Women should carry handguns and protect themselves from any robed individuals that smell like natty ice.

Republicans are just evil and want  a evangelical theocracy. If religion is now allowed to dictate law they should at least have to pay income tax

I'll just go ahead and pencil "mailing abortion pills to Texas" in my crime spree to do list, somewhere below "steal Guiliani's box of wine", but before "streaking at Mar-a-lago"

Since this decision was leaked a couple of months ago they'd have been dumb not to have had articles ready to go. Just the same way all newspapers and news shows have obits of famous people ready to go.

And TFA is right. Fifty years ago there was no electronic paper trail for states to search. No smartphone, no tracking data, no search history, no health tracking apps etc. And all unprotected by HIPAA and much of it not even needing a search warrant.

If they can force you to remain pregnant it's a short trip to deciding whether you must get pregnant or even IF you're allowed to get pregnant.

The price of gas versus fundamental human rights is something to see what happens in the fall. Dems pickup 6 in the Senate and increase majority in the House is my bet on how this taking away a right about 1 in 4 women have used and at least 50% of women know someone that controlled their own personal health care decision.

sympathetic doctors might prescribe abortion pills for any menstruating person

If you're menstruating doesn't that mean you're not pregnant

You're a lot more hopeful than I am. The energy about this will fail when the TV ratings slip and the coverage goes away. People will see those prices every day though, and the TV will never get tired of saying how no one's doing anything (pointing at democrats).

I suspect we'll lose the House, probably by slim margins, and we might gain two in the Senate - PA and WI, and defend in NV, AZ and GA. But with out the House, not much can be done.

The backlash in the suburbs is not known yet but that actual harm being done will be well known by this fall. It is a dog that caught the car moment for republicans.

I think the Democrats will gain one seat in the Senate, and then Sinema will immediately switch to the Republican Party. Because that's just how this farking timeline goes.

I hope this cranks up the voting numbers for 18-22.  I would think college kids would, in general, be in favor of legal abortion.

The Supreme Court also invented that right. The right way to do it is through constitutional amendment. If TFA is right, and we're talking 2/3 support in this county, and amendment should be imminently doable.

If I was still in my child bearing years I'd be abstaining from this day forward.

I'd make sure to date only republicans and after I let them spend a bunch of money to date me and they felt it was time I should "put out", I'd bluebell the hell out of them only to say "I can't risk getting pregnant and no, a condom isn't enough protection, so sorry, but feel free to write to the Supreme Court expressing your dissatisfaction,"

The tax rate from 1973, the year of the original, is about double of today.   Why not just revert for the whole experience.

Not always. A lot of women have a final period before they know they're pregnant.

It is just not about abortion, it is should that gay guy you know be arrested and jailed or should kids be taken away from parents trying to act in the best interest of a child. This is the start of a theocracy if not slapped down in the fall

And let's be very clear about this: This isn't hyperbole. We KNOW it's true because many of them do not hide it. They make very clear that they feel the U.S. should be a Christian nation driven by Christian mores and Christian laws, governed only by Christians (and many of them act on those beliefs).

This isn't a matter of interpretation. They come right out and TELL us this. And they're not just a handful of fringe loons in obscure positions. It's a common sentiment across the entire spectrum of conservative officials.

Talking about the theoretical society these people want, perhaps we as a society got too complacent and started taking those depictions as jokes or exaggerations meant for entertainment.

Thing is, they weren't initially meant to be memes or jokes. They were warnings.

The road we're going down should frighten all thinking people.

An amendment requires 3/4 approval of the STATES, and what the people want isn't a factor. If 13 states totaling less than 10% of the populace decide an amendment isn't happening, then it isn't.

I was a national delegate for the RNC convention twice pre 2000 and the republican party no longer represents the views of people that believe in personal privacy and rights. Heard W in 92 and said I'm out.
