Roberts voted with the libs.

I've been a student of the Court for quite a while.

My guess is that, in the end, the Court will not uphold this law, though figuring out the dynamics of this court is proving difficult. There seems to be a lot of politicking that takes place within the Court. It's a Roberts thing.

ACB, and I've been consistently right about her, doesn't seem to be interested in the sort of radical judicial philosophy that guided Antonin Scalia, her mentor.

There may be some sort of very narrow ruling that upholds it.

    The most troubling part of this Texas law is that people who otherwise have no standing can sue. That is a terrible and nonsensical legal precedent. Where does that end? If you post a disparaging remark about Joe Biden will I be able to sue you for libel?

    Apparently, Texas courts have nothing better to do than to process a shit-ton of vexatious litigations that are trying to stop healthcare providers from offering patients a Constitutionally protected procedure.

    Asshole Christian theocrats and the asshole politicians who desperately need their votes don't care what they have to do to impose their asshole religious dogma on our society.

    I totally agree with the above Donna post...

    ...since I was the one who wrote it.

    I have to admit that I don't understand that part of the law but, apparently, it's considered to be a way to attempt to avoid federal courts.

    Donna and po,

    You seem to be getting silly over this theocracy thing.

    You should note, however, that nuthin in this law attacks the Roe ruling. Even under Roe, abortion can be regulated...and it is in most states.

    "You should note, however, that nuthin in this law attacks the Roe ruling. Even under Roe, abortion can be regulated...and it is in most states." -Mr. Straw Man

    Already noted. And not mentioned, because it was not at all relevant.

    They are trying to do an end run around the federal courts with this cockamamie bullshit.

    They have made it legal for anyone (standing, schmanding) to sue any provider, or employee of any provider, who provides abortion services after six-weeks. If anyone served with such a summons does not respond to it, they automatically owe the one suing them $10,000 plus court costs.

    The intention is to make it so onerous for anyone to perform abortions, or even to work for anyone who does, that they simply stop offering this Constitutionally protected service. Roe v Wade, Schmoe v Wade.

    Effectively making abortion available only to wealthy Texas women.

    And FUCK what the Constitution allows and protects.

    Come on, Southerners! you can surely figure out some way to get around the Constitution and get slavery back up and running again...!!!

    It reminds me of the extreme measures people involved in the Underground Railroad to save the lives of slaves.

    HA! It would.

    Since you are so incapable of making an equitable comparoison or even understanding what one is

    .


  10. by HatetheSwamp on September 2, 2021 9:21 am

    Equitable comparison.

    I am. Clearly, you're incapable of understanding.


  11. by Ponderer on September 2, 2021 9:28 am
    I didn't say that you couldn't spell it.

    And you are in no position to know how incapable you are of it, since you don't understand what one even is. I totally get that you think you're making one. But you are very laughably not.
