Oh Yeah! It's coming! Praise God. Let's get ready chanting "Veni Creator Spiritus" and "Te Deum" when it comes. It's unlikely to be even 3 full years now; before the 50th ignominous anniversary of the beginning of the legal abortion holocaust in America, RvW can be overturned. But all of those almost certain future victories to come are absolutely contingent on one thing happening first - Trump-Pence winning big in Nov. 2020. So pray and work with all your strength from now to the finish line for that to be accomplished - and you will have played your part in ending the worst genocide of our times - 2 billion innocent lives lost to this brutal infanticidal industry worldwide in the last 50 odd years; God will reward you richly for it in Heaven, and the Infants you've saved, and their Angel Guardians, will be eternally grateful. Fail to act, and history will judge unfavorably - of the time we could have united to prevent it but did not rise up. God forbid that should happen. Rise up!

Over 200 Members of Congress Urge Supreme Court to Reconsider Roe v. Wade
The Court, the lawmakers say, should “again take up the issue of whether Roe and Casey should be reconsidered and, if appropriate, overruled.”

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Ahead of a Supreme Court hearing, more than 200 members of Congress have signed on to support Louisiana’s abortion regulations, and have asked the Court to address Roe’s “unworkable” finding of a “right to abortion.”

39 senators and 168 members of the House representing 38 states signed on to an amicus brief filed on Thursday by Americans United for Life, in the case of Gee v. June Medical Services, LLC. The brief argues that Louisiana’s safety regulations on abortion clinics are constitutional.

In the brief, the lawmakers “strongly urge the Court to uphold the decision” that kept in place Louisiana’s abortion regulations.
Furthermore, they argue that the Court’s current abortion jurisprudence, such as the Casey decision, which forbade states from putting “undue burdens” on abortion access, reveals that the “right to abortion” outlined in the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision is “unworkable.”

The Court, the lawmakers say, should “again take up the issue of whether Roe and Casey should be reconsidered and, if appropriate, overruled.”

Louisiana’s law, the Unsafe Abortion Protection Act, was sponsored by Democratic State Rep. Katrina Jackson and signed by then-Gov. Bobby Jindal, R in 2014. It was immediately challenged in court.

The act requires abortion clinics, where surgical abortions are performed, to have the same safety standards as those of other ambulatory surgical centers. Abortion doctors must have admitting privileges at a local hospital licensed by the state health department and with the ability to provide necessary “surgical and diagnostic” care.

Louisiana’s current governor John Bel Edwards, D has supported the law. Earlier this year, he signed a ban on abortions conducted after a baby’s heartbeat is detected in utero, before he was re-elected in November.

The abortion regulation was permanently barred by a district court, but that decision was reversed by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in January. The Supreme Court temporarily blocked the law from going into effect in February, before deciding in October that it would consider a challenge to the law.

The plaintiff in the Supreme Court case June Medical Services, LLC, an abortion clinic in Shreveport, Louisiana.

The amicus brief by members was led by Sens. John Kennedy, R-La. and Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), and Rep. Mike Johnson, R-La.

“I’m proud to lead the fight in Congress defending Louisiana’s pro-life law that will soon come before the U.S. Supreme Court,” Scalise stated in a press release on Thursday.

“Innocent life must be protected at every stage, and I urge the Supreme Court to uphold this law which ensures the health and safety regulations meant to protect Louisianans from the very abortionists who don't want high standards,” Scalise stated.

The brief comes a month after national medical organizations, including the American Medical Association, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, and the American Academy of Pediatrics, filed an amicus brief against Louisiana’s law at the Court.

The law, the organizations said, is similar to Texas’ law that was struck down by the Court in 2016 in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, as an “undue burden” on a woman’s access to abortion. The Texas law required clinics to have the same standards as ambulatory surgical centers and required admitting privileges for abortionists.

However, supporters of Louisiana’s law say it significantly differs from Texas’ law that did not survive the Supreme Court.

As cited in the amicus brief on Thursday, the Fifth Circuit court ruled that Louisiana’s law not only presented evidence of health benefits, but did not treat abortion clinics inequitably in singling them out for adverse action. Rather, the court said, the law tried to align the clinics’ surgical abortion standards with those of ambulatory surgical centers.

In its ruling that kept the law in place, the Fifth Circuit stated that “the facts in the instant case are remarkably different from those that occasioned the invalidation of the Texas statute,” the amicus brief noted.

The “history” of health violations of Louisiana abortion clinics shows “an inherent conflict of interest between abortion providers and their patients regarding state health and safety regulations,” the amicus brief argued."

  • I don't agree with XavierSem about the Crisis in the Church or the SSPX, but I have to chime in here.

    I don't believe this would have happened if "Scylla" rather than "Charybdis" had been elected in 2016. Sorry, I don't buy it.
    (I'm mocking those who claim the 2-party system "fraud" continues PAST 2016 to the present day. I claim it was a valid belief/outlook, but only until 2015.)

    Bushes/Clintons/Obamas/Gore/McCain/Kerry were all on the same side. Trump is not part of their little NWO Deep State party.

    All this Pro-life activity, especially such going-on-the-offensive such as this, is purely attributable to the Trump phenomenon. Even activity that Trump had no direct hand in (such as this Congressional act), can easily be connected indirectly to Trump's election in 2016. Trump has gotten things rolling back in the right direction.

    Trump 2020!

  • …Bushes/Clintons/Obamas/Gore/McCain/Kerry were all on the same side. Trump is not part of their little NWO Deep State party.…

    Most likely, Trump is not knowingly part of (((deep state))) BUT:

    1. he knowingly aligned with the Chabadniks (arguably the most vicious Master Race faction of Judaism) against the globalist faction
    and
    2. probably unknowingly, he is a pawn in the chesed/gevurah (mercy/severity) game of the (((deep state))).

