I am not American. I am just speaking of the trending of these issues. All of the above, some time in the future, will invoke this clause. And why not, gays did it successfully. Re Roe vs Wade. Women's rights to abortion were protected. Babies right to life wasn't protected. It's who has the numbers or who shouts the loudest that ultimately counts in the Supreme Court. And given that this court is tilting conservative, are the liberals going to respect its rulings as they expected conservatives to? I am not sure what "equal" and "rights" even means. Very subjective words. In the end everything boils down to politics - politics dressed up in high sounding phrases.
