Is The Supreme Court Moving Toward Reversing Roe v. Wade?

Posted by Catherine Morgan on April 22, 2007


Yesterday President Bush said, “The Supreme Court’s decision is an affirmation of the progress we have made over the past six years in protecting human dignity and upholding the sanctity of life. We will continue to work for the day when every child is welcomed in life and protected in law.”

And yet the Bush administration is actively supporting policies to limit poor children’s access to state child health insurance programs. In short, the Court’s decision in Gonzales v. Carhart — and Bush’s professed support for it — reinforces the sense, once again, that only the unborn deserve protection in this country. Not by ensuring universal health care, paid maternity leave, or an end to workplace pregnancy discrimination — only by restricting pregnant women’s access to health care. — read full article



Supreme Court Decision Marks Set Back For Women’s Health And Privacy


Washington, DC — Nancy Keenan, president of NARAL Pro- Choice America, issued the following statement in response to today’s Supreme Court decision in the Federal Abortion Ban cases.

“Today’s decision shows Bush’s appointees have moved the Court in a direction that could further undermine Roe v. Wade and protections for women’s health. The door is now open for politicians like George W. Bush to interfere even more in our personal, private medical decisions. The Court has given anti-choice state lawmakers the green light to open the flood gates and launch additional attacks on safe, legal abortion, without any regard for women’s health. — read full article

    i suppose it’s too late for Mrs Gonzales to have an abortion?

    this is just wrong, but at least the article gets into the analysis and locates not only the inappropriateness but the reversable potential of the decision. Who the f$%k do Bush et al think they’re kidding – ‘we are showing the respect we have for life and God by forcing rape victims whose lives may be threatened by giving birth to die for the foetus they don’t want to raise…while we sell cluster bombs to Israel, reduce nations to third world status, and pump the planet to biodiversity holocaustic global meltdown’. Dubya is Damien.

  2. Hi “typingisnotactivism” —

    I’m sick of hearing Bush say he is pro-life…..How many are dying in Iraq….Afghanistan??? Should he really be aloud to have it both ways??? And what about the embryos from fertility clinics that he wont let be used for research to save life….but does not protest to this “life” being tossed in the trash??? See 1 minute video…
    The word Hypocrite comes to mind.

    Thanks for your comment. I hope you will get a chance to check out some of my other blogs also….I love to hear other thoughts and comments.

    I don’t think Rove v Wade will be overturned. The Republicans would lose their core issue to stir up the “religious right” and thaty would be suicide for an already suicidal bunch of extremists.

    Nice blog.

  4. I sure hope you are right. Thanks for the comment.

    4sure Catherine Morgan. I’ve only got this one going but it may be some consolation to know we aren’t digging our Little Sheriff either. Roll on elections!

  6. The elections can’t come soon enough for me.

    I’m really disgusted how these right-winged, self-rightous, ignorant people get away with this crap. Pro-lifers want every baby born, but once the child is here, the families are on their own. They call themselve right to life, but they want less rights for poor people to get government subsidies and are againsts health-care reform because they don’t want taxes to go up. There’s no such thing as social responsibility in their eyes. Damnit, this pisses me off!

    maybe neocons should be fed to the starving when the revolution comes. nix two global problems in one hit. hell, maybe we should just do that now.

  9. “Lunawolf” – Thanks for your comment. I agree with you 100%!

    “Typingisnotactivism” – I don’t even think the starving would much like to eat a neocon…..but I get what you are saying. Thanks for commenting.

    It’s totally inconceivable to me that there are still people so incredibly stupid or brainwashed that they feel this body of people (“government”) should have the right to govern anyone’s body, be it a question of aborting a child, selling one’s body, or ending one’s OWN life. It’s not for the government to decide, it’s none of their damn business. This has always been church married to state, this is not freedom. If one is truly free they should have total say with regard to their own body, including anything feeding off of it, regardless of what ANOTHER’S religion dictates to THEM. Our government should focus on educating (truly educating, not “dumbing us down”) the people, ensuring that they are instilled with self-esteem (not religion), and making sure that we don’t truly harm other human beings (that aren’t feeding off OUR body), and then get the hell away from us and allow us our natural freedom. Not just the piddly-assed “freedom” they decide we can have.

  12. Hi “Dovelove” — I agree. Unfortunately, it seems to me this problem is going to get much worse, before it gets any better. The Supreme Court is a lifetime position, so simply changing an administration will do nothing to combat this problem. And, the Supreme Court will now been stuffed full of ultra conservative judges for many years to come, this is very problematic.

    Thanks for your comment.
