Progressive Outrage Over Dobbs Arguments Showcases the Left’s Growing Abortion Extremism

AMAC Exclusive – By Seamus Brennan

court

Following oral arguments in last week’s landmark Supreme Court case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, Democrats and the left-wing media appear to have dispensed with the last remnants of pretense that they have any qualms over abortion or concern for the lives of unborn babies.

The Dobbs case has been widely heralded as the most significant challenge to abortion law precedent in decades. During oral arguments, five of the nine Supreme Court justices signaled they may be prepared to revisit the precedents of Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey—the Supreme Court decisions that have cumulatively recognized and upheld expansive rights to abortion in the United States for nearly half a century. The left’s vitriolic reaction to the December 1st oral arguments demonstrates the extent to which progressives hold abortion as an inviolable cornerstone of their political identity and platform.

Not too long ago, Democrats’ stance on abortion by and large adhered to the guideline championed by former President Bill Clinton in the 1990s of making abortion “safe, legal, and rare.”

The “rare” part has long since been dispensed with. The 2020 Democratic National Committee platform noticeably omitted “rare” when it called for “safe and legal abortion,” which it deems to be “vital to the empowerment of women and girls.”

In the immediate aftermath of the Dobbs arguments, Democrats and progressive activists took it one step further, suggesting that abortion should not just be legal, but essentially encouraged. Congresswoman Cori Bush (D-MO), for example, took to Twitter to say that mere “legal” abortion is not enough: “I want a world where I’m not harassed when I got my abortion. Where I’m not shamed. Where I’m not considered lucky to be able to get one,” she wrote.

The extreme language didn’t stop there. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) echoed others in his party who celebrate abortion as “a fundamental right,” going as far as to claim that abortion is “essential.” Schumer’s colleague, Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) warned the justices on the High Court that a “revolution” will take place should they fail to preserve Roe and Casey. Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) asserted that the United States is “not even in a democracy” if women can’t have abortions.

Perhaps most disturbingly, outside the Supreme Court as the arguments were taking place, several pro-abortion protesters gleefully swallowed abortion pills while proudly displaying a banner that read, “We are taking abortion pills forever.” As Rich Lowry, editor of National Review, correctly observed, the “old line” that “abortion should be safe, legal, and rare” has quickly developed into the “new line” that “abortion should be safe, legal, and celebrated in verse and song.” Such actions seemed to virtually glamorize abortion as a sort of right of passage for women, reminiscent of actress Lena Dunham’s 2016 statement that “I still haven’t had an abortion, but I wish I had.”

The left’s campaign to justify abortion as “fundamental” and “constitutional” has always rested on hollow legal and scientific foundations. Pro-abortion legal scholar and dean of Stanford Law School, John Hart Ely, has written that Roe “was not constitutional law and gave almost no appearance of an obligation to try to be”—a sentiment echoed by liberal constitutional scholar Laurence Tribe, who asserted that “behind [Roe’s] own verbal smokescreen, the substantive judgment on which it rests is nowhere to be found.” Even Edward Lazarus, a former law clerk to the justice who authored the Roe opinion, Harry Blackmun, conceded that no one has “produced a convincing defense of Roe on its own terms.”

Democrats’ pro-abortion extremism also betrays their purported “pro-science” worldview, as they perpetually turn a blind eye to emerging mountains of research and ever-improving technology about the life of the child in the womb.   

Despite the left’s doomsday rhetoric last week, if the Court ultimately decides to overrule Roe and Casey next June, it would not only override decades’ worth of precedent and reverse two of the most constitutionally suspect decisions in the Court’s history, but it would also take a long-overdue step in protecting human life at its most innocent and defenseless stage.

The low IQ leftists have become very violent in recent years and there are no legal consequences for the violence they incite or commit. None. So were I a judge I would always have in the back of my mind that I don’t want these leftist terrorists to burn my house down. But we will see if they can get past that. Hopefully.

Abortion is evil and the murder of innocent babies. It’s as simple as that. For a political party to support such an outrageous practice and to insist that women be given the right to commit murder is beyond obscene and reprehensible. We are witnessing the beginning of the end of the Democratic Party. I for one will celebrate when that moment occurs.

