A Right-Wing Court
With President Trump’s first nominee, Neil Gorsuch, already on the bench and Brett Kavanaugh nominated for a second seat, the U.S. Supreme Court is being pushed even further to the Right and real people suffer. In its last term, the right-wing majority on the Court issued rulings that continue to weaken our democracy and threaten individual rights, including:
Trump v. Hawaii: This decision upheld Donald Trump’s discriminatory and unconstitutional Muslim ban.
Janus vs. AFSCME: Overturning years of precedent, the Janus ruling used the First Amendment as a weapon against working people and their ability to effectively organize to protect their rights on the job.
NIFLA v. Becerra: This case was decided in favor of so-called “crisis pregnancy centers” that spread anti-choice misinformation about abortion and create roadblocks for women seeking abortion care.
