AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The Texas Supreme Court has put on hold a judge’s ruling that approved an abortion for a pregnant woman whose fetus has a fatal diagnosis. The order Friday throws into limbo an unprecedented challenge to one of the most restrictive bans in the U.S. The order by the all-Republican court came more than 30 hours after Kate Cox, a 31-year-old mother of two from the Dallas area, received a temporary restraining order from a lower court judge. Cox is represented by the Center for Reproductive Rights, whose attorneys say they will not share her abortion plans, citing concerns for her safety. In a filing with the Texas Supreme Court on Friday afternoon, her attorneys indicated she was still pregnant.
