15. I hope you're correct. I feel the same way.

Roberts has shown he has some, small, amount of intelligence about these things. The ACA vote was certainly a surprise. I hope that what happened is he saw what the real effects of it would be if they struck it down and so, he decided to be a human and humane.

If he steps back from all the BS rhetoric about heartbeats, pain and life-at-conception and votes to keep in place Roe he will do the nation a favor. To do anything else and return the nation to more places (because the places are there again now) where back-ally abortions are the only way would be a horrible thing. A horrible legacy on which to have his name. Years from now, when the GOP dies out from actual dying out, then his name would be as bad as that of the justices who decided Dred Scott and Plessy vs. Ferguson.

I hope the GA law is stuck down soon. The idea of them exercising control of ANY person who travels outside their jurisdiction for ANY act is pretty insane. I don't think they'd be able to pass and successfully defend a law for anything else that happens outside their jurisdiction. Think of an outright murder. They're not going to be able to charge people in GA for a murder committed in FL. They're not going to be able to charge them with conspiracy because the murderer planned the murder in GA and then went to FL for it. It makes no legal sense.

To try to charge a person with a criminal offense for a completely legal act in another state is just not going to fly in the courts. That would disrupt all sorts of things.
