US DOJ sues Texas regime over six-week abortion ban

Source: CNN

“The Biden Justice Department sued the state of Texas on Thursday over its new six-week abortion ban, saying the state law is unconstitutional. Announcing the lawsuit at a news conference in Washington, Attorney General Merrick Garland said the Texas law’s ‘unprecedented’ design seeks ‘to prevent women from exercising their constitutional rights by thwarting judicial review for as long as possible.’ ‘The act is clearly unconstitutional under longstanding Supreme Court precedent’ Garland said. … ‘The United States has the authority and responsibility to ensure that Texas cannot evade its obligations under the Constitution and deprive individuals of their constitutional rights by adopting a statutory scheme designed specifically to evade traditional mechanisms of federal judicial review,’ the lawsuit states.” (09/09/21)
