Stephen Breyer calls Supreme Court decision on Texas abortion law 'very, 대단히, very wrong'

워싱턴 US Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer called the high court’s recent refusal to block a controversial Texas law that bars abortions at six weeks “대단히, 대단히, 매우 잘못되었습니다.”

I’ll add one more ‘very,’ ” the liberal Justice told NPR in an interview published Thursday. “And I wrote a dissent. And that’s the way it works.
Breyer’s comments build on his pointed dissent in the Supreme Court’s 5-4 ruling that allowed the Texas lawwhich is one of the strictest in the nation and bans abortion before many people know they are pregnantto remain on the books.
    unsigned opinion, the majority wrote that while the abortion providers had raisedserious questions regarding the constitutionality of the Texas law,” they had not met a burden that would allow the court to block it at this time due tocomplex” 과 “novelprocedural questions.
      All three of former President Donald Trump’s appointeesNeil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrettvoted with the majority to let the Texas law remain in effect.
        법에 따라, abortion is prohibited when a fetal heartbeat is detected, and there is no exception for rape or incestalthough there is an exemption formedical emergencies.
        Texas’s law delegates to private individuals the power to prevent a woman from obtaining an abortion during the first stage of pregnancy,” Breyer wrote in dissent. “But a woman has a federal constitutional right to obtain an abortion during that first stage.
          He told NPR that the Texas case should not have been decided on an emergency basis, but said, “We’ll see what happens in that area when we get a substantive matter in front of usin the future.
          아직도, by letting the law take effect, the conservative majority may already have tipped its hand on whether it is poised to reverse or at least undercut Roe v. 걸어 건너기, the ruling that declared women’s constitutional right to end a pregnancy.
          The Biden Justice Department on Thursday sued the state of Texas over the new six-week abortion ban, calling it unconstitutional.
            Announcing the lawsuit at a news conference in Washington, Attorney General Merrick Garland said the Texas law’sunprecedenteddesign seeksto prevent women from exercising their constitutional rights by thwarting judicial review for as long as possible.
            The act is clearly unconstitutional under longstanding Supreme Court precedent,” Garland said.
