Today, Jacqueline Ayers, Vice President of Government Relations and Public Policy, Planned Parenthood Federation of America responded to the announcement by the Department of Justice on enforcing the FACE Act.
“We welcome this announcement by the Department of Justice to help protect providers and health care centers in Texas, but we hope and expect that the administration also intends to use every other tool at its disposal to protect patients who have no access to abortion in Texas right now. Texans are being denied their constitutional right to abortion after 6 weeks of pregnancy. The Department should continue to consider its authority under all relevant laws to restore access to abortion in Texas.
Meanwhile, this is far from over. Planned Parenthood, along with our partners, will keep fighting this draconian law in the courts and continue working with the Biden administration to protect Texans and access to safe, legal abortion.”
