US judge temporarily blocks Miss. abortion law
Associated Press ^ | July 1, 2012 | EMILY WAGSTER PETTUS

Posted on 07/01/2012 6:19:32 PM PDT by Brown Deer

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) -- A federal judge on Sunday temporarily blocked enforcement of a Mississippi law that could shut down the only abortion clinic in the state.

U.S. District Judge Daniel P. Jordan in Jackson issued a temporary restraining order the day the new law took effect.

He set a July 11 hearing to determine whether to block the law for a longer time.

"Though the debate over abortion continues, there exists legal precedent the court must follow," Jordan wrote.

The law requires anyone performing abortions at the state's only clinic to be an OB-GYN with privileges to admit patients to a local hospital. Such privileges can be difficult to obtain, and the clinic contends the mandate is designed to put it out of business. A clinic spokeswoman, Betty Thompson, has said the two physicians who do abortions there are OB-GYNs who travel from other states.

So basically the law states that in order for a doctor to do a clinical procedure they need staff privelages at a hospital? I don’t see the problem with that.

At some point in the near future, the people are going to find a way to either ignore or overturn what has fast been becoming progressive law (both local and Federal).

When that happens, the future of America will blossom. It will be a time for ordinary citizens to finally express their viewpoints.

Until then, we are supposed to hang on and hope - I guess!

I am sitting here writing this post.

Let this sink in—When my folks were born, there was no income tax.

People made food to take to hospitals for someone they knew there to eat. Going to the hospital was something to be avoided at all costs.

When young, our family physician made house calls. Once, he came to our home on Christmas Eve. We were all sick with something. I cooked for everyone, even as a child.

Just let these thoughts sink in, you 4 or 5 people who read this. I have experienced them...and 12 loaves of bread for a dollar, penny candy, and sleeping on the living room floor as a family, on hot nights, with door and window screens all that kept the bugs out—without fear.

Yeah. I tell my kids stories about what life used to be like in America when there was a mom behind every door, every dad had a job, and the schools only taught the three R's. Kids used to be able to roam any neighbor hood without fear.
Welfare was not the norm. It was frowned upon, and those who were on welfare did everything they could to get off.

America was once a safe, productive, family and church oriented country, and America was good. Today, you're lucky if you're allowed to be born. If you are lucky enough to be born, you have to spend the rest of your life looking over your shoulder.

Right now, the government has regulations on everything..... but our individual bodies, and they're even trying to take that away from us. It's the only truly free thing we have left. After that, they control it all, and they're doing a horrible job of managing it.

The American people did better on their own.

Clearly those who advocate the murder of the most innocent among us have a list of judges they can rely upon to stay a court order or halt the implementation of a law that restricts infanticide.

I find it curious that the few pieces of legislation that have been passed that support the sanctity of life are stifled before the ink is dry on the signed law. If a law is passed that restricts pro-life activity or promotes abortion, it is enacted immediately.

Lifetime tenure for Federal and Supreme Court judges places all too much power in the hands of political partisans.

Mississippi has been sick of Washington sinse the 1850’s.

As for this particular act, the federal judge needs to mind his own business. What Mississippians do in Mississippi is none of Washington’s business. The State of Mississippi gains its authority directly from the People of Mississippi in their Constitution not Washington D.C.

Going to need to be more picky in your words there, Under the Federal Constitution, Washington does not have illegitimate say one way or the other on the matter of “abortion” just like its counter part murder, that is a matter concerning the domestic lives of the people of each State.

This is why The Federal judge has no illegitimate business saying one thing or the other about the Mississippi act. This is a matter for Mississippians and their Constitution, and I trust the vast majority of them have no problem what so ever.

My point is wider.

No government, on either state, local, federal or intergalactic level can allow abortion, or any other form of murder, and itself stay legitimate, regardless of how various citizens vote and what the Constitution says, with all respect for the latter.

Then I am afraid I must disagree, I define the legitimacy of a government upon the consent it has of those it governs.

Not every government has the consent to prohibit killing(including but not limited to abortion). You might find such a government rather odd, but I’m sure to the people living under it by in large it is acceptable.

Any State of theses United states may by its people be either authorized to prohibit killing or permit to any variable extent their values might deem proper.

A country of fools and murderers that agreed to a law that allows murder may have adhered to the due process for arriving at such law, and they may think their legislation is as you call it “acceptable”, but the law is still not legitimate in absolute terms of justice and therefore neither is their government.

Truth in general does not depend on the number of people finding falsehood acceptable. 2+2 is still 4, abortion is still murder, murder is still an unjust act, etc.

"Though the debate over abortion continues, there exists legal precedent the court must follow," Jordan wrote.

The most recent precedent at the Supreme Court in John "The Taxman" Roberts v The American People, is to simply change it to whatever floats your boat and ban abortion!

Go for it Jordan!

Good post.

I don't go as far back as you, but far enough.

My mother would drag my brother and me every year to the doctor and his wife-nurse office down the street for the usual kid shots, polio, etc. They lived upstairs, the office was at street level.

No government involvement. He charged no more than what the people of the neighborhood could pay.

Democrats soil institutions.

I will not dispute your defintion of murder nor do I need to.

No positive act can be regarded as essential for the legitimacy of any government. Just because you think such things essential in your mind for good government does not mean others might find them either essentially or unnecessary. You may regard them uncivilized but not any government not your own illegitimate.
