Leftists despise any limitation on abortion.
They could not care less if a baby can feel pain.
Now a George W. Bush appointed judge is stabbing pro-lifers in the back on Roe v. Wade.
George W. Bush-appointed federal judge William Osteen stabbed pro-lifers in the back on Roe v. Wade.
North Carolina has a long-standing law that bans abortions after 20 weeks.
The law was enacted in 1973, the same year that Roe v. Wade was decided.
Medical science has since confirmed babies can feel pain much sooner.
In fact, the University of Utah’s Dr. Maureen Condic, a neuroscientist and Trump appointee to the National Science Board, has testified as much.
But Osteen just voided the North Carolina law because he says the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade made “clear pronouncements” on the “right to choose to have an abortion.”
Since 1973 (the same year the U.S. Supreme Court handed down Roe v. Wade), state law banned abortion past 20 weeks except in cases of “medical emergency,” WTKR reported. The legislature amended the law in 2016 to define medical emergencies more narrowly, but Judge William Osteen of the Middle District of North Carolina ruled Monday that the law cannot limit abortions before a child can survive outside the womb.
“State law cannot impose an outright ban that prevents a ‘woman (from) choos(ing) to have an abortion before viability,’” Osteen wrote, invoking “the Supreme Court’s clear pronouncements on the pre-viability right to choose to have an abortion” in Roe as well as “other federal courts that have considered the constitutionality of 20-week bans and similar week- or event-specific abortion bans.”
If this year has proven anything, it’s that abortion up-until-birth, and even infanticide are now a central part of the Democrat Party’s platform.
The Democrat Party is being pulled further and further left by radical pro-Abortion activists.
Sadly, many federal court justices are only adding to the cultural wreckage.
What do you think, should abortion be banned?
