Federal judge blocks new Florida abortion law

A federal court decision blocking parts of an abortion-regulation law hours before it was set to take effect is far from the end of Florida’s legal battle over the issue, advocates on both sides said Friday.

U.S. District Court Judge Robert Hinkle issued an injunction against the law late Thursday night. It would have prevented funding for Planned Parenthood and required state regulators to inspect half of all abortion documents each year.

“I think he’s wrong on the law,” said John Stemberger, president of the Orlando-based Florida Family Policy Council. “I think [the Legislature] is clearly justified saying we’re only going to provide funding to non-abortion providers.”

The injunction is temporary while the case makes its way through the court. A spokeswoman for the Agency for Health Care Administration, which oversees health clinics, said officials were reviewing the ruling and haven’t made a decision whether to appeal.

    ABORTION IS MURDER, PLAIN AND SIMPLE. Christians have not taken the unified stand to oppose such a act to be lawful. How can God be used in the phrase “God Bless America”, when America has blood on its hands?

    It is so blatant now. This has nothing to do with the Constitution. It does indicate that these judicials are part of a CONSPIRACY to dictate to America.
    Forget the fact that the majority of Americans are
    1. Against Obamacare
    2. Against homosexual marriage
    3. Against abortion
    4 Against illegal aliens
    5. Against illegal aliens drawing welfare.

    Forget the American people totally. And not a SINGLE word in the Constitution that deals with ANY of these issues.
    So the “declare” that it is “unconstitutional” and we can do nothing to stop them.
    This IS dictatorship worse that King George ever was.
    So when it the revolution? When are we going to involk “when in the course of human events. …….”
    The elite actually believe they have ALL the bases covered.
    And they do, except for ONE.
    Ii Chronicles 7:14.
    People of God. Now is the time to repent. Repent of failing to stand up against evil.

      I agree, it’s as if the state politicians vote the way of the people while knowing the activist judges will rule against it letting them off the hook.
      If the politicians truly were voting for the people they would reject and ignore the rulings of the activist fed judge and do what the people want and tell the feds to kiss obumba’s ring..

        That would be STATES RIGHTS.
