    As soon as a "reasonable" challenge can make it to the SCOTUS, probably.

    Summer 2023 it'll be decided upon. Depending on how the rest of the year/elections fall out will decide how it goes.

    Homosexual marriage has been pushed on children in classrooms since it was legalized. We need to think of the children, and keep them away from such horrible things. Your Honors -- we need to abolish laws that permit our children to be forced to deal with this awful lifestyle choice.

    And another story of a woman who had to cross state lines for life-saving medical care. Eerily similar to the ad that was recently cut about the couple expecting being told their child wouldn't survive more than a few painful hours but that there was simply no medical care that the doctor could provide thanks to Gregg Abbott.

    No chance of the baby surviving. Health of the mother at risk. Still forced to travel for medical care, and then have the ashes shipped back home.

    Republicans just want to torture families that experience health complications during pregnancy.

    Another one.

    Because of Texas abortion law, her wanted pregnancy became a medical nightmare

    At this point, doctors in pro-life states, will only perform medical abortion when women are in critical life-threatening condition. Which is not how medical practice works. In both cases, the procedure should have been performed much earlier. When the risk to the mothers was much lower.

    We've already got early data on what happens when you deny women medical care. No, not from this SCOTUS decision, from the TX law, SB8, that allowed individuals to sue providers and anyone who was involved in "aiding or abetting" abortion services in civil court.

    Delayed treatment due to the abortion laws led 57 percent of patients to experience serious health complications — nearly double the number of complications experienced by patients in other states who were able to get immediate abortions.

    “Although limited by sample size, our findings offer a glimpse into the possible not-so-distant future,” the study’s authors concluded.
    Now they admit the sample size of 28 patients is small, but it's a sign of what's to come as care providers try to navigate complex laws the expose them to a lot of potential legal/civil liability simply for trying to do their jobs and provide health care for women.

    Because, as a reminder, it's never been about "protecting life", and it's always been about taking bodily autonomy away from women.

    But it does point to something that I think needs to be hammered home at every opportunity. Abortion access isn't just about the nefarious Leftist desire to destroy families by allowing wanton sluts to sleep around with no consequences. Families that wanted and valued the life they were creating are forced into horrific situations because of this shit.

    I guess it doesn't matter, though. Appealing to the alleged humanity of these legislators doesn't work in the case of children being mowed down in their classrooms, so it's not like it's going to work in this situation, either.

    Also the frequency of these stories really puts into perspective how relatively common catastrophic pregnancy complications can be and, again, highlighes how fucking stupid and short-sighted the blanket abortion bans are without dedicating a single goddamn brain cell to understanding how modern medicine even works. Though these are the same dumb fucks who think the COVID Vaccine has a genocide killswitch in it and all but demolished Stem Cell research because aborted cells may have been used at some point.

    And in today's Republican self-owns, Matt Gaetz attempt to bully a bodily autonomy activist has hilariously backfired, resulting in the teenager raising over $200K for health care access for pregnant women.

    Which is weird, because you'd figure Gaetz would be into teenagers given the investigation into him for child sex trafficking, but I guess he's a picky pedo.

And he'll deserve it, fuck Roberts. I hope he still wakes up in a cold sweat, hearing the flush of the toilet from the lawyer making oral arguments in front of the SCOTUS over the phone while taking a shit.
    The court hasn't had any legitimacy for decades now. They literally gave the election to Bush.

    Again, as a reminder, it's never been about "protecting life" and always been about controlling women. This also impacts men, however -

    On Wednesday, Republican Sen. Joni Ernst (Iowa) blocked Democrats’ attempt to bring their bill to codify the right to contraception to a vote in the Senate, delaying progress on the legislation that 195 House Republicans voted against last week.

    The Right to Contraception Act would enshrine federal protections for access to contraceptives like birth control pills, IUDs, condoms, and more. It passed the House last week with the support of all Democrats and only eight Republicans, with widespread GOP opposition suggesting that the party is preparing to launch attacks on birth control access.
    Her objection?

    Ernst falsely said that the bill includes unrelated provisions to fund abortion providers and abortifacients — claims that that the bill’s proponents say are patently untrue.
    Because there are no such provisions in the bill at all, it's just an abject lie. The closest they could argue? Republicans simply want to do everything possible to make every sexual encounter between consenting adults as risky as possible, despite there being extensive education programs and preventative measures that ensure that consenting adults can safely engage in whatever sexual activities they so choose in the privacy of their homes.

    Pretty much, and it does jive nicely with the "Nobody wants to fuck us!" memes about conservative men finding themselves ostracized by women on dating apps, plus the jokes of, "Ladies, if he tells you he's not political at all he's actually a conservative with awful opinions that he's realized won't get him laid."

    That teen that was mocked by Matt Gaetz for "looking like a thumb" and being to ugly to potentially need abortion services? The one that raised over $200K for reproductive rights?

    It's up to $725K now. Thanks, pedo Matt Gaetz.

    Indiana AG Todd Rokita is still investigating Dr. Caitlin Bernard, despite her following the letter of the law and reporting the rape of the 10 year old girl who had to cross state lines to travel for abortion services and violating no laws.

    Apparently there are six "consumer complaints" against the doctor that the AG sent to her. Curiously, none of the six complaints came from actual patients, and only one was actually from Indiana. None of them appear to have even met Dr. Bernard.

    Just a reminder: It's all political for Republicans, and the goal is to continue to do everything they can to deny life-saving medical care to 10 year old victims of rape, forcing them instead to risk their own life to carry their rapists fetus to term.

    If American Evangelicals weren't 29% of the voting base in the US; This would not be a discussion.

    Politicians are reflections of voters who vote for them. It's simple their voters, who have an oversized influence in state politics because of Gerrymandering, force Republicans to do this.

    Same applied to the old South (which lets be real, never changed) The levers of political power are biased toward rural populations, and as I said in another thread as a result rural populations dictate to urban ones what the law is and that's how they like it.

    yes but that's just a symptom.

    the real issue is that between the mid 60 and the late 70s a huge shift happened in the political and cultural paradigms within the republican party, largely having to do with racism and religious zealotry, but the end result is that republicans stopped being a political party engaged in the business of governance for a large developed country, and turned into a cultural movement with a rigid agenda it wanted to impose on everyone regardless of the context or circumstances.

    republicans are basically what would happen if for some reason you just made 4chan an equal part of our federal government... like if the US federal government were the house, the senate, and 4chan. whatever policies 4chan decides it wants, it can introduce. and it gets a vote in what laws are passed.
