Supreme Court sides with Planned Parenthood in funding fight [Roberts, Kavanuagh join libs]
CNN ^ | 12/10/2018 | Ariane De Vogue

Posted on 12/10/2018 7:35:37 AM PST by GIdget2004

The Supreme Court Monday rebuffed efforts by states to block funding to Planned Parenthood.

It left in place two lower court opinions that said that states violate federal law when they terminate Medicaid contracts with Planned Parenthood affiliates who offer preventive care for low income women.

It would have taken four justices to agree to hear the issue, and only three conservative justices -- Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch -- voted to hear the case.

Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh appeared to side with the court's liberals in not taking up the case -- showing an effort to avoid high-profile abortion-related issues for now.

Roberts and Kavanaugh "likely have serious objections," said Steve Vladeck, CNN Supreme Court analyst and professor at the University of Texas School of Law. "But such votes seem to be a signal that they would rather avoid contentious, high-profile disputes for now, at least where possible."

The case concerned whether states can block Medicaid funds from Planned Parenthood affiliates that provide such women with annual health screens, contraceptive coverage and cancer screening.

Who ever claims they didn’t know this would happen is foolish.

That doesn’t even make sense. And what it’s trying to say is probably fake.

So states can no longer say how to run them getting more like a banana republic every day.
Remember Obamacare the forced government insurance program,
They need a sign on the building We BE The Power

Not necessarily, it may be it was a weak case and before they take on something it needs to stand a good chance of winning and meaning something.

“preventitive care for low income women”

Translation: Black baby Holocaust

The only way to get past the evil on the Supreme Court is to have a Constitutional Amendment.

NOT abortion-related. Remember even candidate Trump said PP “does some good” (screeening, etc) and only wanted to defund abortions.

*********************************
Ahh....no. More likely WISELY waiting for an additional conservative Justice to be appointed. Remember, Roberts is “shaky” and possubly compromised.

I'm not sure I completely understand, but it seems over the years, so many amendments and whatevers have destroyed the simplicity of the wording in the Constitution that, a true Constitutionist is locked INTO the Law and how to read it.

At least I HOPE that's what has happened.

This wasn’t a decision of any kind. This was merely a vote on certiorari. Idiot reporters get this wrong all the time.

Read Maryland v. Baltimore Radio Show, Inc., 338 U.S. 912 (1950), where the court outlines that a denial is not a decision on the merits and Such a denial indicates nothing about the merits or demerits of a case.
