Mississippi asks the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade (CNN)

Mississippi asks the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade (CNN)

Mississippi's attorney general told the Supreme Court on Thursday that Roe v. Wade was "egregiously wrong" and should be overturned as she urged the justices to allow a controversial law that bars most abortions after 15 weeks to go into effect.

"The conclusion that abortion is a constitutional right has no basis in text, structure, history, or tradition" state Attorney General Lynn Fitch told the justices in a new brief, launching the opening salvo in the most important abortion-related dispute the court has heard in decades.

...


After years of chipping away around the edges, the frontal assault arrives.

1. Here we go.

I doubt they'll be successful, but they'll be smearing their lies around like monkeys throwing feces at the zoo.

Mississippi. They must have tossed a coin with Alabama, and won. They've been waiting a long time for this.

4. Why do you doubt they'll be successful?

 

I have full expectation there's enough votes at the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v Wade.

She certainly fits in another catagory though and I can't write it here or the DU jury will nail me. The closest I can get is WINO (woman in name only).

Not seen since 1860.

I will be onboard in Michigan with a ballot proposal to put a woman’s right to privacy in our state constitution.

34. Politically, it is probably one of the worst things they could ever do to themselves.

I think it would tend to wake up a lot of younger, non-voters, especially women, and get them motivated. Certainly our party would do all we could to make it so.

5. The GOP manipulation of the SC composition was to overturn Roe V Wade

Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Barrett were appointed because the GOP thought they would be capable of overturning Roe V. Wade. Many will be surprised if they along with Thomas and Alito don't overturn it, sooner rather than later. The only question is whether Roberts will join them.

For one, imagine how many more would be alive and not have succumbed to Covid.
For another, American democracy would not be under threat by Trump and his Party.

12. They can shut their opportunistic mouths & own their part in this devastating blow to human rights.

 

For starters.

"Women's Right are Human Rights, once and for all"
1st Lady Hillary Clinton

"Women's rights are human rights" is a phrase used in the feminist movement. ... Its most prominent usage is as the name of a speech given by Hillary Rodham Clinton, the First Lady of the United States, on 5 September 1995, at the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing.

Who sought to demean, ignore, mock & omit it from the credentials of the ONE 2016 candidate who foresaw the damage ahead with our SC.

THEY CAN NOW PROUDLY OWN THIS RESULT.

I am livid.
The impact of their blatant ignorance & dirty play is immeasurable.

35. Certainly, that's been their aim for 40 years.

When it comes to Republicans and supreme court nominations, abortion has been their one and only issue.


OK, and maybe guns, but to a much lessor degree.

6. When Hillary Clinton, 2016, tried to warn voters of this very urgent need to hold tthe SC,

 

She was mocked, vilified, scorned & her name, her life of women's & human rights advancement was buried under denigrating memes & slogans.
Just as the same struggle shown throughout the entire history of women against the authoritarian patriarchy of men, & unbelievably..the women who opportunistically jumped on that clear silencing of generations of struggle, by dragging this one woman's name thru the dirt.
SHAME ON YOU ALL.

And where did it all get us today?

OWN THIS SHIT. YOU ESPECIALLY MEDIA.


Here it is. Read It.

And I can name a long list who'll loudly screech after today, " Women's Rights!!"
They'll grab hold of that populist campaign slogan, send out fundraser$ & never utter a word of their part in the devastation of past & future generations.

Nor will they ever utter a word for the one woman who warned & foresaw the consequences of an SC lost to ignorant, shortsighted self-promotion.

They hand delivered it to the tRump christofascists.
THEY CAN NOW PROUDLY OWN IT.

There is no bright side.

19. when are the bone heads

going to learn what Federal Law is for.

It there to stop the argument amongst the states when the cannot come to a consensus.

Same thing about same thing marriage.

This state wants A, another wants B, another wants nothing to do with it.

So the Feds have to come in and level the fields.

We are the United States of America not a Bunch of Disassociated States.

Example ONLY:
Military couple get same sex marriage license.
Now that have to relocate to a base in Floriduh.
Oops, no same sex marriage in a red state.

So to make it fair, it has been written in the law that those of legal age can marry who they want.

Why are rich white men against abortions when they will never have one.

27. Looking at how many precedents SCOTUS has overturned...

Roberts court on abortion

While it has not overturned Roe, the court under Roberts has twice rolled back abortion-rights protections that had previously been supported by the Supreme Court. In the first, the court allowed a federal ban on the late-pregnancy procedure called partial-birth abortion (Gonzalez, 2007), the first time in the post-Roe era that the court banned a particular procedure. It reversed a ruling from seven years prior when the court under Chief Justice William Rehnquist had rejected a Nebraska ban on partial-birth abortion (Stenberg, 2000).

More recently, the Roberts court threw out a Massachusetts buffer law that kept protesters away from clinic entrances (Coakley, 2014). A Colorado limit on protesters had been approved in 2000 (Hill). Three judges called for throwing out Hill, altogether, but the liberals joined the conservatives in finding that the buffer was so large it violated the protesters’ First Amendment rights.

In its most recent abortion case, the court said Texas had gone too far with restrictions on clinics and doctors (Whole Women’s Health, 2016). Several cases are pending that could allow judgments on restrictions, or provide a window for overturning the law altogether.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2019/05/21/how-often-does-supreme-court-overturn-precedents-like-roe-v-wade/

SCOTUS has made 17 abortion decisions in 46 policies.

I hope SCOTUS justices examine data on states' abortion laws.
How any state can still get a SCOTUS hearing is beyond me.
