Over the years weve heard all sorts of attempts to downplay abortions as something insignificant rather than an act that destroys the life of an unborn children and injures women.
Sotomayor Senate RolesDuring yesterdays oral arguments in the Hobby Lobby case, which observers think will have the Supreme Court ultimately siding with the Christian-run business in its efforts to not have to pay for abortion-causing drugs, Justice Sonia Sotomayor was the latest to make an oft-putting comparison.
While the lawyer for the Obama administration appeared surprised that the case had anything to do with abortion, Justice Sotomayor compared abortions to vaccinations and blood transfusions.
From a news report:
Supreme Court proceedings make for notoriously difficult and unreliable predictors of how justices might rule on a case. That said, Justices Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg wasted no time in pressing the corporate challengers, according to the Wall Street Journals live blog of the oral arguments.
Justice Sotomayor started by asking, if corporations can object on religious grounds to providing contraception coverage, could they also object to vaccinations or blood transfusions? Paul Clement, the lawyer representing the challengers, said that contraception is different, because the government has already given an exemption to religious nonprofits. Justice Kagan then said that there are several medical treatments to which some religious groups object, and if corporations could object to providing coverage for those treatments, everything would be piecemeal. Nothing would be uniform.
So objecting to killing people in abortions is akin to objecting to vaccinations or blood transfusions?
This is one of the more surprising revelations since Justice Kagan ironically compared abortion clinics to slaughterhouses.

Her “compelling life story” would have been more “compelling” if her mother believed the same garbage that she does.
The USSC has been stacked by Satin himself. I would not count on them for anything good.
Evil. Pure evil.
Correct, they’ve been broken at least since they took prayer out of schools. Some good justices but plenty of bad decisions.
I thought it was the conscience that got seared ,...not the brain?
The Wise Latina: the Poster Babe for why “affirmative action” should be shyte canned.
What else would we expect from someone placed on the SCOTUS by the baby killing communist?
Would have been nice if her mother had gone to a Planned Parenthood office when she conceived that piece of crap..notice the ones who love abortion have themselves never been aborted..I wonder, if their mothers had killed them, would they have been in favor of it?
I have two children from different mothers. Both would have been aborted had it not been for my strong objections. They are both pro-abortion. Of course they say they’re pro-CHOICE.
These kind of people remind me of Richard Hickok (IN COLD BLOOD) on death row talking about being for the death penalty. UNLESS it’s his neck about to be snapped.
There can never be agreement with people like Kagan, Breyer, Ginzburg,Fluke , Obama and the “wise latina” because we simply do not share common values or definitions. If a person can accept the killing of a seven month old human life in utero without any qualm of conscience, then there is no common consensus possible.
To a leftist who has accepted that it is perfectly fine to rip an unborn baby out of the womb and murder it, I guess that to them it is nothing more that a hangnail or a vaccination.
So what. If a corporation doesn’t want to cover blood transfusions or vaccinations where does the government derive the authority to force them to do so?
This isn’t a question of religious liberty. It’s a question of liberty period. The fact that we have a Supreme Court justice even suggesting such a thing tells me our freedom is lost. I have no confidence in this court to uphold any of the freedoms guaranteed by the constitution.
Damn, she really is a sick f-ck.
“Justice Sotomayor started by asking, if corporations can object on religious grounds to providing contraception coverage, could they also object to vaccinations or blood transfusions?”
To Sotomayor, They aren’t. Quit diverting the focus.
Hideous person. Hideous countenance. Hideous heart.
Hussein is a real bastard.
Sez the wide Latina.
Goodness knows, there are plenty of reasons to criticize Sotomayor, but this question isn't one of them-- it's standard for judges during oral argument to ask hypothetical questions to probe how a ruling for this party will affect future cases.
