Just before midnight on Wednesday evening, the Supreme Court rejected a challenge to a Texas law that prohibits the abortion of an unborn baby once a heartbeat can be detected.

The 5-4 decision came down along ideological lines, with Chief Justice John Roberts and the Court’s three liberal justices dissenting.

The case arrived at the high court after abortion providers in the state submitted an appeal for an injunction on enforcement of the law, which had already been denied prior by a New Orleans federal appeals court.

As reasoning for dismissing the opportunity to examine the case, the majority opinion explained that it is unclear whether the Supreme Court has the power to “issue an injunction against state judges asked to decide a lawsuit under Texas’s law.”

An appointee of former President George Bush, Roberts split with his conservative colleagues in favor of blocking the ban but acknowledged that many questions regarding the technicalities of the law still remain.
