2022 is a big year for supporters of Supreme Court reform. Roe v. Wade, the landmark case that gave women nationwide the right to have abortions, might be overturned, and the debate around changing the way we structure the bench — in particular, packing the court — is getting only more heated.The past decade has brought a shift in the makeup of the court — from Brett Kavanaugh, appointed despite sexual assault allegations, to Merrick Garland, blocked from confirmation, and Amy Coney Barrett, rushed to confirmation.It's the culmination of decades of effort by Republicans to make the courts more conservative. And now Democrats want to push back by introducing some radical changes.Today, Jane Coaston brings together two guests who disagree on whether altering Supreme Court practices is the right call and, if yes, what kind of changes would make sense for the highest judicial body in the nation.Russ Feingold is the president of the American Constitution Society and was a Democratic senator from Wisconsin from 1993 to 2011. And Russ Miller is an attorney and law professor at Washington and Lee and the head of the Max Planck Law Network in Germany.Mentioned in this episode:“Americans No Longer Have Faith in the U.S. Supreme Court. That Has Justices Worried,” by Russ Feingold in The Guardian, published in October 2021.“We Don't Need to Reform The Supreme Court,” by Russ Miller in Just Security, published in February 2021.“The Future of Supreme Court Reform,” by Daniel Epps and Ganesh Sitaraman in Harvard Law Review, published in May 2021.

Interview with Law Professor Thane Rosenbaum, the brilliant columnist/essayist and analyst, and is also the CBS News Radio Legal analyst. Last week, The Supreme Court heard the Mississippi case of Dobbs V. Jackson where the state is looking to restrict abortions after 15 weeks. Will their decision overturn Roe v Wade? Were the Justices questions about advocacy or the law? Is adoption a viable and reasonable alternative to abortion? Two weeks ago, Kyle Rittenhouse was found NOT guilty in a court of law, but was found EXTREMELY GUILTY by the media and left-wing mobs, who, while decrying so-called “vigilante justice,” were demanding “social justice” which doesn't require a trial. Their only criteria is race and if a firearm was used. Are Soros-Funded DA's responsible for the new crime wave across big cities?

