Following the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, leftists went mad and rampaged around the country. Ironically, violence arose in areas where abortion is still legal.
Even before Roe was overruled, the Justice Department ordered the U.S. Marshals Service to begin providing “round-the-clock security” at the personal residences of all High Court justices, not just the conservatives who have been threatened.
As a result of murder threats made against those who voted to overturn Roe v. Wade, security is even more on high alert.
In a concurring opinion, Justice Clarence Thomas urged that the Supreme Court should reconsider certain holdings with political ramifications in light of the Roe v. Wade decision.
He proposed that the Supreme Court’s decisions on contraception and homosexual marriage be reconsidered.
This drove the left to panic even more.
Consequently, what Joe Biden is about to do is even more perplexing.
He will nominate a pro-life lawyer to a federal office.
The Hill reported on this peculiar action:
President Biden plans to nominate a conservative lawyer who has represented anti-abortion causes to a federal judgeship in Kentucky, according to Rep. John Yarmuth’s (D-Ky.) office.
Chad Meredith, the attorney, has previously served as Kentucky’s solicitor general and represented a number of Kentucky’s top GOP officials in cases curbing abortion access and COVID-19 public health measures.
Meredith represented Kentucky’s then-Gov. Matt Bevin (R) in a 2019 legal battle against an abortion clinic, saying at one point that effectively eliminating access to abortion in the state would have a negligible impact on women seeking the procedure.
He also defended a 2017 state law requiring doctors to perform an ultrasound and describe the image to a patient before providing an abortion, according to the Louisville Courier Journal, which first reported the news of his pending nomination.
Christopher Schuler, Yarmuth’s communications director, told The Hill that White House staff informed the congressman of Biden’s intent to nominate Meredith, but declined to provide further comment to The Hill.
The Courier-Journal reported that the nomination appears to be the result of a deal between Biden and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to facilitate future Biden nominees. Yarmuth opposes the nomination, according to the outlet.
Given that a judicial position isn’t currently open on the Eastern District Court, it’s clear that this is part of some larger deal on judicial nominations between the president and Mitch McConnell,” Yarmuth told the Courier-Journal.

Meredith would be nominated amid growing Democratic anger about the Supreme Court’s repeal of Roe v. Wade, which ended the country’s constitutional right to abortion.
As a result of Roe’s overturn, a number of states have filed lawsuits in order to prevent “trigger laws” that were put in place to prohibit or severely restrict abortion once Roe had been overturned. CONTINUE READING…
