Abortionists File Lawsuit Against Alabama Abortion Ban

Now it starts. After screaming feminists held protests all across the nation, afraid that they would lose the right to kill their unborn children, abortionists set out to sue. So on Friday, Planned Parenthood and the ACLU filed a lawsuit on behalf of Alabama abortionists to block the new law, which nearly outlaws the procedure.

The lawsuit reads:

“For over 46 years — since the Supreme Court decided Roe v. Wade — U.S. law has recognized the fundamental constitutional right to make the profoundly important and personal decision whether or not to terminate a pregnancy.”

One of the abortionists in the lawsuit, Dr. Yashica Robinson, an OB-GYN, complains that the law “punishes providers like myself and stigmatizes essential health care.”

Well, of course it “punishes” Dr. Robinson. She could lose a gravy train. As for “essential health care” — essential for whom? Certainly not for the unborn baby.

Alexa Kolbi-Molinas, a senior staff attorney for the ACLU Reproductive Freedom Project (isn’t it interesting how they couch abortion as “freedom”?) snarled:

“This law is blatantly unconstitutional, and the ACLU will not stand by while politicians emboldened by President [Donald] Trump’s anti-abortion agenda exploit our health and our lives for political gain.”

Once again — whose health? Not the unborn child’s.

However, Rep. Terri Collins, who sponsored the bill, is undeterred. In fact, she welcomed the lawsuit:

“This lawsuit is simply the first battle in what we hope will ultimately be a victorious effort to overturn Roe and protect unborn babies from harm.”

Meanwhile, in neighboring Mississippi, a federal judge blocked that state’s “heartbeat” law. Critics called the law a “six-week ban,” since that’s usually the time when the baby’s heartbeat can be heard.

Judge Carlton Reeves, whom President Obama nominated, seemed to be flippant in his ruling:

“Here we go again. Mississippi has passed another law banning abortions prior to viability.”

The law was set to go into effect on July 1, but now Mississippi abortionists are safe, thanks to Judge Reeves. Unborn babies, not so much.

But the wheels are starting to turn for the pro-life cause. Four states now have passed six-week abortion bans. In addition, eleven other states are considering such a ban. And on Friday, Missouri governor Mike Parson signed an eight-week abortion ban.

I’m hoping that the Alabama law will go before the Supreme Court, although there’s no guarantee that SCOTUS will hear the case. But if SCOTUS does, and this law stands, it will be interesting to hear feminists and abortionists whine about “activist judges.”
