The Supreme Court is in the midst of the most consequential term in a generation.
Democrats are terrified about how these cases will turn out.
And Trey Gowdy revealed how Clarence Thomas set Democrats up for a crushing defeat.
Clarence Thomas is on record as wanting to correct a historical wrong and overturn Roe v. Wade which created abortion on demand in America.
The Supreme Court just heard oral arguments on a Texas law that effectively banned abortion by allowing private citizens to file civil lawsuits seeking up to $10,000 in damages from abortion mills that performed abortions after six weeks.
Trey Gowdy interviewed Judicial Crisis Network President Carrie Severino on his Sunday night Fox News program where the two discussed the abortion cases before the court this term.
Severino explained that the Texas abortion case was not really about abortion as the justices heard arguments about technical issues regarding if the law can take effect or not.
But Severino did point out that on December 1 the court will hear oral arguments on a Mississippi law that bans abortion after 15 weeks.
And that is the case many conservatives believe is the vehicle to overturn Roe v. Wade and put a stop to the nearly 50 year-long killing of unborn babies.
“People are talking about this case as if it’s going right to the heart of Roe v. Wade. We actually have a case on the docket that’s going to do that, but that’s not argued until December. This case was really about some procedural issues that are very unique to the way that the Texas law is structured,” Severino told Gowdy.
Severino shredded the faulty reasoning in the Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood cases – which established and then refined the abortion on demand regime – by pointing out the simple truth that the Constitution does not specifically lay out any “right” to an abortion.
“In the case of abortion, it is a little bit different. The state is not saying we’re going to perform the abortion in this case. They’re simply saying can this law stand. And, as Justice Scalia himself said, a lot it is not about whether I believe in abortion or not. It’s about if the Constitution talks about abortion. And in this case, the Constitution doesn’t say anything about it one way or the other which means it’s left to the states,” Severino continued.
Severino explained that the Supreme Court needed to eventually weigh in and do the right thing by striking down Roe v. Wade, which would send abortion back to the states for the legislatures to solve.
“If they don’t weigh in on that core question, we’re going to keep on having cases. Whether it’s from Texas, from Arkansas, from Kentucky, we have all these cases in line testing other aspects of it. So there’s no way for them to get away from dealing with the real underlying question which is not what do you think about abortion. That’s something for the legislature. It’s is abortion really in the text of the Constitution itself. And if not, then why are we as judges making these calls and why don’t we leave it to the Americans’ representatives,” Severino concluded.
That would be bad news for Democrats.
Even in blue states abortion on demand is not popular.
In the Virginia gubernatorial election Republican Glenn Youngkin won the election by about 75,000 votes out of 3,260,727 votes cast.
Exit polls showed abortion was the number one issue for eight percent of voters meaning 260,858 Virginians voted on the issue of abortion.
Democrats made Youngkin supposedly wanting to ban abortion a centerpiece of their campaign and despite Virginia trending Democrat, Youngkin won 60 percent of voters that rated abortion as their top issue netting 52,172 votes in the process.
Two-thirds of Youngkin’s margin of victory came from Virginians that vote solely on the issue of abortion.
Conventional wisdom in the corporate media is that the Supreme Court striking down Roe v. Wade creates a losing political issue for Republicans.
But conventional wisdom in the corporate media is usually wrong.
And Virginia proved that Republicans could run and win on the pro-life issue even in blue states like Virginia.
