“The radical Supreme Court is eviscerating Americans’ rights and endangering their health and safety.

“Today, the Republican controlled Supreme Court has achieved their dark, extreme goal of ripping away a woman’s right to make their own reproductive health decisions.

  1. If Reagan hadn’t been talked into Sandra Day O’Connor by Barry Goldwater and Robert Bork had not been “borked”, we might have had this ruling decades ago.

    Right now the law is tax funded abortion on demand in Illinois and even a Republican Supreme Court won’t legislate from the bench and change that.

    But there are other issues (like Pritzker’s illegal orders) that can be stopped.

    I just hope that Shanes’ “everyone is a Democrat but me (since Judge Hutchinson doesn’t exist)” campaign won’t ruin the opportunity this fall to elect a Republican in the 2nd Supreme Court District of Illinois this fall.

  2. Praise God. Let’s return this nation back to a Constitution Republic, whereas, limited government exists for the people and by the people. 🇺🇸 🙏

  3. Get ready for an influx of abortion refugees from WI, MI, IN, IA, MO, TN into Illinois.

    Maybe build wall around the entire state?

  4. TRUMP WINS AGAIN – BWAHAHAHAHA! 🤣

    And an honorable mention to the culturally greedy RBG for screwing things up for the Left. 😁

    The power of UltraMaga Orange Tornado Man lives! 👍

    And in closing I would like to state – FJB ! 😂

  5. OMG what has the world come to

    women want the right to abort babies

    and they will riot to prove their point

    it used to be that if you had to make a decision to choose between the Life of the baby and that of the

    Mother, abortion was allowed if that was your decision

    I had to make a solemn promise that,if it came to her life and the baby’s life …

    I would choose the baby’s life

    I thank God I never had to…10 pregnancies we lost one between 4 and 5 ,,,

    she never got over that ..
    now women want the right to kill babys indiscriminately just because they dont want one…..
    How Sad

  6. My Body My Choice.

    Lose your job if you don’t get a death jab.

    Anyone protesting this decision clearly doesn’t have a basic clue.

    Typical liberals.

    Joe Biden is going to speak, I mean read a teleprompter, shortly.

  7. LOL, the dog whistle has been blown. Watch the outcome. Funny how the hyperventilating media about the gun law ruling went into the dumpster. Fat boy’s and Beetlejuice’s respective press conferences were priceless today. Stupid question since I’m an idiot. Why are the fools standing around them still wearing masks? Oh nevermind, we live in IL.

  8. It is well past the time for the appropriate Catholic Bishops in the home States of Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden to kick them out, excommunicate them for their position on abortion.

    Per

    https://www.catholicnewsagency.com/resource/55397/the-catholic-church-and-abortion

    “The Roman Catholic Church has consistently condemned abortion — the direct and purposeful taking of the life of the unborn child. In principle, Catholic Christians believe that all life is sacred from conception until natural death, and the taking of innocent human life, whether born or unborn, is morally wrong. The Church teaches, “Human life is sacred because from its beginning it involves the creative action of God and it remains for ever in a special relationship with the Creator, who is its sole end. God alone is the Lord of life from its beginning until its end: no one can under any circumstance claim for himself the right directly to destroy an innocent human being” (“Donum vitae,” 5).”

  9. Interesting. The media is going non stop on R v W while cocaine Mitch approved red flag laws are going to be pushed thru under your noses by the house.

    Never let a good distraction go to waste.

    Good try media.

    It’s fun to be awake and see what’s habbening

  10. This demented, diapered Pos didn’t speak out about the attempted assassination on a Supreme Court justice.

  11. There is birth control, or you could always keep your legs closed.

  12. The Bible says nothing about abortion.

    Jesus said nothing about abortion.

    Abortion existed, and wad governed in legal codes, a thousand years before Jesus’ time.

    If the writers of the Bible wanted to include anything about abortion, as they did regarding having sex with menstruating women, eating pork, and hundreds of other details, they would have done it.

    Find the earliest Church ruling on abortion.

    Think about the Supreme Court majority stand on literal reading of documents and not reading into the document rights not explicitly protected.

  13. Lol.. look at flaming liberal Martin conflating this into catholicism. Just another intelligent liberal. Pure stupidity on display

  14. Cite the earliest pronouncement of any Christian church on abortion.

  15. When you’re done lol-ing, also find something I’ve posted that is “flaming liberal.”

  16. Thou shalt not kill. If we read that literally, we need to get rid of all weapons, the military, rights of self-defense, and more. Of course, the argument is there: a fetus is a child, abortion ends the life, abortion violates that commandment by killing.

