    Best retort I've seen now to the "Its God's will for the pregnancy to happen," is:

    "If the pregnancy is God's will, he can have full custody."

    Roberts didn't vote to overturn Roe. Just sayin'.

    And this is just regarding the application for a stay while the full appeal is pending, so in theory none of what you said matters at this point. But since likelihood of success on the merits is a factor in deciding whether to grant a stay, that's where the bloviating will come in.

    I mean, they aren't taking that long, really. It'll have been all of a week since the request for a stay was filed, and 3 days since the last amicus brief was filed.

    What the extra two days tells me is there will be a dissent written whichever way it's going. The question is whether the majority decides to explain its reasoning at all.

    The fact it's not our yet means it could be an 11:58 pm one. And it could be that it's simply not done, yet. Lord knows they would be far from the only ones to finish things up only minutes before a midnight deadline.

    Exactly. And since this is taking a long time my guess is the Court rules the Abortion Pill is banninated.

    Kinda annoying we have no idea when the Court will issue its order today. Been checking the website every so often but nothing. At least with opinions we know when they are released so we're not left hanging all day.

    The Supreme Court on Wednesday extended a temporary stay to maintain the Food and Drug Administration’s approval of the abortion pill mifepristone amid ongoing litigation. The administrative stay will be in place until the end of day Friday.
    So, it'll be banned Friday. They love to give hated rulings on Fridays.

    It doesn't end with medicine. The violence done to the concept of standing is such that an ER doctor could sue a gun manufacturer because said doctor might, in the future, have to treat a gun violence victim.

    Or an EMT could sue Ford because the EMT might have to respond to a car accident.

    One of the very fundamental tenants of modern jurisprudence is that you must be impacted in order to sue. And in this decision, the plaintiffs lay no claim on that at all; in fact their claim is that they might have to treat a patient who could, maybe, be negatively impacted by mifestiprone.


    That's how mind bogglingly backwards this is, and to no surprise, how bonkers the 5th circuit has become for not overturning the decisio on that alone.

    There are big consequences to dismantling the medical system by having ignorant, non-medical judges insert themselves into issues they do not understand or have the training to deal with. This could be drugs, procedures, devices, equipment...

    A little snippet of what the Medical media are saying

    "If this decision is upheld, any federal judge could ban any drug -- even one that had been approved for more than 22 years and has been demonstrated to be objectionably safe and effective...."
    "Imagine this situation: a political faction maintains sexual activity should solely take place for procreation purposes.... engaging in sexual activity outside of a reproductive, marital event is a grave sin....They claim there is proof that a particular drug, meant to improve sexual performance, is hazardous and deadly....the drug may have uses for erectile dysfunction during procreative sex [but] the primary use is likely for non-procreative means. If an organization believes this drug is primarily used for non-procreative sexual activity, which they contend is evil, and can find "research" highlighting its dangers, could the organization file suit against the FDA hoping to ban the drug? Could the same be true with vaccinations? Or contraceptives? If the Texas judge's ruling stands, yes."
