    a bored person should quote every time someone from the lawyer gang on tmb said overturning roe was hysterical and not something we'd ever see

    would be a long list!

    Among other things, this law seemingly raises gigantic 1st amendment issues, but I guess that doesn't matter to the 6 majority members of the court.

    I'm confused by how quiet things were over the last 72 hrs. Was anybody making noise about this? Jfc

    I assume it’s a nothing burger since no one seems to care from the judges to the media to the activists. Hell not even racist conservatives add cb

    The quicker people realize the supreme court is a partisan political arm used to discretely push a conservative agenda, the better.

    At least they're all lawyers though!

    Soto is like the only decent justice we have left and I get what she's trying to do here.

    But this is hilarious. Constitutional interpretation is political and always has been. SC Justice brain is some shit

    Don’t need abortion because we can place babies in overflowing adoption shelters where they get abused and mistreated and get to live with the torture that their parents didn’t want them for the rest of their life.

    Sounds great.

    And the state of Miss. argument was "abortion costs $600, contraception is cheaper" Lets not talk about the cost of child birth....In one of the cheapest states we still were out of pocket $3500 with insurance.

    With the passage of House Bill 999 in 2011, public school districts are required to adopt and implement a sex education policy—either “abstinence-only” or “abstinence-plus”—and a sex education curriculum approved by the Mississippi Department of Education.

    The 2011 Mississippi’s Sex Education Law (Miss. Code Ann. Section 37-13-171) mandated for the first time that public school districts adopt a sex education policy. The law also contains implementation requirements all school districts must follow, such as separation of girls and boys for sex education classes, parents having to opt-in their child for sex education classes, and not allowing physical demonstrations on how to apply contraceptives, including condoms.

    roberts is trying to float that compromise because he knows there is a nonzero chance that the supreme court ceases to exist if they overturn roe v. wade.

    i would be fine if the court was abolished tomorrow. no clue why it's acceptable for 9 dickheads to decide shit like this for the rest of the country under some guise of nonpartisan learned judges. they're all hacks. on both sides.

    If Trump wins I could easily see one of the first things he does is somehow abolish the SC especially if the Jan 6 thing makes it there and they rule to release the documents.
