    ALBANY - State lawmakers will return to work next week to address the Supreme Court’s ruling striking down a New York law limiting the carrying of concealed firearms, Gov. Hochul announced Friday. The governor signed an order mandating a special legislative session in response to the court’s 6-3 decision doing away with the century-old statute. “The Supreme Court’s reckless and reprehensible decision to strike down New York’s century-old concealed carry law puts lives at risk here in New York,” Hochul said in a statement. “My number one priority as governor will always be to keep New Yorkers safe.” The Supreme...
  • Sen. Susan Collins: Abortion ruling ‘inconsistent’ with what Gorsuch, Kavanaugh told me

    Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) on Friday said conservative Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch misled her about their views on the importance of Supreme Court precedent during their confirmation proceedings in 2017 and 2018. Collins, who voted to confirm then-President Trump’s first two conservative nominees to the court despite her support for abortion rights, has said she believed those justices would hold up important precedents such as Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 decision that established a constitutional right to abortion. A court majority that included Kavanaugh and Gorsuch struck down that right on Friday. “This decision is inconsistent with...

    With the U.S. Supreme Court having overturned Roe v. Wade Friday, its landmark and controversial 1973 decision that established a core federal right to have an abortion, Pennsylvania’s governor’s race would seem to be a perfect referendum on the question - if, that is, there weren’t so many other issues. In this corner, you have Republican nominee Doug Mastriano, a state Senator from Franklin County who supports rolling back of Pennsylvania’s current abortion law to at least the so-called heartbeat threshold, which medical authorities have said essentially means a ban on abortions after about six weeks of pregnancy. Mastriano has...
  • Now the Left turns on RBG: Radicals point blame at late Supreme Court judge for DYING in 2020 as they say it paved way for Amy Coney Barrett

    Liberal Twitter users have taken to the platform to blast the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg following the court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade on Friday. While a number of journalist lay the blame at former President Trump who got to appoint three conservative justices during his time in the White House, things took a surprising turn when attention shifted to RBG. Several users saw it fit to blame the late Supreme Court Justice for the court's landmark decision on abortion with some suggesting that had she decided to step down sooner while President Obama was in...

    The end of Roe v. Wade is perhaps the greatest political and cultural event in a generation. It will change American politics forever, and — what’s more important — it will save the lives of countless unborn children. The Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs is a great victory for the U.S. Constitution, for the American people, and for justice and truth and the common good. It is also a turning point. We should now expect Democrats and the left to call more explicitly for violence, initially against places like crisis pregnancy centers and Catholic churches, as we have already seen,...

    n a 6-3 decision reflecting the sharp partisan divide on the nation’s highest court, the Supreme Court struck down New York’s century old gun law against conceal carry on Thursday. New Yorkers and residents of a handful of other states and Washington D.C.—which had more strictly regulated who can have a conceal-carry permit—must now accept the type of laws popular in Texas and other red states. The decision was hardly a surprise to court watchers, but the opinion is nonetheless troubling on many levels. The fact that this opinion was written by Justice Clarence Thomas, an originalist so rigid in...

    Former President Donald Trump said Friday that the Supreme Court overturned the Roe v. Wade decision establishing a national right to abortion because he was able to install three nominees on the bench during his term in office. Mr. Trump called the ruling “the biggest win for life in a generation” and said it was “only made possible because I delivered everything as promised.” “I did not cave to the Radical Left Democrats, their partners in the Fake News Media, or the RINOs who are likewise the true, but silent, enemy of the people,” the former GOP president said in...

    HARRISBURG, Pa. — Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf has reacted to the United States Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. Video above: Wolf vows to protect abortion access ahead of court's decision Here is the governor's full statement: "First and most importantly, it is critical that everyone understands that abortion services are available and unharmed in Pennsylvania by today’s Supreme Court action. Providers may still provide reproductive health care services and patients should continue the health care plan they’ve developed with their physicians. "Nonetheless, I am deeply disappointed in today’s Supreme Court opinion and the impact this decision will...

    Several groups of pro-abortion rights activists are planning to protest outside the home of Justice Clarence Thomas and his wife Ginni on Friday evening, just hours after the Supreme Court announced its decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. The protest outside Thomas’s home in Virginia is the first of several demonstrations planned by a hodgepodge of groups including Ruth Sent Us, Our Rights D.C., and Shut Down D.C. “Enraged? Devastated? Pissed the f*** off?” Our Rights D.C. tweeted. “So are we.” The other planned protests for the weekend are targeted at the homes of Justices Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett,...

    In the absence of a serious foreign policy and an economic plan not involving massive tariffs – and in the absence of a rational and decent candidate – pro-Trump advocates have fallen back on one argument and one argument only: he’ll be better for the Supreme Court. --- Hillary’s justices will cripple Constitutional interpretation on religious freedom, gun rights, and freedom of speech, among other crucial issues. --- There is only one problem: there is no shot – zero shot – that Trump will appoint a conservative.

    Today the United States Supreme Court ruled that “the Constitution does not confer a right to abortion,” overruling Roe v. Wade (1973). The decision will “return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives … to be resolved like most important questions in our democracy: by citizens trying to persuade one another and then voting.” In the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a five Justice majority of the Supreme Court overruled both Roe and the 1992 decision Planned Parenthood v. Casey.[1] The inherent value of human life is revealed in the Scriptures, and this biblical commitment...

    Following the historic overturning of Roe v. Wade, clinics in multiple states have reportedly ceased performing abortions "immediately." However, Democrat-run states like New York won't change post-Roe. Here's where abortion is banned now and what Democratic strongholds will still be an uphill battle for the pro-life movement: NPR national correspondent Sarah McCammon reported Friday she heard from some clinic sources in Louisiana, Kentucky, Texas, and Missouri that are halting abortions "immediately" in response to the Dobbs decision. McCammon also told Planned Parenthood has stopped carrying out abortions in Arkansas. Louisiana Abortion is illegal in Louisiana as of Friday after the...

    On Thursday morning the Supreme Court ruled 6-3 to strike down restrictive "may issue" concealed carry laws in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen. Justice Clarence Thomas wrote the majority opinion and explained how the Second Amendment is not a second-class right. The arguments made by the dissenting justices were wildly irrelevant from the issue of constitutionality and current law, prompting Justice Samuel Alito to file a separate, concurring opinion destroying their claims. He also took issue with their ignorance and arrogance surrounding the facts of lawful gun ownership vs. criminality. (Take a look, bolding is mine)

The Lennon Pregnancy Center in Dearborn Heights, Michigan, was vandalized sometime between Sunday night and Monday morning. Gary Hillebrand, the center’s president, told CNA Tuesday that 12 of the clinic's front windows were smashed. Four glass doors were smashed as well, he said.

  • Abortion Policy in the Absence of Roe

    Changes to the makeup of the U.S. Supreme Court in 2018 raise the possibility that Roe v. Wade could be severely undermined—or even overturned—essentially leaving the legality of abortion to individual states. A reversal of Roe could establish a legal path for states’ pre-1973 abortion bans, as well as currently unenforced post-1973 bans, to take effect. Many state lawmakers continue to consider and enact abortion bans that fly in the face of constitutional standards and Roe’s precedent in anticipation of an eventual lawsuit on such a ban coming before a Supreme Court hostile to abortion rights. Some bans prohibit abortion...
