Clinton appointed him. Presidential elections have consequences.

Kansas attorneys called the latest ruling unconstitutional because it replaces state discretion with a court's judgment.

That seems to be the general purpose of federal courts.

Another sign that we are no longer a free people but live under tyranny. There is no law that allows a judge to do this. Congress should just decide to stop funding this judge and any other that decides they rule the USA.

Interesting historical facts -

During the French Revolution approximately 60% of the captured aristocrats were decapitated by guillotine.

For the Ancien Régime judiciary, the number jumps to about 80% executed.

Unrelated to the topic at hand . . .

No idea how it popped into my head.

Sorry.

And what if Kansas simply declared that the judge was ruling outside of his authority and defied the court?

Would Obama send in the 82nd Airborne?

Judge: Defunding law unconstitutional

http://cjonline.com/news/2011-08-01/judge-defunding-law-unconstitutional#.TjfffiwZFzA

August 1, 2011 - 5:20am by Roxana Hegeman

Marten agreed with Planned Parenthood’s argument that the Kansas law is unconstitutional because it would impose additional restrictions on a federally-funded program, thereby violating the Supremacy Clause. He also agreed with the group’s contention that the law was intended to punish Planned Parenthood for advocating abortion rights and therefore infringes on its rights of association guaranteed by the First and 14th amendments.

“The purpose of the statute was to single out, punish and exclude Planned Parenthood,” Marten said.

Many believe the ruling will be overturned. Looks like a real stretch of the law, but that is what many "Federal" Judges do, expand the Federal Control.

” Kansas Planned Parenthood leaders claimed the law would force them to close clinics. They also said nearly 6,000 patients would face higher costs, have less access to services, and longer waits or travel times for appointments. “

And the court’s decision will result in the intentional deaths of hundreds or thousands of human beings still inside their mothers.

How Solomonic.

Jesus wept.

I know Marten. Good guy personally, though I obviously disagree with his decisions in many cases.

As for the case, it will be interesting to see where this ends up.
