In what is a remarkably uncontroversial upholding of legal precedent, the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago just ruled that Mike Pence’s Indiana anti-abortion law is unconstitutional:
Indiana’s ban on “selective abortions,” which was signed into law in 2016 by then-Gov. Mike Pence (R), is unconstitutional, a federal appeals court ruled on Thursday.
The law banned women from having abortions based on the gender, race or disability of the fetus.
The law imposes an “undue burden” on a woman’s right to get an abortion, said the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago.
“The Supreme Court has been clear: the State may inform a woman’s decision before viability, but it cannot prohibit it,” Judge William Bauer wrote.
Similar bills passed or proposed in other states have specifically tried to ban abortions based on a Down syndrome diagnosis.
Good. Let’s hope that there will be more defeats of the Talibaptists nationwide.
