Supreme Court's future rides on Ginsburg's health


Fair enough.

Do you think that’s what Sotomayor did in Center for Reproductive Law and Policy v. Bush ?


No, I just don’t consider that a particularly relevant case. After all, as the justices stated: “The Supreme Court has made clear that the government is free to favor the anti-abortion position over the pro-choice position, and can do so with public funds.” It would be a bold circuit court indeed that would try to overrule a Supreme Court judgment.


Amazingly, all 4 (ALL FOUR!!!) Supreme Court Justices appointed by Democratic Presidents (Kagan, Sotomayor, Ginsburg, Breyer) voted in favor of the California law forcing pro-life women’s health centers to promote abortion. So, it matters greatly which President makes the nominations.
On the other hand, all 5 Justices (Thomas, Gorsuch, Kennedy, Roberts, Alito) nominated by Republican Presidents voted in favor of free speech and religious liberty for pro-life women’s health centers.
