Democrats want revenge on the Supreme Court.
Leftists are outraged about the Court’s conservative majority.
Clarence Thomas will be furious when he sees what this judge just ruled.
Federal Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly is one of the leftists up in arms over the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade.
In an insane maneuver, Kollar-Kotelly is using a criminal case against Pro-Life activists to claim that the 13th Amendment’s prohibitions against slavery constitutionally protect abortion.
In this case, Lauren Handy, one of the defendants, argued that since the Supreme Court ended abortion on demand as a constitutional right, the government cannot prosecute them for protesting outside of an abortion clinic.
“There is no longer a federal constitutional interest to protect, and Congress lacks jurisdiction,” Handy’s lawyers explained in a statement obtained by Politico. “The Dobbs decision did not indicate that there is no longer a constitutional right to abortion; the Court has made it clear there never was.”
Kollar-Kotelly claimed that the Court only held that abortion was not protected under the 14th Amendment in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization decision.
“It is entirely possible that the Court might have held in Dobbs that some other provision of the Constitution provided a right to access reproductive services had that issue been raised,” Kollar-Kotelly stated. “However, it was not raised.”
“The ‘issue’ before the Court in Dobbs was not whether any provision of the Constitution provided a right to abortion. Rather, the question before the Court in Dobbs was whether the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution provided such a right,” Kollar-Kotelly added.
Kollar-Kotelly cited a fringe argument by alleged legal scholar Andrew Koppelman that the 13th Amendment protects abortion because banning slavery means the government cannot force women to give birth.
“Forced pregnancy’s violation of personal liberty is obvious,” Koppelman outrageously claimed. “Restrictions on abortion also violate the Amendment’s guarantee of equality, because forcing women to be mothers makes them into (what so much tradition defined them as) a servant caste, a group that, by virtue of a status of birth, is held subject to a special duty to serve others and not themselves.”
Clarence Thomas and the other conservative Justices on the Supreme Court made it clear that there is no Constitutional right to an abortion.
Leftists were so incensed by this decision that a lunatic judicial activist is trying to use a criminal case to claim banning abortion is a form of slavery.
