Donald Trump‘s presidency was impactful in many ways. His most long lasting actions, though, might be in the courts. Not only did he place 3 Conservative justices on the Supreme Court, he appointed Republican judges all over the United States.
Jen Psaki, the White House press secretary, said President Joe Biden and his administration remain “committed to codifying” Roe v. Wade regardless of the outcome of an upcoming Supreme Court case that could undermine the landmark abortion rights legislation.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein asked Amy Coney Barrett if she thought Roe v. Wade was wrongly decided, and Trump’s SCOTUS nominee refused to answer.
Feinstein asked, “On something that is really a major cause with a major effect on over half of the population of this country who are women, after all, it’s distressing not to get a straight answer. So let me try again. Do you agree with Justice Scalia’s view that Roe was wrongly decided?”
President Donald Trump, whose testing positive for coronavirus has dominated the headlines over the last week, sought to bring attention back to a possible Supreme Court battle between Democrats and Republicans after his rival, Democrat Joe Biden, said he would advance legislation to protect Roe v. Wade, the landmark ruling that permits women to have abortions if they choose.
Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Amy Coney Barrett, hid her participation in an ad calling for the overturn of Roe v. Wade.
On this day of the 2020 Women’s March, masses of people across the nation will gather and march to call for recognizing the human rights of women as a necessary element of a truly just and equal society for all.
On Wednesday U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced that he is retiring effective July 31. Concerning the implications of Kennedy’s retirement, we wrote yesterday:
“Kennedy’s retirement effective essentially immediately means that the dysfunctional president and dysfunctional Republican-led Senate have to hustle to get a Supreme Court justice confirmed before the next term begins in October. Kennedy was a Reagan appointee, so his replacement won’t change the makeup of the court, but it will cement a 5-4 conservative majority for the foreseeable future.”
“We declare the reversal of the decree of ’73, Roe v Wade … We declare the reversal of Roe v. Wade. The powers of Nazgul, witchcraft and death are being reversed now over this nation.”
It remains to be seen what Donald Trump will do on a national scale as president.

Over the course of the last several years no small number of pundits and commentators have trumpeted the demise of the religious right and their masters at the Vatican. As the recent election appeared to look bleak for Trump, and by extension the Republican Party and evangelical movement, it did appear to many that Trump would take down the religious right along with the Republican Party. Of course none of that transpired as predicted. Instead, as this column warned, the religious right turned out in force to increase their power and authority over government and even if the results were different, the religious right would have transformed an electoral defeat into a new and improved persecution complex that a sympathetic Republican majority would take advantage of.
These leaders came together to “guide their congregations’ prayers toward protecting a woman’s right to access an abortion.”
Ending Roe v Wade, a law that protects women from being discovered would also backfire and end the privacy of potential firearm owners
Marco Rubio continues the Republican narrative that the Bible they haven't read trumps the Constitution they haven't read
Asked in Iowa how he could stop abortion when it's perfectly legal, Huckabee said, "We'll see, if I get to be president."
This time around, the subject is once again abortion and instead of New York, Missouri Satanists are assisting a woman seeking a religious exemption from Missouri's religious 72-hour abortion waiting period because the Christian law violates the Satanist's "deeply held beliefs about bodily autonomy;" something Christian fanatics cannot comprehend or countenance for any woman.
Today is the anniversary of the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade ruling giving women the right to choose when they give birth and, like every year for over two decades, religious fanatics will protest the landmark decision. Their contention is that patriarchs in Catholic Church, not women, own the right to make reproductive choices for American women.
Now, the Republicans' first order of business with Mitch McConnell sharing Senate Majority Leader duties with Ted Cruz is precisely what they did when they won the House majority in 2010; attack women's right to choose when they give birth.
The claim that President Obama campaigned, and revels, in being "the abortion President" is driven by racism, evangelical fanaticism, and an abject ignorance of statistics.
The fanatical Christian-right is targeting Girl Scout USA's annual cookie sales for a boycott because the group listed Wendy Davis as an incredible woman of the year.
