Why the Supreme Court's ruling could be worse for pro-lifers than you think

(Worthy News) - This week's Supreme Court decision on abortion was a huge setback for the pro-life movement. It is possible things are about to get much worse.

Not only did the justices reject the clinic regulations that represented a promising pro-life strategy for curbing legal access to abortion while demonstrating (pro-choice critics would say feigning) concern for women's health. They did so by a 5-3 margin, meaning the pro-life side would have lost even if Justice Antonin Scalia were still alive.

If Scalia is replaced by a liberal, that suggests a 6-3 majority that is at least broadly sympathetic to the abortion rights regime installed by Roe v. Wade. Roe itself is now 43 years old. For perspective, that's at least a decade less entrenched than many of the liberal Warren Court precedents when the Senate voted down Robert Bork in 1987. [ Source ]

  1. I think it's about time that our state governors told SCOTUS that we don't have to abide by rulings that we don't agree with.........OR..........all rulings of SCOTUS have to be approved by the State Supreme Court.
    We're sick and tired of Obama's homosexual and liberal judges.
