The following comes from a December 16 LifeSiteNews article by Father Mark Hodges:

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals handed the ACLU a legal loss Tuesday, refusing to reinstate a lawsuit striking down an Arizona law that prohibited aborting a baby because of the child’s race.

The ACLU’s attempted lawsuit was against Arizona’s Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act, which requires abortionists to verify that clients are not committing sex-selection abortions or race-selection abortions.

The ACLU filed the suit on behalf of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), claiming that a ban on racist abortions is itself racist.

Arizona is the first state in the nation to ban racist abortions. There is no record of anyone having been charged under the 2011 law or of any woman being denied an abortion.

Last year, U.S. District Court Judge David Campbell ruled that abortionists have no right to challenge the law, because the law has not resulted in any individual injury. So the ACLU argued that women have been injured by not being allowed to abort their babies for being black or female.
