Texas one of many places that have what are known as “trigger laws” might have to temporarily dash its hopes to outlaw abortion in its state. According to reports out Wednesday morning, a Texas judge has temporarily blocked the state’s trigger law from going into effect which it was due to do so in just two month’s time. This comes after Attorney General Ken Paxton attempted to celebrate the overturning of Roe vs Wade as a national holiday.
Part of the challenge came from the ACLU which argued in court that such bans before 1973 or those that were written around that time would be unenforceable simply because modern life has changed so much compared to that time
It would be impossible. Texas, however, maintains that it hopes to stand by a 1925 law that it actually had on the books already that criminalized abortion and those who performed such services. The law was abandoned after Roe vs Wade was initially passed and then revisited as Texas sought to turn back the clocks.
