Justice Department Seeks Emergency Order , To Block Texas Abortion Law. On Sept. 14, the Department of Justice filed an emergency order requesting a temporary halt to Texas' new abortion law. The department said that the new law (S.B. 8), which bans abortions past six weeks, prevents "women from exercising their constitutional rights.". This relief is necessary to protect the constitutional rights of women in Texas and the sovereign interest of the United States in ensuring that its States respect the terms of the national compact. , Department of Justice, via emergency order filing. It is also necessary to protect federal agencies, employees, and contractors whose lawful actions S.B. 8 purports to prohibit, Department of Justice, via emergency order filing. In particular, the Department of Justice claims the law violates the 14th Amendment. . It is well-settled that the Fourteenth Amendment prevents states from banning abortion before a fetus is viable. , Department of Justice, via emergency order filing. Because S.B. 8 has that effect, it is plainly unconstitutional under binding precedent, Department of Justice, via emergency order filing. It was also alleged that the law violates the Supremacy Clause and is causing many women to seek abortions outside of Texas, . "overburdening out-of-state clinics and creating backlogs for residents of other states seeking care." . If a restraining order is granted, the law will not be able to be enforced while it is being litigated

Chase Bedard, 38, and Lynette Chinchar, 40, both of the 5800 block of Kinzie Ave., were charged with two felony counts of possession of narcotic drugs and misdemeanor counts of neglecting a child where specified harm did not occur and possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to a criminal complaint:

On Tuesday, an officer was sent to the BP Gas Station at 2100 Douglas Ave. after being told a man, later identified as Bedard, was passed out at one of the pumps and was possibly high on narcotics.

The officer approached the car and Bedard told the officer he didn’t want his vehicle searched. The officer noticed a small plastic bindle with powder that Bedard claimed was coffee creamer. Bedard was speaking fast, was very animated and had constricted pupils. He was removed from the car and syringes were found on the driver’s seat. Under the driver’s seat was a black pouch that had a glass pipe, syringes and 1.3 grams of heroin and fentanyl.

The officer then went into the gas station to check on Chinchar, and after being told to come out, went with the officer to the car. The officer noticed she discarded something on top of the pump and identified it as a paper bindle containing 0.6 grams of heroin and fentanyl. She later said she got the heroin from a party.

Both were given a $10,000 cash bond in Racine County Circuit Court on Wednesday. Both have a preliminary hearing set for Sept. 23 at the Racine County Law Enforcement Center, 717 Wisconsin Ave., online court records show.
