Planned Parenthood Wins

The right to life ends at birth.

Hey guys, did you know that some of the forced-birth enthusiast Red States want to murder dead Planned Parenthood? It’s true! So here is their big, evil plan: they were gonna stop Medicaid Ameros from going to Planned Parenthood.

E-Z, n’est-ce pas? So simple even a simpleton could simply do it! And yet…

Planned Parenthood sued them, and successfully argued that selectively withholding federal funds is a violation of the law (probably a Bill of Attainder violation, but I’m no lawer).

The Red States appealed and yesterday the Supreme Court punted.

Chief Justice John Roberts and the Virgin Mayor of Keg City Brett Kavanaugh joined the Skirts and the Pajama Boys on the Court, and boy-howdy are the forced birthers mad! I mean what was the point of shoving Kavanaugh on the court if he wasn’t going to punish the Skirts and make the libs cry?

But one voice from the land of bowling jackets and frozen tundra was exuberant: Susan Collins:

“Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), one of the last deciding votes in Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation, told reporters Monday she felt “vindication” after he sided with liberal justices in deciding not to hear cases against Planned Parenthood. “I certainly do,” Collins, who reportedly supports abortion rights, told reporters when asked if she felt vindicated.”

So, the question is: Does Kavanaugh support Roe v Wade like he does boofin’ and keg stands with Squi?

“The case had nothing to do with abortion, Kavanaugh’s apparent vote not to hear this particular case does nothing to vindicate Sen. Collins’ vote for Justice Kavanaugh,” Elizabeth Wydra, president of the Constitutional Accountability Center, told CNN. “Sen. Collins’ should not breathe a sigh of relief until Kavanaugh squarely votes to support Roe.”

    Sorta like Trump’s “totally cleared” tweet from last Friday.

    Ian Millhiser over at Thingprogress is my go-to guy for trying to understand stuff like this. He sees no comfort in this PP non-decision, either for pro-life or for Medicaid advocates;

    Kavanaugh’s been very clear that he intends to kill Roe v. Wade. But the Court’s decision to not hear Andersen and Gee gives credence to the theory that Roberts and Kavanaugh want to give the nation some time to forget about how Kavanaugh got his current job before they declare outright war on reproductive choice.
    Monday’s order, moreover, is unlikely to protect Medicaid recipients from the Supreme Court for very long. In the long run, some state is bound to violate the free-choice-of-provider provision in a way that doesn’t implicate a group associated with abortion. When that happens, this very conservative Supreme Court will be free to limit this provision without doing so under the close scrutiny it will face if the case name includes the words “Planned Parenthood.”

    “When the going gets tough, the weird turn pro.” Hunter S. Thompson
    it’s why I’m “pro-choice.” And it’s also why I’m no longer an amateur crastinator; I turned pro long ago. I’d be happy to tell you all about it………..some other time.
