(Worthy News) – Abortion providers and pro-choice advocates asked the Supreme Court on Monday to block a Texas law going into effect on Wednesday that bans abortion after six weeks and allows private citizens to sue abortion providers for violating the law.
The pro-choice activists said Texas’s new legislation, which is set to go into effect Sept. 1, makes it so any private citizen — including pro-life activists — can sue individuals providing an abortion in violation of the six-week ban.
The Center for Reproductive Rights, the American Civil Liberties Union and allied groups launched the lawsuit earlier this year to block the law, saying it would force abortion providers to spend massive amounts of money defending themselves in court and will subject them to harassment.
