The Supreme Court yesterday delayed a decision on the FDA approved drug for abortion (Mifepristone) access, sending the case back to the 5th Circuit Court, but with eventual decision by the Supreme Court.
The idea of ending access to a drug approved more than 20 years ago, based on right wing and religious dogma, is infuriating, as there should never have been any challenge to a drug that has been deemed safe and effective for a generation.
It is also disturbing that the two Bush appointees to the Court—Clarence Thomas by George H. W. Bush, and Samuel Alito by George W. Bush–dissented in the decision to keep the drug operative until later consideration.
Both Thomas and Alito are clearly the most extremist right wing Justices of the past century of time, even more than Antonin Scalia, and Thomas is also corrupt with his abuse of his position to accept gifts and favors from wealthy conservative activists, making him someone who should be impeached and removed from the bench.
These two Justices besmirch the reputation of the Supreme Court. And Alito went further in his dissent on this matter, criticizing three female Justices in the process, including Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, and shockingly, Amy Coney Barrett, accusing them of hypocrisy by name!
This gives a potential hint that by so doing this unseemly criticism of the three women justices, that they might, very well, join with Ketanji Brown Jackson (who was not on the Court until ten months ago) and Chief Justice John Roberts, to uphold Mifepristone access long term!
