If the Supreme Court of the United States overturned Roe v. Wade tomorrow, abortion would become a state level issue. States in progressive control could permit abortion till birth. States in conservative control could ban abortion. People who lived in states where abortion was restricted could travel to states that allow abortion and have one with no penalty from their home state. Entirely new non-profits could be created to pay the travel costs of those who live in conservative areas who want an abortion. The reality, however, is that most conservative states would not ban abortion, though they would certain curtail it to variously degrees.
That is the reality.
But the left in America has predicated its religious fervor for abortion on the mythology of back alley abortions and nationwide bans. As a result, the political left in America, with religious fervor, will do anything and everything to stop any possibility of California being able to have unfettered abortion access while Tennessee restricts access. That leads me to Brett Kavanaugh.
The accusations against Brett Kavanaugh are not true and none of the people claiming to care passionately about their truth really care about their truth. We know by their demands that he step aside now. We know because if a 35 year old allegation from high school that is single sourced with no witness, strong denials, and no corroboration is considered credible, there are no allegations that could ever be considered not credible.
The accusation against Brett Kavanaugh is because of abortion. The liberal college professor is being promoted by partisan groups with an expressed desire to advance the abortion agenda. Democrat PR firms are coordinating messaging on this on behalf of the abortion industry. They are convinced Brett Kavanaugh would overturn Roe v. Wade so he must be destroyed.
The result is Democrats demanding documents from the White House about Kavanaugh then withholding the most important one of all. The result is Democrats bungling the roll out of the accusations and coordinating talking points with pundits and reporters to call Kavanaugh “credibly accused.” The result is a leftwing punditocracy that has decided there is nothing Kavanaugh can do to clear his name except step aside.
This is all about cracking open the skulls of children, vacuuming out their brains, and tearing them limb from limb before selling them for scrap. This has nothing to do with guilt or innocence. This has nothing to do with due process. This has nothing to do with justice or equality. This has everything to do with killing kids.
And yes, it is fair to say the handling of Merrick Garland did as well. Abortion politics has infested our institutions and required both sides to not only cede no ground, but escalate the fight beyond reason. The only way forward really is to end Roe and let this be a state issue. But the political left is too invested in a centralized, single abortion policy at the national level.
So Republicans must now double down in defense of Kavanaugh or push forward someone even more conservative. Otherwise, the left will keep escalating abortion politics. Eventually, the nomination processes will turn violent.
