Biden’s administration has once again asked courts to stop a Texas law which bans abortions in Texas since September.
This was the latest request that came in Monday night. Clinics across Oklahoma, Louisiana, Texas and other states continue serving Texas patients who travel hundreds upon thousands of miles to get care.
Senate Bill 8 is the law that imposes the most severe abortion restrictions in the United States. It bans abortions from the moment heart activity is detected. This usually happens within six weeks, before many women even know they’re pregnant.
After Texas appealed quickly, a federal judge temporarily suspended the law.
