In a stunning ruling, the Supreme Court sided with the Trump administration and took the country back to the dark ages by stating that the government has the authority to prevent women from obtaining birth control.
The new wave of anti-abortion laws suggests that a post-Roe America won’t look like the country did before 1973, when the court case was decided. It will probably be much worse.
There is little doubt that the Trump Administration will nominate — and force through — another extremely conservative justice like Neil Gorsuch. And that’s not just bad news for the LGBTQ community. It will most likely set back women’s rights, voting rights, and every marginalized group in this nation who relies upon the Supreme Court to live up to those four words etched into the building’s western pediment: “Equal Justice Under Law.”
When you think about “the best and the brightest,” the people you want to govern America, Trump, along with his cast of incompetent misfits on his cabinet, don’t even come close. They represent the worst of the worst, and are causing America to be flushed into the basement of history.
