As GOP Collects Pro-Life Court Wins, Liberals Turn Violent

Leading up to the impending U.S. Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Womens Health Organization, which will decide whether all pre-viability prohibitions on elective abortions are unconstitutional, Republicans keep winning in the courts while liberals resort to violence. 

One of these Republican wins happened today in the Iowa Supreme Court, which held that abortion "rights" are not protected by the state constitution, a move that paves the way for lawmakers to strengthen pro-life laws in the state.

Democrats Endanger Justices, Refuse to Help

Justice Kavanaugh’s would-be assassin is in part the result of a problem created by Democrats who have called for violence against the U.S. Supreme Court’s conservative justices for their support for overruling Roe v. Wade, which was confirmed by the recent Dobbs draft opinion leak.

But worse yet, Democrats not only refuse to condemn the would-be assassin’s actions and other violence against the justices, they are intentionally blocking legislation that would provide the justices clearly needed protection. As Republican Leader Mitch McConnell stated:  

This is exactly why the Senate passed legislation very shortly after the leak to enhance the police protection for the Justices and their families. This is commonsense, noncontroversial legislation that passed this chamber unanimously. 

But House Democrats have spent weeks blocking it. The House Democratic majority has refused to take it up.  That needs to change. Right now. House Democrats must pass this bill and they must do it today. House Democrats need to stop their multi-week blockade against the Supreme Court security bill and pass it before the sun sets today.

[Boudin] faced an onslaught of criticism over his progressive criminal justice policies as those supporting his recall pointed to an increased murder rate, violent crime, shoplifting, burglaries, and an open-air drug trade as reasons to vote for his removal from office.
