Such a bizarre country. Couldn't possibly wear a mask, because freedumbs, but damned if they are going to give women the freedom to choose what to do with their body.

An unintended consequence might be to mobilise apathetic people to vote against the GOP

Probably cause even deeper problems by causing exodus from states with draconian laws, leaving them in the hands of the republicans for presidential elections…

The people who this affects most probably don't have that option. Minorities, those who simply can't even afford a trip to a State that has not criminalised abortion. I watched the cable news today, and the point that cut deepest was that all the justices who produced this decision lied in their confirmation hearings. These are the sort of people who came up with the decision.

What I’m saying is that your middle/upper middle class who are stronger democrat supporters will move states to places with sensible laws for their children. Leaving those states they left harder to turn away from Republican.

I think the calls for impeachment of a few of these Justices on the grounds of perjury have a pretty good case... not sure they have it legally, not an expert but its very clear they deliberately lied in thier confirmation hearings.

I dont think they'd have the **** balls to do it, but they should at least try
I keep saying this, but at some point the Democrats have to actually do something. Expand the supreme court, pack the courts, eliminate the filabuster, ram through some meaningful legislatation on things like gun reform, voting rights, womens rights... if the GOP and their soulless ghouls overturn it next time they're in power so be it, but at least you can go to sleep at night knowing you tried, that you went down swinging.

It's pretty damming that all three were specifically asked about Roe at their hearings, and all three inferred that it would not be touched. No moral compass. Not what you want from a judge sitting on the bench of the highest court in your land, but perhaps representative of a reasonable proportion of the US population. It's been obvious for years that we are watching the death throws of an empire.

Sounds like the kind of thing that would be impossible to prosecute.

People really need to pay attention to politics stop voting for **** stupid, selfish, and occasionally downright evil people.

For me it is more disconcerting how political the judiciary is in america.

It makes me appreciate the judiciary here in australia.

It’s going to get a lot worse than Roe v Wade, they’ve spoken about looking at same sex marriage and sodomy cases, currently looking at one regarding state rights with voting which will essentially make voting meaningless, we’re watching the fall of Rome.

Too little to late unfortunately, this Supreme Court will hold sway for decades to come and the Democrats are too gutless to do anything meaningful. I heard a savage but apt analogy earlier, Republicans are the mass shooter and Democrats the cops waiting outside the school too afraid to go in.

Mixed reports. No vital signs but apparently revived at the hospital. Looks grim.

He was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead. He was then transferred to a better hospital where his status was upgraded to alive.
