Appeals Court Decision
“A federal appeals court on Tuesday cleared the way for a 17-year-old immigrant held in custody in Texas to obtain an abortion.
The full U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled 6-3 in favor of the teen. The decision overturned a ruling by a three-judge panel of the court that at least temporarily blocked her from getting an abortion. The Trump administration could still appeal the decision to the Supreme Court.” (Source Chicago Tribune HERE)
“ One of the six appeals court judges that sided with the teen Tuesday, Patricia Millett, wrote that the court’s decision “rights a grave constitutional wrong by the government.” All six judges were appointed by Democratic presidents.
Three judges, all of whom were appointed by Republican presidents, dissented, with Judge Brett Kavanaugh writing that his colleagues’ decision “is ultimately based on a constitutional principle as novel as it is wrong: a new right for unlawful immigrant minors in U.S. Government detention to obtain immediate abortion on demand.”
These also are sayings of the wise: To show partiality in judging is not good: (Proverb 24:23)
These things also belong to the wise,…. Both what is said before concerning fearing God and the king; these belong to the wise and unwise, rich and poor, great and small; particularly judges and civil magistrates, and all subordinate governors, who have, or ought to have, a competency of wisdom; these ought to fear God and the king, as well as private subjects; and also what follows after, especially in this verse and..(Excerpt Gils Biblel Commentary HERE)
In My Opinion
If you discern that the final decision was split between six liberal vs. three Conservative political appointed judges, does it make you wonder about the wisdom of changing the original Constitution method to appoint judges to the present method?
Are political appointed liberal judges more wise and/or more good than Conservative judges is the question that needs to be discerned, in my opinion.
If interested, read a Citizen Tom post before you discern the wisdom of the how and whys of the sad, or mad 864 Federal Judges presently sitting in our Courts.
Does this issue make you sad and/or mad?
