Leftists want to tear down the Supreme Court, be clear about that It is one of the few high-credibility institutions left in the country. Using abortion as a pivot, a draft Supreme Court opinion was released. That has never happened before – ever. It is an intolerable violation of trust, ethics, and law.
While the draft opinion in question would reverse Roe v. Wade, allowing states to decide on abortion rights, and permitting their legislatures to ban the killing a sentient child in the womb, this is a bigger issue than abortion.
Yes, judicial conservatives – and other legal scholars who admit skepticism in private – have long known the Roe decision is a legal outlier, a juridical aberration, a decision that asserts grounding in the 9th and 14th amendments, but in reality, is without foundation. It was a work of creative minds for politics.
That has been discussed, admitted, punctuated with regret by great legal minds since the decision, not unlike the “separate but equal” decision of a different era, also reversed. While precedent is important for predictability, being right, using sound reasoning, upholding constitutional integrity matters more.
All of this will create fodder around the likely-to-hold reversal of Roe, which will simply return this decision to the place in which most decisions tied to life and death, rights and wrongs belong – state legislatures, which are closest to the people of each state and thus reflect that state’s disposition.
The bigger issue is that the overwhelming body of Democrats in this country, virtually all Democrat Senators, Congressmen, state legislators, the current US cabinet, vice president, president – and former Democrat officeholders – did not condemn the leak, a breach of integrity that undercuts the High Court.
To be clear, decisions come and go. This is an important one, and it will change America in a way that returns us to a more moral, thoughtful, contemplative, and good nation, putting the onus for deciding life and death for a child in the hands of legislatures, until such time as the child is otherwise recognized.
But what has happened is more important than this leaked decision, as important as the decision is. What has happened is that the poetical left, which has taken over the Democrat party, has begun eroding, one might even say bulldozing, the integrity, trust, respect, and high regard for the Court.
They have done this because, at this moment, America is on a swing back toward a non-activist judiciary one that respects the limited role of justices and judges – applying law to facts – in preserving limited government and the integrity of the Constitution. Words matter, and documents do not breathe.
Put differently, the political left is seeking to cut down, undermine the legitimacy of, and make political one of the few institutions left in this country that is not infected by leftist politics, or politics at large. Like the US military, the judiciary is not supposed to be political, but independent of politics.
At the fringes, all mankind and all institutions have an element of politics to them, but an independent judiciary – above the ebb, flow, grime, and tawdry nature of politics – is one of our few guarantors. An independent, respected, trusted, thoughtful, high-integrity federal bench – is vital to preserve liberty.
What has just happened is the first body blow to our independent judiciary, a way of diminishing the decisions, sanctity and solemnity of their reasoning, and the institution itself. This is a warning shot, and one that should cause all to shudder.
Next come threats to justices, judges, attempts to pack the court with political actors, to bend the rule of law to rule by politics, and destroy the most sober of our federal institutions.
Worse than any aspect of the discussion over ending abortion, is the fact that major leaders of the Democrat Party are not willing to condemn this savaging of the High Court’s place in our society, and its innate, necessary, stability-assuring dignity – by some political leftist.
If there is an echo in the air, it is the echo of silence by those who should be speaking, and the reality – what this means. The Democrat Party has become the party of leftism, ends justifying means, and if that means tearing down the US Supreme Court, as they have other institutions, so be it. This is an ominous turn, one that every American – including thoughtful Democrats – should pause and ponder.

I think Webster’s definition of democrat is: hypocrisy.
I totally agree. Roe v Wade will not end abortion but put the decision back to the states where it belongs. What is being done to SCOTUS is by far worse. We cannot let this happen.
Schuky Schumer and Nancy Pelosi are responsible for this!
This particular subject is the only point that I strongly disagree with the republican party.My personal belief that a woman has a right to choose whether to have an abortion or not. I don’t believe the government has any place in this decision. This choice is between a woman and her maker. No one has a right to tell her yeah or nay. Show me a law that restricts a man on any choice regarding his body. Why then does this party think they have a right to dictate to us their opinions of what is right or wrong for us?We answer to the same God as you do. He and he alone will judge us. JUDGE NOT LEST YOU BE JUDGED.
It is still killing murder. It stops a heart beat, never that be condoned.
