Media Eager to Point Out That South Carolina’s ‘All Male’ Supreme Court Upheld Six Week Abortion Ban
The decision is sound but to distract from the facts and reasoning the media and left have to focus on the all male Supreme Court.
I guess according to The Hill, Associated Press, Axios, and others only care when an all male Supreme Court upholds abortion.
The outlets are all too eager to point out South Carolina’s “all male” Supreme Court upheld the state’s six-week abortion ban.
WHY is that important? Oh, yeah. The legal reasoning behind the decision is sound. It was the correct decision. But the media and left have to keep the outrage. It just so happens the South Carolina Supreme Court consists of only males.
Um, an all male SCOTUS ruled in favor of Roe v. Wade.
Remember, men. You’re only allowed an opinion or vote on abortion if you agree with it.

I don’t care if you’re male or female. I applaud anyone who votes in favor of life.
The left only cares about a male’s abortion opinion or votes if he favors abortion.
From The Wall Street Journal:
The 4-to-1 decision effectively reverses a ruling from earlier this year, in which the court had struck down a so-called fetal heartbeat bill, banning abortion in the earliest weeks of pregnancy on the basis that it violated a privacy guarantee in the state constitution. The decision significantly reduces abortion access in South Carolina, one of a few Southern states that had maintained robust abortion access.
Justice John Kittredge, writing for the majority, said that while the six-week ban “infringes on a woman’s right of privacy and bodily autonomy,” it was the role of the state legislature to make policy decisions. Lawmakers determined that a woman’s right “does not outweigh the interest of the unborn child to live” after a certain point in pregnancy, he said.
“Through the legal and judicial lens under which we must operate, while mindful of the difficult and emotional issue before us, we cannot say as a matter of law that the 2023 Act is unreasonable and thus violates the state constitution,” Kittredge wrote.
