    My shock isn't that they're overturning Roe (because they said they were gonna), it's how broad that draft is. Gorsuch and Roberts both voted that the civil rights act protects LGBTQ persons and seem unlikely to overrule Obergefell, so the fact that every major civil rights decision in the last 50 years including those are apparently up for grabs is disconcerting.
    Yeah, I noticed that as well. And so did many other people who read the decision. There were thoughts that they may narrow it to just the 6 week ban across the board. This is sweeping. It is throwing out everything.

      The trolls have seemingly won.
      It's ugly but not at all surprising. I just hope Ds can stop looking for the Charismatic Leader solution and start figuring out what is necessary to win local and state elections. They can hand out torches and pitchforks too.

        I think the broadness of alito cruelty is exactly why it was leaked

          I was being a smarta—. I’d say she’s an SDD on that scale.

            The rumor was they wanted the woman to write it. The fact that they picked Alito is enlightening.

                  Uh, oh. That means they're all in. This is Roberts legacy.

                  EDIT: Read his statement. He's going with this isn't the decision but it's true line. As slippery as Susan Collins that one is. He thinks we're stupid.

                    By then, they won't be able to do anything. Their vote won't matter anymore. Only who the Repubs decide who won the election.

                    • I'm assuming the QAnon people are furious about this ruling, as it will flood the foster system, a system ripe for abuse and trafficking when no one is watching.

                      Yup, any minute now.

                          That's why Drew likes her, and votes for her. "She's just like me!!!!"

                          • If SCOTUS overturns itself on Roe it means the Federal government never had the power to decide this issue. Then, the issue falls under A10, specifically,

                            "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."

                            It becomes a State issue, and it's easier to move states than move countries if you don't like the laws.

                            Call your state representatives* and let them know it's coming if you are ... concerned (<-- that was for you rufus).



                            *Assuming you even know what state district you're in and who represents you.
                            The preceding post may contain trigger words and is not safe-space approved. <-- Virtue signaling.

                              No, he's going with, "it's an authentic copy of a draft, but it's still just a draft." It's always possible someone changes their vote late (ie Roberts with Obamacare as a prime example), or more likely that the more vitriolic language in the opinion gets tampered down prior to it being released.

                              But I'm still not discounting Roberts himself being the leaker.

                              • The right largely got away with sacking the Capitol, so where are the leftists to storm SCOTUS and assault cops and smear their sh*t on the walls? After Jan 6, surely that would be an acceptable response with no consequences whatsoever.
