The Department of Justice and Merrick Garland just released a dissent in the Dobbs case describing their opposition to the ruling and their plans to fight back against the Supreme Court's decision.
One part of government actively working to undermine a Supreme Court ruling?
I don't know, but doesn't that sound a little insurrectionist?
Here are some excerpts from the statement:
Today, the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey and held that the right to abortion is no longer protected by the Constitution.
The Supreme Court has eliminated an established right that has been an essential component of women's liberty for half a century – a right that has safeguarded women's ability to participate fully and equally in society. And in renouncing this fundamental right, which it had repeatedly recognized and reaffirmed, the Court has upended the doctrine of stare decisis, a key pillar of the rule of law.
The Justice Department strongly disagrees with the Court's decision. This decision deals a devastating blow to reproductive freedom in the United States. It will have an immediate and irreversible impact on the lives of people across the country. And it will be greatly disproportionate in its effect – with the greatest burdens felt by people of color and those of limited financial means.
Okay, so this is just some mindless drivel that any pro-abort would spout when it comes to "reproductive rights."
Basically, Garland is angry because he thinks he should be on the court, so he's going to use his power as Attorney General to attack the court.
Garland goes on:
The Justice Department will work tirelessly to protect and advance reproductive freedom.
Under the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act, the Department will continue to protect healthcare providers and individuals seeking reproductive health services in states where those services remain legal. This law prohibits anyone from obstructing access to reproductive health services through violence, threats of violence, or property damage.
The Department strongly supports efforts by Congress to codify Americans' reproductive rights, which it retains the authority to do. We also support other legislative efforts to ensure access to comprehensive reproductive services.
And we stand ready to work with other arms of the federal government that seek to use their lawful authorities to protect and preserve access to reproductive care. In particular, the FDA has approved the use of the medication Mifepristone. States may not ban Mifepristone based on disagreement with the FDA's expert judgment about its safety and efficacy.
I may be wrong, but the DOJ is supposed to uphold the law.
Not to undermine laws you don't like and assist people in subverting the laws of their states.
Life has won this battle, but the war isn't over.
