I looked up a little more about the judge that voted on that decision. U.S. District Judge Phyllis Hamilton.

Seems some school district in california wanted to teach a muslin and islam history course that involved the students become muslim for 2 weeks and praying to allah. The ACLU took it to court and lost. Heres the ruling and an article. Notice on the second page where it talks about roll playing and how fun and effective it is for kids.

RULING:
www.blessedcause.org...

ARTICLE AND LINK:
However, U.S. District Judge Phyllis J. Hamilton, a Clinton appointee, dismissed the lawsuit against the Byron Union School District, arguing the Muslim unit does not promote religion, and therefore does not violate the First Amendment's clause against religious establishment.
The controversial role-playing course requires kids to recite Muslim prayers and verses of the Quran in class. Students also are required to give up things like watching television or eating candy for a day to simulate Islamic fasting during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
"From the beginning, you and your classmates will become Muslims," the Student Guide portion of the Islam module instructs seventh-graders as an introduction to the material.

www.freerepublic.com...

Now does that show you what an idiot that judge is. And the sad thing is that this partial birth abortion ruling does have a nation wide affect. It affects all 900 of the planned parenthood abortion clinics. All because it effects a womans right to chose so says the judge. If you ask me any woman who would choose to murder shouldn't have a right to chose.

And enough of this crap about abortions for medical reasons. Heres a link to a website that surveys women and why they had an abortion and it is categorized by state. You will see the tiny minority is for a valid reason such as health and rape. The majority are performed because murder is legal and is a easy way out of responsibility.

I see that rather then dealing with the issue presented i.e. the law was written to become a cause celeb wedge issue for the 2004 election; you choose to say the Judge was bias - An offer an ad hominem as a distraction from avoiding the issue at hand.

You are then saying (cutting away all the baloney) Judge who made the finding in Abortion case is bias (Citing a case which proves nothing in support of your charge) because of a decision in the Islam case. Since she was bias there she must be bias in all her decisions; therefore the decision in the Abortion case is bias too and must be dismissed as having any merit.

This is called circular reasoning. Circular reasoning is what children do most often and is called magical thinking. In any event…………..it is fallacious.

The judge, U.S. District Judge Phyllis Hamilton, whom you so callously slander, calling her a bigot, is a highly thought of and well respected moderate African-American Judge. She has come under attack by the Right Wing because in her decision on partial birth abortion she had the temerity to point out what Congress was up to and the false scientific information (LIES) Congress used in support of writing such a law.

As I said from the start, the law was politically motivated - Designed as a wedge issue for the national elections. If you still believe that Republicans have your best interests in mind, you’re sadly mistaken and closed mined to the facts. I understand – what I suggest - how threatening this may be to your core beliefs but to remain that way is for you to assent to being used.

And I find that to be most sad.

You continue to say all this but not answer why republicans also voted against the partial birth abortion ban and why some democrats voted for it. This was a vote on right and wrong not politics.

The judge said in the islam school case that forcing students to pray to allah and make belive they were muslim for 2 weeks was constitutional. So long as it was makebelive. That is insane. It shows she is a stinking idiot.

75% of the u.s. population is against partial birth abortion. The congress and house don't want it and neither does the president. But this woman says it is o.k. Make sense to anyone. Not me.

Abortion a wedge issue? Good thing the republicans made this law to have it fail or abortion would have slipped on the back burner as an issue...
I'm being sarcastic again in case you didn't know. Heres a google search for anti abortion.
www.google.com...
989,000 sites.
Heres one pro abortion.
www.google.com...
1,030,000 sites.

As if this wasn't a wedge issue since roe vs. wade anyways. Get real.

Bush's partial birth abortion ban shot down by California Supreme Court Judge.

I just saw the subject you started this string with……………….It is inaccurate, untrue and misleading. Have you any idea of how out judiciary functions?

It should read:

Bush's partial birth abortion ban shot down by Federal District Court Judge in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California

What your subject line said is a State Supreme Court Judge had overturned a federal law. That’s a legal and procedural impossibility.

Also it is not the ‘infamous’ Ninth Circuit - that dreaded coven for liberal activist judges – you made reference to………………The Ninth Circuit is an Appellate court. Appealed decisions would be heard by this court.

You might ask, if thee was such a commitment to banning PBA, why didn’t the Ashcroft Justice Department take an Appeal to the next level and then to the Supreme Court. Rather then abandoning the issue at the lowest level of the Judiciary?

I will not bother with the rest of your reply because I see your mind is closed- unwilling to learn. Let’s just say, we agree to disagree and leave it at that…………..

Have a nice life.

Why leave it at the level it is at. Because the ruling already has a nationwide effect even though it is just a california supreme court official who voted the law unconstitutional. Hamilton's ruling applies to Planned Parenthood clinics and their doctors, who perform roughly half the nation's abortions. There are around 900 of those clinics nationwide.

There are other cases for the same reason going on in new york and elsewhere. If the other state supreme courts rulings differ then it will go to the federal supreme court. If the federal supreme says it's unconstitutional to ban it then it will become legal in even the states where it is currently banned unless there is an underlined stipulation to allow a state to choose. That is why this ruling is so terrible. It does have a natiowide affect and it will go to the federal supreme court. Hopefully those justices have a little more common sense that an idiot who would force kids to become muslims for 2 weeks.

NO. It's not a STATE COURT. It is a Federal District Court It is the lowest court in the Federal system of courts.

AND, NO! It only applies to the District it was decided in...............

You have no idea of how one of the cornerstones of our system of government works. Do you!

Give it up. You’re beginning to become annoying………………

A federal judge supported murder bottom line. It has a natiowide affect for all the clinics affected.

