Jim Hightower lists this sequence of recent right-wing domination of U.S. Supreme Court decisions

This came from www.hightowerlowdown.org in relation to the leak of the U.S. Supreme Court’s upcoming decision overturning the past half century of women’s right to choose abortion:


With the leak of a draft Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. Wade, the right-wing takeover of the Court has now smacked us in the face. Meanwhile, Hightower has for many years preached about the particularly un-democratic nature of the Court – an unelected body of nine sitting in judgment for 340 million — and we thought we’d share some of our “greatest hits” on how we got here.

Brush up on your Supreme knowledge here:

And if you’re looking to support organizations still fighting like hell to keep abortion legal and safe, we recommend getting in touch with the National Network of Abortion Funds. They can direct you to organizations near you who need your help. There’s still a chance to sway the final ruling — and to pass federal legislation that will affirm that every woman has a right to choose.

We’ll see you out there on the battlefield. Keep agitating!
