Supreme Court overturns Roe in anticipated Dobbs decision

Supreme Court overturns Roe in anticipated Dobbs decision

WASHINGTON (CNS) — In a 6-3 decision June 24, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned its nearly 50-year-old decision in Roe v. Wade that legalized abortion in this country.

The court’s 213-page ruling in Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health Organization was not totally unexpected due to the leak of an opinion draft a month earlier. The ruling emphasizes that there is no constitutional right to abortion in the United States.

The Dobbs case focused on an abortion clinic in Mississippi opposed to the state’s law banning abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy.

The court’s reversal of its longstanding abortion ruling brings abortion policy decisions to the state level.

Conservative Leader Blasts Joe Biden for Allowing Protests at Supreme Court Justices’ Homes

Conservative Leader Blasts Joe Biden for Allowing Protests at Supreme Court Justices’ Homes

The president of a public-interest law firm claimed Monday morning that the Biden administration encouraged “illegal” protests against Supreme Court justices.

“You’ve had the Biden White House encourage and condone illegal activity outside of’ the homes of justices,” Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, said on “Fox and Friends First.” “It makes the justices unsafe, obviously. They’ve got children.”

“You have the left talking about riots if unborn human beings might have more right to life protections,” Fitton said. “In the attack on pregnancy centers, let’s be clear what the centers do, they help women who are pregnant.”

Abortion activists plan to shut down the Supreme Court over ‘Roe’ decision

Abortion activists plan to shut down the Supreme Court over ‘Roe’ decision

Within the next month, the U.S. Supreme Court is expected to issue its ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which not only will determine if Mississippi’s 15-week abortion restriction can stand, but whether Roe v. Wade will be kept in place. A leaked draft opinion showed that Roe was going to be overturned, and this quickly resulted in near-riotous behavior from abortion activists. The latest example is a group planning on blockading the Supreme Court in June.

A group called #ShutDownDC has organized a #ShutDownSCOTUS event to take place on June 13, one of the days the Supreme Court is expected to release decisions this month.

Biologist Confirms Unborn Babies are Human Beings, Have Heartbeat 22 Days After Conception

Biologist Confirms Unborn Babies are Human Beings, Have Heartbeat 22 Days After Conception

The amazing, complex development of an unborn baby at the earliest stages of pregnancy often gets buried in the abortion debate.

But it is amazing, and scientists know so much more about unborn babies than they did in 1973 when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Roe v. Wade.

A recent CBN News article highlighted some of these findings as the high court appears likely to overturn Roe this summer and allow states to protect unborn babies again.

“Some in the pro-choice crowd say a person’s life doesn’t actually begin until he or she is outside the womb, but the science shows an unborn baby at 15 weeks gestation is a living, breathing human being with unique DNA who can already feel pain,” author Andrea Morris wrote.

Blame the Biden Administration’s Incompetence for the Baby Formula Crisis

Blame the Biden Administration’s Incompetence for the Baby Formula Crisis

The great baby formula airlift of 2022 will soon be underway. After 40 percent of popular brands were out of stock by late April, Swiss manufacturer Nestle, which owns Gerber, announced it will fly extra baby formula to the United States. FDA rules effectively prevented the importation of foreign-made products, and were only suspended on Monday.

Cargo planes are fast, not cheap, and American parents will likely pay a premium. But the market is finally solving the shortage once the government freed it to do so. Dave Brat, Dean of Liberty University’s Business School, asserted, “the free market in itself can solve this in a week.”

MSNBC Host Tiffany Cross: Pro-Life Americans are “Terrorists” Who Should “Shut the F— Up”

The leaking of Justice Samuel Alito’s abortion decision caused leftist journalists and celebrities to erupt in hate-filled attacks on Supreme Court justices and GOP politicians over the last three weeks.

MSNBCer Elie Mystal raged that “Alito’s fundamental legal reasoning” was worthless since it was based on the rationale of the Founding Fathers or as he called them: “racist misogynist jerk faces.” His colleague, MSNBC host Tiffany Cross was offended that the “dimwitted” Alito actually stuck up for the lives of unborn black babies in his decision as she lumped him in with other Pro-Life “terrorists” whose achievements came “through violence.” 

