Jim Nelles writes for the Washington Examiner about the political left’s rising antagonism toward the U.S. Supreme Court.

The Left is throwing yet another temper tantrum. This time, their anger and hatred are being aimed at the Supreme Court.

It’s easy to see why. From overturning Roe v. Wade, ending legal discrimination in college admissions, to affirming free speech rights by saying religious creatives cannot be forced to publish messages they feel violate their religious beliefs, and telling President Joe Biden that he cannot simply wave a magic wand and forgive student debt, the Supreme Court has become a major roadblock for the Left’s agenda. To remove it, the Left has decided to smear the Supreme Court as illegitimate.

In a poorly written opinion piece in the Los Angeles Times, Harvard professor Michel Lamont argues that the aforementioned decisions “deprive relatively disadvantaged groups — women, black and brown Americans, LGBTQ+ people, and lower-income college students — of legal and other resources that improve their welfare as well as their sense of belonging. More than just ‘who gets what,’ the court’s rulings affect who feels recognized as a worthy member of our society.”

Let’s unpack this one decision at a time, shall we? First, the Dobbs decision did not outlaw abortion. It returned the decision about abortion back to the states, where it belongs.

There is no constitutional right to an abortion, as even leftist scholars know. The late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, for example, disliked Roe v. Wade, calling it a “faulty decision.” She believed that the decision was too far-reaching and too sweeping, giving pro-life activists a very tangible target to rally against. She said, “My criticism of Roe is that it seemed to have stopped the momentum on the side of change. Roe isn’t really about the woman’s choice, is it? It’s about the doctor’s freedom to practice … it wasn’t woman-centered, it was physician-centered.”
