(Worthy News) – The Justice Department indicated it will step up challenges to a restrictive law that blocks after a fetal heartbeat is detected through enforcement of a 27-year-old law that prohibits physical obstruction of those seeking abortions or reproductive services.

“While the Justice Department urgently explores all options to challenge Texas SB8 in order to protect the constitutional rights of women and other persons, including access to an abortion, we will continue to protect those seeking to obtain or provide reproductive health services pursuant to our criminal and civil enforcement of the FACE Act,” Attorney General Merrick Garland said in a statement Monday.

The Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act, signed into law in 1994, prohibits physical obstruction or force that “injures, intimidates, or interferes with a person seeking to obtain or provide reproductive health services,” the Department of Justice said. It also prohibits intentional property damage of facilities providing such services. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More…) ]
