Democrats For Roe – For A Supreme Court as Nonpartisan Protector of Our Civil Rights.

Democrats believe your rights to privacy are guaranteed by the Due Process Clause of the Constitution, as part of your right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” Yet, Republicans have engineered a partisan, compromised Supreme Court that has now voted to overturn Roe v. Wade, the first time in our country’s history that the Court has stripped Americans of a longstanding human right.
Andrea Klausner, Vice Chair, Southampton Town Democrats
Republicans engineered a compromised judiciary which controls our privacy rights & the legitimacy of gerrymandered districts; voter suppression laws & presidential elections.So what does democracy mean when a political minority can impose its will on the majority of Americans?
Republicans, speaking through their handpicked partisan Justices, don’t believe that Americans are guaranteed the right to privacy under our Constitution. Do you want the GOP to control your rights to abortion, birth control, inter-racial marriage or gay marriage? Because these are all privacy rights by the Due Process Clause of the 14th Amendment guaranteeing all Americans the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Don’t believe that Republicans will stop at denying women the right to control their bodies. Birth control, inter-racial marriage, gay marriage all all privacy rights that Republicans want to strip away in their attempt to remake America in their image. For a party that always espoused small government, it looks like Republicans are now the true activists for suppression of individual liberties.
First they came for your reproductive choices and birth control. Then they will come for your right to marry who you love.  What’s next? State-sponsored religion, censorship, and a muzzled press? 
The stakes could not be higher.
– A partisan, compromised Supreme Court could also strip Americans of other long-protected privacy rights, such as the right to access birth control, the right to inter-racial marriage and the right to gay marriage.
– Red state legislatures are now lining up with trigger laws so that abortion will be criminalized from the very date that the Court’s decision becomes official.
– A compromised Supreme Court can also guarantee that Republicans stay in power despite the popular will. They will likely be called upon to rule on voter suppression laws, fair and free elections and even who wins the next Presidential election.
 Republicans complain of liberal activists, but actually they are the true activists. They are actively engineering laws to remake America in their own image – a white, Christian, male controlled society where women and people of color are second class citizens and wealth is concentrated in the hands of the richest Americans.
