Judiciary Must Not Legislate: Pass An Abortion Law In The USA. Roe v Wade Was A Masquerade

June 24, 2022

It is not for the judiciary to legislate. The judiciary is in charge of implementing and adjudicating the laws. Laws are passed by the legislature (supposedly representing “We The People”).

In the US, the Supreme Court stepped in, and nine senior men with a mostly Caucasian appearance, 50 years ago, passed a judicial opinion masquerading as a sort of law enabling some sorts of abortions. 

This is not how  representative democracy with separation of three powers is supposed to work. This violation of basic constitutionality set a dangerous precedent where the Supreme Court displaced Congress to write sort-of-laws. 

Since then, one can see the mood of replacing laws voted, or not voted, by legislators being created, or overruled by the judiciary in other domains, for example guns… With disastrous effect; it should not be SCOTUS which decides what sot of guns people can carry. 

Far from promoting democracy, legislating through diktats of the judiciary is not just unconstitutional, it’s demeaning, infuriating, it makes people turn away from the law and it creates a general fascist mood, as We The People gets in the habits to have a committee of nine decided what is legal, or not… Instead of having more than 500 representatives decide. 

Worldwide, more than 50 representative democracies have passed laws on abortions, using a standard vote in the Parliament. Those laws are remarkably similar. One could call them collectively, the abortion law: abortion at will, no question asked until 12 to 14 weeks, after that, medical opinions, and restrictions, steer abortions (including by considering the psychological state of the mother). The idea being that, once the fetus is viable, it’s not the private property of the carrier of said yet-to-be-born baby, 

The US must do the same on a national level… And there will be no problem. In these 50+ democracies which passed the abortion law, abortion is not controversial (anymore). 

One of the reasons that the Judiciary must not legislate is that it is very bad at it (having others things to do, and other inclinations).

In its abortion decision, of 1972, SCOTUS confused unanimously… life and privacy. Certainly the privacy of someone stops where the life of someone else starts.  Just as the motion of one’s fist must stop where someone else’s nose starts…

Romans used to have the right to kill their child, no question asked. Now, thoughtful laws prevent them to do so. That’s progress. All culturally advanced countries have an abortion law (details do not vary much among US peers). Why can’t the US pass one? Too busy being tribal?

Supreme Court Of US (“SCOTUS”) in 1972. Those 9 mostly white oldish men decided that abortion was a right to privacy, and exceptionally stupid decision… Which led millions into error regrading human life: somebody’s life is not somebody’s else, “right to privacy”.

Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr., writing for the six SCOTUS judges of the majority, said that a Mississipi law was OK, and that Roe and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, the 1992 decision that affirmed Roe’s core holding, should be overruled.

Roe was egregiously wrong from the start,” Justice Alito wrote. “Its reasoning was exceptionally weak, and the decision has had damaging consequences. And far from bringing about a national settlement of the abortion issue, Roe and Casey have enflamed debate and deepened division. It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.”