Guess we'll have to resign ourselves to being friends that don't agree on everything. Makes discussion more interesting. Otherwise, we'd be taking turns singing to the choir, and that is pretty boring!


I am so glad we can agree to disagree! After reading the post before this one I was thinking we were going to go the other direction. I guess you really are more open minded then I previously thought ...thank you

************************************************************

Those arguing about this issue being political -

I see where you are coming from but when it all comes down.....it doesn't matter one bit what political party you are registered to. Take a look at these stats and really think about it. At the bottom you'll see that more people are becoming "pro-life" and I do believe that shows the political side but all in all I think the world is pro-choice!

Abortion Statistics - World - U.S. - Demographics - Reasons
Abortion Statistics - World

In 54 countries (61% of the world population) abortions are legal.

According to a Gallup Poll in January, 2001 - People who considered themselves to be pro-life rose from 33% to 43% in the past 5 years, and people who considered themselves to be pro-choice declined from 56% to 48%.
The majority of these statistics were taken from The Alan Guttmacher Institute.

These are discusting results. As far as I am concerned, 6.1% of abortions have non-stupid reasons.

BUT, there is hope. Pro-lifers are on the rebound, that is truely awesome news.

Although we can not change the whole world, we can change America.

I actually agree with your disgust. These results were a little shocking. Although what I came away with was a reality check. More then half of all unmarried women chose to abort. To me that reinforces the need to keep the procedure available.

Agree with the discust? Good, I am glad to hear that.

Although perhaps we should teach our kids that people need healthy strong relationships before sleeping with them.

I would say that abstinance should be taught more, and promoted more, but I think that's a pipe dream.

Men just want to get their nut more often than not, and young women don't know much better.

AHHHH, WE ARE AGREEING TOO MUCH. ERROR ERROR ERROR.

I had something to add to it, but was just changing my avatar. So...

Being that personal responcibility is the goal (as we agreed upon above), that we should not offer easy solutions because people can not control themselves.

Sex should be for marriage (although most married women would agree, and married men would grumble about it being unfair) and strong relationships.

If that is true, then why would we need abortion in the first place. We wouldn't. Abortion is becoming more and more used. But ask yourself why?

Well, I'll tell you. With the decline in lifelong marriages and commited relationships, people are moving from dealing with problems and working hard, to do what you want and take the easy way out.

Marriage too hard? Get a divorce.
Reading too tough? Turn on the TV and turn off brain
Learning sucks? Be a waitress, I hear there are awesome retirement benifits for lifelong waitresses
You a man? Got your nut off but made a baby? Just run away, the state takes too damn long and is ineffective. YOU CAN GET AWAY WITH IT!
You a woman? Got your sex on but made a baby? Have an abortion. No fuss no muss.

We are becoming a drive through country where things are wanted easy and fast. Does this not fit right in with the Abortion generation?

OK....I knew it was too good to last


"Have an abortion...No fuss no muss"

"Learning sucks? Be a waitress, I hear there are awesome retirement benifits for lifelong waitresses"

"Sex should be for marriage (although most married women would agree, and married men would grumble about it being unfair) and strong relationships."


Any chance you'd care to reword any of the above?

I haven't read all the above threads, so apologise if this has already been posted. I am against this form of barbarism, as I have stated in other threads.

I am going to post a whole article and include the link. The reason is that the article includes a photograph of an aborted foetus which some people may not wish to see. However, the article is relevant, if rather belligerant.



In a ruling that was sicker and more vile than quite possibly any other judicial legislation in recent memory, San Francisco’s satanic U.S. District Judge Phyllis Hamilton declared unconstitutional a ban on the barbaric practice of partial-birth abortion, contending that it was irrelevant if the soon-to-be-born infants suffered in pain during the genocidal slaughter.

Irrelevant? What kind of abhorrent individual would utter such heartless nonsense? I suppose the same type of person that had no problem letting a Nazi butcher kill a fully-formed child that breathes, has a heartbeat, can move its fingers and toes, has blood coursing through its veins, and is able to feel pain. Let’s be very clear: what we’re talking about is a LIVING BEING, and these monsters want to allow the following procedure to take place. For starters, the baby’s fully-formed body (except for its head) is removed feet-first from the mother’s womb. Next, the abortionist rams a pair of scissors through the child’s temple, then sucks out the victim’s brain with a vacuum-like device until the baby’s skull collapses upon itself. Lastly, the unborn human being’s dead body is pulled from the mother’s womb and discarded --- thrown away. This, ladies and gentlemen, is the ugly reality of partial-birth abortion.

It is, without mincing words, the most appalling form of murder in existence today, especially when we consider that it is being performed against the least deserving in our society – the innocent and helpless. What makes matters worse is the type of devils who support this practice: the New World Order Rockefeller eugenicists who see it as a form of population control; the ruthless Chinese communists who hold absolutely no regard for human life; and amoral sociopaths such as Bill and Hillary Clinton (of the deadly Clinton Body Count fame). These are the demonic forces which have aligned themselves behind partial-birth abortion.

Amazingly, in a culture that bends over backwards to protect the civil rights of murderers, rapists, illegal immigrants, and savagely depraved predators, how can we allow such a violent crime to be committed against those who should be the most prized – innocent babies with their entire lives in front of them? The overwhelmingly black, negative karma being created by this slaughter against the unborn will surely affect those who condone it. I, for one, am saying in the strongest terms possible that this act is utterly brutal, murderous, and unpardonable, and casts a pall over this nation which envelopes it in shame. Infanticide – a hate crime of the worst sort – is being committed here, and we can no longer turn a blind eye. It’s time to start screaming bloody murder.
