Roe v. Wade is on trial. Don’t let the Left threaten the Supreme Court over it

Roe v. Wade is on the docket again, and everybody knows exactly what will happen. 

No, we cannot predict the ruling on Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban. Republican-appointed judges are inevitably mercurial on this issue in hearings. We would not be surprised to see Justices John Roberts, Brett Kavanaugh, or even Neil Gorsuch uphold part or even all of the current deformed jurisprudence on abortion. 

But we do know with certainty that the Left will use media pressure, corporate pressure, and even violent threats against the republic in a tireless lobby effort to preserve Roe and Planned Parenthood v. Casey

The abortion lobby has long been the beating heart of the Democratic Party. Defense of abortion and subsidies for Planned Parenthood are the central items of Democratic dogma. On war, taxes, spending, labor, and even guns and climate change, Democrats allow some dissent. But not on abortion. The party’s fundraising apparatus is inextricably tied with the abortion industry.

Roe and Casey are pillars of the abortion cause. These rulings are grounded not at all in the Constitution nor in science but instead clumsily crafted by dishonest activist judges to invent a right to kill unborn children. They took abortion out of the realm of representative democracy. Legal scholars across the political spectrum know the rulings are indefensible. They know that any honest judge would throw them over the side hastily like a leaky, toxic nuclear reactor from a Soviet submarine. 

That’s why the Democrats need to resort to threats. With six conservative judges on the court for the first time in nearly a century, Democrats are afraid that their holy grail is in danger. They will stop at nothing to protect it. 

Specifically, Democrats aided by media allies will declare that the Supreme Court becomes illegitimate if it strikes down Roe. This is absurd because again, pro-choice legal scholars admit the ruling “is not constitutional law and gives almost no sense of an obligation to try to be.” But Democrats and liberal journalists will threaten to delegitimize the court because that’s what they’ve done in the past any time they didn’t like its ruling.