    The rabbis have long played the game of subjectivity, using chesed/gevurah, right/left, thesis/antithesis, Rabbi Shammai/Rabbi Hillel, problem/reaction to move the goalposts to suit (((their))) goals: tifferet, center, synthesis, solution.

    Trump, arguably knowingly, put himself in the nationalist/globalist shadow play, ignoring that, no matter which faction wins, (((the wrong people))) win. Somewhat similar to the capitalist/communist shadow play, (((they))) win BIG, huge profit, huge control. No matter which Jewish faction wins, the goyim lose. In abetting that, whether knowingly or unknowingly, Trump deserves opprobrium.

  • What national leader (president, king, etc.) doesn't deserve opprobrium in your opinion? Which of them did an adequate job?

    Adolf Hitler?

    Hitler was a Maranno. His role was to scare the Jews who were happy in Europe into becoming zionists and going to Palestine.

    Not sure why that is relevant.

    Agreed. President Trump's election was a very good thing and caught them all by suprise.

    They probably interfered with the ballot boxes anyway, but not sufficiently to prevent it.

    Serious Catholics, Evangelical Christians et al have the obligation to support Trump in 2020.

    It is a virtual certainty now that Roe v Wade can and will be overturned, with 4 more years.

    I definitely agree President Trump deserves the lion's share of the credit. I'd credit VP Pence too.

    I'd also credit good Catholics like Rev. Fr. Pavone of Priests for Life, Marjorie Dannenfelser of SBA etc.

    Definitely. According to Vox, things began to go bad for the pro-abortions around 2010, though.

    Trump 2020!

    Amen. 4 more years of President Trump, Matthew, and the battle is won. I wish others understood it.

    The facts of the statistics alone make it virtually certain. Trump has reshaped 25% of the courts in 3 years.

    At the same rate, he would reshape 50% in 6 years, i.e. before 2023. I daresay everyone will support him then.

    Even if it is around 40% only, it should be enough. And then his promised appointment of pro-life Catholic Amy Barrett ...

    He's told several persons, as was reported, that he's saving Judge Barrett for when Ginsburg retires. That's also likely soon.

    Everything depends on President Trump and Mike Pence being re-elected. If they get 4 more years, America's future is secure.

    Liberal site, but some useful historical information in it.

    The downfall of Roe v. Wade started in 2010
    Abortion access in America hangs by a thread. The unraveling began a decade ago.

    This year, five states passed laws banning abortion before most people know they’re pregnant. Alabama passed a ban on the procedure at any stage of pregnancy, with no exceptions for rape or incest. In Ohio, lawmakers introduced a bill that would create a crime called “abortion murder,” punishable by life in prison.

    For many, restrictions like these would have been unthinkable just a few years ago. But as we look ahead to 2020, the anti-abortion movement could be on the brink of its biggest success yet: dismantling the landmark Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade.
    To understand how we got here, you have to understand what happened in 2010.

    At the turn of the decade, statehouses went red across America. Republicans gained control of 11 state legislatures and increased their majorities in three more; in some places, like Alabama and North Carolina, they erased Democratic majorities that had existed since the 19th century. When the votes were counted, the GOP had added 680 seats in state legislatures around the country ...

    The pace of abortion restrictions skyrocketed after 2010

    Abortion opponents have been working to restrict the procedure since before Roe v. Wade was decided. The National Right to Life Committee, which describes itself as “the nation’s oldest and largest pro-life organization,” opened its doors in 1968. Three years later, Americans United for Life, which writes model legislation to help states pass abortion restrictions, was founded.

    Groups like these had successes in the wake of Roe, like the passage of the federal Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003, which banned a medical procedure called intact dilation and extraction, a type of abortion performed in the later stages of pregnancy. Versions of this bill also passed at the state level.

    But the pace of restrictions was, by today’s standards, relatively slow. Then came the 2010 elections.

    There were a lot of reasons for Republican wins that year. The Great Recession was technically over, but Americans were still hurting — “people were losing jobs, and people were getting foreclosed on,” Elizabeth Nash, senior state issues manager at the Guttmacher Institute, told Vox. Around the country, Tea Party candidates ran on platforms of fiscal responsibility and low taxes, presenting themselves as an alternative to the Democrats who controlled the White House and both houses of Congress ...

    The result at the state level was a landslide. Republicans won majorities in 11 state legislatures, including Ohio, Indiana, and Alabama. They strengthened their majorities in Texas, Georgia, and Florida. They also won 11 governorships previously held by Democrats, including in Ohio and Iowa.

    Some candidates — like Sam Brownback, who was elected governor of Kansas — ran on a staunchly anti-abortion-rights platform, but many didn’t. In some cases, Nash said, “I think people didn’t necessarily know quite how conservative they were” on the issue.
    It soon became clear, however: “You started to see abortion restrictions just fly through state legislatures” once the new Republican majorities were seated in 2011, Nash said.

    Ohio is just one example. In 2011, the state passed legislation banning public hospitals from performing abortions in most cases, as well as prohibiting health insurance policies from providing abortion coverage to local government workers, Fedor said. The same year, Ohio lawmakers introduced the first “heartbeat” bill, which would have banned abortion as soon as a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can be as early as six weeks’ gestation ...

    The 2010 elections also set the stage for the Supreme Court case that could gut Roe...

    This March, the Supreme Court will hear arguments in June Medical Services v. Gee, which concerns a 2014 Louisiana law that’s nearly identical to the one at issue in Hellerstedt. This time, though, many believe that the court — on which conservative Justice Brett Kavanaugh now sits — will decide to uphold the law, paving the way for states to introduce more and more clinic restrictions and make abortion harder and harder to get."
