Hooray For The Judicial Branch

The news is reporting that a judge blocked a law passed by the Republican-dominated Oklahoma Legislature and signed by the Republican Governor, which restricted access to the so-called morning after pill, has been blocked by a judge after being challenged by a womans advocacy group.

This is the way it is supposed to work.  When laws are passed based on fanaticism, the judicial branch is the brake.

Numerous Republican outrages across the nation that seek to control and subjugate women based on legislators religious beliefs (for the most part) have been blocked by judges on many levels.

Hooray for the framers of the Constitution for having the foresight to implement our government in this way.
