A judge in Texas has temporarily granted a pregnant woman’s request for an abortion in light of serious risks posed to her health including her ability to have children ever again should she be forced to give birth to a fetus with a rare fatal genetic condition.

Kate Cox, 20 weeks pregnant with a fetus that has a lethal condition known as trisomy 18, learned last month that when she gives birth it is likely the baby will be stillborn or die moments afterward.
