COMMENT: ‘Dobbs’ Ruling Forces Dems Uncomfortably to the Left in Political Arena

SCOTUS has an 'obligation [to] reconsider all of this Court’s substantive due process precedents...'

(Ezekiel Loseke, Headline USA) The Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health Organization has forced Democrats to defend their radical culture-war stances in the political arena by pushing even farther to the Left.

In Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v Casey, the court asserted that women had a constitutionally protected right to abortion.

Thus, no legislative action was needed to address state-sanctioned infanticide and the issue, though always controversial, was never a political imperative for the Left.

After Dobbs, anti-life political activists were forced to act politically, legally and socially to enable infanticide instead of relying upon SCOTUS’s ruling.

This “political action” included screeching over legislative procedures, vandalizing pregnancy centers and churches, blocking traffic and—for some leftist governors— refusing to enforce existing laws.

It has been, in other words, a radical leftist insurrection.

Dobbs has the potential to affect more culture wars than abortion, however.

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, in his concurring opinion of Dobbs, wrote that the court has “an obligation” to “reconsider all of this Court’s substantive due process precedents.”

Justice Thomas specifically listed court cases mandating states enable homosexual “marriages” and a mandated allowance of contraceptives.

The leftist media is losing its collective mind. Here is one example and here is yet another, but the shrieking may be found in spades on all mainstream media outlets.

The last time the Left tried to defend homosexual “marriage” in the political arena it lost.

In 2008, the citizens of the far-left state of California voted to amend its constitution to read: “Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California,” in a referendum that was dubbed “Proposition 8.”

Unfortunately for the 52% of California voters who supported Prop. 8, it was overruled in 2012, as reported by Yahoo! News.

In 2015, SCOTUS ruled in Obergefell v Hodges that homosexual “marriage” was a protected “right.”

Thus, for the first time since 2015, the legality of homosexual marriage may become a political question. In response, the far-left House passed a bill protecting “the right” to a homosexual “marriage” this week, as reported by CNN.

Contraceptives were protected under the same “substantive due process” reasoning in Griswold v Connecticut. This issue has been out of the political realm since 1965.

The Left, again anticipating losing its monopoly on judicial activism, must now defend that position legislatively.

The Democrat-controlled House, per Yahoo! News, passed a bill attempting to do just that (and more) on Thursday.

In all three policy areas the Left is forced to defend its positions for the first time in several generations.

The Dobbs case, especially the concurrence of Justice Thomas, is pushing Democrats to the left, because they must now take political stances, as may be seen by the two bills mentioned above and the myriad of irrational abortion insurrectionists.
