AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — One Texas woman traveled nearly 1,000 miles to Colorado for an abortion. Others are driving four hours to New Mexico. And in Houston, clinics that typically perform more than 100 abortions in a week are down to a few a day.

Two weeks after the nation's strictest abortion law took effect in Texas, new court filings showed the deepening and swift impact of the state's near-total ban on abortion. A federal judge on Wednesday set an Oct. 1 hearing over the Biden administration's efforts to block the law known as Senate Bill 8. One network of clinics in Texas, which performed more than 9,000 abortions in 2020, said it has so far turned away more than 100 patients.
