The re-enactment of a controversial law was decided by the New Orleans Federal Court of Appeals, allowing Texas to ban the majority of abortions in the specific US state.

This law, which entered into force on 1 September, prohibits abortion as soon as the heart of the fetus is heard, ie at about six weeks of pregnancy, when the majority of women are unaware that she is pregnant.

This law does not provide for exceptions for pregnancies resulting from rape or incest. also allows ordinary citizens to enforce the ban, providing for a fee of at least $ 10,000 if they succeed in suing anyone who helped have an abortion after a heart attack.

Critics of the law complain that this provision of the law allows people to act against abortions as bounty hunters.

The law was temporarily suspended Wednesday by a Texas federal judge following an appeal by the Joe Biden government.

Judge Robert Pitman in Austin had temporarily suspended the Texas abortion law while the lawsuit was still being considered.

The Ministry of Justice of USA argued that the law prevents women from exercising their constitutional right to terminate a pregnancy, which was recognized by the Supreme Court in 1973 in the Rowe v. Wade case, which legalized abortion in a national level.
