DOJ Planning To Sue TX Over Abortion Law

Justice Department (DOJ) planning to Sue Texas over Abortion Law. The Lawsuit, is expected to argue that the Texas Law, Illegally Interferes with Federal Interests.

This comes just days after, Attorney General, Merrick Garland, said his Department is exploring Options to Challenge the State’s Strict Abortion Law.

While the Lawsuit could come as soon as Thursday, it’s possible the Timeline will be pushed back. The Biden Administration has faced building pressure to act after the Supreme Court allowed the Law to take effect in a 5-4 Decision.

TheNnew Texas Law, SB 8, Bans Abortions once Medical Professionals can detect Cardiac activity, usually around Six weeks, before some women even know they are Pregnant.

The Law places Enforcement responsibilities on Private Parties, by incentivizing Individuals who can recover $10,000 or more if they Win a Case against a Party they Accuse of Performing or Aiding in an Abortion.

By putting Enforcement Powers in the hands of Private Citizens, instead of State or Local Government Officials, it leaves Opponents of the Bill without an obvious Party to Sue.

Garland and President Biden have been Vague about the DOJ’s Options for responding to the Texas law.

Biden has promised a “whole-of-government” response, and said last week, that the DOJ and Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) would take steps to Protect Abortion Rights in Texas.

"I was told that there are possibilities within the existing law to have the Justice Department look and see whether there are things that can be done that can limit the independent action of individuals in enforcing ... a state law,” Biden said. “I don’t know enough to give you an answer yet.”

The Problem with Private Parties trying to Sue:, which was created by Anti-Abortion Group, Texas Right to Life, invited People to Send in Anonymous Tips, on those who may be Performing or Aiding in Abortions, in Violation of the State's New Law.

The Website was booted from GoDaddy for Violating the Company's Terms of Service Policy on Collecting Information on Third Parties without Consent.

Before it was Removed from GoDaddy, Multiple TikTok and Reddit Users, had flooded the Anonymous Tip Line, with Fake Reports.

The Site's Registration was changed to Epik, which is notorious for Hosting other Controversial Websites, like 8chan.

The Site later went Offline again, after Epik told Texas Right to Life that it Violated the Company's Terms of Service, particularly the Collection of Information on Third Parties without Consent.

"We contacted the owner of the domain, who agreed to disable the collection of user submissions on this domain," Epik said. now Redirects to the Texas Right to Life Website.

A Texas Judge, allowed for now, Planned Parenthood to continue Operations, and Denied the Right to Sue them.
