“Clearly Unconstitutional” – AG Merrick Garland Announces Federal Lawsuit Against Texas Over “Heartbeat” Abortion Law (VIDEO)

US Attorney General Merrick Garland on Thursday announced the DOJ is filing a lawsuit against Texas over its “heartbeat” abortion law.

The “heartbeat” law effectively outlaws abortions in the state after 6 weeks and also gives any citizen – including those outside Texas – the right to take legal action against anyone who ‘aids and abets’ the termination of a pregnancy after the cut off point.

Garland said the new abortion law is “clearly unconstitutional” and warned other states against passing similar laws.

“The act is clearly unconstitutional under longstanding Supreme Court precedent,” Garland said referring to Roe v. Wade.
