Well, I’m not surprised. Even though an overwhelming percentage of the folks in this state would like to see this become law, the most powerful governor in Arkansas history is trying to deny us a say. This will get interesting. It is apparent that the veto will be overridden by our representatives per their constituents’ wishes. This will probably wind up in our State Supreme Court and I’ve seen them in action. Not good! They have been guilty of judicial tyranny in the past.
This effort could find its way to the highest court in the land.
I am happy to live in a state where the majority values life. I hope the will of the people prevails.
You may see the story here.
A good simulated pic of a 20 week old here.
Several hours after I posted this, the “Arkansas Senate overrides veto of abortion bill.” It appears that litigation against the bill will begin soon.
Chris no surprise is true. We live in a nation of tyrants at every level of government; for the most part politicians and appointed judges are pillars of respectability as thin as a pair of newspaper paper shoes. Abortion advocates champion the lack of accountability for two people’s actions; two tyrants are demanding laws to sanction murder of an unborn child.
These elite godless people constantly run to catch the latest bus of immorality with the intent to hijack the bus determining to slam it into the majority of moral people who do not want to ride in their bus. I hope that your state representatives will flatten the tires on their buses. If your representatives are successful, the opposition will as you say appeal to the windbags of the court to reinflate their tires.
I remember a man of God who used to invite folks to “Get on board the Bible bus”; where women and children (and the unborn on board) are treated according to the maker’s instruction with respect (trying hard to be politically correct).
In that, those who show respect for God and His ways and do not run after every bus driven by camouflaged political tyrants in which every bench on the bus has cloaked judges who posture supreme tyranny.
I also hope the will of the people in your state prevails.
Your symbolic use of a bus is very appropriate, Manny. I remember the “Bible bus” and J. Vernon McGee. I grew up with him as my Mom was a fan and listened daily. Even though he is no longer among us physically, his “Though the Bible” radio broadcasts are still popular. It is the only Bible study listed in my links.
Thank you for wishing my state the best. Democratic Gov. Mike Beebe is concerned about the cost of a similar challenge where “Arkansas had to pay nearly $148,000 in attorneys’ fees to the plaintiffs in a lawsuit challenging a 1997 late-term abortion ban that a federal appeals court overturned.” (1) He has also said that he believes the bill to be unconstitutional.
I guess the statement agreed upon by the thirteen colonies in 1776 is no longer true:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life (my emphasis), Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
What happened to the right to Life? As you have aptly mentioned re-inflating tires, I think many opinions of self need to be deflated and I think it will be happening soon.
I always appreciate your comments.
