(RepublicanInformer.com)- A new report from Newsweek argues that United States Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor has picked up the torch of “women’s rights” from the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Justin Klawans wrote last week that Sotomayor issued a “blistering dissent” on Thursday following the court’s rejection of another attempt by Texas abortion providers to send the “Heartbeat Bill” legal dispute back to the District Courts.
The Supreme Court ruled in favor of a decision by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals on Monday, which stopped the ban from being sent back to the lower courts where left-wing judges may have sided with the abortion providers and brought an end to the legislation.
Justices Stephen Breyer and Elena Kagan also dissented with Sotomayor, arguing that the lower courts should have been allowed to make rulings on the legislation.
Under the Texas abortion law, abortion providers are not allowed to perform abortions on women who are more than six weeks pregnant, given that the fetus has measurable cardiac activity at this stage of gestation.
However, Sotomayor wrote that the decision was a “disaster for the rule of law” as well as a “grave disservice to women in Texas, who have a right to control their own bodies.”
How is it 2022 and we’re still pushing the lie that a fetus is a part of a woman’s body, and not an entirely separate body?
Sotomayor also harshly criticized her colleagues on the court, claiming that she was ignoring “nearly 50 years of this Court’s precedents.”
Suddenly left-wingers care about precedent?
Sotomayor wrote in his dissenting opinion that the Fifth Circuit should have recommended the case to the District Court, “allowing it to consider whether to issue preliminary relief” while legal battles continue.
Is Sotomayor doing this on a matter of principle, or does she just want to leave a legacy as impactful and memorable as Ginsburg?
