Texas Abortion Law Must Face a Legal Challenge Prepared by the Department of Justice


Share post:

The CNN White House official reported that US President Joe Biden’s Justice Department is preparing legal action to challenge Texas’ restrictive abortion law.

The man did not explain what the claim is based on; however, the department’s attorneys have been severely challenged to find legal recourse. The official announcement of the lawsuit is expected on Thursday.

A week ago, the United States Supreme Court rejected a request made by the clinics to block the entry into force of the Abortion Act, and since then, the Justice Department has been exploring the correct legal avenues to challenge the abortion ban in Texas.

Clinics and hospitals do not have the opportunity to obtain orders from the federal courts that block the application of the law, which was the objective of implementing this law.

The Texas legislature has recommended that all private citizens enforce the law by bringing private litigation against clinics and anyone else who assists a woman with an abortion after six weeks, rather than implementing criminal penalties for the abortions performed after the first heartbeats are detected in the fetus.

Texas clinics have stopped offering abortion services after six weeks of pregnancy, and there are even some that stopped offering them permanently after the law took effect.

The majority of the Supreme Court wrote, in an unsigned order, that although the clinics had raised serious doubts about the constitutionality of Texas law, they had not met a charge that would allow the court to block the law at the time because of to the complexity and novel issues of the procedure.

Zero comments from the Justice Department

On Monday, Merrick Garland, the attorney general, pledged to protect abortion clinics in Texas by enforcing a federal law that prohibits making threats against patients seeking reproductive health services and eliminating entrances to the clinics.

Garland said: “The department will support the federal police when an abortion clinic or reproductive health facility is attacked. We will not tolerate violence against those seeking to obtain or provide reproductive health services, physical obstruction, or property damage in violation of the FACE Law.”

For the first time since the beginning of President Joe Biden’s administration, the Wall Street Journal first reported on preparations to sue.

The media are still waiting for the statement from the White House Justice Department to know the motive for the lawsuit and the bases and arguments that they will use to advance against the Abortion Law that will be in effect in the state of Texas.
