Major abortion providers have stopped offering the procedures in Texas after the state’s attorney general declared them illegal following Friday morning’s landmark US Supreme Court decision.

Whole Woman’s Health, which operates a nationwide chain of clinics in cities that include the Texas capital of Austin, scrambled to cancel hundreds of appointments at its four clinics around the state. Planned Parenthood also said it was putting abortion services on pause while its legal team reviews options.
