    As a lawyer (NOT A CONLAW EXPERT) I always thought (back in law school when I thought about anything interesting - late 90s) that a cogent legal argument could be made to break down Roe and every case based on its reasoning, I just hoped and prayed we as a society would never get THAT FUCKED UP to try. It fucking kills me that this country has regressed so far, just fuck everything that brought us to this point.

    Impossible to talk to prolifers about it because their entire belief system is based on a feeling/belief not logic or science

    If I FEEEL that life begins when an egg is fertilized and my specific deity says to me in my book (he doesn't) that eggies are sacred etc there is NO TALKING TO ME

    Fuck all of this and fuck the court and fuck the feckless weak dems etc etc

    The thing with pro lifers is if you actually cared about abortions, the world with the fewest abortions is one with free contraceptive, free medical advice, and loads of education... but guess what, they aren't for those things so it again makes me think you don't really care

    I hope anyone who was on the fence are finally starting to understand how truly bad this is going to get unless these people get the push back from the general population that scares the shit out of them into understanding these beliefs won’t be tolerated. They will take everything from you and this is not an exaggeration they’re are dead serious

    He’s trying to say that gay men have no say about a woman’s abortion because he thinks he’s cleverly turning around liberal sayings on a lib.

    But of course the gay man wasn’t commenting on abortions. He was commenting on what comes next - Obergefell

    I think it's likely it's just some conservative clerk who is worried the 5th vote is squishy and wants to make sure it's locked in. the media response focused on the leak feels predetermined in that way.

    I heard a really good theory that this could be a conservative justice leaking it to avoid Roberts joining the majority and writing a softer opinion for them since he would be able to assign the opinion.

    The opinion writer is assigned at conference, so if Alito is writing it, Roberts didn't do that

    Kav going concurrence and just saying 15 weeks or whatever is the new Casey always seemed more likely than Alito’s nuclear option

    but I guess only Roberts and not Alito can see the potential damage being done
