violates the state Constitution. The judge says that there must be a clearly stated exemption for women whose health or lives are in danger or whose fetuses have little likelihood of survival. However, the Texas attorney general's office has put the ruling on hold while the Texas Supreme Court considers an appeal. This case is significant as it is believed to be the first brought by women who had been denied abortions; past legal challenges have typically been brought by abortion rights groups or doctors and clinics. Last year, all abortion clinics in Texas closed following the state law banning virtually all procedures after six weeks of pregnancy.In other news, the Justice Department is seeking to bar former President Donald Trump from publicly discussing the evidence against him or the witnesses expected to testify against him. The defense is entitled to this information in order to prepare their case, but special counsel Jack Smith is concerned about Trump's history of using social media to criticize witnesses, judges, and lawyers in previous cases. Smith cited a recent post by Trump in which he stated that if he is targeted, he will come after his accusers. Trump's spokesperson defended the post as protected political speech. The judge is expected to make a ruling on this request next week.Additionally, former Prime Minister Imran Khan of Pakistan was arrested by Pakistani police today after a court sentenced him to three years in prison on corruption charges. Khan's party maintains his innocence and plans to file an appeal.
