    Judge stops Oklahoma abortion law

    OKLAHOMA CITY, May 3 (UPI) -- Oklahoma's new law requiring women to submit to an ultrasound procedure shortly before getting an abortion was put on hold by a judge Monday.

    Oklahoma County District Judge Noma Gurich signed an agreement stopping enforcement of the law and scheduled a July 19 hearing to hear complaints about it, The Oklahoman reported.

    Abortion facilities contend the ultrasound law requiring women to undergo ultrasounds within an hour before terminating a pregnancy is unfair because it treats treats abortion providers differently than other medical personnel.

    Oklahoma Gov. Brad Henry vetoed a bill with the ultrasound requirement but the state Senate overrode him Tuesday and the law had gone into effect immediately.

    Once again, the party of "small government" , the Repubs, continues its efforts to give gov't more and more intrusive powers, this time allowing them to stick their arrogant noses into women's health rights.

    I knew that rationality would eventually prevail.
    It generally does, in the end.

    This is what the law does under this law it makes the abortion doctor not obligated to tell you, if they baby has defects, if you deiced to keep it. It also what I would call emotional blackmail, and it does seem too signal out Abortion clinics.

    Not her job. That's pure activism. She has no right to stop it.

    Spare us your phony indignation. Most Liberals LOVE big government. They just oppose it when its something they don't agree with.

    That was voted on by the people who speak for the people. This activist judge circumvented that process and imposed her own personal politics.

    Yes, because making a woman see the child she is killing is so... big gov't. It's so WRONG! Better to just let her think she's killing a mass of her own cells she doesn't want to deal with.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    If you had an internal tumor that was hours away from being removed, it wouldn't make sense for the doctor to stop everything and give you an ultrasound, just to make sure you want it removed. This is no different.

    The lawsuit has teeth because there is clearly a discrimination in the medical practice here. Why are abortions required to have an ultrasound beforehand? In the case of pre-natal ultrasounds, they are conducted to inspect the health of the embryo or fetus. If it's about to be aborted, its health status is irrelevant.

    The law is a thinly veiled appeal to emotion to guilt trip the woman into not going through with it. That, and it's a total waste of medical resources. The ultrasound costs money, and who is supposed to pay for it? The woman? The taxpayers? The clinics? It is little more than an obstruction to try and prevent an abortion from taking place, and it's an attempt to bypass Roe v Wade.

    It's also definitely a big government attitude, except this time it comes from the side of social conservativism, which you obviously support. You can't be against the health care bill but be in favor of this law. It equally lacks logic and is an intrusive use of power.

    Re: Judge stops Oklahoma abortion law

    Wow she signed an agreement, and is scheduling a hearing and this gets labeled "activism"

    she has not even made any kind of judgment and she is an activist judge

    How dare the parties involved in this case come to an agreement! She should refuse to add her signature and not validate this agreement nonsense.

    What she did was impede the implementation of a law based on her own political beliefs. Thats the definition of an activist judge.

    psst::: It's her choice.

    It's HER body.

    It's certainly not YOUR choice or anybody else's choice.

    Why don't you people get this?

    No-Bod-dee has the right to "MAKE" her look at anything Anything!
