The Biden administration is at odds with the Supreme Court for refusing to hear an emergency appeal to block the Texas abortion ban. Not only is Texas the first state the Supreme Court has permitted to ban the practice since 1973, the Texas law carries a $10,000 fine for anyone convicted of performing or aiding a woman in acquiring one. Meanwhile the court is hearing oral arguments in December on a Mississippi case that could very well gut the Court’s long-standing abortion ruling Roe v. Wade in the spring.
All this has the Biden administration flustered, considering the expansion of the court, providing Biden the ability to pack it with a new liberal majority. Is the Supreme Court’s job to protect citizen rights from government overreach or an insurance agency, protecting the interests of the political elite?
