To Make Fun Of Democracy: Supreme Court’s Abortion Ruling Questioned

Put up a sign between the US Supreme Court and the nearby US Capitol. Taylor Tracy couldn’t understand why she had fewer constitutional rights than she did when she woke up that morning. She said “my body is my choice” and “women’s right to choose.” “It breaks my heart,” said the sports marketer, who is 28 years old. “Most of the women who have had abortions legally in the U.S. are black or brown, but the five judges who had the last say were four powerful men and one white woman. We want more people to be able to get guns. Still, we are taking away the rights of women. It seems like we are going backward.”

On Friday, millions of women lost the right to get an abortion because the US Supreme Court overturned a ruling that had been in place for almost 50 years and other precedents that had protected that right. Orthodox Justice Samuel Alito wrote in the majority opinion of the court that Roe v. Wade was “highly wrong and deeply harmful” and that it was up to the states to decide whether or not to limit abortion or make it illegal. The liberal minority on the court said, “We protest with sadness, both for this Court and for the millions of American women who lost a basic constitutional protection today.”

About half of the states are likely to ban abortions because of this decision, though the length of time it takes for these laws to go into effect varies. Even though the decision was widely expected because of a draught opinion that was leaked last month, it was still a shock to Donald Trump’s presidency and was sure to divide America. It also solidified the Supreme Court’s position as an alternative power center that could upset the delicate balance between the executive, the legislature, and the judiciary.

Just 24 hours before, Justice struck down New York’s restrictions on carrying concealed handguns in public. This could be similar to other state gun laws, even though there have been recent mass shootings in California, New York, and Texas. allowed new legal problems to arise. It was a win for the gun lobby and a loss for what Joe Biden was trying to do to stop the violence.

A well-known historian named Simon Shama wrote on Twitter on Friday, “American democracy is in deep trouble. If the constitution is changed to let a small group of people rule, it can’t stay the same. The back-to-back decisions were the result of a long campaign by conservatives, led by influential groups like the Federalist Society and the Heritage Foundation, to move the judiciary to the right. Clarence Thomas, John Roberts (who is now Chief Justice), and Samuel Alito were all put on the Supreme Court by Republican presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush.

Donald Trump chose Amy Connie Barrett, Neil Gorsuch, and Brett Kavanaugh to be on the Supreme Court. All three of them voted to remove the limit on carrying guns and take away abortion rights. When Senate Republicans blocked Barack Obama’s last choice for the Supreme Court, Merrick Garland, on the false grounds that it was an election year, they put the Democrats in the red. Then, Trump, who was only president for one term and lost the popular vote by 3 million, chose Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Connie Barrett to be judges. This is the most important thing he left behind.

Roe v. Wade was thrown out by the court against the wishes of a Democratic president, a Congress run by Democrats, and the people. Folk Dharma Research Institute Think Tank found that 61 percent of Americans thought Roe should stay the law and that only 36 percent thought it should be overturned. Even the most religious Americans wanted to keep Roe in place. Edward Fallon “I’m afraid it’s not very democratic,” said an associate professor at the Marquette University Law School in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Now, the part of the federal government that is the least democratic is working to take back freedoms that were very popular with the American public. This is done to further an ideological goal.

“This is a recipe for trouble, of course, for protests and political upheaval, since they seem determined to do something that goes against what the public wants.” Both the White House and Congress have changed because of the rise of activist judges. On Friday, people who support abortion rights gathered in Washington in front of the shining dome of the US Capitol, where the Supreme Court was fenced off. Their elected representatives were saddened by Rowe’s death, but they couldn’t do anything about it.

Even from the White House, which was two miles away, it looked like the president had no political power. Serious female employees, including Susan Rice, the adviser on domestic policy, and Karine Jean-Pierre, the press secretary, gathered under a staircase in the cross-hall to answer Biden. From different walls, you can see portraits of Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, who were presidents during a time when the cry seemed holy.

Biden called it “a sad day for the court and the country” and said, “Three judges nominated by a president, Donald Trump, were at the heart of today’s decision to raise the scale of justice and take away a fundamental right of women in this country.” “Make no mistake: this decision is the end result of a decades-long plan to change the way our laws work. I think this is the Supreme Court making a terrible mistake and giving in to extreme ideology.

He went on: “With this decision, the conservative majority of the Supreme Court shows how extreme this is and how far they are from the majority of people in this country. They have made the United States stand out as one of the most developed countries in the world. The President said that he can’t use his power to make sure that people have the right to choose a woman. Congress’s only chance is to pass a federal law that restores Roe v. Wade’s protections, which depends on Democrats winning the midterm elections. “Roe is running for office this fall,” he said. “Freedoms for each person are on the ballot.”

Joe Biden can’t bring back a woman’s right to choose, but he urged people to vote in the midterm elections on the issue. EPA photo by Oliver Contreras Others say that there is another way to stop minority rule: adding more judges to the Supreme Court, which currently has nine. Demand Justice pointed to this week’s decisions on guns and abortion as proof that change is needed.

Christopher Congoits co-founder and lead attorney said, “This is part of a decades-long plan by Republicans to do through the Supreme Court what they can’t do through the democratically elected parts of Congress. After some of the worst mass shootings in our country’s history, it has been a few days since we saw lawmakers find it harder to fight gun violence. We’ve now seen the right to abortion go wrong.

“Seventy to eighty percent of Americans agree with these ideas, and I think we’ll see them again next week in a big way to see if the Environmental Protection Agency has the power. Take action to stop climate change. This was another point that between 70 and 80% of Americans agreed with. This is another thing that Republicans are doing through our irresponsible courts that they couldn’t do through Congress or the White House.

Only 25% of Americans say they have “a lot” or “quite a lot” of faith in the Supreme Court, down from 36% a year ago. This is the lowest level of faith in the Supreme Court in American history. Gallup Poll says that Kang thinks that rebuilding trust is important for the health of America’s democracy, which is getting weaker quickly.

He said, “Today’s decision shows that the Supreme Court is the problem, so any solution has to involve the Supreme Court.” “The president and Congress can do other things, but if we want to solve these problems, we really need to fix the court.”

It’s Not The End, It’s The Opening Salute, And He Made That Clear In His Choice. 

As time goes on, calls become even more important. Thomas wrote in a Friday letter that the Supreme Court should review other legal decisions that protect same-sex relationships, marriage equality, and access to birth control. Biden warned, “This court is taking us down an extreme and dangerous path.” Christina Xintzin Ramirez, President of NextGen America, an organization that works to get young people to vote, said, “This is an extreme right-wing minority takeover that wants to take back benefits for LGBTQ people, women, and people of color.”

“It’s not the end, it’s just the beginning, and they made that clear in their decision. You heard Clarence Thomas say that they will look into how they can change the basic rights of LGBTQ people. In this country, the people recently won. Ramirez said, “We did not beat fascism in 2020; we beat it back.” But it would take more than one election to get rid of fascism in this country. Map of the restrictions on abortion in the US by state

The ruling on Friday is likely to lead to different laws in each state. 26 are sure or likely to happen. The Guttmacher Institute think tank wants to ban abortion right away. In Alabama, three clinics that used to do abortions stopped because they were afraid of being prosecuted under a law from 1951. On Friday morning, the women were suddenly sent back to the waiting room. But Democratic governors of states promised to make security better.

Back at the Supreme Court, the sun was out, but the mood was gloomy and defiant.
