By the end of June, the Supreme Court will release a decision in its blockbuster abortion case, Dobbs v. Whole Woman’s Health. If President Trump’s three Federalist Society-approved appointees don’t lay waste to Roe v. Wade, then go ahead and write the conservative legal movement’s obituary. All those seminars, speakers, and subsidized lunches—and for what? Some modest trimming around the edges of the Administrative State and Congress’ Commerce Clause power?
Set that defeatist thought to the side for the moment. Assume Justices Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Barrett don’t blink, and that they deal a death blow to Roe. Instantly, abortion will be illegal in more than a dozen States. And that’s that, right? Not exactly.
Woke Kapital, the constellation of left-wing, Globalist American Empire-aligned, state-connected businesses, is not about to leave Red State America alone to govern itself. Look at the corporate response to Texas’ abortion law last year. The ride-share app Lyft decried Texas’ law as “incompatible with people’s basic rights to privacy, our community guidelines, the spirit of rideshare, and our values as a company.” Sensing Roe’s days might be numbered, Business Forward, a left-leaning Chamber-of-Commerce-style group (or do I repeat myself?), published a piece in Fortune last summer encouraging corporate leaders to “call and meet with elected officials at all levels to let them know that abortion restrictions, including bans and trigger laws, have a negative impact on the current and prospective workforce in their state.”
