A Texas doctor who publicly said he had provided an abortion beyond the limit set by the state’s new law is now facing a lawsuit.

The Washington Post reports that Alan Braid, a physician in San Antonio who wrote a column saying he had defied Texas’s extreme new anti-abortion law, is being sued by an Arkansas man who said he wanted to test the constitutionality of the Texas measure. The man bringing the lawsuit is Oscar Stilley, a former lawyer who was convicted of tax fraud in 2012, the Post reported. He is currently on home confinement for his previous conviction, the Wall Street Journal reported.

I am taking a personal risk. But it’s something I believe in strongly. I have daughters, granddaughters and nieces. I believe abortion is an essential part of healthcare. I have spent the last 50 years treating and helping patients. I can’t just sit back and watch us return to 1972.”
