I can’t quit thinking that the Citizen’s United decision is wholly responsible for all of this.
In case anyone didn't read the article here's another absolutely bonkers quote from a guy whose wife is basically a qanon believer and partially responsible for Jan 6.
Republicans hated Roe so much and “couldn’t live with it” so they spent 50 years inventing “textualism” to justify stripping rights for people. And created the Federalist Society to ensure it would eventually happen.
Suck my dick, you insurrectionists piece of shit
This isn't someone who understands democracy. The government should 100% give outcomes people like
This is a take
Her brief can be perfectly summed up in just 14 words
Wait? that's not a joke?
Don’t these Republicans know that the more babies born, the more children that end up sex-trafficked in Wayfair filing cabinets?
But doesn't the market demand abortions?

Babies are livestock is what that’s implying
Interesting pod with SCOTUS Blog founder (Former Stanford Law prof)…listening now and good so far
Used to listen to this pod, but unfortunately got overran by Peter Thiel and Tucker Carlson’s best bud David Sacks
In what way
Where did you get this, I like it
Hmmm….it’s usually 3 Dems (Chamath, Jcal, Frienerg) vs Sacks (R). They lampoon him pretty regularly.
But fair enough - FWIW he’s not talking at all, Chamath getting them to explain how the judges misled Congress in their testimony right now
https://nfyi.org/51-useful-aging-ou...how, many,care will become instantly homeless.
I never hear any pushback from them when he spouts off ridiculous shit. And Sacks whines incessantly so I gave up. It started out really good with fun tech and market info and has slowly morphed into full on right wing discourse for 2 hours. Anyways I won’t stuff up this thread with podcast nonsense

That’s a felony in some states. Not that a politicians family will ever face consequences tho.
should dems also bend over and spread?
You gotta play to your strengths
Ds are perpetually grabbing their ankles so that shouldn't be a problem.
Missouri is also making it illegal to go out of state for an abortion, so that’s off the table.
So are mothers.
Not for him/her.
Not sure how that is a legal law.
I love that no commentary on this issue discusses that “pro life” people have sex before they’re ready to have a kid and if there’s a pregnancy they absolutely would get/push for their partner to get an abortion. We all know it happens but it’s never discussed.
