A federal court struck down a law in Kentucky on Wednesday that requires women seeking an abortion to first undergo an ultrasound and hear a description of the embryo or fetus.
The U.S. District Court Western District of Kentucky ruled that the state law is unconstitutional because it violates the free-speech rights of the patient and doctor, court documents showed.
The law “does not advance a substantial governmental interest, is not drawn to achieve the government’s interests, and prevents no actual harm,” U.S. District Judge David Hale wrote in his ruling.
Amazing what you can convince yourself of once you say that an unborn human being is not an actual human being. Then you can say ridiculous things like showing women an ultrasound “prevent no actual harm.” There is harm to both the women and the babies.
Judges are now just super-legislators.
