“Catholic” Kennedy Strikes Again as Supreme Court Overturns Texas Abortion Restrictions June 27, 2016

“Catholic” Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy- for the umpteenth time – cast the deciding vote on a matter deciding issues gravely against the moral order yet again today.  Kennedy voted in favor of overturning Texas’ extremely successful 2013 abortion restrictions, restrictions that had led to the closure of about 60% of the state’s mills.  Thus, it is expected that many mills will re-open, or new ones start up, and abortion will be far more available in Texas than it had been for the past 3 years.  Kennedy’s ruling overturned a lower-court verdict by the 5th Circuit finding the provisions of 2013’s House Bill 2 to be constitutional.  Just as in Casey vs. Planned Parenthood, Kennedy will go to his death with the blood of millions on his soft, manicured hands.

But I’m certain he’ll remain a “Catholic in good standing” and continue to receive the feting from high prelates from one end of this land to the other.  He’ll probably even receive the Blessed Sacrament from the hand of Cardinal Burke himself, as he already has in the past.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court struck down Texas’ widely replicated regulation of abortion clinics Monday in the court’s biggest abortion case in nearly a quarter century.

The justices voted 5-3 in favor of Texas clinics that had argued the regulations were only a veiled attempt to make it harder for women to get abortions in the nation’s second-most populous state.

Justice Stephen Breyer’s majority opinion for the court held that the regulations are medically unnecessary and unconstitutionally limit a woman’s right to an abortion. [thanks for letting us know they are medically unnecessary, Doctor Breyer]

Texas had argued that its 2013 law and subsequent regulations were needed to protect women’s health. The rules required doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals and forced clinics to meet hospital-like standards for outpatient surgery.

Breyer wrote that “the surgical-center requirement, like the admitting privileges requirement, provides few, if any, health benefits for women, poses a substantial obstacle to women seeking abortions and constitutes an ‘undue burden’ on their constitutional right to do so.” [So the entire bill has pretty much been struck down, which had been doing so much good. You think Breyer based his judgment on real medical evidence, or liberal medical opinion?]

Justices Anthony Kennedy, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan joined Breyer. [Because of course they did. It’s only ever a question which way a “conservative” justice will approach, it’s never, ever a question how a leftist democrat-appointed one will]

……..Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas dissented. [For all the good in the world it did them]

………Abortion providers said the rules would have cut the number of abortion clinics in Texas by three-fourths if they had been allowed to take full effect.

When then-Gov. Rick Perry signed the law in 2013, there were about 40 clinics throughout the state. That number dropped to under 20 and would have been cut in half again if the law had taken full effect, the clinics said.

Texas passed a broad bill  imposing several abortion restrictions in 2013 [because this was the plain will of the people]. Texas clinics sued immediately to block it, contending it impermissibly interfered with a woman’s constitutional right to an abortion. [See – You have no constitutional right to a firearm, in spite of what the 2nd Amendment plainly says, but women have a “constitutional right” to murder their children, because it’s absolutely nowhere in the document, but “emanating from the penumbras”] The clinics won several favorable rulings in a federal district court [in front of a leftist judge in Austin] Texas. But each time, the New Orleans-based 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals sided with the state, at first allowing challenged provisions to take effect and then upholding the law with only slight exceptions.

Excuse me, but what the heck is the point of “democracy” when one unelected lawyer can totally obviate the will of a large majority of citizens?  The federal courts have become the prime means by which the amoral anti-Christian agenda of the sexular pagan leftists has been imposed on this country, often against the will of the people.  One man basically has gotten to decide whether millions of people would live, or die.  More and more, we appear ruled by an unelected, unaccountable oligarchy that privileges the state-sanctioned killing of children above all else.

A bit of context on the Texas bill might be helpful.  It was written as the Kermit Gosnell murder-house case was coming to light.  Gosnell’s mill was a horror show of filthy conditions and botched procedures, with many dying as a result.  So, increasing health and safety requirements for abortion mills was both timely and sensical.

Abortion and porn: the only industries the left doesn’t want to regulate to death, probably because they avail themselves of them so often.

When, oh when, will Anthony Kennedy finally be excommunicated, or at least threatened with it, for all the manifest evil he has done?

He will undergo unimaginable suffering in Hell.

Kennedy is ex-communicated. It’s just that the Church has not yet formally recognized it.

I take it Soda Mayor is not Catholic, or did you not focus on her because she is a Demoncrat appointee?

It preserved their souls from a mortal sin – that’s a lot of good even if it didn’t have political clout in this world.

This is just another reminder that unless Trump is elected we will have more and more decisions like this when Hilary nominates the justices.

That’s why I said “in the world!”

Agree. I view this election as not so much the selection of the next president as the selection of Scalia’s replacement. We can survive four years of Trump. We can’t survive decades of a justice chosen by Hillary.

Although Scalia’s vote would not have changed the outcome.

Peter - June 28, 2016

Excellent point. But if a leftist judge dies in the next four years, we are better off with DT than HRC.

Tantumblogo - June 28, 2016

Yes, Scalia’s presence probably would not have made a difference. However, he was a very influential member of the court and probably its best logician and framer of arguments. Unfortunately, Kennedy has proved himself over decades to be so radically committed to unconstrained abortion that I don’t think he could ever be swayed to limit it in any major way.

At those high levels of power, everyone who is not a committed conservative is a leftist. There are no moderates on cultural/social matters.

I am utterly confident that Cdl. Donald Wuerl will be as stalwart in refusing the Host to Kennedy as he has been in refusing it to Creepy Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi. I fear that Kennedy will have to use all of his legal acumen when he appears at a Higher Court.

From Rod Dreher’s post today: “One does wonder at what point in the future Americans in certain parts of the country will have had enough of this kind of thing, and will spark a constitutional crisis. If Trump is elected president, I expect California to do this. But at some point, I don’t know when, a liberal president or Supreme Court is going to trigger this from a state like Texas. Increasingly, I can’t say this is going to be a bad thing. When you realize how rigged the game is, you wonder why we play.”

I’m reading this kind of thing more often, and I’m starting to believe it’s going to happen – and I think it will be Texas where it will happen, in our lifetimes. The last hope for the United States may well be the breakup of the United States. Who would have thought it?

Another reminder that we live under judicial tyranny.

There’s a saying: “where the heck are we going and why are we in this hand-basket?!” Anybody else feeling that way right now?
