    From the dissenting opinion, and this is how much these fucking scum hate women.

    Under state restrictions, ďa woman will have to bear her rapistís child or a young girl her fatherís Ė no matter if doing so will destroy her lifeĒ, the liberal justices wrote.

    Not a question of want. They did. This current SCOTUS is the most reprehensible court in American history and is hell-bent on agenda rather than established precedent. It is truly a kangaroo court.

    Indeed, and a convincing case for reform of SCOTUS.

    I have been in favor of this for some time, starting with term limits. Lifetime court appointments should end at all levels.

    Term limits would do a great deal to help with that. The fact is that America is really two countries at this point and hopelessly divided.

    The only way to do that will open a door that will never close.

    If they did it, the next time round the Republicans will absolutely appoint five.

    It solves nothing.

    No doubt this idea will gain momentum in the near future.


    The Reckless Race to Confirm Amy Coney Barrett Justifies Court Packing


    We used to reject court packing as a dangerous game. Now we believe it may be the best way to restore the Court’s legitimacy.

    Barely a week after the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, before the late justice had even been buried, President Donald Trump hosted a Rose Garden ceremony to formally announce his nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to fill the open seat on the Supreme Court. A week later, it appears that the inauspicious ceremony may have been at the center of the coronavirus outbreak now plaguing the White House and the Senate. Yet even with the president hospitalized and three Republican senators infected with the virus, the Republican Party is barreling ahead with its effort to install Barrett mere weeks before Election Day. The reckless rush to vote is an indication of the desperate and corrosive power grab at play, one that places the future of the Court at risk. If Republicans succeed, and Democrats win the Senate and the White House in November, Democrats must add seats for additional justices—not as a means of political one-upmanship, but, paradoxically, to save the Court.

    For the past few years, court packing has largely been a fringe idea, promulgated by leftist scholars and activists infuriated by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s refusal to hold Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Merrick Garland in 2016. For the most part, the Democratic establishment has been resistant to the notion, on the grounds that Republicans would someday surely try to respond in kind.
    We understand these objections; until recently, we shared them, and dismissed court packing as institutionally corrosive and politically unserious. But no longer. The current battle over the Supreme Court changes the calculus; if Barrett is confirmed and Trump loses the election, adhering to norms and accepting the status quo on January 20 poses a greater harm than expanding the Court would. We have now come to believe, more in sorrow than in anger, that adding justices may be the only way to restore the institutional legitimacy of the Court.

    ^ Not in the US apparently but the law should not be political.

    The answer is obvious. Abolish the supreme court.
    Lawmakers are responsible for making laws, judges should be responsible only for administering it.
    They shouldn't be able to change laws they don't like, that should be a government process.

    The SCOTUS is responsible for interpreting the law in terms of the constitution, not administering it.

    The problem is there are those that interpret it as if they're still living in the 1700s and those that have a more modernistic approach. We know who sits in which group.

    The problem is not with the structure of the US political system, but the unfettered abuse of it by one party, who got the votes to achieve their aims by dog whistling to racist fucking morons.

    Things change with time. The 7-2 Roe vs Wade decision was made by a court having a large majority of Republican Pres appointed judges.
