High court rejects review of Arizona's 20-week abortion ban

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday turned aside Arizona's appeal to reinstate its law banning most abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

A federal appeals court last year said the restrictions were unconstitutional.

The high court's refusal without comment to intervene now means the provisions passed in 2012 cannot be enforced.

    At a girl's college dormitory, dates were permitted only on Saturday night. One young man showed up on a Tuesday evening, explaining to an older woman in the lobby of the dorm that it was imperative he see a certain young lady immediately.
    "I want to surprise her. You see, I'm her brother."
    "Oh, she'll be surprised all right," said the woman.
    "But think of how surprised I am! I'm her mother!"

    A police recruit was asked during the exam, "What would you do if you had to arrest your own mother?" He answered, "Call for backup."

    I know this is a really touchy subject, but, 20 weeks? Isn't that pretty far along in a pregnancy? Unless there's something life threatening or really wrong, doesn't that seem far into it?

    like so. many..."judge libertine" has over-step boundaries with this illicit ruling...it is rogue judges like this one that lowers the moral bar, attack the dignity of persons and the value of life, redefine societal building blocks, and says there I'd no god...you will have much to account for...for life is short and eternity is long...

    Kinda hard to have a REAL conversation with someone like that especially when they tend to forget WHAT role they are playing at any given time!
