The SCOTUS announces women are equal to men.
 
2021-09-02 12:18:46 AM  
Sooo the law stands?
 
2021-09-02 12:19:05 AM  
Well fudge.
 
2021-09-02 12:21:37 AM  
A, I thought this was last night.

B.  5-4 not blocking the ban is Roberts with the liberals?

I'm so confused.

Corporations have more rights than women?

Nevermind, I read it incorrectly.  Some strange word parsing.

Roberts is a conservative asshole, not a religious fundie asshole.

In Texas, a virus has more reproductive rights than a woman

"Make no mistake: Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett are responsible for ending Roe v. Wade. Chief Justice John Roberts explicitly announced that he would block Texas' law. Kavanaugh and Barrett cast the decisive votes allowing the six-week abortion ban to take effect."

Maybe NOW the Democrats will expand the courts before even more damage is done....

NARRATOR: No, they didn't.

Best decision I ever made.

Ta da.
Now what are you going to fight to ban?

Third party protest voters- this is on you.
 
2021-09-02 1:49:04 AM  
What should happen, now, is the filibuster is nuked, so Congress can get to either expanding SCOTUS to at least 11, or term limiting them to twenty-five years with no grandfather clause.  I say this because if it was 5-4 to allow Texas to become Gilead, only two new Justices or removing Clarence Thomas via immediate term limitation would be enough to make it 6-5 or 5-4 to force Texas to be a part of the 21st Century.

What will happen is the Democrats will fumble the football, again.

Also, the others voting for gives him the opportunity to vote nay without consequence.

Most citizens don't want the court expanded. Maybe they'll change their mind now.

To do this while most of the country is sleeping is asinine.

If I was a healthcare provider in Texas, I'd get the hell out right now.

Frivolous lawsuits from deep pockets are coming.

What consequences would a justice with a lifetime appointment face?

You're not saving babies. You're torturing women who don't have money.
 
2021-09-02 2:14:46 AM  
Evil bastards. We know they don't care about the preshhusss bayyybeezz! so what's their point? Did women really cause these men so much pain, or fear, in their distant pasts that this is how they achieve revenge? Assume high office and pass laws against them?

(I can't explain the women who support this.)

Seriously though Hillary and her supporters screwed the pooch, but it's fun to post buttery males memes.

If nothing else, this pretty much permanently nuked Texas' economic prosperity.

I'm a native Texan. Raised in Houston, live in Austin now, if you know my handle well enough. I have to ask though.

If you're a well-educated woman, why on Earth would you live here? You wouldn't.

And that matters. That really matters. Because for all the companies that are moving here, their HR companies have to ask two basic questions.

1. Can they keep the lights on for everyone?

2. What is the health care situation?

If you can't depend on the health care, what the odds that you will get the brightest minds to move here. Newsflash: You won't.

Greg Abbott is so full of what's right, he can't see what is good.

And subsequently starving those same babies.

What will happen is that Denocrats will continue to bow and curtsy to their masters while paying lip service to the idea of a more perfect union.

Fark you, Joe and Kyrsten.

sigh, it doesn't mean it'll stand, it means people will have to go through a lot of difficulty and lawyers will make a lot of money, the citizens tax money will be spent on untold courts' time and just unnecessary trouble all around, like with all the other garbage laws being passed anymore.

Women who live in Texas need to vote with their dollar and gtfo of Texas.
Also the rest of us need to limit our spending on texan businesses.
Supporting toxic policies needs to be toxic to your business.
the only way to fight the fundies is to leverage big business against them.

If people was intelligent, they would stop having sex just to make law makers look stupid.

Republican whackjobs spent the last 40 years voting in every single election to make this happen. They didn't go off and sulk and vote Nazi third party or something just because all they got from Republicans some years was one or two whackadoodle judges and a video call into an anti-abortion conference. They kept voting and started electing kooks at the lower levels too. And look where their relentless grind of Vote Red Until Abortion Is Dead got them.

Gonna be like the old days when there were friendly states and unfriendly states and pregnant girls had to marry their cousins in the South to avoid shaming their families.
