U.S. Supreme Court Poised To Issue Major Abortion Ruling


The U.S. Supreme Court is due on Monday to issue its first major abortion ruling since 2007 against a backdrop of unremitting divisions among Americans on the issue and a decades-long decline in the rate at which women terminate pregnancies.

      Sadly it did not turn out that way.

      • Another Day, another battle. In the end we will have victory

  • Justice Thomas Had this to say

    Today’s decision will prompt some to claim victory, just
    as it will stiffen opponents’ will to object. But the entire
    Nation has lost something essential. The majority’s embrace
    of a jurisprudence of rights-specific exceptions and
    balancing tests is “a regrettable concession of defeat—an
    acknowledgement that we have passed the point where
    ‘law,’ properly speaking, has any further application.”

    So standards are now a ‘hardship’… BOLLICKS
