Unsurprisingly, the Supreme Court's liberal justices reaffirmed their devotion to legal abortion. Church Militant's William Mahoney explores the deeper problem ignored and perpetuated by mainstream media, academia and government.
Yesterday, liberal Justices Kagan and Sotomayor voiced concern a change in the Court's direction on abortion would be seen as purely political, discrediting the Court.
Sotomayor is ignoring the particular problem at the heart of America's present culture war, namely, people disagree on empirical reality and fundamental values.
The differences are often expressed as political positions, but they are really opposing worldviews regarding good and evil.
The fundamental choice is between embracing truth or rejecting it, replacing it with lies. The latter can be seen in the redefinition of marriage, gender and even life, with commonplace abortion and its increasingly commonplace cousin, euthanasia.
The Declaration of Independence recognizes every human being's God-given natural rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. But the cultural Left has recorded life and liberty, making liberty primary, and redefining its meaning and purpose.
Freedom is not an end in itself, but rather the ability to choose good over evil. The pro-abortion movement calls itself "pro-choice," glorifying freedom for freedom's sake, while ignoring that some choices are bad.
This disoriented mindset extends to a plethora of other issues, like the Fairfax County Public Schools' recent return of pornographic and pedophilic books to the shelves for 12-year-old children to read.
In the end, the so-called progressive movement is only progressing along the wide road to perdition.
Fake Catholic Sonia Sotomayor was nominated for the Supreme Court in 2009 by staunch pro-abort president Barack Obama. In the 2015 case Obergefell v. Hodges, Sotomayor joined the 5–4 majority that rendered so-called same-sex marriage the law of the land.
