Nail In Coffin? Facing Toughest Race Yet, Collins Forced To Answer For Kavanaugh Vote

This article is part of TPM Cafe, TPM’s home for opinion and news analysis.  During the nomination fight, Sen. Susan Collins (R) bought into now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s Roe v. Wade hedging, publicly asserting she believed Kavanaugh when he said he respected precedent.  But in dissenting with the decision issued on Monday regarding a Louisiana law restricting access to abortion, Kavanaugh stood against the four-year-old precedent the court established on a similar case in Texas. ...

With Roberts’ Assist, SCOTUS Strikes Down Restrictive Louisiana Abortion Law

On Monday, the Supreme Court delivered a win for abortion rights activists by striking down a clinic restriction law out of Louisiana. It was a five to four decision, with Chief Justice John Roberts joining the liberals in a concurring decision.  Justice Stephen Breyer, writing for the majority, called the law “almost word-for-word identical” to a Texas law the Court struck down in 2016. The Court found that that “the law offers no significant health benefit” and that it will “make it im...

Roberts Fights Off Conservatives To Preserve Abortion Rights…For Now

The Supreme Court on Monday struck down an abortion clinic restriction law out of Louisiana. It was a 5–4 decision, with Chief Justice John Roberts joining the liberals in a concurring decision — and saying precedent required him to do so. The Court had clear precedent to work with: just four years ago, it overturned a law out of Texas in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt. Both laws centered on admitting privileges for doctors at nearby hospitals. Justice Stephen Breyer, writing for ...

Unoriginal Joke (Part III): Living Constitutionalism and Social Progress

Charles Barzun In the last   Part   of this series, I suggested that the essential nugget at the heart of “living constitutionalism” is the idea that part of what grounds the constitution’s authority for us is its capacity to adapt (i.e., to respond appropriately) to changing circumstances. I called this the   adaptability claim. Different versions of living constitutionalism fill out the adaptability claim in different ways, for different reasons.     But in my view, one quite tra...

The Veggie Tale Guy Checks Eric Metaxas on Bonhoeffer

This tweet from Veggie Tale creator Phil Vischer is wise and powerful. Eric, I love you, but your own book talks about Bonhoeffer's deep concern for the plight of blacks in America. I'm pretty sure if he showed up right now he'd be talking about more than just abortion and the "evil left." https://t.co/oBM7wDbOd8 — Phil Vischer (@philvischer) June 7, 2020 Eric Metaxas is a shadow of his former self and his friends know it.

Senate Democrats’ Mindless ‘Report’ on the Judiciary

NRPLUS MEMBER ARTICLE T hree months ago, Senator Chuck Schumer stood outside the Supreme Court building and warned Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh that they would “pay the price” and would “not know what hit” them if they upheld a Louisiana law requiring abortion clinics to have admitting privileges at a local hospital. Last week, that same Chuck Schumer and two other Democratic senators released a 54-page broadside against their Republican colleagues titled “Captured Courts: The GOP’s Big Money ...

Judge Blocks Missouri Health Dept. from Shuttering State’s Only Remaining Planned Parenthood

A state judge on Friday declared that Missouri's sole remaining Planned Parenthood clinic will be allowed to remain open, ruling that the health department was in error not to renew the license of the St. Louis clinic.“Planned Parenthood has demonstrated that it provides safe and legal abortion care. In over 4,000 abortions provided since 2018, the Department has only identified two causes to deny its license,” Missouri Administrative Hearing Commissioner Sreenivasa Rao Dandamudi wrote in hi...

AKA Jane Roe and the Human Cost of Homophobia

The recently released documentary, AKA Jane Roe, is generating keen interest for its (spoiler alert!)   “deathbed confession” by Norma McCorvey, a/k/a Jane Roe in Roe v. Wade(1973), that her apparent conversion in 1995 from supporting abortion rights to born-again Christianity and the pro-life/anti-abortion cause was not genuine, but “all an act.”   McCorvey reveals (in words that may bring the lyrics of Bob Seger’s “Night Moves” to mind) that she used them and they used her:   “I took their ...

Norma "Roe v. Wade" McCorvey was paid by conservatives to pretend to turn against abortion

Norma McCorvey was famous as the plaintiff in Roe v. Wade, the case that led the Supreme Court of the United States of America to rule abortion a constitutional right. In later life, McCorvey became an anti-abortion campaigner. Shortly before her death, she admitted it was a paid performance: “It was all an act. I did it well too. I am a good actress.” When Norma McCorvey, the anonymous plaintiff in the landmark Roe vs. Wade case, came out against abortion in 1995, it stunned the world and repre...

Can U.S. homegrown sorghum help the ag industry get through Covid-19?

It’s been only two years since the Environmental Protection Agency approved sorghum oil as an eligible feedstock under the Renewable Fuel Standard, but a lot has happened since then. The EPA’s announcement marked a significant step toward leveling the playing field for ethanol plants extracting oil from sorghum and provides new market access for the crop, but there’s more to the story. In today’s Digest, how sorghum is becoming a growing feedstock for a rapidly changing world, how we aren’t in ...

A Florida man who drank a bottle of wine that he was unable to pay for at a Winn-Dixie then fled the store, ran a red light and caused a hit-and-run crash all with an 11-year-old girl in tow, according to the DeLand Police Department. Sounds legit: The suspect denied driving the vehicle and instead pointed the blame at an unknown man named “John,” but a woman and an 11-year-old girl who were in the black Hyundai let officers know that Roe was indeed behind the wheel, the report said.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer Says He Regrets Remarks About Supreme Court Justices

(WASHINGTON) — Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said Thursday that he “should not have used the words I used” when he declared at a rally in front of the Supreme Court that two justices would “pay the price” for their decision in an abortion case. Republicans chastised Schumer for the remark and Chief Justice John Roberts in a rare rebuke said the words were “inappropriate” and “dangerous.” Speaking on the Senate floor Thursday, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., called Schumer’s...

SCOTUS Liberals Take Last Stand In The Face Of Almost Certain Abortion Case Defeat

The liberal contingent of the Supreme Court sounded off during Wednesday’s oral arguments about the legality of Louisiana’s abortion regulation law, which is nearly identical to a Texas law the court struck down two years ago. What’s changed since then is the composition of the Court, which has shifted to the right since Justice Anthony Kennedy’s 2018 departure. Kennedy had joined the liberals in ruling against the Texas law in the 2016 case Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt.  But Wedn...
