Federal Judge Rules Killing Babies is an “Essential Service”…

Strange times we live in

Earlier today in Tampa, Florida, the county sheriff let the criminal inmates out of his jail, and then went to arrest a pastor for delivering Sunday church services and put him in the same jail.

Now a federal judge rules that getting a hip replacement should be delayed to help offset medical supply needs; but killing babies is an “essential service” that needs to continue.

TEXAS – […] Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced last week that abortion providers were covered by a state order that required postponement of non-urgent medical procedures to preserve hospital beds and equipment during the pandemic.

U.S. District Judge Lee Yeakel in Austin ruled that Paxton’s action “prevents Texas women from exercising what the Supreme Court has declared is their fundamental constitutional right to terminate a pregnancy before a fetus is viable.” (read)

      I don’t see the problem in this ruling. Abortions performed In a clinic do not take up hospital beds that would be used in the treatment of COVID-19 Secondly an abortion has a “time is of the essence feature”.

      If the SC has granted that right, the state should not interfere in that right

        EXACTLY the Constitutional problem: the SCOTUS cannot GRANT ANY RIGHTS AT ALL.

        Not their job. Not their duty. Not within their Constitutional purview to GRANT rights not actually and clearly, distinctly within that Constitution. Roe v. Wade was a politically-motivated and demonstrably UNConstitutional sheer fabrication of a ‘right’ that was not found anywhere within that document – anywhere. They made it up to fit a political agenda, and it was perhaps the most monstrous display of cowardice by our Government in our history. And I cannot fathom how the murder and outright butchery for profit of the unborn can by any stretch of any human imagination can possibly be deemed ‘essential.’

    The Ninth Amendment to the United States Constitution says: The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.
    So a woman has a right to abortion, the Supreme Court decided. And I totally agree with this. I also voted for Trump, and always vote Republican. I also gave money for Trump’s election, and I am giving money for Trump’s reelection. If Row v. Wade us overturned, every election will be about abortion, and no issues important to the nation will be considered. Besides, the Republicans will lose all elections unless they change their stance on abortion. Probably their abortion stance is what currently prevents them from winning every election by a landslide.

      If you’re okay with killing babies in the womb, you’re other stances don’t mean a damn thing to me. You can’t even get the right to “LIFE, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” correct so cutting my taxes is irrelevant. Your assertion that pro-life Republicans weaken their elect-ability over pro-abortion Rs is baseless.

      Whether it’s from materialist atheistic standpoint, a Biblical basis, or simply as a basic human right, abortion is immoral.

      Roe v Wade did not give women the right to have an abortion. Abortion rights are not in the constitution.
      The court ruled that a state law banning abortions was unconstitutional. Roe v wade had to do with right to privacy and that right extended to the fetus/unborn child. Thereby states making abortion “illegal” violates the woman’s right to due process rights.

      Sorry I felt that way at one time, but the fact is, the Dems cannot even say abortion should be “early and rare” anymore, they are bloodthirsty. It’s also a big business, selling body parts, disgusting. They are all about full term abortion now, it’s much worse than it ever was back in normal times. Now it is even celebrated. Because they have become fanatical and even more extreme, more and more people see how morally wrong it is, so I disagree.

      Just like how Drag Queen Story Time and the transgender push has has made me not a supporter anymore of the gay community. I’m done. They should have stopped at gay marriage. But even that, they wouldn’t accept civil unions, they wanted the word “marriage” and I will always resent it and will never believe in their fake marriages.

      “The Ninth Amendment to the United States Constitution says: The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”

      And the 10th Amendment says: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

      Lots of ways to argue this.
      So why is the Federal Government involved in the question in the first place? They have no jurisdiction according to the 10th. Abortion is not mentioned in the Constitution and thus it is up to the states to make the laws governing it.

      But really logically, if you don’t have a right to live then you have no rights! And that is where I stand on the question. No person has a God Given right to take a life of another human, or the right to deny a person, even a developing and totally dependent one, a chance to live. The argument about viability is pure sophistry. A newborn is not viable under the current definition as applied. It cannot live without care.

      I disagree and I am not a born again Christian nor a right to lifer but that said I feel strongly that the federal government has no legal standing on abortion as it is not an enumerated power. This issue should be decided by the individual states only – as our founding fathers intended. The federal government should stay out of it this issue all together. The more we have strayed from the constitution the weaker we become as a nation and as individuals.

