Radical DOJ says it will 'protect' women seeking abortions in Texas

The Department of Justice (DOJ) on Monday said it will protect women who are seeking abortions in the state of Texas amid turmoil following the passage of a controversial restrictive abortion law in the state.

In a press release, Attorney General Merrick Garland said the department will explore “all options” to challenge the new Texas law, adding that they will provide support for women in the Lone Star State who are still seeking abortions.

“The department will provide support from federal law enforcement when an abortion clinic or reproductive health center is under attack. We have reached out to U.S. Attorneys’ Offices and FBI field offices in Texas and across the country to discuss our enforcement authorities,” Garland said in the statement.

“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 Act,” he said.

The FACE Act prohibits the use or threat of force and physical obstruction that injures or interferes with a person who is seeking to obtain or provide reproductive services, according to the DOJ release.

The act, signed into law in 1994, also prohibits damage to a health facility that provides reproductive health services.

The Justice Department move comes amid the backlash surrounding Texas’s new abortion law which went into effect Wednesday.

The legislation, which was signed by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) placed an effective ban on almost all abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected, which is normally six weeks into a pregnancy.

The Supreme Court refused to block Texas’s new abortion law in a 5-4 vote Wednesday.

If you get into a car accident and kill a pregnant woman, and you are determined to be at fault, you will get charged with a double murder. Abortion should not be used as a method of contraception for all of the degenerate roasties out there.

Has the DOJ forgotten about state’s rights? This country was setup for each state to be independently sovereign. If you don’t like the laws of the state you live in then move. Remember these laws are put in place by elected officials on a majority rule system. The federal government needs to worry about protecting our borders and getting a handle on our interstate economy. Get back to the basics of what it was created for and stop meddling in the clearly codified rights of the states.

So the federal government will “protect” a woman who wants to abort their unborn child but refuses to protect those who were just left in Afghanistan. Sounds about right.

Fuck this clownshow.

Abortion is NOT a constitutional right!
