Senator Glenn Hegar's statement regarding Federal Judge Yeakel's ruling on challenge to Pro-Life legislation

"This legislation plays a critically important role in improving safety standards for women and protecting the lives of unborn children. I am extremely disappointed in Judge Yeakel's opinion, which delays the implementation of certain provisions of HB 2. Earlier today, the Attorney General's office appealed the court's ruling. I have absolute confidence that they will continue the legal fight to ensure the enactment of this legislation in its entirety and will ultimately be successful in their efforts."
