A British judge ordered Friday that an abortion be performed on a mentally disabled woman who is 22 weeks pregnant, despite objections from the woman and her mother. Justice Nathalie Lieven admits in the ruling of the “heartbreaking” case that it’s an “immense intrusion” to order the abortion against the woman’s will, but argued that it’s in the best interest of the woman.“I am acutely conscious of the fact that for the State to order a woman to have a termination where it appears that she doesn't want it is an immense intrusion,” the justice said. “I have to operate in [her] best interests, not on society's views of termination."

Comments:

The judge's decision is based on what is in the best interest of the NHS. The state does not want to pay for this child so the state has decided to terminate the child's life.

Wait for it.. NHS will soon not authorize treatment for elderly or disabled individuals- This is what Germany did preceding the Aryanification of Germany.. life needs to be valued- or all lives don’t matter..

FTA: "“I think she would like to have a baby in the same way she would like to have a nice doll,” she said, pointing out that she didn’t fully comprehend what having a baby entails" (says the judge). Well, your Honor, every parent I know would have said exactly the same thing after their first child is born. This is pure evil. Ramona (the Pest)

Check out the 1927 Supreme Court decision “Buck v. Bell”. The Supreme Court has never overturned Buck v. Bell. This is the court playing God.

Why the judge completely disregarded the right of the baby to live is beyond me. It is all about the woman and the expense to the state now, isn't it? When the state took over the Medical responsibility for the entire society, it failed to realize it also assumed the full responsibility for the health of every living individual in their jurisdiction. Now they fail that responsibility- miserably. That baby is a living human being now and it has equal rights to life as anyone. Except, those rights are invisible to this judicial monster. Her comment could as well have been made in Hitler's Germany of 1942. This is what liberalism brings to the human experience.

This is truly a despicable "judgment." It demonstrates why the Government should NEVER have any control over personal health and welfare decisions, which is where the Dim proposals for socialized national health care O(such as "Medicare for All") would be truly disastrous for our Country. The Government in charge of health care? How about fixing the VA Health Care system first?

How exquisitely insulting this rotten judge is. How dare she assume that the baby is going to be disabled in any way. So where are the control freak feminists who should be protesting this decision by the judge? If there is a case that calls for protests by everybody, it is this one. Not only are you killing a baby judge, but you are killing that woman's grandchild as well.

I understand the 'reasoning' behind this decision. I worked for a WIC office for several years and saw a developmentally challenged woman with a baby. The nurses had to guide her through the whole process and when it was over, she would sit on the cold steps and lay the baby on them beside her. I don't know her living conditions but I do remember thinking she should never have had that child. Now for this instance, I think the court would be better served seeking out whoever impregnated this woman. She's obviously a child mentally and I'd call this rape. As for the baby, let her have it and adopt it out. Then make sure she never gets pregnant again.

Once the young generation has been desensitized to the reality of abortion the next phase is to convince them that Big Brother knows best about just who should breed.(sorry about the run on sentence)

A woman was critically injured when she was attacked early today near DePaul University’s Lincoln Park campus. The 22-year-old victim was rushed to Illinois Masonic Medical Center overnight in critical condition, but she has since been stabilized. Based on the scene near DePaul University, where she recently graduated, she had lost a lot of blood. Police have since determined this may have been a sexually motivated attack in which the victim fought back. Area North detectives spent much of the morning investigating a block-long stretch of Halsted near Fullerton, just steps away from the DePaul campus.

Illinois will become less reliant on coal-fired power plants by the end of the year. Under an arrangement with the state, Vistra Energy soon will shut down 40 percent of its eight-facility fleet in central and southern Illinois. Phil Gonet, president of the Illinois Coal Association, said that could cause problems. “We think it’s very dangerous to embark on a policy to replace baseload power, which operates all the time and is available all the time, with unreliable energy from renewables,” Gonet said.

The Illinois Senate has approved a sweeping abortion rights bill. The 34 – 20 vote comes amid a time when several other states have passed laws essentially banning the practice. The bill establishes a woman’s “fundamental right” to an abortion… and states that “a fertilized egg, embryo or fetus does not have independent rights.” It also repeals the Illinois abortion law of 1975, eliminating spousal consent, waiting periods, criminal penalties for abortion providers and restrictions on abortion facilities. The bill now heads to Governor Pritzker. He campaigned on a promise to make Illinois the most progressive state in the country for reproductive rights.

In January 1942, 11 Naval nurses and one Filipino nurse were taken prisoner by the Japanese. They spent nearly three years as POW’s in concentration camps where they continued to nurse the sick and injured. They were never formally recognized by the U.S. government as heroes. But to the men they cared for, their service will never be forgotten. The nurses became to be known as the 12 Anchors. Their selfless service never stopped. All of the nurses received the Bronze Star and a Prisoner of War medal. WGN’s Marcella Raymond has their story.

It’s déjà vu all over again. President Trump has given the hanging party a first-rate piece of rope to use against him. His tweet will not live in infamy, but his cringe-worthy “go back” language rhymes with many of his earlier self-inflicted mistakes.

So it was Sunday, with Democrats engulfed in a vicious civil war and Trump’s poll numbers rising against the 2020 candidates as the public begins to realize how far left they are goin
