President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani often employs bizarre defenses in his attempts to vindicate his client.

Most of the time, he spouts these defenses (or lack thereof) live on news shows, but on Thursday, it was Giuliani's op-ed in the far-Right Daily Caller that began raising eyebrows.

As the Supreme Court prepares to hear the case of Medical Services LLC v. Gee—a grossly restrictive anti-abortion law in Louisiana—Republican lawmakers are urging the Court to consider overturning Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court ruling which gave women the right to terminate a pregnancy.

Thirty-nine senators and 168 House members submitted an amicus brief urging the Court to side with an earlier ruling from the 5th Circuit, which found that the Louisiana law didn't put an undue burden on people seeking abortions by requiring doctors to have hospital admission rights at a hospital thirty or fewer miles away.

The 14th Amendment of the United States Constitution is pretty clear when it comes to the citizenship status of babies born on the country's soil:

"All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside."

Gerrymandering—the practice of deceptively drawing congressional districts to give one party an electoral advantage—has plagued American democracy for over a century. Boundaries are drawn illogically for the sole purpose of including voters of one party in order to give that district a partisan hold.

In the United States, the unethical practice has largely benefitted Republicans. Just last month, the majority Republican-appointed Supreme Court ruled that the federal government can't intervene with partisan gerrymandering at the state level, despite gerrymandering producing an overwhelming amount of Republican state legislatures.

Americans across the country were concerned when news broke that President Donald Trump was seeking options for including a citizenship question to the 2020 United States Census through an executive action, despite a Supreme Court ruling blocking the question's inclusion.

Even for Trump, openly defying a Supreme Court ruling seemed unbelievable.
