Texas became on Wednesday the largest state with a law that bans abortions before many women even know they are pregnant – without exceptions for rape or incest.
There is also unique provision in the new law that essentially leaves enforcement to private citizens through lawsuits against doctors or anyone who helps a woman get an abortion, including nurses, front desk staff or even the person who drove the patient to the abortion appointment.
Republican Governor Greg Abbott signed the bill Wednesday that puts Texas in line with more than a dozen other states that ban abortions after the detection of a fetal heartbeat, which can happen as early as six weeks into the pregnancy.
Federal courts have so far mostly blocked the measures from taking effect.
The new Texas law will go into effect in September if it is not first stopped by the courts.
The Supreme Court, however, agreed this week to take up a Mississippi law that bans abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy.
Abortion rights activists worry that a ruling favorable to the state could lay the groundwork for allowing even more abortion restrictions, including so-called fetal heartbeat bills.

Texas’ version of the heartbeat law is unique in that it prohibits state officials from enforcing the ban.
Instead, it allows anyone - even someone outside Texas - to sue an abortion provider or anyone else who may have helped someone get an abortion after the limit, and seek financial damages of up to $10,000 per defendant.
Critics say that provision would allow abortion opponents to flood the courts with lawsuits to harass doctors, patients, nurses, domestic violence counselors, those who drive women to clinics or even a parent who paid for a procedure.
Texas law currently bans abortion after 20 weeks, with exceptions for a woman with a life-threatening medical condition or if the fetus has a severe abnormality.
The new law could ban an abortion as soon as six weeks into the pregnancy and would not have an exception for pregnancies that are a result of incest or rape.
More than 90 percent of abortions take place in the first 13 weeks of a woman’s pregnancy, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The Supreme Court will probably hear the Mississippi case in the fall, with a decision likely in spring 2022.
It will be the first abortion-related case heard by the latest addition to the court, Justice Amy Coney Barrett, whome pro-abortion activists claim could be a threat to a woman’s right to choose.
During her confirmation, critics and even some progressive lawmakers claimed Coney Barrett, a devout Catholic, would not be able to act as an impartial in certain cases due to her religion. They even insisted she recuse herself from some cases like those involving the death penalty or abortion.

‘It is appalling that in defiance of public opinion and public health, state politicians remain committed to controlling our bodies,’ Planned Parenthood Action Fund President Alexis McGill Johnson said in a statement on Wednesday.
Texas’ new law will allow citizens to bring a civil lawsuit against anyone who ‘knowingly engages in conduct that aids or abets the performance or inducement of an abortion, including paying for or reimbursing the costs of an abortion through insurance or otherwise,’ if the abortion violates the provisions of the law.
In an open letter earlier this month, some 200 Texas physicians voiced concern that the bill would expose doctors to the risk of ‘frivolous lawsuits that threaten our ability to provide healthcare.’
‘Regardless of our personal beliefs about abortion, as licensed physicians in Texas, we implore you to not weaponize the judicial branch against us to make a political point,’ the letter said.
