The Texas Supreme Court on Friday blocked a lower court order that permitted some abortions.

The decision is the latest development in a wild couple of weeks for the state of Texas.

On Friday, June 24, a majority of the US Supreme Court voted to overturn Roe v. Wade, ending constitutionally-protected abortion rights across the country.

The decision resulted in so-called “trigger laws” in nearly two dozen states going into effect.

TEXAS ABORTION BAN TEMPORARILY BLOCKED BY JUDGE

One of these laws, signed by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, prevented abortions st the sixth week of pregnancy. The law is commonly referred to as a “heartbeat law” as it outlaws abortions once a heartbeat is detected in a fetus.

Abortion service providers throughout Texas were then forced to cancel abortion operations and alert those who had appointments for an abortion that they were unable to provide the service.

Abortion rights demonstrators and an anti-abortion demonstrator argue after a rally for Reproductive Freedom in Austin, Texas, on Sunday, June 26, 2022.

Almost immediately after the law went into effect, though, some abortion providers rushed to keep the practice legal.

And their efforts were initially successful when a Houston judge issued an order earlier this week reassuring doctors and abortion service providers they would still be allowed to resume abortions.

Abortion rights demonstrators gather near the State Capitol in Austin, Texas, June 25, 2022.

But, on Friday, abortions were outlawed again – for the second time in a week when the Texas Supreme Court temporarily blocked the lower court’s decision.
