Gov Andrew Cuomo of New York needs to take some civics lessons. He seems to be clueless about how our government works. On Wednesday he said that if the Supreme Court overturns Roe V Wade, he will sue.
Exactly what court does he think he can go to for redress of his grievances? Does he not understand that any court he sues in would have to confirm the Supreme Court? Besides that fact, there would be no reason to sue because New York gets to then decide all cases involving abortions. The same thing applies to every blue state that wants the right to kill babies.
Mr. Cuomo made the odd threat Wednesday, pushing for a bill in the state legislature that would establish abortion as a right under New York state law.
That bill is being sold as preparation for the possibility that the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that made abortion a national constitutional right and a ruling that liberals believe to be in jeopardy from the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the high court.
“We now need to codify Roe v. Wade, which will actually increase the protections in New York. God forbid they do what they intend to do. I want to get it done before the Supreme Court does that because I don’t want any gaps in a woman’s right to protection. We have a better legal case when the Supreme Court acts because I will sue when the Supreme Court acts,” Mr. Cuomo said in a statement, according to Rochester TV station WHEC.
“Did he really say that? Whom would he sue, and where would he find a court able to overrule the Supreme Court?”
