Judge blocks state of Kentucky abortion ban.

A Jefferson County Circuit Judge issued a temporary ban blocking the state from enforcing an anti abortion law.

At the request of two abortion clinics.

Headline might as well be "judge ignores Supreme Court."

Yep. Absolutely ridiculous ruling. The KY trigger law is unambiguous.

I still don't understand how these circuit court judges are able to just take over America whenever they feel like it. Something's fricked up in the chain of command over here

WOW! I guess some of these liberal judges are just going to ignore the Supreme Court.

This should be interesting to watch.

The problem is that it costs them nothing. There is no risk or accountability. Nobody is removing their judgeship for "bad rulings".

Most states with "trigger" laws are seeing the same sort of injunctions.

Personally, I don't see the point. Even if successful, they just delay the inevitable until the next state legislative session.

They just want a little more time to kill more babies.

This judge is literally an accessory to murder.

you answer your own question

there's the point... stay operating as long as possible... take up as many cases and make as much money as quickly as it can before the courts say 'ok this stands muster and can take effect now' and the state forcibly shuts them down

You know why.

The argument by the ACLU in KY was that Sections 1 and 2 of the KY constitution require abortion be legal.

quote:

Section 1: All men are, by nature, free and equal, and have certain inherent and inalienable
rights, among which may be reckoned:
First: The right of enjoying and defending their lives and liberties.
Second: The right of worshipping Almighty God according to the dictates of their
consciences.
Third: The right of seeking and pursuing their safety and happiness.
Fourth: The right of freely communicating their thoughts and opinions.
Fifth: The right of acquiring and protecting property.
Sixth: The right of assembling together in a peaceable manner for their common
good, and of applying to those invested with the power of government for redress of
grievances or other proper purposes, by petition, address or remonstrance.
Seventh: The right to bear arms in defense of themselves and of the State, subject to
the power of the General Assembly to enact laws to prevent persons from carrying
concealed weapons.

Section 2: Absolute and arbitrary power over the lives, liberty and property of freemen exists
nowhere in a republic, not even in the largest majority


The only thing in Section 1 would be The right of seeking and pursuing their safety and happiness. That is extremely nebulous though and I don't see it. Section 2 is basically the 14th amendment argument that was just shut down by the Supreme Court.

Even if this prevails in the short term there is a constitutional amendment on the ballot this fall to add a statement that nothing in the Constitution can be construed to support a right to an abortion which is going to pass overwhelmingly. At best they will get to continue killing babies for 4 more months.

I look for a network of leftist Federal Judges to, for as long as they can, work in conjunction with leftist legal entities to do this nationwide. Everybody should know by now the left does not accept losing and will manipulate every avenue to not take the "L"!

The judge has no jurisdiction.

The clinics are not suing under federal law. The Dobbs decision has no bearing whatsoever on whether the Kentucky constitution includes a right to abortion.

Because lawmakers refuse to impeach judges.
