Rip Roe. And people still won't vote.


Long way to go before it's dead. If I understand correctly they can try going through the circuit courts but will ultimately get denied at the Supreme Court level if it ever gets there.

We don't know what SCOTUS will do..... And that still doesn't explain people not voting

SCOTUS is loathe to backtrack on itself so there’s not much to worry about... yet. It still has to get past the circuit court, which is also loathe to backtrack on SCOTUS rulings.

So we hope.The chief judge of my state appellate court expressed, just today, that the seeds have been sown for decades for this change. That a whole class of judges have been reared in the endeavor on overturning Roe, stare decisis be f'ed. 

 

In Kavanaugh we trust? Roberts?

 

That said, this is a ridiculously poor political play what with the upcoming presidential election: you've just empowered every non-bat-**** crazy women to turn out in 2020; so much for that desensitization advantage the GOP had.

According to Wikipedia, they have overruled previous precedent 37 times in their history. That works out to about once every seven years, perhaps not as uncommon as you think.
