October 2013: A U.S. district judge issues a permanent injunction preventing two key parts of a controversial Texas abortion law from going into effect, specifically requirements that doctors obtain admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the clinic at which they're providing abortion services and usage controls on RU486, a drug that induces abortions. The bill attracted headlines in July because it originally failed to gain approval because of a Democratic filibuster led by state Sen. Wendy Davis. Texas Gov. Rick Perry then called the legislature into a second special session to continue consideration of the bill, and it ultimately passed.
