If you agree with this or not, it would require overturning Roe v. Wade, wouldn't it?
Given that only Congress can make law, how is one court case even relevant?
Is this your first day in America? Are you not aware of how the three branches of government work?
Article 1,Section 1. "ALL legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives." - you mean this government?
What exactly is it you think the Supreme Court does?
See Article 3, Section 2.
Okay, let's try this a different way. You are aware that every single time the Supreme Court issues a ruling, everyone in this country stops doing what they're doing and immediately complies with it.
You are aware of that, right?
That sounds like a personal problem brought on by ignorance on the part of "everyone in this country". Still not law.
I see. So, then, literally every judge, lawyer, law professor, politician, and federal agency simply doesn't know how the Constitution works. Only you do. Correct?
Simple ignorance or indifference - most often the latter, and I would hardly say "every".
Oh, really? Okay, so cite me some legal scholars who think that case law doesn't matter. Go ahead. I'll wait.
Which legal publications do you subscribe to? It couldn't be the ABA journal. Or the Harvard Law Review. Or the Yale Law Review. Or any law review, because those are all full of case citations.
"Case law" is an oxymoron. Opinions are like sphincters, everyone has one yet the Constitution is clear.
That old argument again? Really? Haven't we already been through this? (and refuted it, at that) If Supreme Court cases have no relevance, why is it that we have interracial and same-sex marriage legal in all 50 states? If nothing the courts do is relevant, what is even their purpose?
(and, no, before someone says it, because I KNOW they will, I'm not saying race and sexual orientation are the same thing or something like that)
Article 1, Section 1.
ALL legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the
United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of
So you're refuting the Constitution now? Or does the meaning of the word ALL escape you?
OK, then tell me, which laws that we have now has the Supreme Court made? Roe v. Wade didn't make a new law, Obergefell didn't make a new law....
And what do you the think the SC is FOR, if their rulings aren't relevant in any way?
Why on earth would RvW have to be overturned then? It is not law therefore not binding?
*sigh* Article 3, Section 2 Basically settling matters between states and as an appeals court for lower courts settling matters between two parties.