265: Roe v. Wade May Soon Be Overturned - But Few Understand What It Does

Life Matters

Roe v. Wade didn't give women anything. What it did do is give doctors the right to kill babies. “Roe really isn't about the woman's choice... It's about the doctor's freedom to practice his profession as he thinks best.It was not woman centered. It was physician centered.” - Ruth Bader Ginsburg, University of Chicago lecture May 10, 2013 The media doesn't tell you this. Very few people understand Roe. It is in fact an amalgam of two separate decisions that were then ‘conjoined' by the Court. Roe v. Wade addressed a Texas law. Doe v. Bolton dismissed the abortion laws of Georgia. On Jan 22nd, 1973, they were both handed down simultaneously and “conjoined” by the Court as one ruling. Many now call this conjoined action “Roe” or “the Roe regime.” Though they dealt with two different states, and each has very different tone, the net effect of the combined decision was to strike down not only those two states' laws, but the laws of every other state as well! In the Doe portion of the decision, the author, Justice Blackmun, inserted a special ‘health exception.' He intentionally defined it in the broadest possible terms. The reasons need not be written down, but only exist, ‘in the judgement of the doctor.' If the abortionist felt there may be any sociological or psychological implications for that woman's motherhood, “all of these things may be considered health. (Roe and Doe @183).  A physically healthy child could be killed inside of a physically healthy mother – throughout pregnancy – if his judgement called for it. In dissent, Justice White summed up this late term, ‘psychobabble' exception: “… for anyone of such reasons, or no reason at all, and without asserting or claiming any threat to life or health… [it was now to be legal for] any medical advisor willing to take up the procedure…. I dissent.” (Roe and Doe dissent @221).  It's funny how media analysts avoid any discussion of this ‘little' exception.  Since then, the media narrative has reduced the debate, and simply summed all this up as, ‘a woman's choice.' The media is intent on simplifying issues for consumption. But such simplicity often comes at the cost of stultifying its consumers as well. That's us. If you examine her statement carefully, Justice Ginsburg was right: the conjoined, twin decisions of Roe and Doe are clear. The choice and decision are the abortionist's alone. The woman, even if ‘uncomfortable,' simply needs to go along with what ‘the doctor' has in mind. A killing profession was pulled from centuries of shadows. It was given license and legitimacy on that day.  For millennia, the Hippocratic Oath had unequivocally condemned this killing of vulnerable children. And legally, abortion has always been frowned on by the law since at least Common Law times and in many cases long before that. But Blackmun and his fellows declared the healing profession turned on its head. Doctors were now free to be fully licensed killers. Their personal thoughts and judgments considered supreme in life or death. The Oath and its centuries of influence on law and society were pronounced dead via Roe and Doe. ‘If babies are to be killed, then a professional will do it.'   Today's USSC In the oral arguments of this December 1st, Justice Kavanaugh very politely complimented abortion advocates, but summed up the challenge in contemplating Roe. There are two competing interests and legal principles at stake, he said. The one, “the liberty interest,” (or ‘right to choose') was forcefully and effectively presented by the Solicitor General of the United States, who was arguing the case. He gave her a ‘hat tip.' But the other competing interest is the right to life which is at stake. These two interests exist in direct variance. We cannot ‘split the difference': either one or the other will dominate. They cannot,“both win.” The other five pro-life Justices who are oft-times silent, also offered questions and comments - yes, each spoke – and confirmed their pro-life positions.  The three, abortion-supporting Justices: Kagan, Sotomayor, and Breyer, not only commented, but with acerbic resignation seemed to ooze bitterness.  Their jibes about contrary ‘political decisions,' and the ‘danger to the court;' their affection for ‘court precedence' all seemed to aim directly at influencing the Chief Justice. Their implications: 'If you do this, our Democrat Party may need to change the structure of this Court. We will pack it.' Chief Justice Roberts, known to be very susceptible to pressure regarding the image and nature of the Court, made statements that seemed to be supportive of the Mississippi law and of its 15-week limit. But this desire to ‘split the difference,' while seeming to ‘cross the line' that Roe had drawn, is in fact in direct variance with Justice Kavanaugh's open statement that you can't somehow cut the baby in two' and ‘allow both the liberty interest and the right to life be given equal weight.' While there are six openly pro-life votes on the Court, I urge you not to use the simplistic media analysis: ‘It's a black and white, apolitical-head count.'  Yes, the hearing bodes well for life. But I sat with colleagues in 1992 as we read the result of the Casey decision. Remember, that Pennsylvania law was, “going to bring down Roe.” But Casey itself was, as they say in boxing, a split decision.  Few of the judges really agreed. The result was that Casey had to be ‘cobbled together.' At the end of the day, Roe was in fact still upheld! Each of the justices had gone in different, nuanced directions.  This became what the court officially calls a “joint decision.”  Some judges upheld portions of the Pennsylvania law yet insisted on striking others.  There was no clear majority.  Justice Blackmun, Roe's author, was still on the court in 1992. Predictably, his decision in Casey proudly upheld Roe. Back in Casey, then Supreme Court Chief Justice William Rehnquist voted with a plurality - Scalia, White, and Thomas, to ‘adjust' Roe ( he did not have the votes to overturn.) But he attempted to continue to dismantle it. The Court jettisoned the false and deceptive ‘trimester' framework, (Has the media EVER told you that the trimester system was long-ago ruled meaningless and arbitrary? The Court also conceded that there was not in fact, a‘fundamental right' to abortion. Does ANY local, or even national reporter ever comment on that? Nope. The actual status of abortion law is continually misrepresented by a simplistic media.) But after Casey, and despite loss of credibility, Roe still stood. But in a simplistically meaningless salute to ‘choice' and the legal folly of stare decisis (the legal insistence that a ‘previous decision continue to stand'). Chief Justice Rehnquist stated in his ruling, “Roe continues to exist, but only in the way that a storefront on a western movie set exists: a mere façade to give the illusion of reality... Behind the façade an entirely new method of analysis without any roots in constitutional law…”   Casey Joint Decision, 1992 For us today, the question for 2022 is: What will this Court now do? You just read that Chief Justices will throw their decisions in surprisingly unlikely corners - this to help frame and ‘craft' the final decisions their colleagues may be offering.  Will Justice Roberts, widely known for such politicking, try that? Will he attempt to ‘split the difference' yet again? But with five other solid lifers, could he? I fully expect the old façade known as Roe to topple. This diseased tree will indeed fall. But in which direction?   A bigger issue, that is almost never addressed, undergirds this entire debate: “Will doctors be free to continue in their now 50-year-old license to do what they want, even to kill? Justice Ginsburg, and a handful of others, knew this issue just never gets discussed.  Whatever happens in the coming decision, you can expect the major media to enjoy the controversy. Just don't expect them to get it right. ----- Here's a nice thought: the media has stopped talking about the Texas abortion law heard by the court two weeks earlier. But that law is powerful. The Court has allowed it to remain in effect.  Abortions have come to a halt in Texas.  So, the media has joined in the terrified silence of the abortion industry regarding that law.  Wouldn't it be nice if the Court decided to rule on Texas as well? Then, as they did in 1973, perhaps issue a conjoined decision, but this time protecting the right of unborn children to be protected and honored under the law?    Brian Johnston is the author of Evil Twins - Roe and Doe: How the Supreme Court Unleashed Medical Killing available on Amazon and wherever fine books are sold.

