Now Do Marriage

Abortion was never a right and it is now officially no longer a right again in the US, and states can now outlaw it:

"The US Supreme Court has ended the nation's constitutional protections for abortion that had been in place nearly 50 years in a decision by its conservative majority to overturn Roe v Wade. The outcome is expected to lead to abortion bans in roughly half the states and has sparked a furious reaction.

The court's decision, unthinkable just a few years ago, was the culmination of decades of efforts by abortion opponents, made possible by an emboldened right side of the court that has been fortified by three appointees of former President Donald Trump.

Both sides predicted the fight over abortion would continue, in state capitals and in Washington, and Justice Clarence Thomas, part of the majority, called on the court to overturn other high court rulings protecting same-sex marriage, gay sex and the use of contraceptives...

...Alito, in the final opinion issued Friday (Saturday NZT), wrote that Roe and Planned Parenthood v Casey, the 1992 decision that reaffirmed the right to abortion, were wrong the days they were decided and must be overturned.

"We therefore hold that the Constitution does not confer a right to abortion. Roe and Casey must be overruled, and the authority to regulate abortion must be returned to the people and their elected representatives," Alito wrote, in an opinion that was very similar to the leaked draft."

The credit for this goes to Trump: 

"Joining Alito were Thomas and Justices Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett. The latter three justices are Trump appointees. Thomas first voted to overrule Roe 30 years ago. Four justices would have left Roe and Casey in place."

Christians who constantly complained about Trump have been shown up again. Winsomeness didn't defeat abortion, mean tweets did, and Trump will be forever remembered as the greatest modern US president just for this one achievement. 

Nations in history which practiced child or human sacrifice often disappeared after not very long. But America has shown the practice can be turned away. Now they need to systematically make sure the practice doesn't happen across their nation. 

It's a good day. Let's see what else they can do, starting with re-correcring the definition of marriage.
