DOJ Tells U.S. Postal Service Abortion-By-Mail Pills Are OK to Deliver | Houston Press

Because of Senate Bill 8, in response to the DOJ’s ruling, Texans can expect to see cases challenging the decision to take place in courts across the state.
According to Amy O’Donnell, public policy team member at Texas Alliance for Life, the opinion concentrates primarily on the services provided by the US Postal Service and their inability to be at fault for these deliveries but does not clear other organizations or individuals from providing these pills in state.
“The law remains in effect in Texas, meaning that anybody who sends those chemical abortion drugs to women in Texas, with the intent of them having an abortion using the medication, creates a criminal offense to stand trial and be held accountable in Texas,” O’Donnell said.
