    Ninth Circuit Court Blocks Arizona's *** Abortion Ban
    by Jodi Jacobson

    On Wednesday afternoon, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit blocked enforcement of Arizona's 20-week abortion ban, signed into law earlier this year by Governor Jan Brewer. On Monday night, the Center for Reproductive Rights and the American Civil Liberties Union filed an emergency appeal with the Ninth Circuit Court seeking an injunction blocking the law from going into effect tomorrow, after a district court judge refused to do so.


    Personal opinions regarding abortions cast aside,
    we are approaching a point
    where those who look upon good government
    as something akin to godliness
    have reached a point where they consider that
    courts too often legislate rather than interpret laws
    and so
    such persons are coming
    to oppose the status quo of governance by court decisions.
    Persons familiar with government
    who are capable of distinguishing good government from bad
    are aware that the legislatures of the several states
    are the agencies that enact most of the laws
    directly affecting substantial rights of our people
    and that such legislatures
    are light years
    closer to understanding the needs
    and the desires of the majority of our people
    and are thus better positioned to protect majority rights
    than are our courts, our minorities, and the owners of our news media.

    What I have said may not sound, or be, important now

    but as the economy worsens

    the establishment must consider it to be so.
