Court Upholds Texas Abortion Ban


A panel of Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals judges ruled Texas can include most abortions in its list of non-medically necessary surgeries.

This overrules a previous decision that said abortions could be performed while the ban's legality was determined in the courts.
The U.S. Supreme Court could soon tackle an abortion crackdown in Texas. The state deemed the procedure a non-essential medical service amid the coronavirus crisis. CBS News reporter Kate Smith joins CBSN to break down the latest developments.
