The Heartbeat Act went into effect in Texas on Sept. 1, 2021, and prohibited abortions after a heartbeat was detected, which usually occurs at six weeks into a pregnancy. This bill marked the first time a law protecting unborn children before viability stayed in effect since the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision.
