Response to No Vested Interest (Reply #9)

Sat Jul 13, 2013, 02:21 AM

17. The Wisconsin abortion law got dumped the Monday after it was signed.

Often fed courts will halt ANY law that goes against Roe v. Wade before the law can even go in effect. Here's what's happened in other states.

Alabama:
- April 9: Gov. Robert Bentley (R) signs a bill requiring abortion doctors to have hospital admitting privileges; law is to take effect July 1.
- June 28: federal judge delays any enforcement of the law for 11 days after the original date.

Arkansas:
- March 4: Gov. Mike Beebe (D) vetoes a bill that would've banned abortions after 12 wks...BUT...
- March 6: The Republican-dominated Arkansas House of Representatives over-rides the veto.
- May 17: Federal judge blocks the law; the law otherwise would have taken effect on August 16.

Kansas:
- April 19: "Kansas Governor Sam Brownback on Friday signed into law a far-reaching anti-abortion bill that creates new restrictions on the procedure and defines life as beginning "at fertilization...The bill bars employees of abortion clinics from providing sex education in schools, blocks tax credits for abortion services and requires clinics to give details to women about fetal development and abortion health risks. It also bans abortions based solely on the gender of the fetus." (Reuters). (The Boston bombing dominated the news the week of 4/15/13, so not many remember these laws.)
- June 28: Federal judge blocks the law

Mississippi:
- April 17, 2012: Gov. Phil Bryant (R) signs law "requiring physicians performing abortions in the state to be a board-certified obstetrician-gynecologist and to have admitting privileges at an area hospital" thus forcing the ONLY abortion clinic in the entire state to shut down!
- July 1, 2012: A REPUBLICAN-nominated federal judge issues an injunction on the law the day it's supposed to take effect, but the judge partially lifts the injunction 11 days later.
- April 15: Federal judge blocks the law; this ruling disappeared from the news cycle because of the Boston Marathon bombing.

North Dakota:
- March 26: Gov. Jack Dalrymple (R) signs three anti-abortion bills that would all go into effect August 1 and: ban abortions "specifically on gender or on genetic abnormalities," require doctors "to determine whether there’s a detectable heartbeat prior to performing an abortion," and require abortion doctors to "have admitting privileges at a local hospital."
- June 25: Lawsuit filed in fed court challenging bills. As of July 10, it is still pending.

Wisconsin:
- July 5: Gov. Scott Walker (R) signs the bill into law "requiring doctors who perform abortions to have hospital-admitting privileges"; Planned Parenthood and the ACLU immediately sue.
- July 8: A federal judge blocks the law the day it's to take effect pending a full hearing due to a "troubling lack of justification" for the law including " irreparable harm to those women who will be foreclosed from having an abortion in the next week."
