Quote from: The Brain on May 03, 2022, 12:17:43 AMCan the Supreme Court be wrong? Doesn't it settle questions regarding the Constitution? Non-rhetorical. Law and the real world are two very different things.
Quote from: Berkut on May 03, 2022, 01:08:26 AMIs there any legal meaning behind justices exclaiming over and over that their reasoning is only applicable to some narrow interpretation?How does that even make any sense? If I say that all rectangles have four sides, therefore a square must be a rectangle, saying that you should not apply that same principle to a trapezoid doesn't make any sense.Roe was based on the recognized right to privacy. If you are arguing that Roe was bad law, then how can you argue that the recognition of a right to privacy is not ALSO bad law?
QuoteAbortion Attitudes: An Overview of Demographic and Ideological DifferencesDanny Osborne,Yanshu Huang,Nickola C. Overall,Robbie M. Sutton,Aino Petterson,Karen M. Douglas,Paul G. Davies,Chris G. SibleyAbstractDespite being a defining issue in the culture war, the political psychology of abortion attitudes remains poorly understood. We address this oversight by reviewing existing literature and integrating new analyses of several large-scale, cross-sectional, and longitudinal datasets to identify the demographic and ideological correlates of abortion attitudes. Our review and new analyses indicate that abortion support is increasing modestly over time in both the United States and New Zealand. We also find that a plurality of respondents (43.8%) in the United States are consistently "pro-choice," whereas 14.8% are consistently "pro-life," across various elective and traumatic abortion scenarios. We then show that age, religiosity, and conservatism correlate negatively, whereas Openness to Experience correlates positively, with abortion support. New analyses of heterosexual couples further reveal that women's and men's religiosity decrease their romantic partner's abortion support. Noting inconsistent gender differences in attitudes toward abortion, we then discuss the impact of traditional gender-role attitudes and sexism on abortion attitudes and conclude that, rather than misogyny, benevolent sexism—the belief that women should be cherished and protected—best explains opposition to abortion. Our review thus provides a comprehensive overview of the demographic and ideological variables that underly abortion attitudes and, hence, the broader culture war.
Quote from: The Minsky Moment on May 02, 2022, 10:06:35 PMThis is just the very beginning of a constitutional and interstate shitshow of the kind America has not seen since before the Civil War. The crazy bounty and beg your rapist laws are just the starting point in the avalanche of punitive legislation that is coming. The antis will not be content with total victory, they will demand more and push the envelope farther. And the safe haven states will push back leading to escalating moves and sanctions and countersanctions.People didn't care that much about abortion rights because they didn't have to because of Roe. Now sides were be taken and the width of the sidelines will shrink.

QuoteThe kindest thing you can say is it's a first draft and it reads like it. On an issue that it acknowledges is divisive, it seems to revel in its intemperateness. And for an opinion that holds Roe to strict standards of formalist constitutional logic, it utterly fails those standards in attempting to distinguish the other "autonomy" cases e.g. Griswold, Eisenstadt, Lawrence, Obergefell, etc. No surprise the Chief doesn't want to touch this and I wonder if one or more of the majority (Kavanaugh maybe?) splits off into a concurrence.
QuoteYeah the whole "we'll get you even if you abort elsewhere" approach seems a pretty vindictive feature of the American anti-abortion movement. Even Francoist Spain looked elsewhere when thousands of Spanish women traveled to France or the UK for an abortion. And you know, we were an actual fascist nation.
