Judge rules North Carolina’s 20-week abortion ban is unconstitutional

A federal judge has declared a North Carolina law banning women from having abortions after the 20th week of pregnancy except in an urgent medical emergency as unconstitutional. The court gave state legislators 60 days before the ruling takes effect to allow them to amend abortion restrictions or appeal his ruling to a higher court.

Activists liberal judiciary strikes again! Not a damn thing in the constitution even remotely reference abortion or any other medical rights. The tenth amendment states quite explicitly that if a power was not specifically given to the federal government it's not their business.

18-20 weeks is a reasonable ban time, so why?

Perhaps it's time to really expand the legal limit of abortion to like the 340th trimesters. clear out a few activist judges.

It's disgusting that pig men should be allowed to decide what a woman can do with her own body. Until what is on the inside is on the outside, it is not a person; it is a parasite. Women should have the right to terminate any pregnancy they want without having to give reasons for her decision. Women are not incubators and not every women looks at kids as a blessing. So the rape victim that doesn't find out she is pregnant until 21 weeks, would now be forced to carry that parasite inside her? Absolutely disgusting.

I say we should be able to abort up to the age of 6. By 6 you should know if your kid is an asshole or not and if they should have been aborted.

You can save a child at 5 months (20 weeks). There is a real chance at saving the baby and giving him/her health care. Today, a woman doesn't have to gestate for 9 months. Modern technology can help with the baby's growth and development from then on. The insistence to kill rather than save from the Left is insane. You as a woman have the chance to save a baby at 5 months, yet still CHOOSE to kill the "clump of cells" that is viable because of today's medical technology. We aren't using our neonatal resources to their greatest potential.

State sovereignty, please. Time to start ignoring these activist judges. If California and New York can ignore federal immigration laws and declare themselves sanctuary states for the illegals, we can declare North Carolina, Utah, and many others, Sanctuary States for the Unborn.

Take it to the Supreme Court. These activist judges should all be removed from office and all replaced with constitutionalists.
