In an op-ed by former California gubernatorial candidate and radio personality Larry Elder, he makes the case for Roe. V. Wade to be overturned. Here is a snippet from the article:

That leaves eight “conservative states” with only 36 abortion providers between them — an already difficult proposition for any woman seeking an abortion in those states. In six of them — Mississippi, Kentucky, the Dakotas, Missouri and Nebraska — a woman cannot find an abortion provider in 97% to 98% of those states’ counties.

In other words, as it stands now, conservative states reduce abortion to almost nonexistence, so a post-Roe world, at least in those states, changes little.

Despite NOW’s support, regular Americans appear wary of Roe’s scope. Yes, according to a recent CBS poll, 59% of Americans call Roe a “good thing.” But when pressed more specifically, people give answers that change the picture dramatically. Only 25% want abortion on demand — effectively the Roe position. Fourteen percent want abortion permitted with more restrictions; 38% want abortions permitted in cases of rape, incest and to save women’s lives; 15% want abortion permitted only to save women’s lives; and 3% want abortion not permitted at all. When added together, 70% want greater, not fewer, restrictions on abortion.

With a reversal of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court says this: Where the Constitution fails to provide a specific empowerment for the federal government — butt out.

The impression, by most Americans, that the SCOTUS is unbiased and non-political is a LIE – a god-for-nothing goddamed lie! They have ALWAYS been biased and sometimes EXTREMELY political, throughout American history. In addition, they have usurped legal authority they don’t have (according to the Constitution) and never had since the beginning. The idea that only this group of very fallible and limited human beings are the only people in the United States who can read and understand the American Constitutional document is fatuous! Fatuous!! No matter their training, there are loads of Americans who are a LOT smarter than the SCOTUS human beings, and are, at the same time, unbiased.

The GREAT majority of the authority usurped by the court belong to the choices of individual Americans – not ANY part of ANY government in the US.
