Texas vs. Abortion? What the Supreme Court’s Ruling Means

By Kevin Vance. The Supreme Court ruled on Friday that the Texas Heartbeat Act may remain in effect for now. The Texas law allows private parties to sue abortion providers who perform abortions after an unborn baby’s heartbeat can be detected. Abortionists are prohibited from recovering legal fees, even if a future court rules that the Texas Heartbeat Act is unconstitutional.
