(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- And another county heard from.
After last week’s leak of Justice Samuel Alito’s draft opinion on Dobbs, former President Barack Obama and his bitter half, Michelle, released a statement ginning up panic and making unsubstantiated claims about what overturning Roe v. Wade would mean for the country.
Not since Bill Murray warned in “Ghostbusters” of “human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria” has there been so many over-the-top, melodramatic portents of gloom.
According to the Obamas, overturning Roe would reverse “nearly 50 years of precedent” as if that’s always a bad thing.
The “separate but equal” Plessy v. Ferguson ruling of 1986 that upheld segregation was “precedent” for longer than that before it was finally overturned.
The Obamas also seemed to believe that if the Supreme Court overturns Roe, it would effectively overturn the 14th Amendment to the Constitution. That’s nonsense, of course. But since the Obamas are smart enough to know that the majority of Americans favor restrictions on abortion, they have to pretend that overturning Roe v. Wade would also threaten interracial marriages, gay marriage, and legal contraception.
(“Dogs and cats living together! Mass hysteria!”)
This is how ridiculous the arguments over the last week have been.
Like the rest of the Democrats, the Obamas are claiming that Roe v. Wade granted women a “constitutional right” to abortion. You’d think a so-called “Constitutional scholar” like Barack Obama would know that the Supreme Court doesn’t have the power to create constitutional rights.
The Obamas, neither of whom have likely read the draft opinion, claimed that Scalia’s opinion forces “folks” to give up “constitutionally recognized interest in what happens to their body once they get pregnant.”
They asked their supporters to give a thought to the hundreds of thousands of women who abort their babies every year, claiming they “deserve the dignity and freedom” to choose abortion.
No thought for the hundreds of thousands of unborn babies whose lives were snuffed out by those abortions. The Obamas don’t seem to care about their dignity, freedom, or life.
