DOJ issues statement vowing to support women seeking an abortion in Texas in wake of new law

Monday, AG Garland said the DOJ will protect women seeking an abortion in Texas amid the new statewide law that the SCOTUS allowed to move forward in a 5-4 decision.

Garland said the department would “protect those seeking to obtain or provide reproductive health services pursuant to our criminal and civil enforcement of the” law under the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act.
