Texas' controversial anti-abortion law was back in effect 48 hours after Texas federal judge Robert Pitman suspended it.
 
The decision was made in record time by the Texas Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, one of the most conservative courts in the country, which also denied a repeal of the law weeks earlier.
 
With this, SB-8, which prohibits the termination of pregnancy after six weeks is back in effect in the state, and goes against the ruling of the federal law that indicates abortions can be performed before up to 24 weeks into a pregnancy.  
At this point, the Department of Justice has until Oct. 12 to appeal the decision.
 
The law, also known as the heartbeat law, has been controversial, as it limits the possibilities of a person to have an abortion only up to six weeks, when the fetal heartbeat can be heard through ultrasound.
