After a Texas judge made a motion to pause the Texas pro-life Heartbeat bill saving countless babies in the Lone Star State.
“Tonight’s ruling is an important step forward toward restoring the constitutional rights of women across the state of Texas. S.B. 8 not only blatantly violates the right to safe and legal abortion established under Roe v. Wade, but it creates a scheme to allow private citizens to interfere with that right and to evade judicial review,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said in a statement.
She added: “The fight has only just begun, both in Texas and in many states across this country where women’s rights are currently under attack. That’s why the President supports codifying Roe v. Wade, why he has directed a whole-of-government response to S.B. 8, and why he will continue to stand side-by-side with women across the country to protect their constitutional rights.”
Biden’s top attorney also celebrated abortion, calling it a Constitutional right even though there is no right to abortion in the Constitution.
“Today’s ruling enjoining the Texas law is a victory for women in Texas and for the rule of law. It is the foremost responsibility of the Department of Justice to defend the Constitution,” U.S. Attorney General Merrick B. Garland said in a statement. “We will continue to protect constitutional rights against all who would seek to undermine them.”
