Federal Judge Blocks Indiana Abortion Law

An Indiana abortion law has been blocked.

A federal judge on Thursday blocked an Indiana law that would have banned abortions based solely on a fetus’s disability or genetic anomaly, suggesting that it was an illegal limit on a woman’s long-established constitutional right.

Judge Tanya Walton Pratt, of Federal District Court for Southern Indiana, also held up a state ban on abortions motivated solely by a fetus’s race or sex. In the preliminary injunction, Judge Pratt said limiting the reasons for an abortion was “inconsistent with the notion of a right rooted in privacy concerns and a liberty right to make independent decisions.”

How typical. All the crapholes in the nation waste they limited resources to make moronic laws that achieve nothing but demonstrate their stupidity.

I'm not looking to derail this thread so consider this post a commentary.

I generally do not like when a judge legislates from the bench. That is not their job but in this circumstance I agree with the ruling because that law does violate her constitutional rights.

Our legal system is dysfunctional for these kind of laws to even get passed. It seems to me any law before passed should have to pass a constitutional review process before it can enacted.

Good.

I love how the anti-choicers pretend to white knight women while at the same time trying to control their bodies.
Anti-choicers? Would you like it if they referred to you as an anti-lifer?

Anti choice is accurate, anti life is not.

Pro choicers have been called pro death, pro abortion, abortionists etc.

I know we have but that does not give anyone a license to do it to somebody else.

It appears your hypocrisy is a problem for you. Specifically, a recognition problem
Got it you perfer snarkiness over dialouge. I wasnt being a hypocrite in the least bit. I didnt derail the thread but your certainly trying to by posting personal attacks.

How is it possible to be anti-child support, anti-social welfare, and anti-abortion "simultaneously"? There's folks like this in the DP forum.

A glimpse into the minds of these type people might include, but is by far not limited to the following:

1)"Anti-child support" coming from "mostly" men who claim that the government has victimized them by forcing fatherhood on them. No doubt there are women who make some similar claim if they don't want to be a custodial parent, but felt morally obligated to give birth.

2) Anti-social welfare - people who have issues paying taxes - for almost everything.

2) Anti-abortion - human life is sacrosanct so they must be born at all costs.

People who subscribe to, what I consider to be polar opposites ideologies, completely ignore the obvious cause and effect on "children" - if their beliefs were enforced in our society. Punish kids for the failure of the parents - sounds like an old religious fable to me.

So where do we start in order to oblige all of these "anti-everything people"?

To begin with, abortion prevention should begin with some legislated punitive consequences for sexual irresponsibility "on the part of women". They believe that the consequences should be so severe that women will be legally coerced into giving birth and the born child is the woman's punishment for 18 plus years - with no social safety net - and only support from one of the co-conceivers.

Then all other "anti-whatevers" - need to just stop all of the other stuff they oppose. They need to stand up to Federal and State government and tell them to stop all of the social welfare programs and child support laws because they aren't rational. They only serve as instruments to drain precious resources from the the citizens at large.

In the end, all of the anti-everything folks say "tough titty" for children born into a society who feuds over who's responsible for them. In other words, according to these anti-everything folks are saying: ALL SOCIETY HAS TO DO IS REMEMBER - because kids of the future - who are conceived as human life - it should be mandatory that they be born - and when they are born - despite not being able to fend for themselves they just need to suck up life's ups and downs like everybody else who is born...if they can survive all of the anti-everything folks beliefs.

Anti choice is not in the same ballpark. And it is accurate, they are against the woman having any choice but to gestate and give birth.

They refer to themselves as pro-life. It's disrespect to call them anti-choice. When they call you anti- life or pro-death they are being just as rude but I'm sure they would argue that they are just being accurate too.

If you insist on insulting people you disagree with that will not get you anything but more people disliking you.
