Texas “heartbeat law” restricting abortion takes effect
September 01, 2021
CWN Editor's Note: A new state law banning abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detectable goes into effect in Texas on September 1. Abortion advocates have blocked the implementation of similar legislation in other states by filing suit against the government officials who would enforce the law. The Texas measure relies on private parties to enforce the law, avoiding such pre-emptive suits.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
