Each state now has the power to decide its own abortion laws due to the overturning of Roe v. Wade, including the state of Texas. The June 2022 decision by the Supreme Court has allowed state governments to enforce specific abortion laws, some instituting stricter abortion laws than others.
Abortion Laws in Texas
If you reside in Texas, you may be wondering if there are any new abortion restrictions after the overturning of Roe. Due to existing Texas abortion laws, abortion is illegal in Texas, with exceptions of the life of the woman.

Confirm Your Pregnancy Details
Before moving forward with abortion, it’s essential to confirm your pregnancy details with both lab-quality pregnancy testing and an ultrasound.
An ultrasound confirms how far along you are, confirms viability (whether you have a healthy, growing pregnancy), and confirms the location of your pregnancy (whether your pregnancy is growing within your uterus). An ultrasound also alerts you to any possible pregnancy complications.
