Another reason Biden is the better choice:
ABORTION RIGHTS & HEALTHCARE!!!
Trump has reportedly settled on Amy Coney Barrett for the Supreme Court nomination, so here’s a quick rundown. Barrett currently serves on the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago, where she was appointed by Trump in 2017. She has a track record of opposing abortion rights and easy access to birth control, and there’s little doubt that she would rule in favor of gutting Roe v. Wade, if not overturning it altogether.
In 2017 Barrett wrote a law review article criticizing the 2012 SCOTUS decision that upheld key provisions of the Affordable Care Act, writing,“Chief Justice Roberts pushed the Affordable Care Act beyond its plausible meaning to save the statute.” The Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on the future of the ACA on November 10, and with Barrett on the bench, that future is not bright.
At stake in the coming battle over Barrett’s nomination is the possibility of an illegitimate far-right Supreme Court that would block and roll back progressive legislation for decades to come, barring reform of the Court itself. Not to mention the more immediate threat of Trump asking the newly-formed Roberts Six to throw out enough mail-in ballots to install him for a second term—a nightmare scenario we can circumvent by burying it under an undeniable mountain of votes.
