The Justice Department is asking the Supreme Court to block Texas's controversial new abortion law.
This comes just hours after a federal appeals court ruled that it can remain in effect during the legal challenge.
The Texas law is the most stringent in the nation as it bans abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected. It also allows anybody to sue a provider if they feel a rule is being broken.
The Supreme Court is already set to hear a different abortion case in December, stemming from a Mississippi law.
