How is it that no one is arguing about the supreme court ruling on Texan abortion laws?

Hello joe:

Look.. I'm fine with it.. My state is going to pass a law designed after the Texas law, that outlaws guns... If abortion is not a Constitutional right, then gun ownership isn't either..

Blasphemy ;)

I guess I'll have to switch to the other side once abortion becomes illegal in the entire U.S. ;)

How is it that no one is arguing about the supreme court ruling on Texan abortion law

Hello Joe:

Ok, you wanted something, I'll give you something..

With this ruling,"the Constitution itself becomes a solemn mockery.”

I didn't say that.. The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court said that. Truly, the Texas abortion law was designed so that it would never have to go under judicial review.. And, 6 members of the Supreme Court agreed with it, thereby making their jobs irrelevant.

The Chief Justice goes on, "the clear purpose and actual effect of S. B. 8 has been to nullify this Court’s rulings. It is, however, a basic principle that the Constitution is the fundamental and paramount law of the nation, and it is emphatically the province and duty of the judicial department to say what the law is. Indeed, if the legislatures of the several states may, at will, annul the judgments of the courts of the United States, and destroy the rights acquired under those judgments, the constitution itself becomes a solemn mockery. It's the role of the Supreme Court in our constitutional system that is at stake."

That's why states can now outlaw guns using this very same vigilante system of governance, instead of the courts..

How's that???

Abortion is not a constitutional right. The right to bear arms is a constitutional right. Having said that..., 6 weeks is a little tight ;)

Hello joe:

Nahhh... You're confusing a right in the Bill of Rights, with a right that resulted from a court decision..

Look.. Miranda is NOT mentioned in the Constitution... Yet, it's a right, just as powerful and as strong as ANY Constitutional right..

Or, do you think there's a hierarchy of rights, where some rights carry more weight than other rights?? Dude! A RIGHT is like being pregnant.. You have it, or you don't. There are no gradations of rights.

You're not saying are you, that the ONLY rights we have are those in the Bill of Rights, and the ONLY way to get a new right, like abortion, is to amend the Constitution??? I think you ARE saying that. But, that ain't how it works.
