Appeals Court Rules Against Planned Parenthood in Ohio

Timothy Birdnow

Here is an example of the importance of the Federal courts. A Judge has just ruled that Ohio can defund Planned Parenthood. From Breitbart:

Judge Jeffrey Sutton of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit wrote Ohio’s law to defund the abortion vendor does "not violate a woman’s right to obtain an abortion,” that the state "has no obligation to pay for a woman’s abortion,” and that the law doesn’t impose "undue burden” on a woman’s access to an abortion.

"Private organizations do not have a constitutional right to obtain governmental funding to support their activities,” the judge continued. "The State also may choose not to subsidize constitutionally protected activities.”

Would the Ninth Circuit have ruled this way? These judicial nominations are absolutely critical, because they are the difference between judges making laws and judges enforcing them. Had Hillary Clinton been elected how likely is it that an appelate court would have found in favor of Ohio here?

1 That's a giant leap forward -- as a conservative would say (of course, the left would consider it backward). Thank You, Lord!
