and SC was non-political when?


Perhaps you're too young to remember, but there was a time when people could look beyond their political affiliations and act in the good of the country rather than the party.

I don't know. How old were you when Roe vs Wade was decided? I don't know about you, but as much as I want abortion to be legal, I've never understood how it follows from the constitution.

I am sure SC justices didn't use to be as partisan, but I am sure it's been highly political for a while. I find it hard to distinguish SC opinions from sophisticated motivated reasoning, except that the former have consequences.
Obviously we have a recall bias in favour of the assholes. -helene_t

I was 22 when roe v wade was decided

You have to take into account that SC judges are political appointees. The political issue is a matter of degree.
