For readers following the very weird twists and turns of the current fate of P.L. 20-134, aka "Belle's Law," there are two updates:

Moylan asks court to dismiss Adelup abortion ban petition - Link

Former GPA legal counsel represents OAG in Supreme Court abortion case - Link 

There is also a national story which will impact another current case relative to abortion in Guam:

As future of abortion pill is weighed, Democrats in Congress see little they can do - Link

The first story references who filed amicus curiae briefs:

The court has now received several amicus curiae briefs - assistive briefs from interested parties - including from the Guam Legislature; lawyers representing Dr. William Freeman, who was the last abortion provider on Guam, and other interested parties; former senator and current talk show host Robert Klitzkie; and blogger Timothy Rohr. 

I don't have copies of anyone else's brief, but for reference, here's mine.


  1. It seems to me that if the Supreme Court of Guam answers "no" to this question posed by the Governor:

    "Whether the Legislature had the authority to pass the law."

    Then Guam's law(s) legalizing cannabis production and distribution could be challenged. Especially if the Court relies upon 48 YSC 1423a:

    "The legislative power of Guam shall extend to all rightful subjects of legislation not inconsistent with the provisions of this chapter and the laws of the United States applicable to Guam."


    1. A a certain island attorney is both a pro-abortion activist AND a pro-cannibis activist. She's clueless.

    2. Not surprised. And probably more than one. In fact, a lot more.

  2. Excellent observation.
