AUSTIN — The Texas Tribune reported that a Texas man filed a lawsuit against three friends of his ex-wife after she allegedly ended her pregnancy, claiming wrongful death and seeking more than $1 million in damages. 

Statement from Wendy Davis, Senior Advisor, Planned Parenthood Texas Votes:

“We are outraged, but we are not surprised. It has been clear for years that anti-abortion extremists plan to use the judicial system as an instrument of fear and intimidation. This lawsuit is a direct result of the dangerous policies championed by Governor Greg Abbott and his supporters. It is state-sanctioned harassment and we will not stand for it. No one should face fear or the threat of prosecution when seeking reproductive health care.”
