Judge Says 20-Week Abortion Ban is Unconstitutional

CBS News: “A federal judge has declared a North Carolina law banning women from having abortions after the 20th week of pregnancy except in an urgent medical emergency is unconstitutional. The decision Monday by U.S. District Judge William Osteen in Greensboro gave state legislators 60 days before his ruling takes effect to allow them to amend abortion restrictions or appeal his ruling to a higher court.”

“The U.S. Supreme Court has protected abortion as a constitutional right until a fetus has developed enough to live outside the mother’s womb. The judge noted that North Carolina’s own medical expert conceded that’s almost never possible until the 22nd week of gestation.”

1. As has been ruled before again and again

Republicans cannot take "no" for an answer. Though you may notice that when they had control of all three branches of government, they didn't try to ban abortion. If you're anti-choice, you probably should wonder why they didn't do that. (Spoiler alert: You're being played.)
