Federal Judge rules Alabama law banning dismemberment abortions is unconstitutional

Published on

District Judge Myron Thompson is the pro-abortionist’s go-to guy when they want to block pro-life laws.

Yesterday Judge Thompson was at it again, ruling that two protective Alabama abortion laws are unconstitutional and blocked the state from enforcing them. The decision was utterly predictable, given Judge Thompson’s long track record of hostility to pro-life legislation and that he had temporarily enjoined both laws in 2016 in a 100+page decision.

The first law, the Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act, bans the hideous dismemberment abortion technique in which a living, growing human being is torn apart and pulverized. Using steel tools, dismemberment abortions rip heads and legs off of tiny torsos as the defenseless child bleeds to death. Alabama is one of six states to ban dismemberment abortions along with Kansas, Oklahoma, West Virginia, Mississippi, and Louisiana.

The second law gutted by Judge Thompson, SB 205, prohibits the issuing or renewals of a health center license to facilities where abortions are performed within 2,000 feet of K-8 public schools.

“Because these laws clearly impose an impermissible undue burden on a woman’s ability to choose an abortion, they cannot stand,” Judge Thompson wrote. “The evidence compellingly demonstrates that the school-proximity law would force the closure of two of Alabama’s five abortion clinics, which together perform 72 % of all abortions in the State,” Judge Thompson wrote.

Judge Thompson’s name is familiar to NRL News Today readers. In March 2016, in a 53-page decision, he permanently struck down a part of Alabama’s Women’s Health and Safety Act that required abortionists to have admitting privileges at a local hospital.

In October 2015, in a 66-page- long decision he ordered the state of Alabama to immediately restore Medicaid funding to Planned Parenthood.
