Austin, Texas The next round in the fight over Texas' abortion restrictions begins this week.

Planned Parenthood is challenging the law in federal court and a state agency is transforming the law into regulations, calling for comments on new rules through Oct. 27.

Planned Parenthood wants a judge to stop enforcement of the new abortion restrictions before they come into force Oct. 29. The Texas attorney general argues that the law is constitutional.

The law restricts how, when and where a woman can obtain an abortion in Texas.

If the law goes into effect as proposed, abortion clinics in Fort Worth, Harlingen, Killeen, Lubbock, McAllen and Waco will have to close by next Tuesday. No abortion clinics will be operating east of Waco or west of Interstate 35.
