Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg recently made comments on the Roe v. Wade decision that has some pro-life and pro-traditional marriage advocates optimistic about the possible ruling coming later this summer from the court. It’s reported that Ginsburg said: ”Ginsburg addressed the historic decision during a speech at the University of Chicago law school. By ruling that abortion was legal, the Supreme Court cut off a political debate in the states that was trending toward broader access to abortion.Interrupting a more democratic movement, Ginsburg said, gave abortion-rights opponents a single ‘target’ for the next 40 years.”
If Ginsburg is so critical of the court for ruling in such a way that removed the debate from the hands of the people and the states, it is entirely possible that she will hold the same view in ruling on the marriage cases currently being considered by the court. If Ginsburg feels this way about the ruling it is also entirely possible that swing vote Justice Kennedy will side with Ginsburg and the other conservative justices in what could be a landslide decision for marriage. Of course, this is all speculation and we will have to wait until later this summer to see what actually transpires. But Justice Ginsburg’s comments have left many nonetheless optimistic.
