Federal court REINSTATES Texas ‘heartbeat’ bill banning abortion after six weeks


The Texas ‘heartbeat’ bill banning abortion after six weeks of gestation has been reinstated after a federal appeals court suspended a lower court ruling banning the law.

The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday ruled in favor of Texas and halted U.S Judge Robert Pitman’s restriction on the abortion ban. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton appealed Pitman’s decision, according to Fox News.

Paxton took to Twitter to celebrate the news, writing, Great news tonight, The Fifth Circuit has granted an administrative stay on Senate Bill 8. I will fight federal overreach at every turn.”
