It’s hard to decide which outcome we’d rather have. The outrage in some states generated by a ‘sweeping decision’ might backfire on Dems just as Roe Vs. Wade has. We’re winning that one after all these years. North Dakota down. 49 more to go.
Why bother to impose it when the masses are quickly losing their grasp on the truth? No need to upset people when it’s just a matter of time and enough decay.
Roe v Wade certainly corroded the legitimacy of the Supreme Court and the Constitution. The Supreme Court as an institution made possible the killing of 40 million human lives. What’s more it has proclaimed over and over again that abortion, the intentional killing of human life is a “constitutional” right. Well how can a decent person respect such an institution and how can a person of conscience take an oath to uphold and defend a constitution that permits such an atrocity? If they make gay marriage a “constitutional right”, more people will come to feel this way.
Maybe the Democrats are counting on using the issue in national campaigns in 2014. Can’t dangle a carrot if the issue has already been settled by judicial fiat.
Or maybe they are afraid of blowback as the 2014 elections loom.
