Imagine that, the Feds put a stop to stupid anti-choice laws

This doesn’t surprise me one bit;

“Nothing in the text of the statute permits physicians to use their medical judgment to avoid disclosing information that is untrue, misleading or irrelevant,” she (U.S. District Judge Karen Schreier) wrote.

Oh, but this truly becomes ridiculous;

In arguments over the law on Monday, lawyers for Attorney General Marty Jackley argued that legislators simply intended for Planned Parenthood to provide a checklist for mental health risk factors.

Checklist? This isn’t Jiffy Lube. This is a place that provides many low income & younger single women health services (besides abortion). I think Planned Parenthood knows what they are doing. Nothing to see here, please move along.

BTW, it is HB 1217 not 1214 like the article says.
