For those of you heading up to the Capitol this morning for the Stand With Arizona Women rally, there is breaking news from the U.S. Supreme Court. Arizona's petition to the court requesting review of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals decision striking down the Arizona Tea-Publican legislature's 20-week abortion restrictions, Horne v. Isaacson (13-402), has been DENIED. The Order list is Here.
Lyle Denniston at SCOTUSblog.com reports, Court bypasses abortion test case:
The Supreme Court on Monday chose to bypass the first case to reach it testing a new round of state laws restricting abortion rights. Without comment and without any noted dissents, the Court refused to hear an Arizona case involving a ban on abortions at 20 weeks of pregnancy. The case was Horne v. Isaacson (13-402).
Arizona's legislative session opens today with a major defeat for Mullah Cathi Herrod and her Christian Taliban at the Center for Arizona Policy (CAP), and her allies in the anti-choice, anti-constitutional rights for women movement. It is a major victory for women's rights.
Let's make this the first in a series of victories for women's rights this year.
