The South Dakota state legislature has passed an entirely irrelevant resolution calling on the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v Wade. They plan on mailing it to them, but now they’ve got this wonderful idea of maybe hand-delivering it to the court in person.
The Legislature’s resolution asking for the Roe v. Wade abortion decision to be reconsidered and overturned might be carried by hand to the U.S. Supreme Court, the lawmaker behind it said Tuesday.
Rep. Roger Hunt, R-Brandon, said a copy of the resolution would be sent to the clerk of the U.S. Supreme Court on the assumption that copies would be made and distributed to the nine justices.
But Hunt said a copy of the resolution could be hand-delivered by advocates in a presentation at the U.S. Supreme Court building in Washington, D.C.
“They may be some pro-life people from the D.C. area. It takes a little money to travel,” he said. “We’re thinking about it. I don’t know how it will work out.”
Well I’m sure that will make it 100% more effective, especially since it will be 0% effective as it is. Seriously, do they not think that every single justice on the court has their mind firmly made up on the subject? Do they really think that they’re going to magically change their minds on this? The court is insulated from the influence of public and legislative opinion for a reason.
