The U.S. Supreme Court sent the case over Texas’ six-week abortion ban to a federal appeals court Thursday, just six days after the justices declined to overturn the ban while allowing opponents to continue with part of their challenge.
The high court sent the case to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which has repeatedly backed the law, Bloomberg News reported. The move rejected a request by clinics and doctors to send the matter directly to a trial judge who once blocked the law.
Justice Neil Gorsuch signed the court’s order that granted the request of abortion clinics for the court to act speedily.
