Federal judge denies Biden DOJ’s emergency demand to block Texas’ 6-week abortion ban


(Worthy News) – A federal judge has rejected the Biden administration’s emergency request to block a law, marking the latest setback for abortion advocates seeking to overturn the pro-life measure.

In a one-page opinion released Thursday, U.S. District Judge Robert Pittman rejected the request of the U.S. Department of Justice to issue a temporary restraining order or preliminary injunction against Texas’ Bill 8. The law, which went into effect Sept. 1, bans abortion after a fetal heartbeat can be detected, usually around six weeks gestation. It also allows private citizens to sue individuals who perform abortions and those who help women obtain illegal abortions.

“This case presents complex, important questions of law that merit a full opportunity for the parties to present their positions to the Court,” wrote Pittman, appointed by former President to serve as a judge on the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas. “Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that the ’ Opposed Motion for Expedited Briefing Schedule … is DENIED.” [ Source: Christian Post (Read More…) ]
