The Texas abortion law is back in effect following a ruling by an appeals court. On Friday, the U-S Fifth Court of Appeals granted a stay of a temporary block of the law by a federal judge earlier in the week. When filing the request for the stay, the State of Texas said the block “violates the separation of powers at every turn.” According to the Texas Tribune, the abortion law can be enforced until Tuesday, when a response from the Justice Department is due in the case.
