From Texas Public Radio:
This report is part of the TPR series Planes, Trains and Automobiles: Evading the Texas Abortion Ban.
It’s 2:45 in the morning, and the Sunset Limited is pulling out of Amtrak’s San Antonio station heading west.
The passenger train is just one of many ways that Texans are traveling to New Mexico where abortion remains legal.
Since September 1, 2021, when the Texas fetal heartbeat law went into effect, many pregnant women in Texas have been forced to flee the state to find abortion care.