    The “we” who advocate the murder of children as an “essential service” when they’re still in their mother’s womb won’t be remembered. Because it is that same “we” who are those worshiping the triune godhead of Genesis 6.4 who love to sacrifice innocent blood to it. They went out from us because they were not really part of us. There are no blessings and guarantees for liberties to those who advocate the murder of children. There is no “we” between us and them. If they had been part of us they would have remained with us. They only want the liberty to do whatever they please in order to carry out great evil upon the Son’s of Adam. But instead they will soon be ‘essentially served’ their just dessert. Then they will be forgotten.

    What those “we” will receive is the wrath of judgement for such abominations. They are the tares who think they will continue to be protected along with the other “we” are mistaken. We are of the wheat to be harvested and our brothers and sisters who were murdered in their mothers womb await us. Those “we” will now be separated and be given their due they so deserve. Because they are the “we” whose names aren’t found in the Book of Life of the Lamb and it is the most essential service that they be dealt with sooner rather then later. Their time is up. There are no blessings that will be protecting such people. They will now only receive the essential services of the curses they have brought upon themselves. I would suggest that the rest of you begin to separate from such people as you’ve already been warned to do in Revelation 18.4-5.

    This one is hard for me.

    I absolutely abhor abortions as morally, spiritually and of course ethically wrong. I have talked the talk and walked the walk supporting and fathering 2 babies their mother(s) wanted to murder in the womb – one when I was very young and had a single drunk night with a woman I wasn’t even dating I felt morally responsible and married her to keep the baby alive. Sadly the marriage was doomed to fail. The other different circumstances but outcome similar, I had to beg, plead and commit at least 18 years of income and time to keep the baby alive.

    So my anonymous bona-fides aside, a woman and doctor so intent on murdering a baby in the womb today – in this crazy, scary environment – may be barred today by court decree but IMO will certainly carry out the evil deed when the decree is lifted in 30 days or more down the road….and during this time the baby will developed more nerves, awareness and feel more pain when the mother and executioner deliver their judgement.

    OTOH, a ban today for 30 days or may could save the lives of thousands of babies due for delivery in this time that would otherwise be brutally butchered in the birth canal.

    It is tough when you think it through but you MUST always choose life over death. This Judge, the petitioners, doctors and businesses that pushed to overturn this must also rot in hell.

    On October 28, 2013, Yeakel ruled that abortion restrictions enacted by the state of Texas were unconstitutional… Three days later, Yeakel’s order was mostly overturned by a three-judge panel of the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans[3] On August 29, 2014, in response to a second lawsuit, Judge Yeakel ruled again that abortion restrictions in Texas H. B. 2 imposed an “undue burden” upon women seeking pre-viability abortions and upon abortion providers, and declared several provisions of the law unconstitutional.

    Yeakel’s rulings were upheld by the United States Supreme Court in June 2016.

      “The judiciary is out of control.”

      BINGO! You get the CEEGAR!

      YES – it is, in that we have too many judges, who take forever, usually as long as possible, to decide their cases. The longer it takes, the better. It makes them appear to be “wise” supposedly, and just. It’s SO GOOD to be a JUDGE! It benefits THEM. It’s so much easier than being a common shyster lawyer. You can sit on the governing bench all day (or in your chambers, where the real deals actually happen), all year, all decade, even forever, and not be unseated. If you might make a mistake in your rulings, nothing bad will happen. Then it just goes to an appeals court and some other judge there also gets to rule slowly, slowly, and to keep his permanent position.

      If you are an appointed judge, you probably never will be unseated, as long as you don’t do anything criminal. If you are elected, and running on ALL party lines: Republican, Democrat, Liberal, Conservative, (and a few other parties, too) you are usually running unopposed. When I was a kid they told me that that was what unopposed elections in the USSR were like. You’re a SHOO IN. Nice work if you can get it… Welcome to the USSA.

      “Some of these federal judges seem to have no brain cells whatsoever.”

      Oh, no. You don’t understand what it takes to be a judge. They are VERY smart people! They went to law school! They are much smarter than we, the little people are. All you need to be a judge is to get your ass seated on the bench and make sure it stays there as long as possible. Same as any politician does. Some judges are there until death or retirement. But politicians need to face re-election. There is problem if they have “safe seats”. Nancy, Chucky, etc. If they lose, then they become law firm consultants, lobbyists, media talking heads, etc., always capitalizing on their former positions.

      Now tell us – what’s the difference between politicians and judges?
