Texas Bans Abortions As Early As Six Weeks

Texas has banned abortions in cases as early as six weeks
The Texas Tribune is reporting Gov. Greg Abbott has signed a measure into law that will ban abortions in Texas as early as six weeks.

The signing of the bill opens a new frontier in the battle over abortion restrictions as first-of-its-kind legal provisions — intended to make the law harder to block — are poised to be tested in the courts.

Abortion rights advocates have promised to challenge the new law, which they consider one of the most extreme nationwide and the strictest in Texas since the landmark Roe v. Wade decision.

It would amount to an outright ban on abortions, as the six-week cutoff is two weeks after a missed menstrual cycle.

Bolding is mine.

The new law has no exceptions in cases of rape or incest.

The new law goes into effect in September.
