There has been a huge uproar from the people who are advocating abortion rights in the US after a bill on abortion was approved by state lawmakers in Texas. Abortion is now banned after six weeks of pregnancy according to Texas law, although most women are not aware that they are pregnant.
Lawyers on either side of the abortion debate had been watching on Wednesday whether the US Supreme Court could handle the Texas ban. The Texas law starts at midnight after the Supreme Court did not immediately rule that would ban most abortions after 6 weeks of pregnancy. A lack of initiative from the High Court has helped the Texas administration to implement the law successfully. This law initiates the most restrictive abortion in the US.
In 1973, the High Court took a decision to legalize abortion across the country on the landmark Roe vs Wade case. The Federal Courts have disconsolate similar bans in various conservative states in the US mentioning the Roe decision.
The US President Joe Biden commented on Wednesday that the strict law of Texas has blatantly violated the constitutional right settled for nearly half a century under the Roe vs Wade decision. He also told that the Texas law would remarkably damage women’s approach to the health care they need. It would harm that particular community on the basis of colour and also to the people who belong to the low-income groups.
However, the High Court is anticipated to rule the Texas matter taking it as an emergency. The High Court is also anticipated to consider a case summoning Mississippi’s ban on most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy.