No judgment. But how could any mother ‘choose’ to kill/murder her own child? The aspect is choice of birth control resources and choices. The judgment will be God’s to make. He has zero tolerance for murder/destruction of life unless it is His choice.
You said show you a place were a man is restricted. First, you just created one in your restriction on our voice concerning abortion regardless of circumstances. Second, nearly all laws regarding sexual assault or harassment assume male violations (though women are also perpetrators). Third, the military has recently demonstrated that men do not have a say over what is put in their body, regardless of side effects or consequences. Fourth, a women’s right to chose assumes that all citizens (including men) are in agreement with the decision and the financial consequences/obligations. It sounds like you simply want to enforce your morality on everyone else. I suggest you speak women who have had an abortion. Not surprisingly many advocate now for restrictions or abolition of the practice.
God has already spoken on this subject. “Life is sacred you cannot take another’s life without condemning your own”.
You’re missing the point entirely. Yes it is between the Lord and a woman who makes the totally selfish ‘choice’ not just concerning her own body, but making the choice for a pro-created life of a child to kill it. It is unconscionable! The point you neglect to understand is that abortion worshippers are using our tax dollars to fund these murders. If they want the rest of us to butt out of their right to choose, then they need to keep their filthy hands off our wallets!!
Gee, what if your “maker” is the Devil? I assume you’ll say “The Devil made me do it!” I guess you forgot about “Covid”, the Government DID NOT give you ANY freedom, “my body my choice”. Kinda strange, in your logic, that you would think you have “Autonomy”. How many people lost their “Autonomy” and their JOBS and “Livelihood”, by refusing Covid inoculation on Religious Grounds from (your maker).
The states have jurisdiction over what is legal or not in each state. The feds do not. I do not judge you but I do disagree with you. If you murder someone it is not just between you and god. You must also face consequences in this life and deal with the law. If your state does not allow abortion go to one that does. This will not stop abortion but will hopefully make it less political. Do not force your beliefs on me either. My choice will always be life.
This a good and truthful piece.
Although those who seek a higher moral stand should not spit out a vitriol akin to those who only have chaos as their theme.
Let’s ruin the Dems before they do more damage. These babies didn’t ask to be born and yet they want to murder them. There is no question that this has to stop.
This is going totally Against the United States CONSTITUTION! If The Reprobate Minded Left Are Allowed To Do This There’s Nothing That “WE THE PEOPLE” Have To Go To For A True Legal Final Decision. We Certainly No Longer Can Depend On Judges In Our County Courts. No Longer Can We Believe In The FBI Not Other National Security Agencies!Once The Progressive Socialistic Left Sees What It Can Get Away With Without Recoil From “We The People”, The Legal Citizens Of The United States It’s Only A Period Of Time That They Destroy Our Freedom Completely!Father God Is Not Happy With The Political Decision Of Roe vs Wade!Evil People Are Trying To Destroy Our Freedom And Independence On Them And Any Other Countries. Are You Woke Or Are You Awakening Citizens Of The United States???
Ao it’s okay for them to storm the Supreme Court building, one of the most government buildings in the USA ?At least Jan 6 the protesters were let in. So I take it that these protesters will be deemed Terrorists and held in prison? They better be.
This is a moral issue. The individual that leak the information should be arrested. Amen, you’re correct … The supreme court should’ve called it out right murder. Yes, the Democratic Party has become a Marxist party, socialist and fascist. God help us!
These types of behavior will continue until the left conquers all government institutions and schools, or freedom loving parents decide they love their children enough to do what is necessary to assure they bring up good people, and not let the government usurp that roll. Bringing up good people starts at home. These good people then carry this behavior into schools and the workforce.
Simply put. These people need to be killed, because that’s what they intend for you/ us!
THIS IS A FEDERAL CRIME..
It is! This leaker should have his/her law license revoked forever. However, with the Nazis in charge of DC, the chances of that happening are slim
You’ve got it right Sid.
The marxist democrats silence tells you every you need to know.
The democrats are behind the leak,the violence ,the democrats are dirty,anti American, self serving,greedy traitors!
WAKE UP AMERICA – THROW THEM OUT
Dems like what is happening. When democrats don’t get their way, they are like spoiled children and yell, cry, and pout until it’s to their liking. Rude, selfish people!
