    Maybe they can strike down Civil Rights Act of 1964 while they at it. That'd really Make America Great Again! Heck lets abolish the ERA while we're at it and call it a day.

    They will be able to attack contraceptive use, same sex marriage, and interracial marriage on the same basis (due process under the 14th Amendment).

    States will be able to force women to bear the children of their rapists or those conceived from incest. Good luck to women in red states.

    And now a barricade has been put up around the SCOTUS because why? It's the Anti Abortionists who've always been the violent ones--maybe to keep the Pro Lifer Party from spilling over into the chambers?

    America is crumbling so rapidly. Fucking terrifying.

    Waiting for Trump '24. What a nightmare.

    Oh, and a hearty "fuck you" to RBG and her supporters for allowing her to stay on the bench til death. Craven monsters. Another "fuck you" to Susan Collins for supporting Kavanagh's confirmation on the basis that he considered Roe settled law.

    Also, the drunk grabass and the Evangelical psycho were both involved in stealing the white house with the original insurrection in 2000. The next chud ininsurrection could be successful.

    Pack the SC and neuter it. Any other suggestions?

    Ah, the GOP. Always concerned about the sanctity of life…until the kid is born. Then it’s time to for that little shit to pull himself up by his bootstraps and get to work. Don’t be looking for any help because if you’re really a good red-blooded Murikan, you’ll rise to the top with your inherent Murikan greatness.

    It's now a class issue. Rich women will continue to have access to abortion, poor women won't.

    But hey, maybe if everyone bands together and elects another do-nothing, maintain the staus quo type of Democrat, the country won't devolve into civil war?

    I'm black-pilled. Anything that accelerates bringing 10-15% of the country into the streets in protest is a good thing. 28% of the country is behind on their utility bills, and Biden has been stacking that interest on student loan repayment, up from $1.6T to $1.9T in just a few years. The collateral damage is staggering.

    My wife is not at all surprised, and while part of me saw this inevitable, I still can't help but be floored at how regressive this is. Collins went so hard on the idea that Kavanaugh would never vote this way. How shocking that someone who could easily vote contrary to statements made while trying to be confirmed ended up voting in a way that was clearly consistent with his ideology! I will never understand RBG staying on when this outcome seemed inevitable if she did.

    Going back to the "would you live in a red state" discussion, most things are not impactful enough to make it a total deal breaker, but this certainly is. I can't imagine being a woman who had the option of moving staying in a state that made illegal all abortion. And cue the massive increase in crime rates in a couple of decades when all the unwanted, uncared for children that get forced into the system. This is what a lot of people voted for, and they must be overjoyed right now. Trump will definitely be taking credit for it and it could very well propel him to a 2024 comeback.

    There are apparently several states who have abortion 'trigger' laws, that should roe ever be overturned--Abortion becomes completely illegal in that state.

    We used to think Idiocracy was fiction, looks like it's that with a nice helping of Handmaids tale. All set in Leave it to Beaver-land.

    100% in agreement with ALL of this. RGB had too much ego and assumed that she could beat cancer and live for another 30 years. Look how that turned out.

    My only hope is that this produces a tidal wave of Blue in the Mid-Terms. Vote the fuckers out and expand the Court...they've already proven they're essentially a branch of the GOP.
