@Dante Alighieri @la verdad prevalece Not sure about this proposed legislation, how it would work. Presumably, the Tenth Amendment has been upheld. It says that whatever powers are not specifically enumerated to the federal government are reserved to the states, and since abortion is not mentioned in the Constitution, it is something the states have the power to regulate.

@Dante Alighieri @la verdad prevalece Not sure about this proposed legislation, how it would work. Presumably, the Tenth Amendment has been upheld. It says that whatever powers are not specifically enumerated to the federal government are reserved to the states, and since abortion is not mentioned in the Constitution, it is something the states have the power to regulate. So now the Congress wants to regulate abortion instead of the Supreme Court (that's something they always shied away from since they never had the votes). I am not sure how that is any different than Roe. If the case goes to the Supreme Court again, won't the Court rule that Congress went beyond its constitutional powers in trying to pass a law regulating abortion and encroaching on states' rights? No article I've seen so far has addressed this question.

@Dante Alighieri Well, first, things seem to be different now with the Trump Court. Second, apparently the most used "Joker's Wild" card used by the Supreme Court nowadays is the Interstate Commerce Clause. I guess since Planned Parenthood is interstate and nationwide, they might have used that to decide Roe, but chose not to. Good. But the Tenth Amendment was ALWAYS the reason why Roe was …More
@Dante Alighieri Well, first, things seem to be different now with the Trump Court. Second, apparently the most used "Joker's Wild" card used by the Supreme Court nowadays is the Interstate Commerce Clause. I guess since Planned Parenthood is interstate and nationwide, they might have used that to decide Roe, but chose not to. Good. But the Tenth Amendment was ALWAYS the reason why Roe was unconstitutional. And most people never even heard of it. Now it is back in play. Most of these harpies think Roe was overturned because the Court is made up of a bunch of Jesus Freaks and were voting based on religion. I read an interview years ago with now deceased (and devout Catholic) Justice Scalia, who was allied with Justice Thomas. He made this argument and lived in Maryland. The interviewer asked him, well if Roe is overturned and your state Maryland voted to permit abortions (which was likely), what you do? Nothing, he said. That is the way things are supposed to work in our federalist system. Each state decides. He was a Constitutionalist.

Corinthians 11,
26] For as often as you shall eat this bread, and drink the chalice, you shall shew the death of the Lord, until he come. [27] Therefore whosoever shall eat this bread, or drink the chalice of the Lord unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and of the blood of the Lord. [28] But let a man prove himself: and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of the chalice. [29] For …More
