And Justice For ALL… in the context of “The sanctity (holiness) of its precedents (laws protecting women’s rights) and of the rule of law…”
Below is an excerpt from a CNN article which is not surprisingly strongly in support of the liberal Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor. It speaks of how Sotomayor strives to “restore rights to disempowered people.”
If you stop and think about this statement in the light of Sotomayor’s strong support of Abortion Rights, you hopefully see the “extraordinary” level of hypocrisy and lunacy that surpasses imagination.
I would only ask these simple questions:
Is a baby in the womb a separate living being?
Why doesn’t Sotomayor fight for the rights of the most disempowered beings on planet earth – The unborn child?
Do all of these who consider their laws protecting women’s rights as holy also consider the murder of an unborn child to be holy?
These Bible scriptures come most relevant in the perverted unjust world we now live.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor: ‘There is going to be a lot of disappointment in the law, a huge amount’
(CNN) — Days before the start of a tumultuous term, and after the Supreme Court justices divided bitterly over a Texas law that bars most abortions after six weeks, Justice Sonia Sotomayor warned an audience of law students about the frustration of having to write dissents.
“There is going to be a lot of disappointment in the law, a huge amount,” she said Wednesday at an event hosted by the American Bar Association. “Look at me, look at my dissents.”
No one expects the 67-year-old justice to be in the majority in those cases.
“She is crafting arguments for future advocates, she is creating these road maps for how to restore rights to disempowered people,” Columbia Law School’s Alexis Hoag said at a recent event sponsored by the liberal American Constitution Society. “I’m looking for lengthy dissents.”
Last April, Sotomayor acknowledged that she was writing for the future at times. “Maybe,” she said, “a later court will understand I was right.”
George Washington University Law Professor David Fontana — who once dubbed Sotomayor the “People’s Justice” — took to Twitter recently to highlight her role after the court’s majority allowed the Texas law to go into effect.
Sotomayor has chosen a different path,” from Chief Justice John Roberts and others who are more moderate in their dissent, Fontana wrote. “Better to push and develop and alternative perspective by your vote rather than sacrifice the microphone.”
“The Court’s order is stunning,” Sotomayor wrote at the time. “Presented with an application to join a flagrantly unconstitutional law engineered to prohibit women from exercising their constitutional rights and evade judicial scrutiny, a majority of the Justices have opted to bury their heads in the sand.”
Sotomayor added: “The Court should not be so content to ignore its constitutional obligations to protect not only the rights of women, but also the sanctity of its precedents and of the rule of law,” she concluded.
Last term, Sotomayor dissented in more than half of the divided cases for the third time in eight years, according to statistics compiled by Scotusblog.
