  • Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is fighting for a disabled unborn baby who a Texas judge ruled yesterday could be killed in an abortion.
  • Katie Cox is suing Texas, saying she is seeking an emergency exception in the state’s law protecting babies from abortions. Cox’s baby is approximately 20 weeks old.
  • A judge ruled Cox can legally get an abortion despite the fact that Texas law only allows abortions to save the life of the mother.
  • But Paxton is fighting to protect the baby’s life and Paxton threatened Tuesday to prosecute whoever does the illegal abortion that would end the child’s life.
