I will occasionally add new items but for the most part we will repost “the best of the best” — the stories our readers have told us they especially liked.

By Dave Andrusko Over the decades since Justice Harry Blackmun unleashed the Roe v. Wade pestilence, periodically you will read stories, occasionally the bulk of entire books, which maintain that Blackmun was essentially a dolt whom other justices had to help reach his abortion-on-demand conclusion. One of the earlier “inside the court” books was, “The …Continue reading "Greenhouse celebrates the late Justice Stevens “who helped protect a woman’s right to choose”"
By Maria V. Gallagher, Legislative Director, Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation Editor’s note. This is excerpted from a post that appeared on the blog of the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation. It is all the more fascinating in the re-telling. I am talking about the unprecedented drama that surrounded the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh as a Justice on the …Continue reading "Abortion at Heart of pro-abortion assault on Brett Kavanaugh"
By Dave Andrusko It had long been rumored, but now it became official. One year ago today, following the end of the term, Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement from the Supreme Court , effective July 31, 2018. Of course we knew what was coming next. Those of us greybeards vividly remembered the successful …Continue reading "The retirement of Justice Kennedy, one year ago today"
Editor’s note. The following is a Facebook post from Prof. Robert George. The headline is mine. We’ve already posted six stories on the Supreme Court’s ruling on a 2016 Indiana abortion law and will again today. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is irked. She’s irked at her colleague, Justice Clarence Thomas. Why? Because Justice Thomas refers …Continue reading "Justice Ginsburg’s reading of Justice Thomas is tendentious, question-begging, and incoherent"
Editor’s note. We’ve already run multiple posts on the Supreme Court’s handling of a 2016 Indiana law in which the Justices overruled the 7th Circuit and said the part of the law requiring humane disposal of aborted babies was permissible but chose not to address another part of the law which banned eugenic abortions. The …Continue reading "Supreme Court Justice links abortion and eugenics"
By Dave Andrusko We posted two stories yesterday explaining just a portion of the Supreme Court’s Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky decision in which the Justices voted to uphold one part of a 2016 Indiana abortion law while laying over for another day the second part. I’d like to revisit in depth …Continue reading "Five Takeaways from Tuesday’s Supreme Court decisions on abortion"

Justice Thomas offers powerful criticism of eugenic abortions By Dave Andrusko Pro and anti-life groups had waited for months for the Supreme Court to address two provisions of a 2016 Indiana abortion law. This morning the Justices punted on a law that banned abortions (in Justice Clarence Thomas’s words) “when the provider knows that the …Continue reading "Supreme Court upholds one part of 2016 Indiana law, waits for another day to address second"
By Dave Andrusko Editor’s note. This ran December 20, 2018, and offers background to today’s Supreme Court order. The headline to a story that appeared on the Facebook page of an Indiana television station is (to pro-lifers) both unsurprising and amusing: “State Leaders Not Giving Up On Reinstating Blocked Abortion Law: Attorney general’s office asks …Continue reading "Indiana asks Supreme Court to uphold ban on eugenic abortions and requirement of humane disposal of aborted babies’ remains"
By Dave Andrusko For four decades National Right to Life has been at the eye of the abortion hurricane, acting as the calm, disciplined center of pro-life politics, education, and legislation. That was never more on display than twelve years ago tomorrow when, on April 18, 2007, the United States Supreme Court upheld the federal …Continue reading "Twelve years ago tomorrow the Supreme Court upheld the historic ban on Partial-Birth Abortion"
