Did They All Lie?


Did you suppose this may end up every other method?

“As a normal proposition I perceive the significance of the precedent set forth in Roe v. Wade.” – Brett Kavanaugh at his Senate affirmation listening to.

Did you actually suppose there was one other David Souter among the many Three “Trump-appointed” Stooges?

“The Supreme Court docket of the US has held in Roe v. Wade {that a} fetus isn’t an individual for functions of the Fourteenth Modification. That’s the regulation of the land. I settle for the regulation of the land, senator, sure.” – Neil Gorsuch at his Senate affirmation listening to.

Did you really imagine the “average” John Roberts would be capable to persuade no less than one Trump jurist to honor the Structure she or he swore to uphold?

 “I can’t pre-commit or say, sure, I’m getting into with some agenda, as a result of I’m not, I don’t have any agenda. I’ve an agenda to stay to the rule of regulation and determine circumstances as they arrive.” – Amy Coney Barrett at her Senate affirmation listening to.

Immediately’s ultra-right-wing Court docket was by no means going to situation an injunction towards the unconventional anti-abortion regulation handed in Texas similar to the three Trump nominees the place by no means going to disclose their true emotions about Roe v. Wade and defending a lady’s proper to decide on.

I prefer to imagine that Sen. Susan Collins was duped by Kavanaugh’s reassurance that he didn’t pose a menace to Roe v. Wade’s protections for ladies and households. However that may be giving Collins an excessive amount of credit score. She needed to know what Kavanaugh was all about … and he, together with the opposite two Trump-appointed ideologues, Gorsuch and Coney Barrett, didn’t disappoint the anti-abortion forces.

My solely hope is now that this so-called “supreme court docket” has proven its hand (no less than on the abortion situation), the backlash will likely be fierce and unrelenting.

A majority of People help a ladies’s proper to decide on. Let’s pray that the Republicans up for reelection within the 2022 midterms, those that help the Court docket’s current motion, all undergo defeat. Let’s hope the Democrats maintain their majority within the Home and enhance their majority within the Senate … and that “Supreme Court docket reform” (i.e., growing the variety of justices to blunt the Court docket’s excessive conservative tilt) is on the prime of any new legislative agenda.
