THIS IS A TEST: HOW MANY SUPREME COURT DECISIONS HAVE BEEN OVERRULED BY SUBSEQUENT DECISIONS? 1, 2, or 3?
ANSWER: NONE OF THE ABOVE
CORRECT ANSWER: 240—Reference: Table of Supreme Court Decisions Overruled by Subsequent Decisions
The ONLY Supreme Court opinion that will probably never be overruled by the Supreme Court is Marbury v. Madison.
“Decided in 1803, Marbury v. Madison established two cornerstones of constitutional law and the modern judiciary. These are: Federal laws that conflict with the U.S. Constitution are invalid, and Judges determine whether federal laws are unconstitutional.” Learn more here.
Two myths were established ostensibly as though constitutional:
- SCOTUS has the sole power to determine whether an Act of Congress is constitutional, and
- The Supreme Court is a co-equal branch of government with the Congressional and the Executive branches of government.
Effectively, SCOTUS established itself as a law-making body. What sayeth the Constitution?
Article III, Section 2: “In all the other Cases before mentioned, the supreme Court shall have appellate Jurisdiction, both as to Law and Fact, with such Exceptions, and under such Regulations as the Congress shall make.”
At what time in the history of the United States of America did Congress empower the Supreme Court by an Act of Congress to decide the constitutionality of an Act of Congress?
What was the legal flaw in Roe v. Wade?
Is pregnancy an issue of a mother’s health? No, the gestation of you and my fellow humans is a natural process, as natural as breathing.
SCOTUS opined that a woman has a right to abortion based on the rights of women and women’s health. What about the rights of the 31,000,000 women murdered in their mothers’ wombs?
Abortion-on-demand is neither a health issue, with limited exceptions, nor an issue of supporting a woman’s natural rights.
The Abortion-On-Demand industry is a business. A BIG business.
The abortion of live, unborn babies did not begin with the flawed Roe v. Wade opinion; it was going on thousands of years before Jesus Christ was formed in Mary’s womb. So have other forms of murder, but SCOTUS has not seen fit to opine that one man outside his mother’s womb has a natural right to murder a fellow man outside his mother’s womb.
