Biden administration calls for SCOTUS to block Texas anti-abortion law – court filing

From RT:

The Biden administration has called on the US Supreme Court to block the implementation of Texas’ controversial law banning abortion after six weeks of pregnancy, according to a Monday court filing.

The Justice Department is seeking to block the measure from going into effect while the fight over its constitutionality continues in the courts. It has been in effect since September, absent a 48-hour period ordered by a district court.

The Biden administration filed on Monday to reverse a Thursday night ruling by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals that had permitted the law’s implementation to go forward.

The Justice Department announced a day later that it would petition the Supreme Court to prevent the law from taking effect, after previous efforts to delay its implementation failed. 

The law prohibits any abortion conducted after six weeks of pregnancy, a controversial timeline given that many women are not aware they are pregnant until later.
