NPR: What Texas’ New Abortion Law Means For The Peak Who Seek And Provide Them
The new abortion law in Texas bans abortions after six weeks and allows citizens to sue any person that is helping a patient get an abortion. For affected patients, those that will be most affected are those who lack the resources such as being unable to travel out of state.

As for providers, their only option is to suggest patients go to other states for services.
