The biggest challenge for President Trump since his election has been Obama-era officials keeping him from doing his job.
These are officials who are remaining loyal to former President Obama, despite serving under Trump.
And an Obama judge just made a ruling that Nancy Pelosi will love.
Throughout the country, states are continuing to enact pro-life legislation.
But whenever one of these laws is passed, it doesn’t take long for an Obama-era judge to step in and overrule it.
That’s exactly what happened in Arkansas, where a District Court Judge blocked three pro-life laws in the state.
District Court Judge Kristine Baker of the Eastern District of Arkansas said the laws “cause ongoing and imminent irreparable harm” to patients, along with being “unconstitutional.”
The laws she blocked include one that forbids abortion from taking place more than 18 weeks after the first day of a woman’s last menstrual period.
Another forbids abortionists from committing an abortion if the woman seeking it has obtained a prenatal diagnosis indicating Down syndrome.
And the third law was one that requires abortions to have OB/GYN certifications.
District Court Judge Kristine Baker of the Eastern District of Arkansas agreed Tuesday night to block three duly-enacted pro-life laws in Arkansas, intervening on the abortion industry’s behalf the day before they were to take effect.
One of the laws forbids abortions from taking place more than 18 weeks after the first day of a woman’s last menstrual period, except in cases of rape, incest, or physical medical emergency. Another forbids abortionists from committing an abortion if they determine that the woman seeking it has obtained a prenatal diagnosis indicating Down syndrome. The third requires abortionists to have OB/GYN certifications.
Baker granted a temporary injunction against the laws on the claims they were medically unnecessary, would “cause ongoing and imminent irreparable harm” to patients, and “are unconstitutional,” CNN reports.
While these laws do not go as far as pro-life advocates want, they are a strong step forward in protecting unborn baby boys and girls.
But Obama-era judges continue to make it impossible to advance even the simplest pro-life proposal.
So while Democrats can’t get much done in Congress under the leadership of Nancy Pelosi, she is at least happy that Obama holdovers are making sure Democrats get some wins.
