Caitlyn Jenner says she is pro-choice but supports Texas new abortion law

Caitlyn Jenner has said that though she is all for "a woman's right to choose", she also supports Texas' new, restrictive abortion law and the state's right to adopt it. Texas passed a law that bans abortion after six weeks. Reproductive rights activists have slammed the law, saying it is an attempt to get around Roe v.
