An appeals court overturned a decision banning enforcement of abortion restrictions in Texas.

The law, signed into effect in September by Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott, prohibits abortion from the moment a fetus’s heartbeat can be detected for the first time. This can be detected by ultrasound very early, from the sixth week of pregnancy, when many women do not realize that they are pregnant. Physicians who violate this provision can be prosecuted, and those who assist law enforcement (filing a complaint) are eligible for $10,000 in damages.

Judge from Texas Robert Bateman on Wednesday give judgment Stop enforcement of the law. The state then appealed to the New Orleans Court of Appeals.

Meanwhile, the Washington government has also sued the law, with a New Orleans court on hold pending a decision on that case.
