The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals is scheduled to hear arguments Thursday about whether women should be allowed to discriminate against their own children’s race or disability via abortion.
The abortion giant Planned Parenthood and the ACLU are challenging an Indiana state law that prohibits abortions based solely on an unborn baby’s sex, race or disability such as Down syndrome.
In September, a federal judge appointed by President Barack Obama blocked the law. However, the state appealed to the 7th Circuit Court.
The Indiana Lawyer reports disability rights advocates and biomedical ethicists have filed amici curiae, or friend-of-the-court, briefs in support of Planned Parenthood. What the report failed to note was that a coalition of disability rights groups, biomedical ethicists and a women’s advocacy group also filed a filed a friend-of-the-court brief in support of the state law.
President Donald Trump has proposed a fiscal year 2019 budget in which taxpayer dollars would be directed away from the Planned Parenthood abortion business.
Since becoming president, President Trump has taken multiple actions to defund the nation’s biggest abortion company. On his third day in office he reinstated a pro-life policy that revoked tens of millions of dollars from International Planned Parenthood. President Trump has also signed legislation that would help states defund the Planned Parenthood abortion company as well.
Abortion is more than a hot-button issue. It’s an emotionally charged roller coaster. Most everyone has a view on it, and some people devote their lives to one side or the other. But that passion can be misdirected and misused, to the point of pushing people in the opposite direction.
Rewire recently posted a short documentary entitled “Care in Chaos” about the disruption outside of abortion facilities in Charlotte, N.C., and Fargo, N.D. The film followed Calla Hales, the young administrator of the abortion clinic in Charlotte, as she tried to get answers from the local government on sound ordinances. Protestors outside her clinic set up loudspeakers daily that created an atmosphere of confusion and chaos.

As we reflect back today on Roe v. Wade’s and Doe v. Bolton‘s 45 year reign, it’s helpful to both veterans and newcomers to our Movement to talk about what took place the year and a half from the time the Supreme Court first agreed to hear the abortion cases until they were actually decided.
