Texas Supreme Court halts first legal challenge to S.A. abortion amendment

The Texas Supreme Court decided San Antonio voters will get a say on a charter amendment decriminalizing abortion after it brought a legal challenge from an anti-abortion group to a halt.

Driving the news: Any challenges to the amendment known as Proposition A on the May 6 city ballot must wait until after the election, the Texas Supreme Court ruled 6-3 Friday.

Why it matters: San Antonio will be the first Texas city to vote on protecting abortion, organizers have said, after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade last year, triggering a state law that prohibits abortion in Texas.

Catch up fast: The amendment made it onto the ballot after organizers gathered more than the required 20,000 signatures.
