Pro-abortion groups call for SCOTUS to be abolished

Forget packing the U.S. Supreme Court. Leftists have an even more extreme idea.

Breitbart News reports that some leftists are now calling for the U.S. Supreme Court to literally be abolished. 

It’s not a joke

This story was reported by Julio Rosas of Townhall.

The calls for the Supreme Court to be abolished were made by pro-abortion groups in Los Angeles, California, during a protest held on Monday.

What members of the groups were mostly protesting is the recently-leaked draft of a Supreme Court decision that overrules the landmark abortion case Roe v. Wade. But, Rosas reports that the groups are also upset with several decisions made by the court, including its decision to not allow President Joe Biden to extend the eviction moratorium that was implemented in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

“During speeches at the rally, one speaker said Roe v. Wade going away would bring the country back to the days of women having unsafe abortions, noting the court ‘sided’ with landlords and real estate companies when they struck down the eviction moratorium,” Rosas reported.

Rosas goes on to quote this same speaker as saying, “this is why we say abolish the Supreme Court! Because we need real justice that protects the needs and interests of our people.”

That’s insane

We are not seeing too many Democrats call for the Supreme Court abolished. That is probably too extreme for even those farthest to the left.

We are seeing, however, a number of Democrats renew the push for the Supreme Court to be “packed.” In other words, a number of Democrats have been calling for more justices – usually four – to be added to the nine that currently make up the Supreme Court.

Court-packing is the left’s response to the fact that the Supreme Court now has a decidedly-conservative majority following former President Donald Trump’s nomination of Thomas Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett to the court. Court-packing would give President Biden the opportunity to nominate four liberal justices handing the court back over to the liberals.

The fact that the Supreme Court now has a conservative majority is a big problem for the political left because, as in Roe, they have been using the court for decades to bypass the lawmaking process. Hence, the push to pack the court.

But, abolishing the court – that’s is on a whole another, incomprehensible level.
