It's hard to imagine a news story more alarming than the passage of Texas' new abortion law, which amounts to an almost complete ban on the procedure many thought safe under Roe v. Wade.

Compounding the concern, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear a suit seeking to block the law while its legality is determined in court. It's also an open question whether the Justice Department's challenge to the legislation will be effective.

Little surprise then that the blow Texas' Republican leadership dealt to women's choice was the subject of six of the Current's 10 most-read stories of the week.
