“I will appoint judges that will overturn Roe v Wade”, pledged Trump in 2016, This coming week the Senate will vote to confirm Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court potentially taking a huge stride toward realizing the Right’s decades long struggle to overturn Roe vs. Wade. This comes on the heels of Trump appointing a record amount of right wing judges – including 3 Supreme Court judges!- the vast majority of which the Democrats voted to confirm. The threat to Roe V Wade, and awhole raft of other reforms, is clear and present.
Indefensibly, the Democratic Party threw in the towel before it even got in the ring by refusing to wage a fight to stop the confirmation of Barrett. In fact, Biden has all but ruled out packing the court with liberal judges to offset the impact of a majority conservative court! This is in keeping with the Democratic Party’s willful failure to fight for women’s rights against the remorseless assault by the GOP. Why doesnt the Democractic Party defend women’s rights as militantly as the GOP does in attacking those rights? Will Roe vs. Wade be overturned? How can we defend women’s right to control their bodies? How were abortions rights won in the first place and what lessons can we learn from that movement today? What’s the role of socialists in the fight against oppression?
