I find this SOOO upsetting. You won't be able to read the article without a New York Times log in, but I think its worth it. Here's a quote:

"On July 29, Judge Thomas F. Burke Jr. of the Court of Common Pleas in Wilkes-Barre entered a temporary order forbidding Ms. Meyers to have an abortion. Another judge of that court, Michael T. Conahan, held a hearing two days later. He kept the order in place until he issued yesterday's decision."

Frankly, I'm in a cold fury. This article upsets me in ways I can't explain. Basically, a woman got pregnant, and told her ex (who impregnated her) that she was having an abortion. He tried to get her to stop, by contacting his lawyer, who got a judge to issue a court order to stop her from having an abortion so that they could go to court to decide whether she could have an abortion or not.

WHAT THE HELL!!! There is so much wrong with this. I need to expound on this later.
