Schwab: May it please the court; because the rest of us aren't

By Sid Schwab / Herald columnist

Nearly everything that can be said about the U.S. Supreme Court throwing out Roe v. Wade has been said. Nevertheless, some points ought to be reiterated, if for no other reason than to confirm that America is now a theocratic plutocracy. And whereas there are, in theory, things that can be done about it, in practical terms there really aren’t. Theocratic plutocrats have locked it in.

1. Of the six radical-right justices, five were appointed by presidents who lost the popular vote. The one who wasn’t likely got there by lying (because why would Anita Hill risk it all by making it up). So did at least two others, who, in their hearings, said Roe v. Wade was settled law. And it was only by way of Mitch McConnell’s staggering hypocrisy that the most recent two were seated.

2. Until now, no constitutional right, adjudicated and reaffirmed over a period of 50 years or any timespan, had been rescinded. If that’s not judicial activism, nothing is. If the Sacred Six hadn’t had a bought-and-paid-for political-religious agenda, they could have refused to hear the case. But their agenda is why they’re there. (Grammar lesson.)

3. If respectful discussion between people on opposite sides is impossible, both sides might agree that believing the “personhood” of a fertilized egg is indistinguishable from that of a 20-week fetus is religion-based. Until now, there wasn’t a right to impose one’s religion on others.
