The Supreme Court has agreed to hear a challenge to Roe v. Wade coming from Mississippi. While the corporate media has focused on abortion rights, this case poses a much deeper threat to the rights of minorities on multiple fronts. This case would use the abortion issue as a way to coronate 'states rights' at the expense of any sort of federal appeal. Without a federal level of law to supersede various state laws; wholesale discrimination could once again be the law of the land with no right to appeal.
Only Justice Sonia Sotomayor has spoken out regarding this danger to any true and diverse democracy. Killing the Roe decision sets the stage to allow state legislatures to reign over their own fiefdoms as they led up to the Civil War and the Confederacy.
This time the ultra-conservatives on the Supreme Court are poised to dismantle federal law as we know it.
