BREAKING: Biden’s Dept of Justice Sues State of Texas Over Pro-Life Law

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.09.21

Attorney General Merrick Garland confirmed Thursday that the Department of Justice will sue the State of Texas after the Supreme Court allowed a pro-life bill to take effect; limiting most abortions after six-weeks of pregnancy.

“Last week, after the Supreme Court allowed Texas Senate Bill 8 to take effect, I said that the Justice Department was evaluating all options to protect the Constitutional rights of women and other persons. Today, after careful assessment of the facts and the law, the Justice Department has filed a lawsuit against the State of Texas,” said the Attorney General.

 

President Biden ripped the new Texas law last week, calling the legislation a “blatant violation of the Constitution.”

The bill bans the procedure if doctors can detect a fetal heartbeat.

“The Texas law is unusually drafted in that it forbids government officials from enforcing it, instead relying on the public to report allegations of abortions that do not comply with the law. The law calls for people bringing these claims to be awarded at least $10,000 if they are successful in court. Claims cannot be brought against women getting abortions, but they can be filed against those who perform them or assist women in getting them,” reports Fox News.

“This extreme Texas law blatantly violates the constitutional right established under Roe v. Wade and upheld as precedent for nearly half a century,” Biden said in a statement Wednesday.

“The Texas law will significantly impair women’s access to the health care they need, particularly for communities of color and individuals with low incomes,” Biden’s statement continued. “And, outrageously, it deputizes private citizens to bring lawsuits against anyone who they believe has helped another person get an abortion, which might even include family members, health care workers, front desk staff at a health care clinic, or strangers with no connection to the individual.”

BIDEN: Texas Abortion Law Impairs ‘Women’s Access to Health Care’

President Biden ripped a new Texas law Wednesday that would effectively prohibit nearly all abortions after six weeks of pregnancy, calling the legislation a “blatant violation of the Constitution.”

The bill bans the procedure if doctors can detect a fetal heartbeat.

“The Texas law is unusually drafted in that it forbids government officials from enforcing it, instead relying on the public to report allegations of abortions that do not comply with the law. The law calls for people bringing these claims to be awarded at least $10,000 if they are successful in court. Claims cannot be brought against women getting abortions, but they can be filed against those who perform them or assist women in getting them,” reports Fox News.

??????: AOC Says ‘Republicans Have Overturned Roe v Wade’

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.02.21

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rushed to Twitter Wednesday to falsely claim Republicans have ‘overturned’ Roe V Wade after the Supreme Court refused to hear a case regarding Texas’ latest pro-life law.

“Republicans promised to overturn Roe v Wade, and they have. Democrats can either abolish the filibuster and expand the court, or do nothing as millions of peoples’ bodies, rights, and lives are sacrificed for far-right minority rule. This shouldn’t be a difficult decision,” posted the far-left Representative.

AOC was referring to a 5-4 vote this week that allows Texas to enforce it’s so-called ‘Heartbeat’ Abortion Law. The bill effectively bans all abortions after doctors can detect a fetal heartbeat, typically occurring after six weeks of pregnancy.

Critics of the legislation claim many women are unaware of their pregnancies until that time.

 

“The court’s order is stunning,” liberal Justice Sonia Sotomayor wrote in a dissenting opinion.

“Presented with an application to enjoin a flagrantly unconstitutional law engineered to prohibit women from exercising their constitutional rights and evade judicial scrutiny, a majority of justices have opted to bury their heads in the sand.”
