Biden Administration Prepares To Sue Texas

The Justice Department is planning to sue the state of Texas following a recently enacted law bans abortions once a “fetal heartbeat” is detected in a woman, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Citing people familiar with the plans, the newspaper reported a lawsuit could be filed as early as Thursday, though the sources noted the timeline could be later.

It was not immediately clear what argument the department would make, but one source that spoke with The Journal predicted it would be that federal interests were illegally interfered with by the Texas law.

The Hill has reached out to the White House and Department of Justice for comment.