Why not ask the fetus if it wants to be aborted or left alone to live a life where he or she is safe and legal if that’s what they are proposing for themselves? These are the same people that don’t want to put a gender on their child at birth and instead are waiting for the child itself to determine what they want to be known as. The next generation is going to be very weird if there even is a next/future generation.

Those who back abortions and mislabel their stance as “pro-choice” or “a woman’s right to the health and control of her own body” are so wrong. It is not a choice, it is now murder. A choice was made to engage in sex. That is where the choice was. Now it is a life. Simple as that. And as far as the rape and incest argument goes, well that is pretty rare. Maybe in those instances, but it is still killing an innocent. As far as the my body my choice phrase, it is no longer your body once you have conceived, it is another human being’s body. We sinners just want to have our good times and relish in our sin with no consequences, even if it means the taking of an innocent life.

I am assuming that the argument is not about quiet abortion done in 1st trimester but about the women whose lifestyle would be worse for the baby then the abortion the only way to stop that would be making sure they can’t get pregnant would be more humane for the woman and the baby who would dare? I imagine that such baby would be severely affected by that lifestyle

Ill be very very surprised if there’s any significant change to roe v wade. The court has already shown that they’re cowed by the prospect of riots and ‘direct action’ by maniacs. The two newest members have school age kids. Those kids will need secret service protection and im not sure they have it. The left is monstrous.

Unfortunately, I think we’ll get a win but Roberts will go to great lengths to make sure it’s not a full win. If Roberts sees that the vote will go 5-4 in favor of Mississippi then he’ll switch making it 6-3 and then as Chief Justice he gets to say who will write the opinion — him. He’ll then make sure the minimal impact to Roe is done. This would be entirely in keeping with his playbook, see his decisions on Obamacare and what not. He’ll want to minimize damage to the court’s repuatation with the Left so he’ll limit the impact of the decision. That will probably wind up being States can outlaw abortion at an earlier stage but not completely :(.

In my opinion, a “self imposed curse” came upon our nation when abortion was made to be legal . Having an abortion for the sole purpose of ‘birth-control” is the most UN-human thing a woman can do. I understand there are times when abortion is a medical necessity and that is an entirely different discussion. In today’s world, abortion is done for “convenience sake”… and it is done for as many invalid reasons as there are women who do it.
People need to be responsible for their actions.
Sadly … “Taking responsibility” has become a virtue that is in VERY “short supply” these days.

Those who are so grossly in favor of wantonly murdering the most vulnerable of human beings are, at some point, going to be forced to walk or run the gauntlet of the 60 plus million who were aborted and that might be their Hell to bear for eternity.

There is little need for abortion today with all the birth control methods available. There is no “right” to abortion guaranteed in the United States Constitution. Sometimes, it is important to view life realistically and not make up fantasies to suit certain misconceptions.

Logically, almost no one disagrees with a “woman’s right to choose” whether or not to bear a child. The only real question in dispute is the issue of WHEN she must make her choice. “Pro-life folks say she should do so before engaging in sexual contact, and that waiting until she discovers she is PG is irresponsible sexual behavior that’s not acceptable. “Pro-choice” people say irresponsible sex is fine, and the woman can make her choice up until the time of birth. The cheap, easy availability of effective birth control today is an argument for the former position.

In my opinion it seems the argument for abortion is centered around a woman’s right to autonomy over her own body. Fine, either choose to get your tubes tied or choose to abstain from sex.
When choosing to abort a fetus, that means an unborn child for all you libbies out there, you ARE NOT choosing autonomy over your own body anymore, you are choosing to end the life of a human, as yet unborn, being.
Good luck when that gets Judged.
And have a wonderful day.

Between 1933 and 1945 the German government murdered between 6 and 7 million Jews, Slavs, gypsies, homosexuals, and disabled people. The War Crimes trials and the United Nations declared that genocide was bad and many Germans were justifiably hanged. As of Janurary 2021, 62,502,904babies have been murdered in the United States since 1973. Worldwide, more than 1.6 BILLION babies have been murdered since 1980. How did we get from “genocide is bad” to “genocide is a fundamental right?” Perhaps the depraved abortionists would begin to understand the depths of their evilness if they were subject to the same crimes they commit — scissors through the skull, dismemberment, organ harvesting, and saline injections. Because abortion promoters and providers have no regard for human life, they cannot have a valid opinion on ANYTHING else. They should be excluded from public office and punished for the atrocities they commit.

