SCOTUS Gets it Right, Again!

I wrote last week that we should celebrate every small victory from the Supreme Court.

That still applies, but when the Court gets something right twice in less than a month, something good might be happening.

I wouldn’t get your hopes up. SCOTUS will always let you down in the end, but two correct majority opinions will get your blood pumping.

The Court refused to block a Texas anti-abortion bill. This was the right thing to do.

We can debate the merits of the bill, but Roe v. Wade has always been a bad decision. The general government does not have the authority to legislate for the States on this issue. We also have to remember that the general government has NEVER legislated on the issue. Roe v. Wade blocked States from passing laws on abortion.

That is not a power denied by Article I, Section 10.

In other words, the entire premise of the 1973 decision has been incorrect for nearly 50 years.

This opens a number of interesting scenarios, including–if the left had guts–blue State secession.

That has about a .000000000000000001 chance of happening, but one can dream.

There are more likely outcomes, and I discuss these in episode 506 of The Brion McClanahan Show.
