Supreme Court Won't Reject Texas Abortion Law; Will Consider Legal Arguments over Law on Nov.1

 The U.S. Supreme Court today (October 22, 2021) said it will consider legal arguments over the Texas abortion law that is the nation's most restrictive, on November 1, and that the law will remain in effect, according to the Washington Post website.

The court granted an expedited review of what is called S.B.8, which the Biden administration in a filing today said "has virtually eliminated abortion in Texas after six weeks of pregnancy."

The decision sets up a momentous term for abortion rights in the Supreme Court. The justices on December 1 will consider a Mississippi law that bans most abortions after 15 weeks, far earlier than the court's precedents currently allow.
