    Texas abortion law: Biden's DOJ asks judge to intervene
    Strictest abortion law in country went into effect Sept. 1 in Texas after being upheld in 5-4 decision by U.S. Supreme Court

    The Tense Politics of a Texas Abortion Law
    Both the left and right want to politicize the courts.
    The U.S. Department of Justice late Tuesday asked a federal judge in Texas to temporarily halt the controversial new state law that bans abortions after about six weeks. 
    [/color][/font][/size][/color]The emergency motion seeking a temporary restraining order comes days after the DOJ sued Texas over the law, claiming it was enacted to "prevent women from exercising their constitutional rights." 
    The law went into effect on Sept. 1 after being upheld in a 5-4 decision by the U.S. Supreme Court. It is the strictest abortion law in the country. Critics say many women don’t yet know they’re pregnant at six weeks – around the time when a fetal heartbeat can first be detected – and the law makes no exceptions for rape or incest. 
    "It’s clearly unconstitutional," Attorney General Merrick Garland said last Thursday. "The obvious and expressly acknowledged intention of this statutory scheme is to prevent women from exercising their constitutional rights."

    The Texas Heartbeat Act, or S.B. 8, was signed by Republican Gov. Greg Abbott in May and empowers private citizens to enforce it by allowing them to sue anyone who allegedly helps a woman get an abortion illegally. 
    DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE SUES TEXAS OVER ABORTION LAW: ‘CLEARLY UNCONSTITUTIONAL’ 
    "Texas devised an unprecedented scheme that seeks to deny women and providers the ability to challenge [the law] in federal court," the department wrote. "This attempt to shield a plainly unconstitutional law from review cannot stand."

    The DOJ argued the law is in conflict with Roe v. Wade and "a woman’s right to terminate her pregnancy before viability."
    In response to last week's lawsuit, Abbott's press secretary Renae Eze said, "The most precious freedom is life itself. Texas passed a law that ensures that the life of every child with a heartbeat will be spared from the ravages of abortion. Unfortunately, President Biden and his Administration are more interested in changing the national narrative from their disastrous Afghanistan evacuation and reckless open border policies instead of protecting the innocent unborn. We are confident that the courts will uphold and protect that right to life."

  • I must say, hearing that Texas has "the most strict abortion law in the country" -- out of 50 states -- certainly makes me proud to be a Texan (for the past 17 years at least).

    Actually tomorrow will make exactly 17 years since I moved to Texas. Well over a third of my life.

    And my wife and kids are all native Texans.

  • Judge rejects Biden’s attempt:



    Judge rejects DOJ move to block Texas abortion law
    The DOJ had asked the judge to grant a temporary restraining in an effort to block the state from enforcing the law

    federal judge denied a Department of Justice request to block enforcement of the controversial Texas abortion law.
    [/size][/color]"[T]his case presents complex, important questions of law that merit a full opportunity for the parties to present their positions to the Court," wrote United States District Judge Robert Pitman in a one page decision Thursday. "Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that the United States’ Opposed Motion for Expedited Briefing Schedule, (Dkt. 13), is DENIED."
    The DOJ had asked the judge to grant a temporary restraining order or injunction in an effort to block the state from enforcing the law that effectively bans all abortions in Texas, prohibiting the procedure past roughly six weeks into pregnancy.
    The DOJ argued that the bill, signed into law by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, would "prevent women from exercising their constitutional rights." The DOJ cited the Supreme Court, which ruled that "a State may not prohibit any woman from making the ultimate decision to terminate her pregnancy before viability." The new Texas law bans abortions before many women even know they are pregnant.
    The DOJ also argued that Texas had "an unprecedented scheme that seeks to deny women and providers the ability to challenge S.B. 8 in federal court. This attempt to shield a plainly unconstitutional law from review cannot stand."

    The ruling comes two weeks after the Supreme Court voted in a 5-4 decision to let the Texas law remain in force, denying an emergency appeal from abortion providers to stay the law until legal challenges can be brought.
