The Supreme Court has undone a travesty of law by overturning Roe v. Wade.
Honestly, I never thought I’d see the day, but the Supreme Court has overturned Roe v. Wade, which invented a Constitutional right to abortion across the country. To this day, many Americans don’t realize just how radical the judicial legislation was, making the United States much more extreme than most of the world, with abortion up to the point of birth and so on.
As if to provide an explanation for that lack of knowledge, the news reporters, as in this Associated Press article published by WPRI, are doing their part to support the party and facilitate division and hostility with raw propaganda. At least they’re continuing to make it easy to identify them for what they are. Americans should brace, however, for craziness and outbursts from the political Left, for whom abortion is something like a sacrament and whose party, the Democrats, is desperate for subjects to rile up their voters and distract from the catastrophe of their governance.
A reasonable assessment should begin with facts and the legal process. Overturning Roe means only that the decision must be made at the state level, and states will vary from total bans to a complete absence of restrictions, and even taxpayer subsidies for abortion. On this issue, people will once again be able to exercise the fundamental right of choosing the sort of society in which they wish to live. Allowing us to do that, while remaining one people working together, is the entire point of the American experiment. Along those lines, most states will probably fall somewhere in the compromise zone, setting some point of gestation at which unborn children may no longer be killed.
Moreover, one of the bulwarks of our Constitutional system has held firm, for now, albeit with a half-century delay. The Supreme Court should not simply be a mini legislature to enact policies that elected officials are unwilling to enact.
Unfortunately, the Left will push the opposite conclusion — that they must manipulate the political process until they control the court once again, almost certainly with an amplified madness.
So, the work falls to all of us. The Supreme Court has upheld the obvious conclusion that the Constitution does not guarantee the right to kill unborn children. Now, more than ever, we have to defend reason, the rule of law, and the reality of biology against the forces of destabilization.
