If she drives to New Mexico, or elsewhere, and has the abortion then she risks losing standing in the case. The Texas Supreme Court already has a similar case in front of it and the state is arguing against the plaintiffs standing as their pregnancies have already ended one way or the other.

Either the court is going to have to clarify what constitutes exceptions to the law.
