A federal judge on Wednesday blocked a controversial Texas law banning abortions after about six weeks of pregnancy.
U.S. District Judge Robert Pitman’s ruling said, “A person’s right under the Constitution to choose to obtain an abortion prior to fetal viability is well established.” It added that “depriving citizens of this right” would be “flagrantly unconstitutional.”
The order follows the Biden administration’s challenge to the ban and will temporarily cease the most restrictive abortion law in the country, which the Supreme Court narrowly allowed to take effect about a month ago.
