Choice -- But Only for Judges

The New York Times reports that judges are starting to "opt out" of ruling on petitions from young women required (by law!) to ask a judge for an abortion.

Let's see...if pharmacists only have to fill certain prescriptions and judges don't have to uphold ALL of the laws, I guess that means as a teacher, I could have only taught the kids I wanted to teach, right?

It's bad enough that these young women have to place themselves at the mercy of a judge in the first place, now they are at the mercy of their petty political priorities.
