'Clear Flouting of Roe v. Wade': Court Strikes Down Anti-Choice Bill in Wisconsin

Lauren McCauley, staff writer

Striking down a state effort to "politically interfere" with a woman's right to choose, a federal appeals court on Monday declared a Wisconsin law unconstitutional in a ruling reproductive rights advocates say is both a "victory" and an important precedent for an upcoming Supreme Court decision.

In his searing rebuke, Judge Richard Posner with the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, said the law was a "clear flouting of Roe v. Wade."

Although Governor Walker will now ascend to a higher level in the GOP now that a couple of "activist judges" (foxspeak) have struck down one of his signature "reforms", lets hope the SCOTUS considers this ruling a viablle precedent when they hear the Texas case.