The lefttards think abortion should be encouraged??? If that isn’t a political stance for Communism, I am not sure what is. The Commies don’t want any distraction that takes away from the subjugated population and interferes with the commanded laws of the ruling class of the Commune. I’ve said it before … Communism wants to RULE the people, not GOVERN the people The Democrap Party wants to RULE the people, not Govern the people.

I really believe that these radical Pro Abortion women are in the minority. They are loud and hateful and of course the lame stream media loves them so they are on the news all the time. I really would say that at least 75% or more women would keep their babies if abortion weren’t so easy. We have birth control that works so they just should use that. I hope the Supreme Court rules in favor of life and not murder because any rational, sane person knows that it’s a living human being in the mother’ womb just waiting to grow and be born. Let the one’s who can’t live without an abortion go to another country to have one if they must. I pray for the Supreme Court judges to rule by the Constitution where there is nothing about abortion.

Is the DNA of an embryo in the womb of a woman human DNA? Then it is a human. Allowed to develop, does an embryo ever become anything other than a human? Then it is a human. If you abort it, you are killing a human.

The Sixties radicals are dying off, while at the same time their voices are growing shriller and more severe. While many on the right are (justifiably) concerned about the course the country is taking, I prefer to be more optimistic and see the “progressives” going down in flames. The Left is dying. The only question is how much more damage they will do before they disappear.

We conservatives will be here to pick up the pieces.

The Democrats in general are positivists, check the definition while thinking about their attitudes toward the Constitution, religion, and abortion in comparison to the average man on the street thinks. those of the rabid left are positivists to the extreme and perhaps do not actually what they believe in or what their reality or real aim is and the catastrophe that what they want will lead to.

Abortion seems fairly well destined to return to the state legislatures, where politicians on both sides will be forced to finally take a stand on the issue. There are no penumbras of privacy in the U.S. Constitution. Nor angels dancing on the heads of pins. It was always a pleasant fiction introduced by Blackmun as an appeasement to leftists who proposed a false choice between tearing babies apart versus tearing the country apart. Now, they’re back at it again, wailing and gnashing their teeth over the inhumanity of limiting the murder of innocents. The real losers here aren’t American women. Because abortion will not end with the Casey decision. It will merely place reasonable restrictions on abortion. The kinds of restrictions that should always have been present. The kinds of restrictions that leftists would have been wise to adopt long ago, rather than forcing a new and uncertain hand to be dealt to them. No, the real losers here are the abortion industry, itself, which will be forced to slug it out in dozens of state courts, as legislatures adopt these restrictions. They only have themselves to blame. If they weren’t so keenly focused on killing babies up until they take their first breaths, and laying the groundwork for future markets in infant body parts (which is where we all know they want to go), perhaps their pro-life opponents wouldn’t have fought quite so hard for justice.

It causes me great shame to know that I was responsible for two different women, one multiple times, having abortions. To say that I was a young man, intent of having sex, unprotected, of course, using every trick that young men have come up with, except for rape, just for my own gratification! When I was young, anything goes, be it coercion, or flat out lying, was ok. Then, I started having babies with my wife, and, eventually, found my way to God. Oh, if only I could go back in time, and somehow convince my younger self that it was NOT right! such are the recriminations of the “Saved and Forgiven”, because while you are forgiven, nothing says anything about forgetting…

A Landmark Case!

During the 1960s, a husband and wife in the Flagstaff, Arizona area were very abusive to their children. The couple appeared before Judge Coker who gave the couple two choices: Spend a lengthly period of time in prison or under surgery for sterilization which both had chosen!

Since the abortionist wish to continue being irresponsible, perhaps this maybe a solution: Sterilization! Since these people do not respect the Lord’s gift of having children, than it is best when they do not have any at all to abort!
