From the Washington Examiner:

A federal judge has blocked Indiana’s ban against aborting a fetus based on its sex, race or disability, a law that was set to go into effect Friday.

Indiana is one of two states with bans on obtaining an abortion based on race, gender or ancestry of a fetus. Gov. Mike Pence signed the law in March after it was passed by the Republican-led legislature. A similar law in North Dakota remains in effect.

U.S. District Court Judge Tanya Walton Pratt granted a preliminary injunction blocking the law from going into effect Friday. The injunction was sought by Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky.

“The injunction was sought by Planned Parenthood…” Think about this. Tax-paying citizens elect representatives in an autonomous state, who enact Constitutional laws that the majority of the people in that state want. Then those taxpayers are forced, by federal law, to fund organizations who sue to overturn those laws. This is just how the founders envisioned it, I’m sure.
