Federal judge temporarily blocks new Wisconsin abortion law

(CNN) - A Wisconsin federal judge has granted a temporary restraining order preventing the state from enforcing a new and restrictive abortion law.

The law, signed by Gov. Scott Walker on Friday, bans doctors from performing abortions if they don't have admitting privileges to hospitals within 30 minutes of their practice.

    This is why losing the House and so many governorships in 2010 was such a tragedy. The Repub yahoos want to turn the U.S. into another Saudi Arabia, where a couple families own and control everything, woman have no rights, and religious police keep the masses in line – all in the name of God!

    Sounds like a ruling based on research and common sense. The conservatives will hate it and call it judicial activism. They won!t be able to explain why it is, but that won't stop em.

    The Guns Over People tea potty War on women is a coordinated effort in many states at the same time. 2014 comes quickly for them.

    Wisconsin may have to put their new bumper sticker on hold, "Wisconsin, where government knows what women need."

    A wonderful news. These GOP idiots still are instigated by religion thugs in this nation which is pathetic in 21st century. Let women decide her fate and choice because it is her body. Simple. Make all null and void.

    Thank goodness people are challenging these religious nuts who feel the overwhelming need to inflict their brand of insanity on the rest of us. The decision is between a woman and her doctor. Period.
