  1. Roe undermined our institutions by ignoring the law and process to come to a desired conclusion. Overruling it, like Plessy and Dred Scott, starts on the path to reclaiming credibility. This is demonstrably false. Roe used BC authorities in its ahistorical attack on the Constitution. Actually reading and following the text of the document you are interpreting seems kinda important to me. But I guess it can be annoying when you only want a theocratic dictatorship to codify any rules you want regardless of the law. The unborn humans who will no longer be killed in some states, of course. Did you really not know that?
  2. This is the really crazy thing. The US is in a small group of countries which allowed abortion until birth (with Vietnam, North Korea, and China). Striking down Roe and Casey doesn’t change that…it merely allows some states to choose to take a different approach which will put them more in line with the rest of the democracies in the world.
  3. I’m sure this will be huge in China!
  4. This statement. The ignorance and racism are just off the charts.
  5. I agree, but I’d let the “break the influence of the NRA” bullet stand.
  6. The Democrats? I don’t think it’s fair to lay this at their feet just because they support killing children, advocate for violence against political opponents, and stoke racist and identitarian hatred.
  7. There are a few problems with this statement. First off, it is not a right to kill your child. Second, women make up half of the population, and about half of them are pro-life, so even if we were in bizarro world and killing your child was a right, only 25% of the population would be potentially effected. Also, recognizing that there is obviously not a right to kill unborn children in the Constitution won’t affect potential pro-abortionists in many states as many will allow it to remain legal to kill a fully formed human life even as it is being born, despite the opposition of about 90% of all Americans.
  8. I think that many regularly use the facepalm and pissed off threads to drop in political attacks that are affirmed by echoes rather than try and make a supportable point in SOCN.
  9. This is true, but of the people attacking Thomas, not Thomas’ responses to those attacks.
  10. The shooter claimed to be a former communist who now described himself as a left-wing authoritarian (which is redundant), and a green nationalist.
  11. The person who first posited this criticism (not you, I assume) is either extremely ignorant of the law or misrepresenting the argument for maximum frothing effect. Roe and Casey found that abortion was a fundamental unenumerated right by virtue of the 14th and 5th A’s due process clauses (i.e., substantive due process). This argument itself is of dubious legal quality, but even it is obviously not applicable for abortions. This is, partially, because in order to be a “fundamental right” the right has to be deeply rooted in American history and traditions, including in common law. The majority in Roe argued that it was, similarly doing a deep dive that went back not only to English common law, but to Hippocrates, Aristotle, and St. Augustine. To overrule the law, Alito must confront this reasoning from Roe. Alito’s opinion points out the obvious: the right to an abortion is not only not deeply rooted in American history or traditions, laws to outlaw abortion were. He brought up that example as one of many, many examples of how his argument is obviously right.
  12. Even with all the problems that Lorraine was going through, she would still reach out to me to ask me about my father’s health and to let me know she was praying for him. I can’t say I knew her well, even for an internet friend, but she was obviously a caring and loving woman, and I can’t help but feeling that we’ve all lost something which made our world a little brighter.
  13. He didn’t berate anyone. He told kids why he thought they shouldn’t wear them and then told them they could do what they wanted. You should stop believing headlines from news organizations which have made a living out of lying (hint, it’s all of them). His actual quote was, "You do not have to wear those masks. I mean, please take them off," DeSantis was heard saying. "Honestly, it's not doing anything, and we've gotta stop with this COVID theater." "So if you want to wear it, fine, but this is ridiculous," he continued, sighing into the microphones. Exactly. As I said, he didn’t berate anyone and told kids why he thought they shouldn’t wear them and then told them they could do what they wanted.
