Perhaps someday, people will even have debates on the Constitutionality of the courts decisions.You can reject it all day long, but the US Federal Government recognizes the SCOTUS as the final word on constitutionality. Perhaps someday the SCOTUS will overturn the current ruling or the ruling will be superseded by a constitutional amendment. Until then, rightly or wrongly, our government recognizes elective abortion to be constitutional because the SCOTUS has ruled so.I completely disagree with and reject the (your) premise that something "IS" constitutional just because the SCOTUS ruled it so.Your call out was to debate the constitutionality of elective abortion. It is constitutional because the SCOTUS ruled so. Whether SCOTUS was correct or should be challenged is a different debate. That is why I was nit-picking you about the way you framed the debate to begin with.LoL.The way you actually framed the debate (not the way you want people to deduced that you framed it) you left open to lose the debate in one "knock out" punch.>
Did you conclude that I am also happy with the ruling?
That might have been your first clue as to what the debate is to be about.
This, from the OP.
"This thread is open to all to discuss the challenge, specifics, formats, the poll, etc."
I'm happy to clarify. However, I think you are likely the only one who could not deduce what the basis of my challenge is.
The supreme Court already ruled that elective abortion is constitutional. In other words, you lose.
Now you might want to consider framing the debate in a way that you might be able to win.
So, it is your opinion that the SCOTUS is infallible, can not be challenged and can never be compelled to overturn any of their previous rulings.
Is that it?
Stranger things have happened.
