Present US administration says it will block a restrictive Texas law that imposes a near-total ban on abortion.—

The Supreme Court cited procedural issues when deciding against intervening to block it last month.

The law bans abortions after what anti-abortion campaigners call a foetal heartbeat is detected, a notion disputed by medical authorities.

The law – which makes an exception for a documented medical emergency but not for cases of rape or incest – gives any individual the right to sue doctors who perform an abortion past the six-week point.

Critics have said this provision – which provides monetary awards for those whose lawsuits are successful – lets people act as anti-abortion bounty hunters.

President Biden has vowed to fight the Texas ban, citing Americans’ constitutional rights.
