The U.S. Supreme Court said will hear arguments on Texas’ heartbeat bill Nov. 1, according to a Friday announcement.
The court granted certiorari to the case, Whole Woman’s Health et al. v. Jackson et al., on an expedited basis and will not block the Texas abortion law for the time being as litigation over the bill continues.
BREAKING: The Supreme Court is not immediately blocking the Texas law that bans most abortions, but has agreed to hear arguments in the case on Nov. 1. The justices said they will decide whether the federal government has the right to sue over the law. https://t.co/IUSBGPh8yY

The Texas Heartbeat Act bans most abortions after a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which occurs around 6 weeks after conception.
“The Supreme Court’s decision to allow the law to stay in effect until an expedited hearing will be held on November 1 is a victory for life,” Live Action president Lila Rose told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “I am optimistic that the Court will uphold this life saving law, and eliminate the horror of Roe from our public life once and for all after they hear Dobbs v. Jackson on December 1.”
