Court discovers abortion funding in U.S. Constitution

An attorney reacting to a federal appeals court ruling on abortion funding says the court has abandoned the U.S. Constitution. 

In Colorado, the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled in favor of abortion funding after Utah Gov. Gary Herbert cut off state funds going to Planned Parenthood.

Not only did the court rule against Herbert, in favor of the abortion giant, but it suggested that denying taxpayers' funds violates the Constitution.

The appeals court decided "there's a good chance the governor's order violated the group's constitutional rights," The Associated Press, citing the court order, reported Wednesday.

American Family Association public policy analyst Abe Hamilton says the legal system has entered a "post-constitutional era, where the judiciary has practically abandoned all pretense of any types of tethering to the Constitution."

No corporation or non-profit has a constitutional right to tax dollars, Hamilton points out.
