Abortion Supporters File Suit to Stop Bill Banning Race-Based Abortion Saying… It’s Racist?
This one is a head-turning bunch of idiocy. In Arizona lawmakers are trying to outlaw sex-selective and race-based abortions. But the ACLU and the NAACP is filing a suit against the law saying that the bill that wants to stop an abortion that is based on race is… uh… racist.
Hello. Is anyone in there?
The ACLU has asked a federal appeals court to throw out an Arizona law banning sex-selective and race-based abortions, claiming the law is itself racist.
Lawyers asked the San Francisco-based Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, one of the most overturned appeals courts in the nation, to reconsider the lawsuit filed on behalf of the NAACP and the National Asian-Pacific American Women’s Forum.
Gov. Jan Brewer signed the “Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act of 2011,” making Arizona the first state to ban abortion based on racist or sexist discrimination. Abortionists violating its terms face a maximum 3.5 years in prison and the loss of their medical license. Any medical professional in the abortion industry who conceals such a violation faces a $10,000 fine.
But its opponents claim the law is based on racial stereotypes, and thus, a law to prevent racial discrimination is a form of discrimination.
So, if every black child was aborted in Arizona, the ACLU and the NAACP thinks that would be… a good idea?
I just don’t have the words.