On CNN, host Jake Tapper pressed GOP Governor Tate Reeves on how many “women and girls” might “die” from Mississippi’s laws?

Leaked draft of Supreme Court opinion calls for overturning Roe

POLITICO has obtained a leaked Supreme Court draft majority opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization that strikes down Roe v. Wade. The opinion was written by Justice Samuel Alito and was circulated inside the Supreme Court in February.

Roe was egregiously wrong from the start,” wrote Alito in the draft opinion. “We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled. It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.”

According to POLITICO, four of the other justices — Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett — joined the draft opinion with Alito while Justices Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan are writing dissents.

Leading pro-life advocates and pro-life Republican senators condemned the leak of a draft of a decision to end Roe v. Wade as an attempt by leftists to intimate the Supreme Court into keeping the radical pro-abortion decision in place.

“Roe was egregiously wrong from the start,” Justice Samuel Alito wrote in the draft opinion of the court dated February 10, according to Politico.

Idaho Lawmakers Fighting Hard to Defend Texas-Style Abortion Ban in Court

Idaho Lawmakers Fighting Hard to Defend Texas-Style Abortion Ban in Court

On Monday, without comment, the Idaho Supreme Court allowed state lawmakers to intervene in a lawsuit “challenging the constitutionality of a law they passed earlier this year that would ban abortions after about six weeks of pregnancy,” the Associated Press’s Keith Ridler reported.

The law is set to go into effect on April 22.

The request to take part in defending the Fetal Heartbeat Preborn Child Protection Act [Senate Bill 1309] came from Republican House Speaker Scott Bedke, Republican Senate President Pro-Tem Chuck Winder, and the Legislature. Last week, also without comment, the Court said the Catholic Church could not file a friend of the court brief.

Court Strikes Down University’s Anti-Free Speech Policy Banning Student From Saying “Abortion is Immoral”

Court Strikes Down University’s Anti-Free Speech Policy Banning Student From Saying “Abortion is Immoral”

In a victory for pro-life free speech, a federal appeals court struck down the University of Central Florida’s speech code that university officials used to limit free speech on campus.

The group Speech First launched the lawsuit against the University of Central Florida (UCF) after challenging three of its policies that suppress and punish student speech on campus. According to the group, UCF engaged in a discriminatory harassment policy, a discriminatory computer use policy and had a Just Knights Response Team that suppressed conservative speech.

“Through the use of these policies, the UCF and its administrators created a series of rules and regulations that restrain, deter, suppress, and punish speech about the political and social issues of the day,” the group said.

Ketanji Brown Jackson’s Child Porn Sentences Were 35% Lighter Than the National Average

Ketanji Brown Jackson’s Child Porn Sentences Were 35% Lighter Than the National Average

Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s sentencing pattern in child pornography cases was one of the big issues raised in last week’s multiday confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Clarity on this issue is needed before the committee, and then the full Senate, make their decision regarding Jackson’s nomination to the Supreme Court.

Federal law distinguishes among three types of child pornography cases: production, possession, and distribution. During the hearing, Democrats repeatedly offered two different standards for evaluating Jackson’s sentences for these crimes as a judge on the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

First, Democrats said we should compare Jackson’s sentences to those of U.S.

Conservative Attorneys Defend Justice Clarence Thomas, He Doesn’t Have to Recuse Himself From Anything

Conservative Attorneys Defend Justice Clarence Thomas, He Doesn’t Have to Recuse Himself From Anything

Conservative attorneys slammed Democratic lawmakers’ attempts to pressure Justice Clarence Thomas into recusing himself from certain cases over his wife’s political activism.

“The Left’s partisan crusade to force Justice Thomas off of cases is not based on real recusal standards but on politics,” Carrie Severino, president of Judicial Crisis Network, said in a statement to the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Democrats in Congress sent a letter to the Supreme Court urging Thomas to recuse himself from cases involving Jan. 6 and efforts to overturn the 2020 election after The Washington Post published texts from Thomas’ wife, Virginia “Ginni” Thomas. She reportedly accused Democrats of attempting a “heist” and said “Do not concede” in messages to former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows in the days after the 2020 election.
