Judge to Announce Whether He'll Block Ultrasound Law. Guess Who Nominated Him?

A federal judge has announced that he will rule by tomorrow morning a request to block enforcement of a new Wisconsin law signed by Gov. Scott Walker that requires women seeking abortions to first undergo an ultrasound.

The lawsuit which was filed by Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin and the ACLU challenges the part of the law that requires abortionists to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals.

U.S. District Judge William Conley heard arguments Monday in a hastily called hearing. Conley says he will make a decision no later than tomorrow morning on whether the law can remain in effect at least until a July 17 hearing he scheduled on the lawsuit.

So let me look into my crystal ball here and predict what the judge will rule. Hmmm. Let's see. I'll give you one piece of information that should make things pretty clear for you. He was nominated to the federal bench in 2009...by President Barack Obama. So yeah, that law's getting bounced tomorrow morning. I'll betya'.

Update: Yup. The judge has granted a temporary restraining order preventing the state from enforcing the law.

Of course!

Did you think we, the republic, are still governed by democratric process and law?
Or maybe it is now by the new norm, through elite members, who have of late, taken over almost complete control of the process when they don't like the elected outcome, NOT to their favor or liking! They have the final say and doing it now, "unfairly" and quite regularly!
Explain yet again, the total disregard for constitution and the elected process.

Actually never mind, it's well past over.

And then there is the flip side to these new laws. They all are pretty much the same, coming from the same place, and insist on the same regulations in various states. What if they have nothing to do with reducing abortions, but everything to do with increasing the price? Even ultrasounds cost money.
The abortion trade ends up going to whoever can conform to the regulations. How much you wanna bet there are already people out there ready and capable of conforming to these regulations?
Another political game of bootleggers and baptists. The baptists preach piously of the evils of alcohol, and the bootleggers get to sell a crap product for high prices. This is essentially the same thing I see going down with 'gay marriage'. The homosexual lobby preaches about equal rights, while the divorce lawyers rub their hands with glee. So, we've got Republicans pushing laws in multiple states, laws that were written by some industry lobbyists. It is a safe bet to assume there are some bootleggers somewhere, who will benefit from these new laws.
There should have been a war 1972. If nothing else, Christians should have carved out spaces in this land that could be free of innocent blood spilled. But they bought the 'one nation indivisible line' I guess.
