Justices Roberts and Kavanaugh Betray Pro-Lifers. As Expected

Justices Roberts and Kavanaugh Betray Pro-Lifers. As Expected

Come on. Who didn't see this coming?

After all the push and fighting pro-lifers did to make sure Robert Kavanaugh took a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court, how could we not have expected to be betrayed as soon as possible? Roberts is Roberts. I mean, that ship has sailed. He's on the organ donor waiting list for the first spine transplant.


CNN:
The Supreme Court Monday rebuffed efforts by states to block funding to Planned Parenthood.

It left in place two lower court opinions that said that states violate federal law when they terminate Medicaid contracts with Planned Parenthood affiliates who offer preventive care for low income women.
It would have taken four justices to agree to hear the issue, and only three conservative justices -- Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch -- voted to hear the case.

Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh appeared to side with the court's liberals in not taking up the case -- showing an effort to avoid high-profile abortion-related issues for now.

Roberts and Kavanaugh "likely have serious objections," said Steve Vladeck, CNN Supreme Court analyst and professor at the University of Texas School of Law. "But such votes seem to be a signal that they would rather avoid contentious, high-profile disputes for now, at least where possible."
Even CNN can't come up with some constitutionalist argument to support their pro-abort brethren. All they've got is that Roberts and Kavanaugh want to avoid "contentious, high profile disputes." Uhm, what did they think the Supreme Court did? Its actual role is to settle disputes of the contentious variety.

Justice Clarence Thomas pretty much called them wusses in his dissent. "What explains the Court's refusal to do its job here?" Thomas wrote.
"I suspect it has something to do with the fact that some respondents in these cases are named Planned Parenthood."

I wrote a book called "Faith Under Fire: Dramatic Stories of Christian Courage." Let's just say these two wouldn't qualify.

So, it turns out that Planned Parenthood has a right to taxpayer money. At least until we see how that spine transplant turns out.

KavaNaugh is not a deep conservative. He never was. He is probably not Souter, but he is no Scalia.

It would be interesting to read Judge Kavanaugh’s reasoning would it not?

Those two are tight, which makes me very queasy. Roberts is the swing vote now-a-days until RBG steps or falls aside. I don’t trust him. Kavanaugh got a taste of liberalism recently, so I don’t see him getting woke anytime soon.

Regardless of whether he becomes a squish or not, it was wrong what they did to him. Looks like he is trying hard to get back his so-called friends in D.C.

The question is why doesn’t Roberts take up all of these unconstitutional edicts by the lower courts or vacate them.../rhet /our courts are irreparably corrupt

I don't believe Planned Parenthood was even a party in any of these cases, so I'm not sure how important the decisions would have been anyway.

I believe the point of contention here involved the legal standing of a plaintiff to file a lawsuit over these Medicaid funding cuts.

What made it seem almost obvious that the Supreme Court would take up the case is that a different Federal court in a case involving another state (Arkansas) came to the exact opposite conclusion -- meaning the Supreme Court has apparently left standing two opposing decisions in different cases.

“Who didn’t see this coming?”

You don’t understand. It’s nD Chess [where n is a large integer].

Traitor Roberts and his new butt bud Kav are following 17th Letter’s Plan, don’t you see....

Somebody was using the chess excuse on another thread. I roll my eyes when I see that stuff.

You are asking waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much of some people.

These guys are deep into their conspiracy narratives of “betrayal”.

On the next ruling, where he makes one that they like, they will vanish.

Thanks, DB. I tried to say this Kavenaugh is not what you think. Freepers so get fooled by someone being a Christian.

Kavanaugh was a throw away vote

He knew Roberts would betray Pro-Lifers so his vote wouldn't matter & to make Liberals think he isn't partisan he voted with Roberts

If Trump & Reagan with the help of Joe Diginiva (sp) were to elect all 9 Supremes I am wiiling to bet that 4 at least within 2 yrs would become leftist. Conststutionalist be damned. Anywhere around D.C. will take you down with Satan.

I don’t care s long as it wasn’t about immigration, because at least Hillary didn’t get to nominate a justice.
