The string of infanticide legislation passed in New York and proposed in states such as Virginia and Rhode Island point to a concerted effort by Democrats — not Republicans — to force the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade.
Yes, you read that correctly. Democrats are trying to push the high court into upending the landmark ruling that made abortion legal in all 50 states.
That statement may smell of conspiracy theory to everyday Americans who are not thoroughly jaded by the partisan and power politics that infects both major parties. The idea that Democrats who claim to be fighting for a “woman’s right to choose” would try to accomplish the exact opposite sounds a lot like the moon landing was faked.
But one must consider that politics is first and foremost a rational process in which players strategically try to gain goods, power, and votes. Doing the people’s work is merely a byproduct of power mongering and vote-getting to the elites that occupy the Washington, D.C., swamp. That being said, think back upon the so-called Dreamers who were a rallying point for Democrats. These young people who were brought here illegally as children galvanized the Democratic Party’s connection to minority voters. The left’s propaganda divided the country between Americans whose families had been here for generations and newcomers. This is the same type of false propaganda used to pit women against conservative men who support pro-life initiatives.
If we think back over the history of the Dreamers’ plight, Democrats enjoyed a majority in the U.S. Senate, House and Barack Obama occupied the White House in 2009. The Democrats who had promised the Dreamers a pathway to citizenship for years could have passed any legislation they had the political will to push. Democrats wavered on the issue and did not act.
Naturally, the left claimed GOP obstruction and a host of other falsehoods. But the reality is that they simply did not want to do what it took to make Dreamers U.S. citizens. By 2012, Pres. Obama enacted the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA) which only gave them work permits and kept the issue alive.
After the 2016 elections, Pres. Donald J. Trump and the GOP finally called their bluff by offering Democrats permanent residency for the DACA youths and even those not enrolled that may fit the criteria. When Democrats balked and voted against the DACA kids, they lost the Dreamer issue as a campaign rallying point. Now they have retooled their focus to enhance their connection with female voters.
Women account for 51 percent of the population, and the DNC has pushed hard to elect women to Congress and cry foul when a female candidate loses an election. Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacy Abrams is a good example.
So, what does all this have to do with extreme late-term abortion laws? Everything.
Democrats have consistently won when challenging state laws that impede the abortion rights offered under Roe v Wade. While that sounds like a good thing — if you are a pro-abortion liberal — but it’s not. In fact, all that winning becomes tiresome as Pres. Trump sometimes notes.
For example, Democrats recently won a stay on a Louisiana law that required abortion doctors to have admitting credentials at nearby hospitals should a procedure go awry. Chief Justice Roberts reversed his own opinion from a previous case that mirrored this one to hand liberals the win.
With a conservative majority in the U.S. Supreme Court that sided with abortion advocates, Democrats have nothing to pitch. A so-called “woman’s right to choose” is clearly not in jeopardy. All those heads that exploded when Pres. Trump pushed through two conservative justices are bewildered. Nothing changed.
New York’s law, however, pushes well beyond the boundaries set by the 1973 precedent. Roe v Wade outlines that while a woman has a primary interest in her right to privacy, the state also gains an interest as the pregnancy moves closer to full term. In effect, Roe v Wade balances a woman’s rights against the state’s, i.e., the unborn children. The battle line had long been the third trimester when the high court talked about “viability” outside the womb. Medical advancements have shortened that reality to as few as 23-24 weeks.
The new law passed in New York and pushed in other states would allow for legal abortion up until the second a baby is born. And, in some cases, after delivery. That standard runs 100 percent against Roe v Wade, and Democrats know it. These extremist infanticide laws will inevitably be struck down, and force the high court to reassess Roe v Wade in light of viability outside the womb. By taking a loss on unconstitutional abortion laws, Democrats can amp up their false propaganda that women’s right are under attack. You can expect the fake news media to participate joyfully.
