Many laws in the United States continue to receive national attention these days. One of them is the Texas Abortion Law. If you’re wondering why it’s crucial to talk about this law, here’s everything you should know.
Stringent Laws with No Exceptions
The Texas Abortion Law passed by the Supreme Court is incredibly stringent, with no room for flexibility. According to this law, all abortions are illegal and completely banned in the state. This means no pregnant woman has the right to get an abortion as soon as the doctors detect cardiac activity in the womb. In other words, women only have six weeks to make a life-changing decision.
Apart from the restricted timeline, the law offers no exceptions for women being impregnated after incest or rape. It’s safe to say that the Texas Abortion Law does in no way take a mother’s health and integrity into account.
Lawsuits by Planned Parenthood Organizations
Women in Texas feel isolated and suffocated by this abortion law. Therefore, it’s now being challenged through lawsuits by the leaders of Planned Parenthood in the state. Most people advocating planned parenthood and abortion think that it’s absurd how the Supreme Court allowed this law to pass in an environment where there’s a high need for awareness about planned parenthood.
Most people in Texas deem this law highly unconstitutional. As a result, the law continues to be challenged by organizations within and outside the state.
Resistance by the Locals
The biggest challenge this law is facing today is resistance by the Texas locals. People from various schools of thought are united in resisting this law because of how it harms the health and wellbeing of women in Texas.
We’re yet to see how the resistance and lawsuits will change the outcome of the law and how it’ll help other states with similar abortion laws.
