Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, June 29, 2020

The Supreme Court on Monday struck down a restrictive Louisiana law that would have left the state with only one abortion clinic. Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. joined the court's liberals in striking down the law, saying it was required by the court's decision overturning a Texas law in 2016.

Roberts is becoming a bigger thorn in the side of Deplorables than RBG.

I do wonder to what extent these decisions are made with full awareness of societal context.

Hey Nixon, this is a win for the good guys. The law struck down would have closed all but one provider in the entire state of LA. It's an affirmation of a woman's right to choose unencumbered by junk science designed to restrict access to services.

And yes Snoofy, it appears that Roberts is going to try and adhere to precedence even as the other right wing judges show no such deference.

He knows. Anyone with a lick of sense knows.

Nixon was being snarky.

I don't want to get too exited yet.

But it looks like we are finally flattening the curve on the disease of Trumpism.

So much for all that stupid yammering about how Donald Trump is a modern day King Cyrus and doing God's work... Unless of course God doesn't want abortion to be outlawed...

Trump is being taught to NOT insult the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.

Just because a judge is appointed by a Republican, doesn't mean the Right is always going to win.

I wonder when rightoecentrelawyer is going to show up and start reminiscing about the time he spoke to lots of people on this subject

You know, excusing them of all trump culpability because of "the courts"

Today's "conservative"
Even when they win, they lose

I think Roberts is afraid his court will be seen as too political, so he's going to bend over backwards until RBG dies. God help us if she passes this year.

Roberts is smart. In this day and age America will not abide the abolition of abortion as a right of women.

Don't want to jinx it but I doubt even Moscow Mitch could pull that rabbit out of hat now. I think the stack is too high and the time is getting short.

But I would like to see a few more months pass just to be safe. When Biden takes the helm she can finally retire. Thank the Gawds we had her when we really needed her.

When one has so little intelligence that they think trump is competent, they certainly won't understand that the law is not political.

But why are the talibaptists so obsessed with this abortion subject? Because they, also being racists, are trying to keep white women from continuing to lower the the number of the white majority.

When Trump said we would get tired of all the winning... who knew it would be democrats doing all the winning.

Actually what it proves is that the conservatrons in power positions know it would be a bad idea to restrict access to abortions. They told you differently because they wanted your vote and they know how easy it is to extract that from you with meaningless promises.

Terminating pregnancies serve a very important function for the conservatives because it allows them to partake in dalliances with few long term consequences... and they are loathed to give up dalliances... or face consequences... what else would they waste your tax dollars on?

Seriously... PHesterbutt take your nasty little finger-wagging life lessons back to your compound of cowards in tin hats.

Funny comment from the internet:
John Roberts' daughter Josie is now 16 years old and in my head canon I like to think she is radicalizing him because this amuses me...
Josie: So, the abortion thing?
John: Yeah.
Josie: You know it's --------, right.
John: ...
Josie: C'mon, dad, admitting privileges are more about how many patients you'll bring than patient safety.
John: *that Hank Hill sigh*

I think Justice Roberts sided with maintaining the Supreme Court's history in the abortion cases.

It just so happened that he had to side with the liberal Justices in order to attain that.

Justice Roberts of late seems to be focused upon maintaining the independence, gravitas and legacy of the Supreme Court. As such he seems to be reluctant to just toss out prior decisions only because the make-up of the Supreme Court has changed recently.

Eventually, the other youngster Justices may come around to protecting the Supreme Court as well. Or not.

Lol nice noles.

I'm not really surprised by Roberts on this and other recent cases. From what my unschooled eye has seen it feels like while he may lean conservative his readings have always leaned on precedence and rule of law not only conservative interpretations.

Now abortion clinics like the one run by Kermitt Gosnell can keep running like the back alley abortion we are warned about, only legally!

Anyone who cares about safe abortions and women's lives should oppose this.

@#29 ... Anyone who cares about safe abortions and women's lives should oppose this. ...

I disagree.

Anyone who cares about safe abortions and women's lives should fix any problems in attaining that goal.

What they should not do is use those problems to try to ban abortions.
