What I cannot understand is why the left is so adamant that it be able to murder the unborn with impunity. And to call this a "right" is absolutely bonkers.

I think Roe v Wade should be overturned because it was decided on a utterly defective argument. The "right to privacy" was violated by banning abortions? What? Crazy much??

Apply this crazy leftist logic to any other crime : "who I murder in the privacy of my own home is MY business, not the governments".

Do we want that to be the law of the land regarding homicide?

Or how about "Who I rape in the privacy of my own home is MY business not the governments".

It just gets nuttier and nuttier. This is the result when you have a judicial decision based on defective reasoning. You get nutball results and protections for crimes that are inexcusable no matter if they are conducted privately or not.

"The bombs I build in my own home are nobody's business but my own!"

Restoring the SCOTUS to its proper role and function is what's most important. If that means reversing every decision that was arrived at through judicial activism, then so be it. That's what has got to happen.
Thats just pure crazy. Reverse every decision arrived at through judicial activism? The Supreme Court is the very definition of judicial activism by its very nature.

Trump supporter here, I could not care less on either of the rulings as specified by the topic Although each is dumb, it is settled law in my view.

By the way, being "not interested" is not the same as "I do not support efforts to overturn those rulings." All that means, is that Republicans can continue their endeavor to overturn abortion and gay marriage rulings and won't lose a vote from his base.

Now, if Trump supporters said abortion and gay marriage is already settled, leave it alone now - that would be a different story. But the people that have answered mostly sound indifferent. That is just as good as supporting whatever your party does.

I'm just wondering if people realize the elite left has their share of religious fanatics as well, people that make the worst fundy Christians seem like agnostics.

Why ask the question if you won't believe the answers?
I can tell you why. This is not a real thread questioning real people. It's designed to pi$$ off Democrat voters and swing people who are independent but might support Roe v. Wade. It's so obvious when you see these inflammatory thread titles. I fully believe people are paid to go around and post this nonsense all over message boards.

Texas is trying to make abortions as tough as possible. If the right wing goes the way of Texas, women might as well be property.

I guess you missed my post (first page, second post) where I say I do "not support reversing these."

And I referenced that President Trump himself has said this is settled law.

Here it is, for your convenience:

"Trump supporter here and NO to your questions, I do not support reversing those.

Furthermore, although President Trump is anti-abortion, he considers abortion and gay marriage to be "settled law". Trump is not an evangelical conservative. I believe your premise is flawed."

BTW my reasons are different than most. I am still against abortion and I still believe marriage is a sacrament between a man and a woman. I just don't think it's the government's business.

"At any cost"


this is how the left does things. take a position they oppose then attach their own spin with a radical evil connotation.


I oppose the majority of abortion. I oppose nothing in the political realm "at any cost". That is disgusting to suggest.
