US attorney general vows to protect abortion clinics in Texas
Aljazeera says the United States Justice Department has promised to protect women seeking abortions in Texas after a state law that went into effect last week banned the procedure after six weeks of pregnancy.
US Attorney General Merrick Garland said on Monday that his office is “urgently” examining its options to challenge the Texas legislation.
He also pledged to cooperate with the FBI to respond to any threats to abortion clinics, citing the FACE Act, a federal law that prohibits attacks on facilities that offer reproductive health services.
