The winning just keeps coming—first Elon Musk’s Twitter acquisition, which is a major victory for free speech; now, what appears to be the overturning of Roe v. Wade (1973), one of the most egregiously unconstitutional Supreme Court rulings ever made.
Conservatives have fought for nearly fifty years for this very outcome. I did not think it would happen in my lifetime—or ever—given the extreme leftward drift of the country.
But elections matter, and this likely ruling demonstrates why. All of those conservatives who reluctantly voted for Donald Trump because of the prospect of his nominating constitutionalists to the bench have been vindicated, as have those who supported Trump from the get-go: his Supreme Court nominations clinched the reversal of this terrible, destructive ruling.
(I note with some degree of amused irony that it was the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s stubborn refusal to vacate the bench that made it possible for President Trump to replace her with conservative Justice Amy Coney Barrett; seeing how feminists glorify “RBG” as the protector of their “right” to murder children, it was her tight grip on her SCOTUS seat that, ultimately, doomed Roe to the ash bin of history.)
The social media backlash from disenchanted floozies has been ludicrous. One friend on Facebook even argued that abortions are a form of mental health treatment, as they spare would-be mothers from the struggles of postpartum depression.
But even ladies who I thought weren’t so hung up on a fictitious constitutional “right” to abortion have been bemoaning the end of their “reproductive freedom” or what not. The “abortion is mental health treatment” girl also bemoaned conservatives’ desire to “control” women. I don’t want to control anyone, but I don’t want murder to be legal.
Regardless, that hysteria is grounded in constitutional ignorance and the terrifying normalization of infanticide over the past fifty years. As I’ve patiently explained to many hysterical women over the past week, overturning Roe just means that the debate over abortion returns to the people and the States. Now, instead of one imaginary constitutional “right”—note that the Constitution is completely silent on the issue of abortion, as it is on almost everything, leaving it up to the people to decide through their State legislatures—there will be fifty different State level policies. Some States will put loads of restrictions on it (though I doubt any State will completely ban it); other States will probably allow two-year olds to be murdered if they prove to be too much of a nuisance.
What the reversal of Roe is, then, is not just a major victory for the life of the unborn—it’s a victory for federalism. It might also mean that feminist floozies will have to exercise a little more self-control—or move to California.
It also marks an important moment of spiritual redemption for the United States—I hope!
