Since this is not a medically necessary procedure and health insurance would not cover it. Who pays for this procedure and the doctors time. More to the point Texas has lousy insurance coverage and a high rate of poverty. Does this mean if a woman cannot afford this extra procedure that it is defacto denial of a legal medical procedure?

Oh hell no, the state of Texas is not paying for them! Last I heard, they would cost the woman around 300-400$.

Indeed, one more paving stone on the road to Fascism, as stated above. This will never stand up in higher courts. It’s a battle the fundies are not going to ultimately win, no matter how long it takes. We women simply are not going to stand for a bunch of radical religious freaks taking our rights to govern our own bodies.
