After opponents had challenged the measure, an appeals court has ruled that a Texas abortion law passed last year that requires doctors to perform sonograms to pregnant patients, can be enforced.
Americans United For Life President & CEO Dr. Charmaine Yoest appeared on Fox News Channel & debated the Texas sonogram law with Nancy Keenan of NARAL.
A key point that seems to be lost in media stories about the ruling is the fact that women can opt out of viewing the sonogram if they so choose.
Watch to the end to the mild mannered Yoest’ slam PP’s blood curdling hypocrisy…”I think it’s fascinating that you would bring up the relationship between the woman and her doctor, *cough*…”
In case you missed it…
Another huge story from last week with special appeal to religious conservatives: Maggie Gallagher, Townhall: Court Unanimously Slaps Down Obama’s Anti-Religion Doctrine:
Lost in the political shuffle in New Hampshire was an epic U.S. Supreme Court decision this week in Hosanna-Tabor Evangelical Lutheran Church and School v. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
By an astounding, unanimous 9-0 margin, the usually ideologically divided Supreme Court slapped down President Obama’s radical doctrine that the federal government can tell a church who it must employ as a minister if the church violates anti-discrimination employment provisions.
The Obama administration’s claim that there is no special protection for clergy in our Constitution, the majority ruled, “is hard to square with the text of the First Amendment itself, which gives special solicitude to the rights of religious organizations. We cannot accept the remarkable view that the Religion Clauses have nothing to say about a religious organization’s freedom to select its own ministers.”
This was an epic defeat for Obama’s ongoing war on religion as described by Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler:
Socialism needs to undermine the church, allowing the state’s deity (in whatever evil form it takes) exclusive control over the conscience of the people. The socialists know well that the morals and world view taught by the church are in direct conflict with establishing the state as the supreme influence for the populace. In modern times the socialists, keeping with their PC bullshit, wage war against any theology except Islam.
