Biden Justice Department to sue Texas over anti-abortion law: report


The Justice Department reportedly is preparing to sue Texas over the state’s recently enacted law prohibiting abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected, setting up yet another court battle over one of the most contentious issues in the American culture war.

The Wall Street Journal reported late Wednesday that the suit challenging the law, known as SB8, could be filed as soon as Thursday. President Biden, who has described the law as “almost un-American,” announced in a statement last week that he had directed the Justice Department to find ways to block its enforcement.

The Supreme Court voted late on Sept. 1 to deny an emergency appeal from abortion providers attempting to prevent the law from taking effect — though the justices stressed that the order was not a judgement on the law’s constitutionality and emphasized that challenges to the measure could still go forward in lower courts.
