Supreme Court, Bolstered by Trump’s Picks, Overrules Roberts on Texas Abortion Law

The Supreme Court in a 5-4 decision allowed the Texas abortion law, which bans abortions after 6 weeks, to stand. Chief Justice John Roberts dissented, but the 5 other conservative justices thought differently.

The court denied an emergency appeal by abortion providers that looked to block enforcement of the law that took effect on Wednesday.

The order was unsigned, and liberal are losing their minds thinking this is a change in precedent from the Supreme Court.

However, that is a lie. The court stated that this was not a decision on the constitutionality of the law, but just a decision based on the current appeal.

“In reaching this conclusion, we stress that we do not purport to resolve definitively any jurisdictional or substantive claim in the applicants’ lawsuit. In particular, this order is not based on any conclusion about the constitutionality of Texas’s law, and in no way limits other procedurally proper challenges to the Texas law, including in Texas state courts,” the unsigned order said.

The court’s ruling basically states that no one was able to show harm or potential for imminent harm from the law, but that doesn’t mean that a plaintiff that fits the mold couldn’t present later. This was a standing issue.

One of those sky screamers was Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a Democrat Representative from New York.

She claimed it was a complete dismantling of Roe v. Wade. That would have been a constitutional question and the court made clear that this was not the case.

Roberts dissented. noting,  “the Court’s order is emphatic in making clear that it cannot be understood as sustaining the constitutionality of the law at issue.”

Justice Elana Kagan noted that the decision was “stunning,” and “presented with an application to enjoin a flagrantly unconstitutional law engineered to prohibit women from exercising their constitutional rights and evade judicial scrutiny, a majority of Justices have opted to bury their heads in the sand.”

Fox News Reported on AOC’s fearmongering:

The issue before the court was not whether the Texas law is constitutional but whether it should temporarily block the law’s enforcement while the case is litigated. Nevertheless, the congresswoman from New York indicated that the court scrapped established court precedent on the constitutionality of abortion and that court- packing is the only remedy.

“Republicans promised to overturn Roe v Wade, and they have,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Wednesday night. “Democrats can either abolish the filibuster and expand the court, or do nothing as millions of peoples’ bodies, rights, and lives are sacrificed for far-right minority rule. This shouldn’t be a difficult decision.”

But as law professor Andy Grewal notes:

The court could be welcoming a challenge and may be more amenable to overturning Roe should this case return on the merits.

Only time will tell.

The Left does not cherish life and liberty, or even happiness. They have become non-essential in the world of politics because they are against new life with a right to live, and principles that made men free and equal.

61 MILLION BABIES HAVE BEEN KILLED SINCE ROSEY WAID AND IN 4 YEARS 2 MILLION EIGHT HUNDRED THOUSAND BABIES WERE KILLED. THIS IS WORSE THAN WHAT HITLER DID DURING WORLD WAR 2 AND THIS IS AMERICA. WE ARE ABOUT TO LOSE OUR COUNTRY, WAKE UP AMERICA.

FOLKS, MURDER IS MURDER AND KILLING A HEART BEATING BABY IS MURDER AND ALL WHO VOTED TO DO THIS SHOULD BE ARRESTED FOR AIDING AND ABIDING MURDER AND CHARGED WITH MURDER AS WELL ALL ANYONE DOING THE ABORTING. IF I KILLED YOU, IT WOULD BE MURDER AND I WOULD BE PROSCUTED AND KILLING BABIES IS NOT DIFFERENT. NO MANY HOW MANY EINSTEINS HAVE BEEN KILLED IN THE 61 MILLION BABIES SINCE ROSEY WAID WAS PASSED.

Mark Levin (The Liberty Amendments) makes a great point how the Supreme Court Justices must no longer be appointed for life, bur rotated like the elected officials. His list of Constitutional principles that must be amended are aimed at defending and restoring the Republic and saving it form mob rule.

Finally the justices who were chosen for their original interpretation managed to wrest control from the spineless Roberts. Does this mean that we really do have a SCOTUS after all?

If a “Constitutional Right” can be awarded by the court such as abortion in Roe-v-Wade can’t the court than take it away? If it was amended by the people as per the Constitution than it couldn’t be.

Why is it that everyone thinks that Roe vs. Wade is a law? It is not a law since it has never been passed by Congress. It is only a court ruling.

What did Little Girl Bartender AOC say…“Democrats can either abolish the filibuster and expand the court, or do nothing as millions of peoples’ bodies, rights, and lives are sacrificed for far-right minority rule. This shouldn’t be a difficult decision.”
So allowing abortions at any stage is not harming anyone’s body, not the child’s rights, and their lives are definitely sacrificed! She is as about as stupid as the day is long.

Can someone please enlighten me? I don’t remember when 2/3 of the states passed the amendment making abortion a constitutional right. Until that is done, abortion is not a constitutional eight. End of story.

Democrats claim lives are sacred so they import thousands of Muslims and Mexicans every day to give them a better chance at life. Then they turn around and slaughter ONE MILLION unborn human beings every year. Not to mention the lives lost in their wars and those they’d be happy to snuff out with our own military right here. Remember too, Black Lives Matter but white lives like Ashlii’s, not so much.

The utter HYPOCRISY of Democrat Liberalism is simply breath taking! That they get as many votes and as much support as they do is a clear indication of just how far down this nation has sunk.

The fetus has a heartbeat. So Democrats kill it and sell it for parts. Oh, yes, they’re so-o-o concerned about life!

My heart is crushed at the comments on this site lamenting that those we have political differences with were not aborted. The ONLY reason that abortion is evil is that every human is created in the image of God. Whether that human life chooses to follow God and oppose evils such as abortion of that human life chooses to reject God and root for evil (Romans 1), those who claim to follow God and represent His will should NEVER desire evil to be perpetrated upon our political opponents.

Mike W, be careful what you post. Your hatred does not give any person who does not share your hatred cause to rethink their position with respect to this evil practice. Unfortunately, it most likely entrenches them in their position.

Committing murder of a unborn child is enough to make me realize that these people misrepresenting what we should be doing – I think we as a people should use every measure to assist a women that is facing this – even providing a sponsor to fund the entire adoption/ and financially supporting a women who would want to take another route if possible – I think the radicals want just to poke god – well the times coming where hes going poke back

The majority of 5 made the right decision for two reasons: the one given by Grewal (nobody so far has shown any harm that the law has done) and the one that it is not the job of the Supreme Court to be the first to block a law: that job falls to the lower courts, with the SCOTUS only involving itself when a federal circuit court decision is appealed to them.

Roberts and the three liberals who voted with him can bellyache about the Texas law all they want, but they are ignoring the most elementary procedural principles. The same of course goes for AOC and the rest of that crowd.
