After the latest SCOTUS abortion ruling, I couldn’t stop thinking about Reagan and wishing we could have a president like him again.

Why Is Donald Trump Silent On SCOTUS Abortion Ruling?
By Joe Cunningham From RedState-
The man who is supposed to represent the values of the Republican Party as their nominee, Donald Trump should have plenty to say on today’s abortion ruling. It is, after all, a bigger sign that he is supposedly the cure-all to a liberal Supreme Court. But, alas, Donald Trump has no opinion on today’s ruling.
If Justice Antonin Scalia were still alive, it would have made no difference, but with expected judicial retirements sometime in the next presidential term, a chance to replace, say, Justice Ginsberg would be a big plus, and could make the court solidly 5-4 or even 6-3 in some cases, depending on Justice Kennedy’s temperament.
This should surprise no one who has paid any attention to Trump’s past, from the recent past where he’s said he’d fund Planned Parenthood and that they provide excellent services, to the more distant past, where he’s called himself pro-choice. Trump is exactly the type of guy who would support abortion. But, he won’t even admit that, either.
Donald Trump is a coward.
Dubbed a recent convert to Christianity by evangelical leaders, Trump has worked to build in-roads into the Christian community. They should, in turn, expect him to condemn the ruling. After all, it took mere minutes for Hillary Clinton to praise the killing of the innocent as a Constitutional right everyone should have access to, and Trump is as prolific on social media as they come. Surely, he should have something to say. But he doesn’t.
He is scared to death of losing his support in the evangelical community. By opening his mouth and letting what he really thinks come out – because he is a man with no filter and no moral guidance whatsoever – Trump risks the highest profile supporters he has fleeing from him just as Republican leaders have. The man sees his polling, and he knows it sucks. He in many cases isn’t breaking forty percent in the polling, which is absurdly low for a major party candidate.
Trump is unqualified to lead Republicans if he can’t stand up for one of the most fundamental parts of the Republican Party platform.

Senator Ted Cruz just delivered a blistering rebuke of the 5-3 SCOTUS abortion decision which was handed down this morning. Cruz, who Planned Parenthood has called “the biggest threat we face”, continues to unashamedly stand for life.
Cruz said on FB:
“The #SCOTUS ruling in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt is profoundly disappointing. Texas enacted HB 2’s commonsense health standards to ensure that women receive safe care.
Unfortunately, the Supreme Court sided with abortion extremists who care more about providing abortion-on-demand than they do protecting women’s health.
This decision will not silence our fight to protect the most helpless and innocent among us, nor will we cease our efforts to protect women from an abortion industry that prioritizes profit margins over improving the safety and health of Texas women. We will continue to stand resolutely to defend unborn life because we know that every life is a gift from God, and without life there is no liberty.”
Cruz is spot-on. The SCOTUS decision did nothing but protect profits over life. This is the abortion industry’s main goal.
As expected, Justice Anthony Kennedy was the swing vote in today’s abortion decision. Kennedy, a Reagan appointee, has been an absolute disappointment, especially in the area of protecting life.
So long as we have fierce defenders of life on the national stage like Senator Ted Cruz, the unborn will always have a voice.
