Hypothetically, would it be possible to sue every conservative who comes up with these BS legislations (trying to get women to have large objects shoved into their uteri; having private information disclosed online) for human rights violations?
They can't be prosecuted for human rights violations, IMHO. (I am not a lawyer).
EDIT: I'm also guessing you can't sue the courts, right?
The United States Supreme Court held in Bogan et al. v. Scott-Harris, 523 U.S. 44, 118 S.Ct. 966, 140 L.Ed.2d 79 (1998) that local legislators (i.e. members of a city council and the city mayor) have absolute immunity from personal liability under 42 U.S.C. §1983 ("§1983" actions) when acting in their legislative capacity. Section 1983 provides civil remedies for deprivations of "rights, privileges, or immunities secured by the Constitution and laws" caused by persons acting "under color of any statute, ordinance, regulation, custom, or usage, of any State or Territory or the District of Columbia...."
The ACLU of Ohio said it will sue the state if two abortion-related bills that would restrict a woman's options for terminating pregnancy are approved by the legislature by year's end....House Bill 79 bars Ohioans from purchasing health insurance which includes abortion coverage. House Bill 125 would ban abortion at the point a fetus' heartbeat can be detected, possibly as early as six weeks after conception and before a woman knows she is pregnant.
