Conservatives stew in pot of their own fury over SCOTUS abortion ruling: ‘Kennedy sides with butchers’

Published

on

The Supreme Court’s striking down of a highly restrictive anti-choice law on Monday set off some conservatives who had been hoping for a 4-4 tie which would have let the law stand.

By a 5-3 vote, the court threw out a Texas law requiring abortion providers to have admitting privileges at local hospitals with a mandate that clinics must also meet the same strict standards as ambulatory surgical centers.

According to the majority decision, the law went against the undue burden standard established in the 1992 case Planned Parenthood v. Casey.

With Justice Anthony Kennedy’s vote once again being pivotal, the moderate jurist who often seems to be in the middle of every tight decision took more than his share of abuse,  with one conservative commentator saying he sided “with the butchers against innocent life.”

In April, "Abbott and the state’s other Republican leaders have blasted local officials in Dallas and Houston for what they called overzealous enforcement of COVID-19 regulations, first zeroing in on Democratically led Harris County’s decision to fine residents for not wearing face masks, a penalty Abbott banned in his April 27 reopening order," ProPublica reported. "The fights came to a head this month with the arrest of a Dallas hair salon owner who refused to shutter her business, an act of defiance that was supported by a right-wing group that launched a GoFundMe campaign a day before she reopened that raised $500,000 before it was disabled."

Published

on

On Thursday, Politico reported that it could take a decade for unemployment levels to return to where they were before the coronavirus pandemic, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

"The economic outlook for the next 10 years has 'deteriorated significantly' since the independent budget agency issued its last complete set of projections in January, CBO noted," reported Caitlan Emma.
