A New York Judge handed down one ruling that left the Pro-Abortion Lobby seething with rage

Democrats across the country are using the abortion issue as a rallying cry to turn out their base in November. 

But Democrats in New York may have to come up with another rally cry for voters in the Empire State.

And a New York Judge handed down one ruling that left the Pro-Abortion Lobby seething with rage.

Abortion is on the ballot in several states across the country this fall.

In 2023, the New York State Legislature passed the so-called “Equal Protection of Law Amendment.” 

The law prohibits discrimination based on “pregnancy outcomes” or “gender expression.” 

“The proposed amendment would also add ethnicity, national origin, age, disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, pregnancy, pregnancy outcomes and reproductive healthcare and autonomy to the list,” MSN reported.

Republicans have pointed out that this language would allow men to claim they are a female and then participate in women’s sports.

Voters must approve the amendment in November before it can take effect.

However, New York Attorney General Letitia James made one mistake that ruined everything for the Pro-Abortion Lobby.

Under New York law, the Attorney General is required to issue a written opinion on any new amendments within 20 days of the legislation being referred.

Apparently, James was too busy trying to take down Donald Trump to actually do her job and did not submit the required opinion.

And on Tuesday, state Supreme Court Justice Daniel J. Doyle issued a ruling that removed the amendment from the ballot due to James’ crucial mistake.

“’Substantial’ compliance is not compliance, and this Court cannot condone actions taken by the Legislature in derogation of the expressed will of the People,” he wrote in his ruling.

This is not a good look for the Democrats since Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are trying to make the November election be about abortion-on-demand up until birth.

It’s also a major setback for Democrats in New York who were planning to use abortion to drive turnout in half-a-dozen House battleground districts that could determine control of the lower chamber next year.

“The ruling is a blow to Democrats in New York who have sought to spur voter turnout by framing key battleground House races around abortion access, betting that their base would be encouraged to cast a ballot to protect abortion rights following the overturning of Roe v. Wade,” MSN reported. 

Republicans cheered the decision and ripped the Democrats over their lust for abortion.

“Once again the legislature and Governor Hochul are found to have violated the state constitution,” state GOP Chair Ed Cox said in a statement. “In their rush to pass this amendment, the Legislature never held a single hearing on the proposal, never consulted with outside constitutional experts, and falsely asserted this amendment was necessary to protect abortion rights in the state.”

But Democrats remain hopeful that the Judge’s decision can be reversed.

Instead of holding James accountable for her inability to perform her required duties by submitting a written opinion, they are blaming the “anti-abortion minority” in New York.

“This ruling is nothing but a baseless attack by the anti-abortion minority, and we are confident it will be overturned on appeal,” spokesperson for the pro-ERA New Yorkers for Equal Rights, Andrew Taverrite, said in a statement. “Our focus will remain on educating and empowering voters so that they can vote to protect their fundamental rights and reproductive freedoms in November.”

Democrat groups were planning to spend over $20 million to turn out voters for the Amendment this fall.

James also vowed to appeal what she called “a disappointing court decision.”

But for now, the amendment will not be on the November ballot in New York.

And the Pro-Abortion Lobby is in a fit of rage over a judge actually following the law.