    But the better translation is thou shalt not murder. That leaves you to define murder. The Hebrews knew what murder was, but there is no reference to abortion as murder in the Old Testament.

    The argument that the Bible prohibits abortion is weak. And again, Jesus said a lot and much was written about his thoughts about life, but not a word about abortion.

  17. Early Christians would care for babies set out to die.

    Not from the Bible, however.

  18. Hospitals, fire departments, other places have policies to allow safe abandonment of newborns.

  19. **Early Christians would care for babies set out to die.**

    Come on, Cal.

    That’s not abortion.

    Do better.

  20. I guess Cal can speak for himself, but I don’t think he was comparing abandonment of a child with abortion.

    Early Christians knew of abortion, but did not prohibit it.

    The majority of USAians today support abortion rights as defined by Roe v Wade.

    There are no statistics on the percentage who would walk away from an abandoned baby, but one in 100,00?

  21. Lack of education is destructive.

    IF one uses the Bible as the sole instrument of moral argument then one should know what it says.

    The Bible is explicit about when God views life beginning.

    The Bible is explicit in its condemnation of murder.

    If one reads The Bible in Common English then one should be able to distinguish the difference between the definitions of “murder” and “killing”.

    Abortion is very clearly verboten under the “Thou shalt not murder” order.

    Killing in defense of others, particularly innocents, is just fine.

    According to The Bible.

    Perhaps one should know The Bible if they argue it.

    And perhaps one shouldn’t be so ignorantly narrow they argue Sola Scriptura.

  22. I made no argument for or against abortion rights.

    I said the Bible does not prohibit it.

    You cite no passages, but I’ve read all, including focus on those used to argue against abortion.

    You can read meaning into passages about respecting life, but those arguments are of the same kind as those used by pacifists to argue against war, self-defense, and capital punishment.

    The Bible does not prohibit abortion, any more than it prohibits war, killing in self-defense, closing borders to those in danger, or many of the other ways it is used in political and social arguments.

  23. What we Americans need at this time is MORE and EXPLICIT information about abortions. Videos from hospital operating rooms of surgeons removing parts of a developing human body from girls and women. Perhaps a collection of videos of pregnant girls/women at various months. This should be shown on tv prime time, many times. In addition, the videos would be required viewing with discussion in health or similar classes for Juniors and Seniors in ALL high schools in the U.S. Attendance and viewing would be documented and be required to graduate from high school.

    With the above, all Americans, including politicians, will be better informed to form their opinions on the topic of abortions.

  24. The lack of a specific mention of abortion in the U.S. Constitution seems to be a main reason for the overturning of Roe v Wade.

  25. That’s exactly it, Cal. The term “substantive due process,” was made up by academics to describe rights people have that cannot be taken away by the state, but which are not defined in the constitution. They are based on the 5th and 14th amendments. The constitution doesn’t say persons of the same sex can marry, or that people can drink alcohol or that I can play Tool at 120 db on my stereo at midnight or drive 95 mph in town. Some of those things the state regulates and no one thinks twice. Other things people think they have a right to.

  26. And I predict you’re going to hear a lot more of the term substantive due process in the future as it becomes politicized as a buzzword for rights state governments want to take away.

  27. What might some rights might Blue Democrat States want to take away from we Americans as Martin fears?

  28. Justice Thomas named three in his concurring opinion.

    Read that and read about substantive due process and you’ll find a list.

  29. I said nothing about fearing anything, nor about my opinion about abortion or any other rights.

    Why would you care, and why would you think I care what some anonymous random caliphatian thinks about my opinions?

  30. Two more comments and I’m done on the subject for this evening.

    One example of a substantive due process right recognized by the court is in Troxelv Granville.

    The court said states cannot interfere with the rights of parents do make basic decisions in raising their kids, including a decision to exclude grandparents from contact with the kids.

    The court struck down “grandparent visitation” laws, though they still exist for limited circumstances, as when a parent is dead and the survivor parent will not allow contact with dead parent’s parents.

    Second comment: I’ve always wondered if the 9th Amendment would ever be brought into the light, because it sounds powerful:

    “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”

  31. The Bible does prohibit abortion based on “Thou shall not murder.”

    You’re not that stupid.

    Evil, maybe, but not stupid.
