Obvious bias detected in blocking of Down syndrome law

In December, Ohio Governor John Kasich signed the Down Syndrome Unborn Baby Protection Act, which bars abortion based solely on a diagnosis of Down syndrome. Paula Westwood of Right to Life of Greater Cincinnati tells OneNewsNow that at the time the legislature considered the bill, there was an argument the measure didn't go far enough.

"A bill like this is obviously necessary," Westwood shares. "It won't protect all the babies, but it will protect these little children and their parents."

The American Civil Liberties Union filed suit and Federal District Court Judge Timothy Black, appointed to the bench by President Obama, blocked the law which was scheduled to go into effect next Friday.

According to Westwood, the secular media is ignoring one aspect of the judge's decision – an aspect that pro-family/pro-life media outlets are not ignoring.

"... This judge is a former director and then president of Planned Parenthood here in Cincinnati," she states.

Westwood notes that there are times when judges, federal or otherwise, recuse themselves from cases to avoid even the slightest hint of bias – but pro-abortion Judge Black, she points out, chose not do so.
