Supreme Court to Decide Fate of Roe v. Wade in Upcoming Term

The Washington Times: "Most recently, Texas enacted a law banning abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detected, usually around six weeks. The law allows private citizens — not the state — to sue abortion providers for violating the law.

The high court refused to block its enforcement, which began Sept. 1.

Texas abortion providers — and the Justice Department — have challenged that legislation, arguing it is unconditional.

Legal experts said the way the justices rule in the Mississippi case could be a factor on whether they’ll reconsider the Texas legislation.
