Prosecutions for Abortion
Mallory V. Gonzales – This case could affect the future of the law regarding abortion. Mallory is a complicated affair that involves two primary plaintiffs individually. They include Michele Mallory, who is suing administrator John Ashcroft and the Justice Department and also the Attorney General Gonzales in his role as head for the DOJ. After this case, Mallory must decide whether she’d like to file a suit against Ashcroft or Gonzales and also whether she’s interested in bringing her case to either the Supreme Court or a lower court.
In this particular instance the most important question to consider is the possibility that Gonzales can be found to be responsible for Bush’s 2003 regulations. The person being held accountable of the case is John Ashcroft, while Gonzales has to answer for his role as head of the DOJ. This suit was made because there was a belief that the laws were in violation of the Constitution as such, and Gonzales should have been able to shield those who objected to them from being prosecuted under the first amendment rights. The attempt to safeguard those whose first amendment rights are threatened could potentially limit abortion and make it more challenging for women to exercise their right to having an abortion.
A different issue is whether HIPAA-compliant telehealth platforms or clinics must shut down due to the lack of proper equipment or don’t meet certain requirements.
Lawyers for family law and the state officials behind the suit tried to argue that they’d made sure the clinics were in compliance with requirements for medical procedures. People who support abortion laws claim that the requirements stop disease and ensure women have safe abortions. The restrictions are criticised by those who argue against these laws, asserting they infringe on the Constitution, and impede women’s rights to access abortion.
