The Supreme Court overturned a Texas law requiring abortion clinics to adhere to basic safety regulations. These basic regulations have protected women from dangerous abortions and saved many unborn babies’ lives. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas berated the court in a written statement accusing the justices on the Supreme Court of bending the rules to appease the abortion industry.
In his dissent, Justice Thomas wrote that the Supreme Court has a tendency to apply different values and importance to Constitutional rights. Thomas said that a law either infringes on the Constitutional rights on an individual or it doesn’t. There is no in-between, no bending of the rules to suit a particular agenda. If a plaintiff doesn’t have a Constitutional right in support of his or her claim, it is not up to the Supreme Court to make one. The Court does not legislate, it interprets Constitutional law.
Chicks on the Right report:
On Monday, the Supreme Court overturned the Texas law which required abortion clinics to abide by basic safety regulations. Ensuring the safety of the women trying to murder their babies? Totally unconstitutional.
I swear, they make this stuff up as they go along.
However, not everyone on the High Court has lost it. Justice Clarence Thomas penned a scathing dissent, slamming the Court for “bending the rules” to essentially create the “putative right to abortion.” It’s worth a read. Or seven.