The future of abortion in America is on the line. The Supreme Court has just ruled on a case and is preparing a decision on a second that could end Roe v Wade. In this episode, I talk to the co-lead counsel on one of the abortion cases before the US Supreme Court, Dobbs v Jackson Women's Health Organization.Hillary Schneller is Senior Staff Attorney at the Center for Reproductive Rights. The group is leading the fight against both the Texas 6-week abortion ban and the Mississippi 15-week abortion ban. We spoke Friday, hours after the Supreme Court ruled on the Texas law. Justices found that abortion providers can challenge the state's abortion law in lower courts. But they did not stay the law, meaning the near abortion ban stays in effect and women in Texas can't get an abortion after 6 weeks. It also means that vigilante citizens can bring enforcement cases against abortion providers and others.At the same time the country anxiously awaits a ruling in another case. Dobbs v Jackson Women's Health Organization asks the court to overturn Roe v Wade, and find that women don't have a constitutionally protected right to abortion. In this episode we discuss what the lawyers argued before the court, what it all means, and what resources pregnant people and reproductive rights activists have if Roe is gutted.Hillary SchnellerTwitter: twitter.com/hischnellerYou can follow Jessica Yellin here:Instagram: instagram.com/jessicayellin​Twitter: twitter.com/jessicayellinWebsite: NewsNotNoise.comNewsletter: newsnotnoise.bulletin.comSupport this work:patreon.com/NewsNotNoiseJessica Yellin is the founder of News Not Noise, a channel dedicated to giving you news with real experts and providing information, not a panic attack.

More than reading the tea leaves of where the nine Justices may come down, in today's episode, Chris cautions that reading into the questions they ask is not always representative of the outcome they ultimately come to decide.  So while the arguments can be instructive in getting a sense of what they seek to understand, it is not always dispositive of their leaning.Then, Chris and Vick tick through the Justices' questions and arguments that generally fall into three camps of outcome: kick it to the states and uphold Mississippi; a compromise of allowing Mississippi law to go to 15 weeks but keeping Roe in tact; or allowing the 50 years of precedent to hold firm as many Justices have reiterated over the years since Roe and then Casey were decided.Chris explains that while a lot is made of past judicial decisions,  something is stare decisis (the Latin term in the law for standing by things decided) until it isn't.  In other words: precedent is only precedent until they change it.And Another Thing:  A beat on the continual need to keep calm and carry on when it comes to the Omicron variant, and Chris' prescription to not to let panic get ahead of the facts. Plus:  An introduction to the Cuomo family dogs, all three!

This morning (December 1), the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments in a landmark case that could change access to legal abortions in the United States. A law in Mississippi called the Gestational Age Act,passed in 2018,  prohibits a woman from having an abortion if she has been pregnant for more than 15 weeks. The law was challenged by the only remaining place in Mississippi that provides abortions, a clinic in the state's largest city, Jackson, called the Jackson Women's Health Clinic. If the court decides the Mississippi law is constitutional, the legal precedent established in the Court's 1973 ruling in the case of Roe v. Wadewill be eliminated. Recent polls show that 70% of Americans support the right to an abortion guaranteed in Roe v Wade, but the current Court, with six conservative Justices and three liberal Justices, may decide to overturn that historic ruling. A decision in the case is expected by summer. Joining Tom today with analysis and perspective is the legal scholar Kim Wehle, a law professor at the University of Baltimore School of Law, a former Assistant US Attorney, and the author of two excellent books, How to Read the Constitution-And Why,and What You Need to Know About Voting-And Why.  Wehle is also the host of the Instagram & YouTube Show called #Simple Politics.
