Federal Judge Henry E. Hudson has ruled that the Virginia law that requires abortions to be performed by doctors is invalid during the first trimester, opening the way for pretty much anybody to abort babies, giving those who once performed abortions with coat hangers in back allies an opportunity to resume their old trade.
Now that Judge Hudson’s superior wisdom has prevailed, I have a suggestion for the Virginia legislature: go out of business. It would save Virginia taxpayers a lot of money if we simply turned the lawmaking and rule-setting function over to the judiciary and eliminated the legislative middlemen. Being ruled by un-elected judges with the Solomon-style wisdom of Judge Henry E Hudson also removed the burden on the citizens to bother voting for the people to represent them.
We can hardly wait for one of Judge Hudson's associates to rule that post-birth abortion is not only legal, but a judicial sacrament.
A win-win for everyone.
