Took a step back for the rights of women. The law banning all abortions after the sixth week of pregnancy went into effect on Wednesday, September 1 in Texas. Several organizations defending women’s right to abortion hastily seized the Supreme Court on Monday, forcing it to block the speech or the federal courts, but the High Court has yet to make any decision.
If the Supreme Court, which has a Conservative majority (six out of nine judges) does not rule against the law – it will not have to rule before it comes into force – Texas will become one of the most regulated abortions in the United States.
This law prohibits abortion once the fetal heartbeat is felt, although many women are not yet aware that they are pregnant.
It makes the majority of abortions illegal – even in cases of sex or rape – in this conservative southern state, according to family planning systems, more than 85% of women have abortions after six weeks of pregnancy.
The law was signed in May by Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott as part of a conservative U.S.-led offensive against the right to abortion.
But Texas has stated its law differently: the implementation of this measure is not by the authorities, but “Exclusively” Citizens are encouraged to bring a civil complaint against companies or individuals who assist women in performing abortions.
The text states that citizens who start the procedure will receive at least $ 10,000 “Compensation” Critics of the text see it as A if guilt is proven “Main” Condemnation, but its defenders have already set up forms to file on the Internet “Anonymous Information”.
The Supreme Court entry of three judges appointed by former President Donald Trump has encouraged those opposed to abortion. This is due to the jurisdiction to review the fallout of the Mississippi law banning most abortions after the 15th week of pregnancy. It may have the opportunity to begin to unravel its legitimacy by returning to the criteria of “credibility of the fetus” that have been put forward so far.
