According to a story in Politico, citing a leaked preliminary decision, the Supreme Court is overturning one of the worst decisions it ever made, Roe v. Wade.

Some observations:

1. Justice Blackmun, who wrote Roe, admitted that there was no Constitutional justification for it, saying he got it from the "penumbras and emanations" of the Constitution. Even the late Justice Ginsburg, who supported the result, said it was wrongly decided. This presumptive decision, if it holds, is constitutionally correct.

2. This leak is a complete breach of legal ethics, possibly of the law itself, and the person who leaked it should be fired.

3. If you're going to call January 6 an insurrection, then you must call the demonstrations currently occurring at the Supreme Court an insurrection.

4. If this is the Court's decision, it will not end abortion, but will return it to the political arena and to the States.

However,

5. One could argue that the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments, with their prohibition on taking "life, liberty, or property without due process of law," prohibit abortion. That would make it a matter properly in the Federal arena and require that it be outlawed.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out.


Progressives lack compassion and tolerance. Their self-aggrandizement is all that matters.

Decent people cannot fathom the amoral cruelty of the Biden regime.

This w/help the Democrats big time this fall because it will get their voters out. They had little incentive before.

Another smart move by the left.

The GOP can help themselves here, if they play it right.They need to explain to these folks that they still have a choice, they can get pregnant or use birth control.There are so many birth control options now including the day after pill.If these folks run out and vote for the Dems, they won't be able to afford an abortion if they are legal.

They also should explain that abortion is the modern day slavery and that 100 years from now it'll be viewed the exact same way.

No, they won't be helped by it. The GOP will.

Martin, you're trying to use calm reasoning against the power of mindless emotion that moves mobs. Good luck.

TBP, the one big mass movement the right has-pro life-will be energized.But the pro abortion mob is more numerous. And don't forget-the media and the rest of the cultural establishment will have extra months to gin those people up. This is clearly an attempt to sway this fall's elections, and it mite work.

I think abortion s/b allowed in the early stages of pregnancy and Roe was an attempt to compromise-hopefully satisfying all sides.Getting rid of it is a mistake

The pro-aborts are going out to vote for the Democrats anyway. As the Democrats expose themselves on this issue, they'll energize moderately pro-life voters for the Republicans.

This is about a 50/50 issue, but the Democrats' extremism on it will help the GOP. For once, we may have reverse coattails. Sensible voters will show up to vote for hte State Legislature to stop the extremists and they'll vote up-ticket to stop the Federal government from imposing the left's extreme abortion policies on the states.

Roe was an absolute disaster. It has no constitutional basis.

Maybe not, but it was an attempt to provide guidance in a terrible situation.There are good people on both sides of this issue.While I totally oppose late-term abortion, I did agree w/Roe I think most Americans will regret its passing.
