Fox News legal analyst: Alabama’s abortion law is a Trojan horse meant to destroy Roe v. Wade

Published

on

Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano on Thursday predicted that Alabama’s severe anti-abortion law will get taken up by the Supreme Court — and he said that it presented a once-in-a-generation opportunity for conservatives to roll back constitutional protections on the right to have an abortion.

During his appearance, Napolitano pointed to comments made by proponents of the Alabama legislation indicating that they hope their bill is a Trojan Horse aimed at getting the Supreme Court to reconsider the landmark 1973 ruling Roe v. Wade.

“It’s written for that purpose,” Napolitano explained. “There is a view that there is a pro-life majority in the Supreme Court and obviously a pro-life president. And if there is any time to dismantle Roe… the time is now.”

Napolitano predicted that overturning Roe wouldn’t lead to a nationwide abortion ban, however, and would simply kick the issue back to individual states.

“Even Justice Scalia, who believed abortion was murder, felt that the proper constitutional position was to leave it up to the states, because the constitution is silent on it,” he said.

US withholds cash from UN Population Fund over China abortions

Published

The United States said Tuesday it will again withhold contributions to the UN Population Fund due to its work with China, which controls family size, as the agency accused Washington of jeopardizing women's health.

It marked the third straight year that the United States has refused to fund the UN body as President Donald Trump's administration seeks to combat abortion, a pivotal issue for his evangelical Christian base.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo determined that "China's family planning policies still involve the use of coercive abortion and involuntary sterilization practices," conditions that under US law require an end to funding, a State Department spokeswoman said.

Kim Jong-un threatens to restart nuke tests as Trump’s efforts to talk to the regime fall apart again: report

Published

on

On Tuesday, CNN's Brian Todd reported that the North Korean regime is on the brink of rescinding what little they promised President Donald Trump, as the future of his efforts to continue talks appear uncertain.

"Kim Jong-un's regime is once again in negotiation by intimidation," said Todd. "Just two weeks after their historic meeting at the DMZ, and President Trump's short stroll into North Korea, North Korea's dictator Kim Jong-un appears to be threatening to start testing his nuclear weapons again. In a new statement, Kim's foreign ministry calls the joint U.S./South Korean military exercises planned for next month a breach of the main spirit of what President Trump and Kim agreed to in Singapore, and says, 'We are gradually losing our justifications to follow through on the commitments we made with the U.S."

Published

Chaos continued on the floor of the House of Representatives during the debate on a resolution condemning President Donald Trump's racist attacks on four young women of color.

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) rose to support the resolution, listing multiple instances of racism from the commander-in-chief.

As part of the list, Swalwell noted Trump's attacks on "sh*thole countries."

After he swore on the floor by quoting the president, Republicans freaked out.

Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) complained and got in a back-and-forth with Swalwell.

Collins sought to have Swalwell's words stricken from the Congressional Record, which would have banned him from speaking for the rest of the day.
