Judge strikes down North Carolina ultrasound abortion law - CNN.com

(CNN) -- A North Carolina law that made women who wanted an abortion get an ultrasound, and then have the image described to them, is unconstitutional, a federal judge ruled Friday.

"The Supreme Court has never held that a state has the power to compel a health care provider to speak, in his or her own voice, the state's ideological message in favor of carrying a pregnancy to term and this court declines to do so today," U.S. District Judge Catherine Eagles said in her ruling.

The law required abortion providers to perform an ultrasound and place the image in the woman's line of sight. The fetus would then be described in detail, even if the woman asked the provider not to.

Supporters of the law had argued that it would promote childbirth.

The American Civil Liberties Union and other groups that brought the lawsuit praised the judge's decision.
YAY!

Good news. I had never considered the angle of not allowing the doctor's free speech.

:thup:

It would promote childbirth, at the expense of the Bill of Rights.

Not worth it IMO.

Coming from someone who thinks it's an issue of the bill of rights, I'll take your imbecilic laughter as a win. Thanks.
So you think disagreeing with the opinion of a US District Judge is a win.

You go with that Poundfoolish, you go with that! :rofl:

Supporters of the bill reckoned it would guilt trip women into giving birth. But they wouldn't offer a penny to help raise the child, would they?

Course not. They're all sluts anyway right?

Least you could do is look the baby in the eyes before you kill them

And the 'baby' isn't even aware that it exists, and therefore wouldn't know what is happening to it.
