The attorney general of Texas, Ken Paxton, assured this Friday that abortion is “now illegal” in this state and announced that his department will declare this date as a holiday to celebrate the decision made by the Supreme of the United States to revoke the protection of the right to abortion.

“Praise the Lord, abortion is now illegal in Texas. And today I close my office and declare an annual holiday in memory of the 70 million lives lost due to abortion,” Paxton said in a message on Twitter as soon as the decision was known. of the Supreme.

Paxton stressed that abortion is “now” illegal in this territory despite the fact that the law that Texas has approved does not make the prohibition of this reproductive right effective for another thirty days.

“The Supreme Court has just overturned Roe and Casey (the two decisions that protected the right to abortion) and ends the most legally and morally corrupt era in the history of the United States,” Paxton said in his message on Twitter.

Governed by Republicans, Texas is one of the states that had the most restrictions on the right to abortion, and made pregnancy interruptions within its territory increasingly difficult.

With a view to the expected sentence of the Supreme Court, the state legislature had already approved a law according to which the abortion ban would be effective thirty days after the ruling of the highest US judicial instance.
