Major Supreme Court Decision Makes Liberal Heads Explode Nationwide

This Wednesday, the Supreme Court will start hearing arguments inside the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a Mississippi law outlaws abortion after the initial 15 weeks of pregnancy. It has been called the “largest abortion case in decades,” and it could prove how effectively Trump delivered on his abortion promises.

As arguments start this week in the abortion case, we can definitely expect to see and hear the normal angry chorus from liberals on how conservatives want to enforce their morality onto everyone. Vox is already publishing articles revealing images of women dressed as characters from the cringy Handmaid’s Tale show.

Not only is this sort of protesting overdramatic, but it is also flat-out wrong. If Roe were to not be the “law of the land,” as pro-abortion people love to say, we would not be under a regime in which abortions happen in back alleys or with coat hangers. But that is the future liberals want people to envision if the Supreme Court removes Roe.

Instead, the topic of abortion would return to the states, where the Constitution envisioned most issues resting. While it is true as many as 26 states might outlaw abortion if Roe is struck down, federalism will rule the day as the topic of abortion would be up to every individual state.

William McGurn said in the WSJ this week that, since Roe, the pro-life movement has had to play by the rules of the abortion movement.

He writes:

“This is the result of the Supreme Court’s Roe decision and the Planned Parenthood v. Casey decision in 1992. In both cases, a handful of justices took abortion away from the American people and instead imposed their view on the whole country. In doing so, far from settling the topic, the Supreme Court only inflamed the passions that abortion causes on both sides.”

McGurn further points out that the topic is not about the legality of abortion nationwide as much about whether the public can make these decisions at voting booth in states and referendums.
