Federal Judges have once again struck down Alabamian law. This time it was against the “Alabama Women’s Health and Safety Act,” which required abortionists to have admitting privileges (like all other doctors) to local hospitals in order to perform abortions. Federal District Judge Myron Thompson not only halted the law by a lift of his finger, but insulted protestors opposed to his decision, crying that they “threaten economic destruction” and “violence” (amazing how a man promoting the disgusting practice of abortion harps against Christian sidewalk counselors like they are terrorists).
Judge Thompson is a liberal poster child with a history of aggressiveness against Alabama and her people. Thompson was the second African judge to be appointed to his district, gaining that position in 1980 by way of Federal President Jimmy Carter. He has been lauded by liberals for his “rulings” which “dramatically changed how Alabama treats its employees and most vulnerable citizens.” Yellowhammer News calls Thompson “a long-time AEA ally who’s widely considered one of the most liberal judges in the state.” Thompson is best known for his ruling against Chief Justice Roy Moore in the 2002 case Glassroth v. Moore, which resulted in the removal of a Ten Commandments display from the Alabama Judicial Building.
In his typically weak-kneed counter, Governor Bentley said he was “extremely disappointed by today’s ruling.” While invoking the Sanctity of life, Gov. Bentley actually compromised on the issue, maintaining that abortions “should only be done as a last possible effort to save the life of the mother.” In effect, rather than telling off the forces of evil and invoking both God and country (Alabama), the Governor has allowed the abortionists to “keep one foot in the door.” With abortion, there is no middle ground. It is never the answer.
Only leaders unafraid to answer their foes with clear, concise, and unflinching resolve will carry the day. Nullification, not subjugation, is the answer.