Worse than spoiled children because they hate Real Citizens who oppose their marxist indoctrination and destruction of Our Country!
These LOSERS work for Us!
Throw them out!
As I have said before…the Supreme Court never had authorization to rule on Roe v Wade in the first place as this should have been sent back to the individual states as the Constitution requires. This goes for the same sex marriage and civil rights of the abominations.
You are Correct!
Yes Right on Wand
The Supreme Court doesn’t want to get rid of abortion. What it is trying to do is give that responsibility back to the states where it belonged in the first place. State sovereignty.
In my 90 years on this earth I have come to observe a few things that always prove to be true. One of the things I believe to be true is that there is a difference in the brains of Liberals and Conservatives. The reason I believe that is because politically all Liberals think and act alike and all Conservatives think and act alike. Every Democrat I know will not discuss politics unless it is what they want to hear, they think the federal government should be in charge of everything, that our children belong to the government and the schools and supports what the socialist/communist Biden Administration does. Every Conservative I know thinks just the opposite of those things. I wish a brain study of Liberals versus Conservatives would be done. Ever since the 2020 election was fraudulently stolen the Democrats have denied it, and since the proof has finally been proven and revealed they still deny it. The Biden Administration and Democrat House have turned the country into a Marxist run Communist state, essentially eliminating our rights and the Constitution. But their biggest error is not thinking ahead of the consequences they will face when Conservatives are back in control!
Hmmmmm…..liberals have brains???? Amazing
Abortion is Just like Drug addiction “what a terrible thing to waste!” Children deserve the Right to Life, Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness, as an American. Give YOUR child a chance to AT LEAST be ADOPTED! There are loving people that would raise the baby, in a loving home.
No government should have the right to stop a woman from exercising her inherent right to govern her Own body; including aborting an unwanted fetus under16 weeks of gestation. If they do; there will just be a glut of unsafe abortions like there used to be in the bad old days.
Does one’s inherent “right” to govern one’s own body include self mutilation and suicide? Should the government have the right to stop a person from exercising one’s inherent right to govern one’s own body by committing suicide? Should the government step in and stop self mutilation? (ex. suppose you hack off an arm or leg)
Pat you are a total moron.. If it was your body you would kill it ? it is not your body you are Murdering… Grow up, get help, you sick pathetic murdering fool.. If you want to Murder babies go ahead, no one is stopping you, or by chance have you heard of the latest in birth control methods.. Condoms are one of Many ways.. for you I would suggest sterilization.. its a brand new concept !!!!
at the present time,I have all the body parts that I was born with. Yet, I had a baby. How can that be if the baby is part of my body? I delivered a baby, I did not have an amputation of one of my body parts. I has the same amount of body parts before I got pregnant as after I delivered the baby. My son was never a part of my boding. He is a living breathing entity unto himself. He just rented a space, that was especially prepared for him by God, in my body until he could survive out side my body. Your argument is bunk and we all know it. Give it a rest., Oh Remember ADOPTION?. Seems to me that someone wants these unwanted babies.
And here is a thought, Pat, maybe you should consider practicing safe sex if you don’t want to get pregnant.
I thought suicide was against the law?
Maybe Women should be able to NOT GET PREGNANT all on their own. There are many forms of birth control. If you are to dumb to not use birth control that is the problem. OR learn how to keep your legs crossed, that will solve it too !!
Get a grip, take responsibility BEFORE the option is KILLING INNOCENT BABIES!
Your argument is ignorant!
Both the protests at homes of Justices & the Jan 6th attack on Capitol are similar, in that they will end up costing taxpayers a lot more money. There was not a need to build $Million fences in DC until Jan 6th & also exposed a weak security plan at Capitol and now the justices will need more security forces from Government to protect them from radicals. People that are elected should never have to worry about being threatened or attacked for fulfilling their job .
I agree, so why haven’t these people been arrested like the Jan 6th folks? Oh I forgot, they are members of the Democrat party….
Contraception is a CHOICE! It is NOT a crime. This CHOICE is any one’s RIGHT.
Murder IS a CHOICE! It is also a CRIME. CRIME is NOT a RIGHT.
Abortion is MURDER, therefore it is a CRIME. Abortion is NOT anyone’s RIGHT!!!!!
