Little Andy Flunks Roe V. Wade

Little Andy, b/k/a New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo, may new have never opened a law book, but he never passes up a chances to lead a parade or to make an ass out of himself, the Washington Times [1]:

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is warning the Supreme Court: We’ll sue you.

Mr. Cuomo made the odd threat Wednesday, pushing for a bill in the state legislature that would establish abortion as a right under New York state law.

That bill is being sold as preparation for the possibility that the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that made abortion a national constitutional right and a ruling that liberals believe to be in jeopardy from the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the high court.

Where is Little Andy going to find a lower court willing to sue the Supreme Court of the United States? Even if he could, what standing would Little Andy have? Roe v. Wade did not legalize abortion. Rather the decision made it illegal for the several states to ban abortion, in theory before the third trimester. Abortion was already legal in several states to include New York State. In fact New York City was called the Abortion Capital of the Nation. Reversing Roe would not make abortion illegal. Rather it would return to the several states their rightful constitutional power to regulate, or ban, the procedure. Little Andy spend more time with the Law and less on publicity stunts.
