MS Judge Who Rejected 15-Week Abortion Ban: 8-Week Ban ‘Smacks Of Defiance’

The same judge who struck down Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban just a few months ago said Tuesday that a new six-week ban signed into law by the state’s governor “smacks of defiance.” “It sure smacks of defiance to this court,” U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves said Monday, per several local outlets. After Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant signed the six-week ban into law in March — outlawing abortions performed before many women even know they’re pregnant — the state’s only abortion clinic, J...

This Haunting Portrayal Of Abortion Is Just A Glimpse Of What’s To Come

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey signed House Bill 314 into law Wednesday, making performing abortions at any stage of a woman’s pregnancy a felony in the state. The bill provides no exceptions for cases of rape or incest; the only exception is if the woman’s life is in danger.The severity of this legislation could have enormous consequences, not the least being the potential to be challenged in court and thus opening the possibility to overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 Supreme Court decision that...

Opinion analysis: Hyatt fulfills expectations in a surprising way

In an already familiar 5-4 lineup, the Supreme Court has overruled Nevada v. Hall, which for 40 years has stood for the proposition that states generally lack sovereign immunity in one another’s courts. The new decision vindicates a legal position long held by conservatives, but it appears to endorse a loose approach to finding structural principles in the Constitution. The ruling also adopts a less than exacting view of stare decisis — hardly surprising for Justice Clarence Thomas, who wrote th...

(You can watch them all in the video below.)"Birth control is important to me because I have the right to choose when I would like to have children and if I would like to h...

Kansas' Supreme Court Decision Is A Major Victory For Abortion Rights

On Friday, the Kansas Supreme Court blocked a law banning dilation and evacuation (D&E), a procedure commonly used in second-trimester abortions. In its decision, the court also ruled that abortion rights are guaranteed under the state constitution, which clears the way for reproductive rights advocates to challenge an onslaught of anti-choice legislation introduced in recent years."Section 1 of the Kansas Constitution Bill of Rights provides: 'All men are possessed of equal and inalienable nat...

Film Review: ‘Unplanned’

“Unplanned” isn’t a good movie, but it’s effective propaganda — or, at least, it is if you belong to the group it’s targeting: those who believe that abortion in America, though a legal right, is really a crime. It’s hard to imagine the movie drawing many viewers outside that self-selected demographic. “Unplanned” preaches to the […]

Federal Ruling OKs Ohio Anti-Abortion Law Blocking Planned Parenthood Funds

CINCINNATI (AP) — A divided federal appeals court Tuesday upheld an Ohio anti-abortion law that blocks public money for Planned Parenthood. The full 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a lower federal court ruling. The Ohio law targeted funding that Planned Parenthood receives through the state’s health department. That money is mostly from the federal government and supports education and prevention programs. The law bars such funds from entities that perform or promote abortions. Phon...

Catherine Glenn Foster is the president and chief executive officer of Americans United for Life. The U.S. Supreme Court’s last pronouncement on abortion came in 2016, in the jurisprudential netherworld between the death of Justice Antonin Scalia and the appointment of Justice Neil Gorsuch. Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt invalidated portions of Texas’ HB 2, including a requirement that doctors performing abortions maintain patient-admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of their ...
