The Senate Judiciary Committee held a hearing on the recently-passed Texas law that bans abortions as early as six weeks of pregnancy. The U.S. Supreme Court upheld the law through its use of the emergency “shadow” docket." Legal and women’s rights experts, including Texas State Representative Donna Howard (D), testified on the impact of the Texas law, especially on lower-income women and their families and communities of color. When discussing the Supreme Court’s ruling, some argued that the Court had used its “shadow” docket to rule without debate along ideological party lines, while others testified that the use of the docket was merely a part of any court’s judicial proceedings. close
