Ketanji Brown-Jackson Disaster

During the second day of her already contentious Supreme Court confirmation hearings, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson stunningly refused to define what a “woman” is, in any sense of the word deferring instead to scientific experts. Her non-answer has left Republicans aghast at the notion that she could conceivably rule in a case regarding abortion, challenging the Roe v. Wade ruling.

Asked to define the word “woman” by GOP Senator Marsha Blackburn, the left-leaning jurist replied,

“I can’t…I’m not a biologist.”

Blackburn immediately shot back incredulously,

“The meaning of the word woman is so unclear and controversial that you can’t give me a definition?”

“Senator, in my work as a judge, what I do is I address disputes. If there’s a dispute about a definition, people make arguments and I look at the law and I decide,” Jackson added, reiterating the methodical judicial approach she has historically applied.

Granted that the transgender dispute has intensified, some Republican politicians are worried about the future adjudication of instances handling gender identity, since some are most likely to end up on the Supreme Court docket soon. As a nominee to the Supreme Court, Jackson will continue to deal with examination over her opinions on a variety of social problems important to conservatives, consisting of abortion, transgenderism, as well as racialized public institution educational programs.

During the Tuesday confirmation hearing, Blackburn pushed Jackson on critical race theory and whether it should be outlawed in public schools. Republican Senators are likely to attempt to scrutinize Jackson on her position on abortion in the coming days.

“The fact that you can’t give me a straight answer about something as fundamental as what a woman is underscores the dangers of the kind of progressive education that we are hearing about,” Blackburn said. She cited the NCAA championship last weekend, where transgender athlete Lia Thomas outperformed and out-placed multiple female swimmers, some former Olympians, stripping them of their chances of advancing to finals.

“What message do you think this sends to girls who aspire to compete and win in sports at the highest levels?,” the senator asked.

Blackburn also examined Jackson about her stance on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, which challenges the criterion established by the site abortion situation Roe v. Wade and also which is currently on trial.

“Do you commit to respecting the Court’s decision if it rules that Roe was wrongly decided and that the issue of abortion should be sent back to the states?” Blackburn asked.

“Whatever the Supreme Court decides in Dobbs will be the precedent of the Supreme Court. It will be worthy of respect in the sense that it is the precedent. I commit to treating it as I would any other precedent,” Jackson replied.

In the last few of years, numerous Republican-dominated states, significantly Florida as well as most recently Iowa, have passed or enacted legislation forbidding the inclusion of born males in women’s sports at the K-12 and also college levels. However, Republican Governors in Indiana and also Utah unexpectedly vetoed such legislation today.
