The Biden administration will move Heaven and Earth to ensure WOMEN are allowed to legally murder their unborn children.
They certainly won’t do the same to solve the gas price crisis, or defeat our adversaries, or restore American excellence — oh, no. The radicals swirling around Biden’s administration are strict adherents to the religion of liberalism — and nothing will stop them from ending blasphemy once and for all!
The Department of Justice once again defied the U.S. Constitutional and interfered with state rights this week.
A lawsuit was filed by Attorney General Merrick Garland against the state of Idaho challenging their “near-absolute abortion ban.”

The legal filing marks the first time President Joe Biden’s Justice Department launched a challenge against a state for abortion restrictions since the landmark June 24 Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization decision overturned a half-century of abortion access precedent, which the president decried as a “realization of an extreme ideology and a tragic error by the Supreme Court.”
The suit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Idaho, contends that the federal Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act preempts the state law. The federal law requires physicians to perform medically stabilizing abortions in an emergency.
Garland explained there are circumstances in which abortion is “necessary” if a patient is undergoing an unstable condition during pregnancy.
Meanwhile, the number of abortion procedures performed on at-risk mothers is virtually non-existent. While tragedies do occur, “necessary” abortion is by no means the real reason why Garland filed this lawsuit.
The federal agency’s lawsuit noted that the state has “passed a near-absolute ban on abortion,” which after taking effect on Aug. 25 will make it a criminal offense to perform an abortion “in all but extremely narrow circumstances.”

Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra also released a statement following the DOJ’s announcement, saying the department will continue to partner with the DOJ to enforce federal laws protecting healthcare “including abortions.”
Meanwhile, the Idaho Supreme Court is slated to hear arguments Wednesday on challenges over its near-total abortion ban, according to the Idaho Press. Attorneys for Idaho will seek to protect three separate restrictive abortion laws passed by the state.
The Biden administration once again is attempting to circumvent the Supreme Court in an effort to uphold the most egregious progressive acts of all time. Shame!
