There is a legal battle going on in the United States. On Friday, October 8, two days after the controversial speech was blocked, the Federal Court of Appeals allowed Texas to overturn legislation banning majority abortions. This strict control law, which came into force on September 1, prohibits abortion as soon as the fetal heartbeat is detected within six weeks of pregnancy, leaving most women unaware that they are pregnant.

The law was temporarily blocked by a Texas federal judge on Wednesday following a complaint from the government of Joe Biden. Abortions six weeks later then resumed at state clinics. The Attorney General of Texas appealed to the Federal Court in New Orleans, which is considered one of the most conservative in the country, which ruled in his favor.

In all likelihood, the U.S. federal government will challenge the decision of the Court of Appeals in the U.S. Supreme Court. The latter was guaranteed in 1973, in its iconic Row Wade judgment, the right of women to perform abortions. She clarified that this right applies until infertility is possible, i.e. up to 22 weeks of pregnancy.
