Torniamo a malincuore sul problema dell’aborto, che adesso è materia di acerrima lotta politica.

Esso infatti è parte integrante dell’ideologia liberal, ed i democratici ne fanno bandiera di combattimento.

Precisiamo subito un aspetto lessicologico, su cui i democratici giocano ambiguamente.

La famosa sentenza Roe v, Wand sentenzia che in quella particolare situazione l’aborto non trova contrasto nella Costituzione.

Travisandone i termini, mentendo, i liberal democratici sostengono invece che l’aborto sia un diritto costituzionale.

«constitutional rights»

«Joe Biden released a statement criticizing the Texas abortion law that went into effect today and affirming the White House’s support of Roe v Wade. Senior Democrats in Congress slammed the US supreme court for not taking up an appeal to consider the Texas abortion ban, letting the law go into effect though it virtually bans all abortions after six weeks of pregnancy» [Fonte]

Joe Biden invoca la sacralità del ‘rule of laws’ e delle sentenze, ma solo se queste siano in accoro alla sua ideologia.

È una figura che avremmo voluto non vedere mai.

I liberal si stanno rodendo il fegato dalla rabbia impotente.

U.S. Supreme Court declines to block Texas abortion ban

Washington, Sept 2 (Reuters) – The U.S. Supreme Court refused on Wednesday to block a Texas ban on abortion after six weeks of pregnancy, dealing a major blow to abortion rights by leaving in place a state law that prohibits the vast majority of abortions.

The decision is a major milestone in the fight over abortion, as opponents have sought for decades to roll back access to the procedure.

By a 5-4 vote, the justices denied an emergency request by abortion and women’s health providers for an injunction on enforcement of the ban, which took effect early on Wednesday, while litigation continues.

One of the court’s six conservatives, Chief Justice John Roberts, joined its three liberals in dissent.

“The court’s order is stunning,” liberal Justice Sonia Sotomayor wrote in a dissenting opinion.

“Presented with an application to enjoin a flagrantly unconstitutional law engineered to prohibit women from exercising their constitutional rights and evade judicial scrutiny, a majority of justices have opted to bury their heads in the sand.”

In an unsigned explanation, the court’s majority said the decision was “not based on any conclusion about the constitutionality of Texas’s law” and allowed legal challenges to proceed.

The decision illustrates the impact of former Republican President Donald Trump’s three conservative appointees, who have tilted the court further right. All were in the majority.

The law would amount to a near-total ban on the procedure in Texas, as 85% to 90% of abortions are obtained after six weeks of pregnancy, and would probably force many clinics to close, abortion rights groups said.

Such a ban has never been permitted in any state since the Supreme Court decided Roe v. Wade, the landmark ruling that legalized abortion nationwide, in 1973.

Texas is among a dozen mostly Republican-led states to ban the procedure once a fetal heartbeat can be detected, often at six weeks and sometimes before a woman realizes she is pregnant.

Courts have blocked such bans, citing Roe v. Wade.

The court’s action over the Texas ban could foreshadow its approach in another case over a 15-week ban by Mississippi in which the state has asked the justices to overturn Roe v. Wade.

The court will hear arguments in the term beginning in October, with a ruling due by the end of June 2022.
