Posted on 07/22/2013 10:19:09 AM PDT by GIdget2004
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) A federal judge on Monday temporarily blocked a new North Dakota law that bans abortion when a fetal heartbeat is detected as early as six weeks into pregnancy, calling the law "clearly invalid and unconstitutional."
U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland in Bismarck granted a temporary injunction Monday that blocks the law from taking effect on Aug. 1.
"There is no question that (the North Dakota law) is in direct contradiction to a litany of United States Supreme Court cases addressing restraints on abortion," Hovland wrote. " (It) is clearly an invalid and unconstitutional law based on the United States Supreme Court precedent in Roe v. Wade from 1973 ... and the progeny of cases that have followed."

If you’re a killer, it’s probably more fun to murder babies after their little hearts start to beat than before.
we should ban courts from making law
It is coming to a point when Americans serious about their freedoms should ask themselves this -— CAN JUDGES TRUMP THE LEGISLATURE OR THE PEOPLE’s WILL IN A REFERENDUM?
How far downterm can we abort judges?

The states need to reassert their rights under the 10th Amendment. Perhaps the state should call a Constitutional Convention and pass new amendments:
1) Make state courts independent of the federal judiciary. No federal court review of state court decisions.
2) Repeal the 16th and 17th Amendments
3) Require the federal government to balance its budget each year and pay off the national debt within 50 years.
4) Narrowly define the commerce clause
5) Forbid the Federal government from engaging in activities not specifically enumerated in the language of the Constitution or its Amendments.
6) Restrict Supreme Court rulings to the specific words in the Constitution and intent of the drafters at the time it was written. Forbid the courts to consider any international law or laws of other countries.
7) A new supremacy clause. The Senate cannot approve treaties with foreign nations and organizations that are in conflict with the laws of the United States and the individual states.
8) Forbid the drawing of election district lines based on race, sex, or ethnicity of the residents.
9) Require candidates for elected federal offices, cabinet posts, and judgeships to supply proof of citizenship at the time of election or appointment. Original documents required.
10) The federal government cannot require states or localities to provide benefits or rights of citizens to non citizens.
What Balance of Powers (as in “Checks & Balances”) is there when one judicial individual can negate, simply by releasing a glorified press release, the deliberations and votes, over a period of time, by two state legislative bodies composed of dozens of representatives from multiple political parties duly elected by the people and these votes have been reviewed and, in most cases, endorsed by the governor of that state?

Disgusting piece of baby killing trash. Dalrymple, do something!
I have a copy of the Constitution. Nowhere in that document is it written that powerful adults have the license to kill innocent early stage humans. I have a copy of the Constitution. Nowhere does it say that unelected hack shysters have the power to overturn laws passed by state legislatures.
We must rethink the entire notion of judicial review. Judges are not representative—six Supreme Court judges were raised in New York, the least American of our cities.
Murder is a state issue. The judge needs to mind his own business. _
In declaring this 'unconstitutional', I notice he cites everything except for the actual Constitution itself.
