Chilling Words

The Ohio Legislature passed a bill protecting unborn babies being targeted by abortion when diagnosed with Down syndrome.  District Judge Timothy Black, a former president of Planned Parenthood, issued a preliminary injunction against it.  A panel of three judges from the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld Black’s decision.  There was then a request for an “en banc” ruling, that is by the full court, which isn’t easy to get, but they agreed to hear the case.  Perhaps the words of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas had an impact.  Allowing abortion as a constitutional right “based solely on the race, sex, or disability of an unborn child… would constitutionalize the views of the twentieth-century eugenics movement.”  Chilling words.
