Texas Supreme Court Upholds Heartbeat Bill

Objectivity 3.4 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.9

Texas Supreme Court unanimously ended the abortion industry’s challenge to the state’s 6-week abortion ban. “Texas law does not authorize the state-agency executives to enforce the Act’s requirements, either directly or indirectly,” said the court, so abortion groups could not block the law by suing them. Pro-life bills using private enforcement mechanisms to avoid legal defeats have been introduced in at least nine other states.
