Maxine Waters: “The hell with the Supreme Court. We will defy them”.

Classy and respectful of diversity as always

Plus, how do you “defy” a decision which says states can decide what to do?

Plus, if she can defy federal
law, does that mean I can defy the Internal Revenue Service? Because if I can do what she says she’s gonna do, then there’s a 26 foot Regulator with my name on it.

When the Supreme Court acts like a legislative body overturning established precedent that they lawyerly failed to tell the truth about in their confirmation hearings they are viewed correctly as a political body.
Not one elected or wanted by the majority of voters.
Unpopular legislation doesn’t work.
Just wait for what the ultra right wing Court does next, because in a concurring opinion overturning Roe, Justice Thomas said that SCOTUS should reconsider opinions protecting same-sex relationships, marriage equality and contraceptives.

The court must "'correct the error' established in those precedents," Thomas said.

The only saving grace about Justice Thomas's concurrence is that no other justice joined it. At least, not today.

So now for good cause American confidence in Supreme Court sinks to lowest level ever recorded by Gallup

Exactly. Roe may have been a flawed argument, but it was challenged how many times during Reagan’s term alone? That eventually culminated in Casey.

So basically, the Fox News 5 + Roberts decided this time was different. Of course three of them (maybe more) distinctly said during confirmation that’s Roe was settled law at this point.

Everyone should read Supreme Myth’s by Segal. It predates all the recent stuff by a few years but shows some of the history of the court acting as a political body (on both sides).

so if a bunch of segregationist judges upheld slavery and segregation a few times, that would
mean you’d say it can
never be overturned?

where’s that in the constitution?

constitution doesn’t provide for abortion, but says pretty clearly a person can’t be denied life without due process.

you’re a scientist. in your opinion, when is it a person? i’m genuinely curious.

rep Cori Bush says SCOTUS is racist. She didn’t say how. No one will ask her to support that.

Viability, which obviously changes all the time.
I am not saying this is easy. Put a cap on it, 20 weeks, whatever seems reasonable and don’t remove exceptions for rape/incest/life of mother.

you responded straight up, i respect that. that is sincere, not sarcastic.

i’m a math guy. things need to make sense to me. my issue with picking a point, say 20 weeks, is this…the baby is no different on the last day of the 19th week, than it is on the first day of the 20th week. i think there’s only one spectacular moment, one time when something gets created that didn’t exist before, that’s conception. But that’s my logic, and reasonable
people can disagree.

but we both seem to agree that women can choose to do whatever they want with their own bodies, as long as that choice doesn’t hurt someone else. you and i may disagree a little on what constitutes “someone else”, but we seem to agree on a big chunk of it.

And i’m fine with leaving exceptions for rape, incest, and the health of the mom. those are, thankfully, rare.

Clarence and his nut job wife are a perfect example of why lifetime and now political appointments are so wrong, especially when the majority of the country disagrees with their decisions.

For someone bringing his political BS to the main forum, I’m pretty sure you can’t be complaining about anything.

Yea November is coming

Stating the obvious: but so everyone is clear. It is absolutely the case that the very first legislative priority of a Republican trifecta at the national level will be a federal ban on abortions. It will be HR 1.

I hope the saying be careful what you wish for comes back to bite the far right. Women are coming out to vote and which side of that debate hold the bigger numbers. Time to add more justices to the Supreme Court to balance things out and I hope this administration has some foresight to see that’s required to properly represent the country as a whole.

was the court was left tilting since Earl Warren was on it. but that imbalance was ok.

you add more, then the right adds more when they’re in charge. where does that end?

do you binder stand what happens here? abortion will only be outlawed, i. states where people
want that. that’s how state governments work.

Is this why Pence announced he thinks abortions should be banned by federal law and he’s the guy to do it? Truth is any Republican running in 2024 will do the same to make abortion illegal everywhere in the US.

you always find one extremist, and assign the extreme view to the entire GOP.

Fine, then AOC speaks for all
democrats everywhere

It’s going to the states where it belongs. WE get to decide, rather than 9 unelected judges. I can live with that, even though I know it means abortion will always be legal in many states.

It’s a political/legislative issue, it should be decided by us.

Telling that you are so opposed to that idea.

I haven’t heard one single legal
argument in favor of it today. Just that the left really wants it.

Wow

Pence is now an extremist in your view

He’s certainly thinking he’s running for the Republican nomination

He was the Vice President of the party you support

And he’s far from the sole Republican proposing a federal ban

Apparently there’s lots of Republican extremists

Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.), the chair of the 158-member Republican Study Committee, told Axios, "We're having lots of conversations."

"When we get the majority back after the midterms, I expect there to be a larger discussion about where Republicans are unified, and those conversations are still ongoing," he added.
Banks said there are "lots of legislative vehicles that are getting broad Republican support," from a 15-week ban to a heartbeat bill to a total ban.
Rep. Bob Good (R-Va.), who is championing a total abortion ban co-sponsored by more than 160 House Republicans, said, "We need to do what our base sent us here to do and what is the right thing to do, which is to ban all abortion."
