    Arguments on Texas Abortion Law to be Heard by Supreme Court Justices

    [Follow our live coverage of the Supreme Court’s hearing on the Texas Abortion Law.] WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court is hearing arguments on Monday in challenges to a Texas law that has sharply curtailed abortions in the state. The law, which went into effect on Sept. 1 after the court declined to block it in a bitterly divided 5-to-4 decision, was drafted to evade review in federal court, a goal the state has so far achieved. The law, which bans most abortions after about six weeks and includes no exceptions for pregnancies resulting from rape or incest, has caused

    WASHINGTON — A federal judge on Wednesday granted the Justice Department’s request to halt enforcement of the recently passed Texas law that bans nearly all abortions in the state while the legal battle over the statute makes its way through the federal courts. In his 113-page ruling, Robert L. Pitman, a Federal District Court judge in Austin, sided with the Biden administration, which had sued to halt a law that has changed the landscape of the abortion fight and further fueled the national debate over whether abortion will remain legal across the country. Judge Pitman used sharp language to
