If the Trump administration appoints 2 conservative Supreme Court judges, would that be enough to overturn Roe v Wade?
Doubtful, but maybe we’ll get the gov to stop paying for them.
Trump has aborted future Supreme Court abortionists.
Overturning Roe vs. Wade would not make abortion illegal.
Instead, the states could pass whatever laws they want.
Congress can make it illegal any time it wants by actually passing a law to that effect.
SCOTUS has always been reluctant to overturn their predecessors.
Plessy v Ferguson overturned by Brown v Board of Education
Abortion is a much greater wrong and it needs to be righted.
But, as noted by others, the Supreme Court can only give this decision back to the individual states. The Court cannot make abortion illegal.
Abortion is something a woman must deal with on a personal level. The Court should not decide either way. I do not believe it should be taxpayer funded though. All of the “pro choice” places that provide abortion services need to have those funds yanked immediately.
Sure hope so. Abortion doesn’t even make sense.
They could send it back to the states.
which would be an improvement
AND make it illegal to force all Americans to pay for it
No, we need a Supreme Court that actually APPLIES THE CONSTITUTION. That means that all federal abortion cases including Roe v. Wade get overturned and the Supreme Court sends abortion cases BACK TO THE STATES.
ABORTION IS A STATES ISSUE. THE CONSTITUTION GIVES NO AUTHORITY TO THE FEDS REGARDING ABORTION.
Remember the states generally had anti-abortion laws in place before the feds illegally and unconstitutionally tried to overturn such laws. Again the answer is not for the feds to exercise unconstitutional authority against abortion. The answer is to overturn all federal decisions where the Constitution gave the feds no authority to decide in the first place.
No. wrong. Abortion kills a person. Not up to the mother not up to the father. The person gets protection.
Murder for convenience is too entrenched, sad to say, even with most republicans. The best chances we have is to make it a states choice, not have government (us) pay for it, and hope to eliminate it from there.
Get a few more actual constitutionalists on SCOTUS and that may change - they probably wouldn't make it a Federal crime as most States determine how to handle murder cases, but taking away the "constitutional right" crap would have a huge impact.
While I doubt a total ban on abortion will be the result, a much more curtailed abortion would be. Since it is has been argued as a personal issue, it will become a personal responsibility. No longer would ax money be allowed to support the abortion industry. It can survive with only the funds received by their clients, period. I also believe that late term abortions will be banned except in extreme cases.
Since there is NO Constitutional “right to abortion,” Justice Kennedy having made up “a right to privacy” to justify the killing of inconvenient babies, I certainly pray this evil perversion of the Constitution will be repealed.
Show the snowflakes the pictures. Let them see what they are doing. It’s murder.
ax, should be tax.
