Two of the primary providers in Texas ceased performing abortions on Friday after the Attorney General warned they could be prosecuted immediately.

While the decision to overturn Roe v. Wade triggered a 2021 Texas law banning nearly all abortions after a 30-day waiting period, Paxton’s statement caused abortion clinics to cease operations Friday.

“We must pause abortion services at our separate organizations while our legal teams continue to review today’s devastating ruling and how it impacts and triggers existing Texas laws, including total abortion bans,” Jeffrey Hons, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood South Texas said in a statement published by the Tribune.

The news outlet reported that Whole Woman’s Health temporarily halted abortion services in four Texas locations. The group is reported to be the nation’s largest abortion provider.
