Trump overruled again by more Obama judges, this time on abortion…

Two Obama judges on the DC Circuit Court struck down Trump’s policy of preventing illegals who are minors from getting abortions:

THE HILL – The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday ruled against the Trump administration’s policy of blocking undocumented pregnant teenagers in federal custody from obtaining abortions.

In the opinion, the judges wrote that they “are unanimous in rejecting the government’s position that its denial of abortion access can be squared with Supreme Court precedent.”

The Trump administration in 2017 effectively adopted a policy that stopped pregnant teenagers from seeking abortions, even during the earlier months of their pregnancies.

The judges noted in the opinion issued Friday that the policy only applies to minors in federal custody, and that undocumented immigrants 18 years or older in federal custody are allowed to obtain abortions. They also highlighted the policy’s lack of exemptions, including one for rape.

The court was divided in the opinion two to three: Judge Sri Srinivasan and Robert Wilkins, both Obama appointees ruled against the Trump administration. Senior Circuit Judge Laurence Silberman, a Reagan appointee, filed a dissenting opinion.

Last year the Supreme Court threw out a lower court ruling against the Trump administration that allowed a 17-year-old illegal immigrant to get an abortion. It wasn’t really a victory because the girl turned 18 and thus the policy became moot.



But my guess is that this time the courts will have to take up the issue as I fully expect the Trump administration to appeal this decision.

A law and justice writer for the New York Times suggests that if this goes to the Supreme Court, Kavanaugh will have to recuse himself which could be detrimental to the Trump administration:

  1. We have to educate them, provide healthcare, housing etc etc NOW we have to help them murder babies………are you serious? I AM SO damn tired of this send them all back
    get them out of here shut down the border……………..enough

  2. Those rats are so entrenched into our Judicial System they will be harassing the President for the next 5 1/2 years

  3. Satan will open his gates wide to receive these people who are Hell bent on killing babies.

      1. @ruthiedoggiemom Yeah, sometimes I hit the wrong button. Most of the time I delete it. Thanks for letting me know.

  4. Activist judges…the bane of our society. When will we be rid of them? If Barr accomplishes only one thing, I wish it would be to prohibit judges in any court to not rule upon anything but the LAW. Political interpretations should be outlawed once and for all or there will be no justice.

    1. Nice comments,love to give you more up votes,but you know me, no breaking the rules like our judges do.There way or the highway.

    1. NO, good would be enforcing the LAW that makes them anchor babies in the first place.

  5. Dems have a knack for aborting their future voters. And then they wonder why they have to resort to cheating.

  6. A law and justice writer for the New York Times suggests that if this goes to the Supreme Court, Kavanaugh will have to recuse himself

    The Times writer, like most writers there, is speaking out of his rear orifice.

  7. I like the subtle little “Kavanaugh will have to recuse himself” line.

    Conservatives ALWAYS have to follow the rules (even the unwritten rules) and lefty loonies can be as lawless as they want.

    1. Kagan should’ve recused herself from hearing & ruling on Obamacare as she waa an advisor to that administration in her role as Solicitor General, so yeah, rules only apply to R’s.

    1. In this case, killing a baby is even more valuable than an anchor baby to the Left. They prefer the cash up front now rather than votes paid out over decades.

  11. Did Kagan recuse herself during the Obamacare vote? So no he doesn’t. Go screw yourselves. You guys are going to start living by the rules you created. We will not be held to a different standard anymore.
