Re: Roe down, Griswold, Lawrence and Obergefell next on chopping block

Same can be said for “Plessy v Ferguson” Roe was a fabrication. “Made up out of Whole Cloth”. If the court had simply declared the law unconstitutional on equal protection grounds it might have stuck. But once they fabricated the right to privacy and legislated the trimester it had a target. It’s w...

Re: Roe down, Griswold, Lawrence and Obergefell next on chopping block

Rather ignorant to avoid the clause that invites the recognition of individual rights because you don’t like the guy who proposes it. Me, I’ll pursue that line as an effective opportunity. It would be a logical and effective reading of the 14th amendment. I could see Justice Roberts and Justice Gor...

Re: Roe down, Griswold, Lawrence and Obergefell next on chopping block

Why does everyone ignore this part of the opinion “ For example, we could consider whether any of the rights announced in this Court’s substantive due process cases are “privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States” protected by the Fourteenth Amendment.”. I’ve read a half a dozen piec...

Re: Supreme Court breaks down wall between church and state

They are uninterested in building a culture that is pro-mom, pro-baby and pro-life. So, in order to build said culture here are a few suggestions: Remove any ban or attempted ban against gays adopting. Cease any and all attempts at banning contraception and gay marriage. The assets of all anti-choi...

greengrass is hilarious. He's pretending the Court isn't going after these other decisions. But Thomas wrote : In his separate opinion, Thomas acknowledged that Friday’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization does not directly affect any rights besides abortion. But he argued that ...

First is the question of how this decision will affect other precedents involving issues such as contraception and mar- riage—in particular, the decisions ...

Re: Roe down, Griswold, Lawrence and Obergefell next on chopping block

First thing that needs to occur is to bring forth legislation to codify abortion rights. Use it to hi lite opposition to target in the upcoming midterms. A couple of observations. No one signed on to the Thomas opinion. So he’s not likely to get any support on his opinion from the other five. Rober...

Re: Roe down, Griswold, Lawrence and Obergefell next on chopping block

Good point. Soon as the cord is cut, you're on your own, kid. This is worth pointing out, as it shows the hypocrisy of much of the "pro life" coalition. The naked truth is that THE RIGHT DOESN'T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT LIFE. This is about nothing more than sexual control of women. Why do you th...

Re: Roe down, Griswold, Lawrence and Obergefell next on chopping block

By that logic, racism is also murder. Every fertilized egg deserves the same regard as a moral and sentient being just as "good" as any other one. Use their own logic as a weapon against them. They ARE the ones that refer to abortion as "black genocide". But they only care about...

Re: Roe down, Griswold, Lawrence and Obergefell next on chopping block

Not a word from righty, notice? Look, here's the deal: They say life begins at conception. Any ENDING of that life, they reason, is MURDER. So, the mother, and anyone that has ANYTHING to do with that abortion is either a murderer or an accessory to murder. The woman? Murderer. The Doctor? Murderer...

Re: Roe down, Griswold, Lawrence and Obergefell next on chopping block

It is basic math that even they understand. Vote for ANY republican IS a vote to overturn Roe, end Gay marriage and on and on. Yeah, they don't care. But they'll swear up and down that they don't want want Roe overturned. They just don't like Democrats, so whatever the right does, no matter how un-...

Libertas, let's be clear: I'm sure that our board cons, Glenn, Joe and greengrass are going to say that they aren't for overturning Roe. But that doesn't change their vote in 2022 or beyond. No matter WHAT the GOP does, there's NOTHING that will keep them from voting for them. They'll all made that ...

Yes you're right - this is what distinguishes our times from the past.

Yes as of today, the game is definitely longer than the lives of anyone on this board. This is now a permanent condition for us.
