There is no true justice when one federal judge routinely strikes down every pro-life law, at the request of Planned Parenthood and abortion lobby lawyers. Heck, as far as we know, her clerks are just filling out the opinions before the cases are even heard. Such is the story of Kristine Baker, a federal judge in Arkansas, who part-time it seems also basically writes pro-Planned Parenthood court rulings against every possible pro-life law.
Kristine Baker, an Obama appointee in case that wasn’t obvious, is supposed to serve as a District Judge for the Eastern District of Arkansas, but in the past few years, it seems more like she serves the corporate interests of Planned Parenthood and NARAL, and not the rule of law and our system of checks and balances.
Baker has been a federal judge in Arkansas for about 7 years now. During that time, she has proved herself to be a worthy servant to the abortion lobby, but not so much to the rule of law.
- On July 23rd, 2019, “U.S. District Judge Kristine Baker granted a 14-day temporary restraining order shortly before midnight Tuesday. The 159-page order blocks the state from enforcing the new laws, including a measure prohibiting the procedure 18 weeks into a woman’s pregnancy. They also included a requirement that doctors performing abortions be board-certified or board-eligible in obstetrics and gynecology. An official with a Little Rock clinic that performs surgical abortions says it has one physician who meets that requirement, but he only works there a few days every other month.”
- In July 2018, Baker blocked a law that would prohibit the use of chemical abortion drugs, such as RU-486, a law that was democratically passed in 2015.
- In 2015, Baker issued a temporary restraining order, preventing the state of Arkansas from cutting Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers from receiving Medicaid payments. To her credit, she also let the defunding to later continue but then again reversed and said the state could not defund Planned Parenthood. She was overruled by the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals.
There’s being a judge, and there’s being a servant. Which one does Baker seem the most like?
