Alabama Judge Exposes Hypocrisy of Assault on Reproductive Rights - Liberals Unite
The lawful right to an abortion, like the right to bear arms, cannot be fulfilled without the help of another party. The judge proclaims that any action which would serve to so fully compromise the access to any legal, established right, must come from a place of necessity and authenticity. The Alabama law does neither.
In his 172 page ruling, Thomson stated that there is no basis to the belief that shutting down abortion clinics and restricting access to abortion will result in less or safer, abortions.
Let us just remind ourselves once more that these procedures are completely legal. They have, through the years, become the target of fervent and duplicitous efforts to undermine women. Anti-choicers are the saboteurs of women’s rights and legal abilities to make their own choices and be in charge of their own lives and destinies.
“These admitting privileges were not designed to make women safer,” said Susan Watson, executive director of the ACLU of Alabama. “Major medical organizations, including the American Medical Association and the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, oppose them. We are proud to know that Alabama’s women will continue have access to safe and legal abortions.”
