The U.S. Supreme Court looks set to vote to overturn the Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion nationwide, according to a leaked initial draft majority opinion published by Politico on Monday.



You won't be seeing me in taliban amerika. I'll be selling that Florida property as soon as the it's in my possession.
 
I like this part:

“the Constitution makes no reference to abortion, and no such right is implicitly protected by any constitutional provision.”

Well, if that's the case, there's also no reference to circumcision, Viagra, prostate health, colon cancer or any other men's health issue, so I guess women should start outlawing all of that as well.
 
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Please show me the word "privacy"...
 
That's the entire premise: privacy. To be secure in your home, person, etc. is by definition a right to privacy. Nobody can enter it, take things from it, look inside it, etc. without sufficient probable cause and/or a warrant based on same.
 
It may be the 'premise' but the word itself isn't mentioned and the SCOTUS seems hell bent on being 'literal' with Roe vs Wade.

What's to stop them being literal here???
 
The fact remains that privacy as a matter of being secured in your home, effects, etc. is covered at length and has been ruled upon dozens of times throughout the nations history.

Abortion is not mentioned at all, nor is any form of health care for that matter (go figure we're the only nation on earth without universal health care) and has only been ruled upon very limitedly in our history with Roe being the last instance of it.

I don't think that's a justification at all for overturning though. I think it's complete bullshit.

What it does do though is open the door for any ruling the SCOTUS has ever made to be overturned for pretty much no good reason. So that will be their legacy: giving legitimacy to overruling previous rulings for partisan reasons.

History will remember them poorly.
 
Apparently, President Biden thinks as I do:

"The idea that concerns me a great deal that we're going to after 50 years decide a woman does not have a right to choose within the limits of a Supreme Court decision ... But even more, equally as profound, is the rationale used, and it would mean that every other decision made in the notion of privacy is thrown into question."
 
Well, in the end, that's what it all boils down to: it's a privacy issue. It always has been. That's what started the whole thing.

How can one feel "secure in their person" if the state decides what they can and can't do with their own body? That's what Roe was based on to begin with but it all got warped out of proportion into "a woman's reproductive system" and not "a person's body" and "the life of the unborn" and "when does life begin" and all kinds of other baggage.

So with this BS ruling they're issuing, it throws every single privacy case ever ruled on into question. After all, if it doesn't apply to women fully how can it apply to anybody else?

They're already going after trans genders and gays and whoever else isn't white, male and Christian. What we need are some people to start enacting laws against those demographics. Fight fire with fire.
