The liberal justices of the US Supreme Court have struck again in their latest attempt to overthrow American conservatism. More than that, they’re devaluing the concept of morality and life itself in this country. Certain justices, namely Justic3 John Roberts, have been swinging to the far Left lately, betraying everyone who thought he would bring balance to the court, interpret the law, and err on the conservative side. Worst of all, the 2020 Supreme Court is overstepping its boundaries by making rulings on disputes that should be settled at the state level. It’s not their job to be moral arbiters or legislate from the bench.
In a case closely watched by pro-life advocates and abortion activists alike, the Supreme Court sided with liberals in a 5-4 vote on the June Medical Services vs. Russo case. The vote overturns a Louisiana state law that would require women who get abortions to have admission privileges to nearby hospitals in the event of an emergency.
That sounds like a perfectly reasonable law to anyone who supports women’s rights, doesn’t it? Well, of course pro-choice advocates don’t support the law because it could cause the majority of abortion clinics to shut down. They call it a “medically unnecessary restriction” that could open the door for more restrictions on abortion providers.
In his concurrence to overturn the law, supposed “conservative” Justice Roberts wrote, “The legal doctrine of stare decisis requires us, absent special circumstances, to treat like cases alike. The Louisiana law imposes a burden on access to abortion just as severe as that imposed by the Texas law, for the same reasons. Therefore, Louisiana’s law cannot stand under our precedents.” Justice Breyer agreed, saying it, “offers no significant health benefit”.
Obviously, there is a benefit to this law if anything goes wrong and the woman’s life is at risk. It doesn’t surprise me that abortion providers and activists are so against the idea of saving a person’s life when their whole premise of abortion is ending a life. Of course, they don’t acknowledge the risk to life.
True conservative Justice Clarence Thomas said in his dissent, “Today a majority of the Court perpetuates its ill-founded abortion jurisprudence by enjoining a perfectly legitimate state law and doing so without jurisdiction,” he criticized. Justice Thomas continued his statement as pertaining to the morality of the ruling: “Their [abortion activists and providers] sole claim before this Court is that Louisiana’s law violates the purported substantive due process right of a woman to abort her unborn child. But they concede that this right does not belong to them, and they seek to vindicate no private rights of their own. Under a proper understanding of Article III, these plaintiffs lack standing to invoke our jurisdiction.” In the dissent, Justice Thomas argues that not only do women not have the right to end an unborn child’s life, but their case isn’t solid enough to be on the Supreme Court’s table.
Nevertheless, the four liberal justices, along with swing-vote Roberts, voted to strike the law down. Planned Parenthood celebrated this decision as a win on Twitter: “BREAKING: The Supreme Court just struck down Louisiana’s anti-abortion restriction. #MyRightMyDecision.”

While it’s already vile enough that abortion providers tout the methods they use as a woman’s “reproductive right,” it’s even more disgusting that they can’t acknowledge the fact that the medical procedure is dangerous for many of the women who receive abortions. They would even go so far as to overturn a law that protects those women.
When are women going to wake up? Planned Parenthood and the pro-choice movement don’t care about anyone but their black-market baby part business and the money they make off exploiting women.
And thanks to the latest legislative decision by the judicial branch, that exploitation will continue without restriction.
