Segment 4 – Texas Supreme Court rules against providers in abortion ban case
The Texas Supreme Court on Friday ruled that state officials do not have the ability to enforce the state’s six-week abortion ban, effectively ending providers’ case challenging the law. Live Action’s Christina Bennett explains.

Christina Bennett is a pro-life missionary and activist, who writes and speaks on behalf of the cause. She is a correspondent with Live Action. Her passion stems from her powerful personal story. Christina was moments away from being aborted, but a miraculous encounter with a stranger changed her mothers mind and saved Christina’s life. Upon hearing this story in her 20s, Christina dedicated her life to ending abortion, serving in various leadership roles for pro-life organizations, including at the Justice House of Prayer in D.C., then as a Communications Director at an advocacy organization, and most recently as a Client Services Manager at a crisis pregnancy center. She testified for the cause at two congressional hearings and in the Oval Office.
