DOJ To Ask Supreme Court To Block Texas Abortion Law
October 15, 2021
The Justice Department is asking the Supreme Court to block Texas's controversial new abortion law.
This comes just hours after a federal appeals court ruled that it can remain in effect during the legal challenge.
The Texas law is the most stringent in the nation as it bans abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected. It also allows anybody to sue a provider if they feel a rule is being broken.
The Supreme Court is already set to hear a different abortion case in December, stemming from a Mississippi law.
