UH Law Expert Available to Discuss Latest Abortion Ruling from Texas Supreme Court

Seth Chandler

Seth Chandler, Law Foundation Professor of Law at the University of Houston Law Center.

Dec. 14, 2023Seth Chandler, constitutional law professor at the University of Houston Law Center, is available for expert commentary on the recent ruling by the Texas Supreme Court in Cox v. State of Texas, in which the court said a Texas woman did not qualify for a medical exception to the state’s abortion ban to terminate her pregnancy, as well as how the ruling could impact other state legislatures considering abortion bans in a post-Dobbs climate.

Chandler says, “The national implications are that it suggests that the legislature can draft a pretty vague statute and courts may not feel any reason to clarify outside of a criminal trial of a doctor accused of an unlawful abortion.”
