‘Fetal heartbeat’ law struck down in North Dakota

by Cheryl Wetzstein - The Washington Times  |  published on July 23, 2015

The nation’s first law to ban most abortions as soon as a fetal heartbeat is heard — around six weeks of pregnancy — lost in court again Wednesday.

Because Supreme Court precedent “does not permit us to reach a contrary result, we affirm,” said a three-judge panel of the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, upholding a lower court ruling striking down the 2013 law.

    I have watched animal mothers who fought to save their babies from harm no matter what the cost to them. But the human mothers fight to kill their babies because it is an inconvenience for them. All Abortions Are Murder. meh

    Life begins at conception, the8th US court of appeals in North Dakota has pronounced death to all the babies whose mother has chosen to kill her baby rather than give it life. I understand this baby has a right to life, created by God with the same rights as any person and the mother, judge doctor or any other person has no right to kill it. Those who take part in this had better repent of their sins and ask God to forgive them. There will come a time when it will be too late and you will in hell forever. meh

    The worst mistake we ever made was letting judges like this strike down the will of the people who voted as a majority or make/change the laws passed by ELECTED representatives.
    Evil liberalism at its finest..
