Texas law that would ban most abortions set to go into effect Wednesday following canceled hearing

Alaw banning most abortions in Texas is set to go into effect Wednesday, following the cancelation of a hearing on the issue by the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals. 

In May, Republican Gov. Greg Abbott signed legislation – state Senate Bill 8 – that would prohibit abortions following the detection of a fetal heartbeat, which can occur as early as six weeks into a pregnancy.

The law will also allow members of the public to file suit against doctors they believe have violated the law. 

Nearly two-dozen abortion providers were looking to block the law from going into effect. But Friday night, the court canceled a hearing planned for Monday, at which the providers had hoped to present their argument. The ban would reportedly impact close to 90% of the abortions that currently take place in Texas. 

On Saturday evening, the providers filed an emergency motion requesting that the appeals court issue a temporary stay or send the matter back to a lower court. The 5th Circuit Court, one of the most conservative in the country, denied the request Sunday afternoon.
