Federal Appeals Court Reinstates Texas Abortion Law

A federal appeals court has issued a ruling temporarily reinstating Texas’ abortion law, reversing a decision from a lower court on Wednesday that temporarily blocked it. The law, signed by Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX), prohibits abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected, around the sixth week of pregnancy, and includes a unique enforcement mechanism, allowing private citizens to sue medical providers and any other person who facilities an abortion for $10,000. The law includes no exceptions for rape or incest.

Well, guess some people are going to have to go back to being celibate.
