Last week, Alamo Women’s Reproductive Services owner Braid wrote in a Washington Post article that he had contravened the law. He proffered an abortion to a woman in her early phases of gestation. He wrote that “on the morning of September 6, I provided an abortion to a woman who, though still in her first trimester, was beyond the state’s new limit. I acted because I had a duty of care to this patient, as I do for all patients, and because she has a fundamental right to receive this care.”

2 Lawsuits

Two lawsuits were filed against the accused physician. One suit was from a Chicago man and the other one was filed by the Arkansas complainant currently undergoing home confinement alongside serving a 15-year prison sentence.
