SCOTUS was busy!

I’m angrier than a blogger who just witnessed the Supreme Court of The United States come out with numerous decisions this morning.  None of the decisions really affect me, so I can’t be that angry.

Some of the decisions are as follows…

  • SCOTUS ruled in favor of people charged with obstruction during the January 6th insurrection, saying that the Justice Department went a step too far.
  • The Court ruled in favor of Iowa, upholding the state’s ban in sixth-week abortion ban.
  • The Court ruled in favor Grant’s Pass, Oregon that sought to ticket homeless people for sleeping outside, saying that ticketing them would go against the Constitution.

Those are the major rulings.  And I agree with them all.

I understand that the homeless are going through personal crisis.  I further understand that most of them have nowhere to sleep.  But I also know that there are homeless shelters and there are government programs that would put a roof over their heads.

Of course I agree with any measure that will end abortions altogether.  Of course abortion is murder.  If a mother doesn’t want her baby, she can simply carry it to term and give it up for adoption.

I know of no religion that condones abortion.  The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, my previous faith, known as the “Mormon” church, bans abortions except in the case of rape, incest, or substantial risk to the baby’s or the mother’s health.  The Catholic religion, my faith, doesn’t allow abortions at all.  And that is as it should be.

I think that this term, SCOTUS has been hitting it out of the park.  Justice has been done and these wise rulings are now the law of the land.  There’s no one for detractors to appeal to and that does my cold, hard heart good.
