Oh no. Not an 1864 law
A judge formally lifted the Roe-imposed ban on Arizona’s abortion law and the media went into full AP mode. That’s Abortion Propaganda mode.As expected, the stories quoted abortion lobbyists heavily and those opposed lightly, if at all.
The argument was this was an 1864 law. The New York Times said, “Arizona Judge Reinstates Strict Abortion Ban From 1864.”
The Arizona Republic said, “Arizona’s 1864 law banning abortion in most circumstances in effect, judge rules.”
The implication was its age made it obsolete. After all, the ban predated statehood by 48 years.
Other old laws include the murder ban which predates statehood by at least 4,000 years. Given the light sentences for the crime and its low priority in Chicago, where police solve only 1 in 6 murders, perhaps liberals want murder legalized along with heroin and pedophilia.
Brittany Fonteno, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Arizona, an abortion provider, told the Arizona Republic, “Today’s ruling by the Pima County Superior Court has the practical and deplorable result of sending Arizonans back nearly 150 years. No archaic law should dictate our reproductive freedom and how we live our lives today.”
Actually the law goes back 158 years but “nearly 150 years” is that new math that liberals adopted and not the racist arithmetic I try to use.
Going back nearly 150 years puts you to a time when there were no gasoline-powered cars.
Going back nearly 150 years puts you to a time when there were no electric lights.
Going back nearly 150 years puts you to a time when there were no air conditioners.
In short, we are looking at California in a few years thanks to rolling blackouts and coming bans on real cars.
