The Left-Wing Push To Pack The Supreme Court: Why It’s Necessary

Multiple Democratic congresswomen on the left have renewed their push to pack the Supreme Court after a Texas judge ruled that the state can strip funding from abortion clinics, which would close many. The ruling was issued by U.S. District Judge Sam Sparks in Austin on Wednesday. The AOC is a proposed constitutional amendment that would add six seats to the bench of justices and allow President Donald Trump, or any president, to appoint two justices at a time while they are still in office. Democratic Reps. Judy Chu of California and Zoe Lofgren of California reintroduced the legislation last week, saying it is necessary after the high court's 5-4 decision not to hear an appeal of a lower court ruling upholding laws in Louisiana and Texas

The Left-Wing Push To Pack The Supreme Court: Why It’s Necessary

What is meant by “packing the court?”

As seen in the following definition, The First Amendment Foundation explains how “packing the court” works: The First Amendment to the United States Constitution gives every citizen in the United States the right to petition the federal government for a redress of grievances and the right to a jury trial. However, no one has the right to be heard on the Supreme Court until he or she is put on it. However, “the Legislature cannot send an unfilled judicial vacancy back to the President of the United States for filling without his approval,” so a federal appeals court rules by consensus or by opinion, the seat can never be filled until there is agreement that it is no longer needed.

The AOC

in September. Sparks ruled in favor of Texas abortion clinics in a case that claims the legislature was attempting to “sideline” providers. The closures would affect two out of the state’s five abortion clinics. Planned Parenthood argued that the funding ban was meant to “punish women,” but Sparks disagreed. "The drastic effect this law would have on the women of Texas is as plain as its unconstitutionality," Sparks wrote. "Denying poor women any access to abortion not only suppresses the income of a large segment of the population, but has the potential to cause a large number of unintended pregnancies which would result in more abortions."

Why is it necessary?

The addition of new justices would have the effect of going against the concept of the “checks and balances” that are set up in the Constitution, according to a Washington Times op-ed written by Maxine Wehrum, the associate director of the University of Minnesota's Supreme Court Institute. The Supreme Court system "is designed to be deferential to a president and his advisers" so that one president may serve two terms and another may serve eight years. The Supreme Court would also decide unanimously what would be constitutional, rather than going to three or four separate decisions in each case, the op-ed added.

Conclusion

If the left wins, the Fifth Amendment would no longer protect human life, and the average tax rate on Americans would go up. There is a reason why this amendment is so important, and if the Democrats get their way, the Supreme Court and the constitution will suffer greatly. The Democrat party is waging a legal war against unborn children, and it will not stop until they get their way. AOC and the Democrats want to apply the legal theory that abortion is a form of murder, and if the people don’t want to fund it, they should have to pay for it. Once they get their way, what will happen to Trump’s next pick for a Supreme Court justice? What will happen to the balance of power in America? We need to do all that we can to fight for our rights, and not just on the political level.
