With the Supreme Court leaving in place a Texas law that is literally a Taliban-style outrage that allows your neighbor to put a bounty on your head if you are a woman who might have an abortion, this compromised court deserves expansion.
Stare decisis, a Latin phrase meaning, ‘let the decision stand’ was the foundation of the legitimacy of the nation’s highest court, and was the only remaining fig-leaf masking it as a purely political institution.
This decision casts the tradition of stare decisis to the wind. The Roberts Court has earned a concomitant response.
Incidentally, several members of this court came close to perjuring themselves in their confirmation hearings by saying they recognized Roe versus Wade as binding precedent. My level of surprise? Zero.
