    Abortion Legislation Committee | NZ Parliament

    My name is Ruth Dyson. I’m the member of Parliament for Port Hills. Earlier this month, the Hon Andrew Little, Minister of Justice, introduced legislation to Parliament, and Parliament established a new and special select committee to consider this legislation. The bill is about reforming our abortion law. It’s about decriminalising abortion. It’s about moving abortion into the same regulatory framework as other health services. It really modernises what is considerably outdated legislation. Our committee consists of seven members of Parliament. I am the chairperson. The Hon Amy Adams, MP for Selwyn, is the deputy chair. And we have opened submissions on the bill. They will be open until Thursday…

    Roe v. Wade – Visual Guide (Pt. 3/3) | Wardenclyffe Academy

    Before applying these conclusions in detail to the issue of abortion and then measuring that application against Texas’ criminal abortion laws to determine their constitutionality, the Supreme Court briefly considered Wade’s arguments. Citing the well-known facts of fetal development, Wade first argued that the unborn are persons “within the language and meaning of the Fourteenth Amendment” which would make the unborn’s right to life guaranteed by the Amendment. However, the Supreme Court was not persuaded by this argument for three reasons. First, it observed that there had been no cases in which the unborn were considered persons within the meaning of the Fourteenth Amendment. Second, it could only find support…

    Top Supreme Court Cases in 2019-2020 [Part 2/2] | The Judicial Review

    Um… Where was I? Oh, yeah. Last time, we reviewed some past and upcoming cases on the rights of non-cis heteronormative people in the workplace, mental health in the legal system, the DREAMers, and racism in corporate media management. Because apparently that wasn’t enough, today we’ll cover more cases that the Supreme Court will rule on in the coming months, and how and why they are important in a time when the political winds are escalating into a seriously dangerous political Sharknado against a wide variety of social liberties. Are you ready kids? (Sorry… that.. that was bad Can we just -can we just move past that? I’d appreciate that…

    Roe v. Wade – Visual Guide (Pt. 2/3) | Wardenclyffe Academy

    With neither the plaintiffs nor the defendant satisfied with the District Court’s ruling, all parties appealed to the Supreme Court. Roe, Dr. Hallford, and the Does appealed the District Court’s denial of their request for injunctive relief while Wade appealed the District Court’s decision to grant the plaintiffs’ request for declaratory relief. Similar to the District Court, the Supreme Court began by considering whether the parties involved satisfied the requirements of justiciability and standing, and whether abstention was warranted. Accepting as true the facts alleged by Roe, including her situation as a pregnant single woman who was prevented from having an abortion by Texas’ criminal abortion statutes, the Supreme Court…

    Roe v. Wade – Visual Guide (Pt. 1/3) | Wardenclyffe Academy

    The Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade laid the legal foundation for the treatment of abortion in the United States and has since become a major flashpoint between two political factions. One considers it to be the foundational case establishing women’s reproductive rights while the other considers it to be the foundational case denying personhood to a class of people (i.e. the unborn). Despite these political factions frequently invoking Roe v. Wade, many do not understand its origin, its journey from the District Court to the Supreme Court, and the nature of the Supreme Court’s ruling. Roe v. Wade began in Dallas County, Texas, and centered around constitutional challenges to…

    Roe v. Wade: A Legal History | Part Two: The Right to Privacy

    By the time Roe v. Wade came down, she’d actually already had the baby, so the reason the case continued was because there was a desire both by litigants and by the Supreme Court to address the issue, not because it was a individual pressing case that someone brought. The first argument was in the winter of 1971 but two Justices had suddenly died prior to that argument so they were short on the bench. They have the oral argument in Roe. Shortly after, they have the oral argument in a case called Eisenstadt versus Baird, which was about extending the right to use contraception beyond married couples to single…

    DONALD TRUMP JUST SIGNED AN ANTI ABORTION LEGISLATION

    DONALD TRUMP JUST SIGNED AN ANTI-ABORTION LEGISLATION BY KALEE BROWNAPRIL President Trump has been very outspoken about his stance on abortion. Last year, he even claimed that women who have abortions should face some sort of legal punishment. He has also publicly spoke out against Planned Parenthood, specifically opposing their abortion services. During a Republican presidential debate, Trump recognized that Planned Parenthood �helps millions and millions of women� who turn to the organization for services like breast and cervical-cancer screenings. However, he also explained that he would gladly defund it because it performs abortions, something he clearly doesn�t support. One of the first steps President Trump actually took on his…
