Some Department of Justice (DOJ) workers want to be paid if they take leave and travel to more permissive states to have abortions, according to CNN.
The employee-run DOJ Gender Equality Network sent an Aug. 4 letter to Vice President Kamala Harris, Attorney General Merrick Garland and other high-ranking officials calling for the Biden administration to provide paid time off and fully cover travel expenses for staff going across state lines for “abortion care,” the outlet reported.
Over 20 staffers of various DOJ divisions signed the letter, which further suggests the government “allow federal employees to opt out of travel or relocation to states that ban abortion.” They also urged the administration not to consider employees’ “abortion-related activity” in background checks.
The DOJ Gender Equality Network echoed President Joe Biden calling the Supreme Court’s June Dobbs v. Jackson decision overturning Roe v. Wade “a giant step backwards in much of our country.”
“DOJ GEN believes that access to safe and legal abortion care is not only a ‘fundamental right,’ but also a human right—one that governments must protect to ‘eliminate discrimination against women and to ensure women’s right to health as well as other fundamental human rights,’ ” the organization said, quoting the White House and U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights’ office.
The letter said the Hyde Amendment preventing federal funding of abortion would not prevent any of its proposals but told the Biden administration to continue working for the rule’s downfall.
Neither the DOJ nor the Gender Equality Network immediately responded to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s requests for comment.

I’m plus sized with big boobs — I paid hundreds for Lizzo’s shapewear YITTY in 3X but was so disappointed
LIZZO'S shapewear line YITTY is designed for all body types — but some plus-sized users have been disappointed.
Curve model and fashion TikTok creator Marisa Lyn ordered $170 worth of basics from YITTY shapewear with high hopes.4TikToker Marisa Lyn ordered a bodysuit (pictured) from Lizzo's shapewear brand YITTYCredit: TikTok 4Lyn also ordered a bra (pictured) and shapewear (also pictured)Credit: TikTok 4The curve model also ordered biker shorts (pictured) from YITTYCredit: TikTok
Lyn often creates plus-sized fashion hauls and reviews on TikTok.
According to YITTY's website, every single piece is designed to celebrate, hug, and love every single body.
The brand, launched under Kate Hudson's brand Fabletics, was crafted for maximum comfort using bold colors and prints, sexy silhouettes, and targeted support.
The first look she tried on was the nearly naked shaping mid thigh bodysuit, which retails for $69.95 and comes in 6 different colors.
"I was so excited to get my YITTY shapewear but I'm sweating getting this bodysuit on," she said. "And it's not even good."
"It's riding up," she added, noting she got the bodysuit in a size 3X/4X. "I don't even think the next size up would be okay. Like, I'm sweating."
The curve model was excited to get the shapewear. "I'm just disappointed."
The second piece she tried on was the major label smoothing cross-front bralette in iconic black, which retails for $49.95. "Love the bra," she said.Most read in LifestyleHAND IT TO HIM I’m a doctor – the habit you should do DAILY to heal from acrylic nailsDRESS TO IMPRESS I’m a fashion expert - I found a SKIMS dress dupe for only $25 on AmazonWHAT'S IN STORE I worked at Walmart – the meaning of announcements, 'code black' is awfulCOPY THAT I’m an interior designer, why you should never paint a feature wall in your home
The mesh-backed bra is available in 5 colors, ranging in sizes XS to 6X.
She tried on the top with the nearly naked shaping ultra high waist short retailing for $49.95. "These were a battle to get on."
"I'm out of breath," she commented with a laugh. "You get them on and you just, like, don't take them off."
"They do feel really nice though," the creator noted. She was pleasantly surprised that the shorts didn't dig into her thighs.
Though the bottoms were difficult to get on and "suffocating," the model was satisfied with the quality. "There's an extra layer of protection in between for the thigh rub."
Despite the initial dissatisfaction with YITTY products, Lyn was extremely happy with the last purchase, the major label shaping high waist logo short in black. "These are really cute," she said with a smile.
The model ordered the bra in a 2X and the shorts in a 3X. "I like the fit a lot."4The YITTY sports bra also has a mesh backCredit: TikTok Read More on The US SunBEAUTY QUEEN BREAKTHROUGH JonBenét’s brother tells cops 'it's time to talk' after update FROM BEYOND UFO buzzed US bomber as 3,900mph object moved like 'no known human aircraft'
TikTok users were thrilled to find an accurate review of the brand. One user commented: "I feel like this is the first honest review I've seen! Ty!!"
Another user agreed, writing: "The bodysuit was really disappointing. Like it's really short. I wish it was longer and a little more stretchy."
