Dred Scott Returns Only This Time For Women!

I have been arguing that the US is in the midst of a New Civil War—again Abraham Lincoln’s words come to mind—“testing whether this nation so conceived and so dedicated can long endure”.

Here is the proof of my belief.

Remember the Dred Scott case that came before a Supreme Court dedicated to the preservation of slavery in 1857 before the Civil War began in 1860??

Scott had gained his freedom and moved North.

Then when he moved into a slave state this SC under Chief Justice Roger Tany decided he was no longer free!

Recall in 1973 Roe gave women the national right to a safe abortion, a right recinded by the Supreme Court’s June 24, 2022 decision in Dobbs which send this personal women health decision back to the states which most women even in Red States now find highly questionable!

Banning abortion only bans safe abortions!

Now a woman MD is being sued in Indiana for performing an abortion on a woman who was raped! Read about that outrage here.

Now this is one of many reasons why this next election in 2024 becomes the most important in the history of our Republic.

This disgraced Court under Chief Justice Roberts, but greatly guided by Justice Clarence Thomas may next say no to Mifepristone which allows women to have a safe medical abortion in the first trimester in the privacy of their own homes.

Be sure you find a way to view the May 9th CNN Frontline documentary on the history of Clarence Thomas and his wife Ginni. Among many disclosures it makes clear Thomas lied about his relationship with Anita Hill, as Kavanaugh lied about Blasey Ford using the same “high tech lynching” argument Thomas got away with.

In Thomas’ case the Senate nominating committee did not bother to investigate claims of other women Thomas approached!

We better see Congress get this Court to embrace ethical standards that apply to all other Federal Courts, as this religiously zealous majority will be around for decades.
