The San Antonio Current reports:
A Texas law that bans abortions before many women are even aware they’re pregnant will likely take effect Wednesday, after a federal appeals court canceled a hearing where women’s health groups sought to block the measure.
On Friday night, the conservative 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals scrapped a Monday hearing at which more than 20 abortion providers planned to argue that the new law — arguably the nation’s strictest — would create legal disarray by allowing virtually anyone to sue a person they claim violated the law, the Texas Tribune reports. Some have called the measure a virtual ban on the medical procedure.
