Court Ruling Strikes a Big Blow to Abortion

state-abortion-laws arizona

Arizona’s abortion opponents had a good day in court last week, when the Arizona Court of Appeals lifted an injunction that blocked a 2009 law from going into effect.

As a result, abortion providers such as Planned Parenthood will now have to follow the provisions of Abortion Consent Act, whose provisions had been placed on hold by a lower court.

Gov. Jan Brewer cheered the decision as “a great day for Arizona women and parents.”

“The 2009 Abortion Consent Act empowers women by giving them the objective information they need prior to deciding whether to have an abortion,” Brewer said in a statement. “Women deserve all the facts from their physician, in-person, before making such a critical decision. Today’s court decision will help guarantee that.”

Not surprisingly, Planned Parenthood Arizona CEO Bryan Howard disagrees.

‘No-abort’ law Blocked

Manhattan federal court abortion

A New York City law that would force crisis-pregnancy centers to disclose that they don’t actually provide abortions or birth control was blocked yesterday by a Manhattan federal court judge.
The new law, signed by Mayor Bloomberg in March and supported by City Council Speaker Christine Quinn and pro-abortion groups, had been slated to take effect today.
But Judge William Pauley ruled that the law was “unconstitutionally vague.”
Local Law 17 would have required emergency-pregnancy centers to disclose whether or not they perform abortions or give access to them; disclose if they have a medical professional on the premises; and say if emergency contraception and prenatal services are offered.
Backers of the legislation had argued that pro-life centers — which encourage women to carry their pregnancies to term — duped women by not making them aware of all options.
Councilwoman Jessica Lappin, the law’s lead sponsor, said the city will appeal. “The judge got it wrong,” she wrote in an e-mail. “Disappointed but not discouraged.”

Planned Parenthood is in the midst of a whirlwind week in court. On Friday, the group received news that a federal judge in Indiana would block a controversial state law that cuts off its funding. The following Monday, the group announced it would file suit against a similar restriction in Kansas.
That same day, in South Dakota, Planned Parenthood was also in court, arguing that a 72-hour waiting period was unconstitutional.

Planned Parenthood’s caseload stands to grow soon, too. The group said it is seriously considering filing a lawsuit soon in North Carolina challenging a provision in the state’s budget that defunds the group.

Rick Scott is ready to sign ultrasound abortion bill

Rick Scott is ready to sign ultrasound abortion bill

TALLAHASSEE — With the passage of two bills by the Senate on Thursday, three antiabortion measures are now headed to Gov. Rick Scott. Among them is a bill requiring that women be offered the opportunity to see and hear a description of ultrasound images before undergoing an abortion.
Gov. Scott said he will sign the bills.
“I told everybody on the campaign trail that I’m pro-life and I’m going to be a pro-life governor,” he said.

Lawmakers passed the ultrasound bill last year, but then-Gov. Charlie Crist vetoed it. That bill required women to hear the description on the ultrasound. This year’s legislation allows a woman to decline the description.

Vision of GOD’S wrath on those who support abortion

Vision of GOD'S wrath on those who support abortion

“The following vision was shown to me on September 25, 2010. It was a shocking thing to see but I must share it. For the Lion is roaring and is about to avenge the blood of the innocent.
I was worshiping, singing: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty”, when suddenly I saw in the spirit a pair of black scales standing in front of me. I wondered why they looked uneven. I knew God was showing me a vision for the United States.

Democrats willing to give in on everything but abortion

Democrats willing to give in on everything but abortion
This Democratic Senate and White House are clearly willing to disappoint their base on many issues. They’ve agreed to spending cuts and tax cuts for the wealthy, scrapped a public option, and continued warrantless wiretaps, indefinite detention of terrorism suspects and unnecessary wars on Arab dictators. But in last week’s budget debate we glimpsed the party’s unshakable core: dedication to the abortion lobby.President Obama had promised to veto the House-passed bill funding government through the end of the fiscal year, and Majority Leader Harry Reid made it clear the Senate would never pass it. But the final agreement — with most of the cuts Republicans wanted, plus funding for school vouchers in Washington — proved that the Democratic opposition was grounded not in Keynesian fears of spending cuts or liberal concern over service cuts.

Virginia Approves Bill That Would Close Most Abortion Clinics

Virginia Approves Bill That Would Close Most Abortion Clinics

RICHMOND, Va. — Virginia took a big step toward eliminating most of the state’s 21 abortion clinics, approving a bill that would likely make rules so strict the medical centers would be forced to close, Democrats and abortion rights supporters said.

Gov. Bob McDonnell, a Republican and Catholic, supports the measure and when he signs it into law, Virginia will become the first state to require clinics that provide first-trimester abortions to meet the same standards as hospitals. The requirements could include anything from expensive structural changes like widening hallways to increased training and mandatory equipment the clinics currently don’t have.

After reading from the book “Unplanned” by Abby Johnson, detailing an abortion procedure, Smith comments, “I ask members to read this book, ‘Unplanned’ and realize the scandal of the killing of these unborn children and calling it choice. There is nothing whatsoever benign or caring or generous or just or compassionate or nurturing about abortion.”
