- Big Blue Wave takes exception to a San Francisco Chronicle headline that claims the courts are chipping away at abortion:
When a law is legislated and a court upholds the law, the court is not chipping away at anything. The court is merely upholding a law that was democratically voted. American legislatures have passed very few pro-abortion laws. When a court decides to strike down a law that was democratically voted, in spite of the will of the people, in spite of previous jurisprudence, that’s when the court is effectively legislating from the bench and chipping away at whatever it is that it’s undermining.
