‘Here We Go Again’: Federal Judge Blocks Mississippi Abortion Ban

A federal judge in Mississippi on Friday issued a preliminary injunction to prevent the state’s 6-week abortion ban from going into effect, after criticizing the law in court this week. “Here we go again,” Judge Carlton Reeves ’s order on Friday began. “Mississippi has passed another law banning abortions prior to viability.” Reeves enjoined and then ruled unconstitutional a separate 15-week ban just a few months ago, and said earlier this week that the Republican-controlled state legis...

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...

After AL Abortion Ban’s Bad Press, Some GOPers Change Tune On Abortion Access

After 25 white men in the Alabama state Senate approved a bill outlawing nearly all abortion in the state, which was subsequently signed into law with by Gov. Kay Ivey (R), some prominent Republicans have sought to distance themselves from the legislation, which is far to the right of where polling indicates most Americans stand on the issue. But many of these Republicans now seeking political shelter sang a much tougher tune on outlawing abortion when the end of Roe v. Wade wasn’t such a rea...

‘Those Chromosomes And All That’: AL GOP Fumbles Medical Basics Before Abortion Ban

Following in the recent footsteps of allies in Ohio, Georgia and elsewhere, Republican state senators in Alabama last night voted to essentially ban legal abortions, flinging themselves at the feet of the Trumpified Supreme Court where one of these bills will almost certainly soon end up. In the debate before the vote, the lawmakers revealed a lack of basic knowledge about the medical foundations — or lack thereof — of their legislation. The Alabamians, like their colleagues in other states, w...

Tampering with the Supreme Court for political gain wrong for America

President Franklin Roosevelt’s re-election in 1936 was the largest electoral college victory since George Washington’s uncontested elections. His popular vote triumph was 60.8 percent to 36.5 percent. FDR saw the vote as an endorsement of his New Deal approach to the Great Depression. Arraigned against him was the U.S. Supreme Court, which the year before had struck down the heart of the New Deal: the National Industrial Recovery Act. With a tremendous political wind at his back, and the target ...

The Reproductive Health Act of Horror: The Lies Behind Abortion Without Limits

New York has legalized abortion up to birth, and beyond. It is now legal to neglect, choke, or smother a baby that somehow survived the lethal injection and knife cuts designed to kill during the abortion procedure. To put a fine point on it, Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the Reproductive Health Act (RHA) on January 22, the anniversary of Roe v. Wade. This law legalizes abortion in New York throughout all nine months of pregnancy, even up to dilation. It repeals the safeguard requiring all ...
