The 23-page, unanimous decision is a “devastating” setback for Texans, Alexis McGill Johnson, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Federation of America said following the decision.

“Over and over again the courts have failed Texans, who have been stripped of their fundamental right to abortion for more than six months now,” she said in a statement.
