Watching Roe Go (Open Thread)

As you’re doubtless aware, the United States Supreme Court is hearing arguments in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case right now. If you’re an egg-bearer, chances are the court’s religious fanatics will remove your constitutional right to bodily autonomy this term.

My guess is they’ll strike down the insane Texas pregnancy bounty hunter law (which is in effect right now and drastically altering real people’s lives in all kinds of ways) as a ruse to make a decision to uphold the Mississippi law seem more “moderate.” This court’s conservative fanatics are exquisitely sensitive to suggestions that they’re activists who are using raw judicial power to overturn precedent when it benefits Republicans and drive an unpopular conservative agenda.

I look forward to Justice Sotomayor’s fiery dissent.

Open thread.
