What predictions? States with anti-abortion laws are already forcing people to use their bodies to save “individuals”, as Zig puts it, who aren’t even legally people.

I'm sure the supreme court would be more than willing to help with some of those. Oh, wait, they already had their say, and their response was "go ahead and suppress all those minority votes and gerrymander away. We don't care."

Clarence Thomas, on an abortion-related roll, diseented:

In a sharply worded dissent, Justice Clarence Thomas expressed support Thursday for a debunked claim that all Covid vaccines are made with cells from “aborted children.”

St. Luke’s Health Kansas City said in a statement Wednesday that it would resume offering the medication known as the morning after pill, a day after it told The Kansas City Star that its Missouri hospitals would halt emergency contraception.

It did so after the state's attorney general issued a statement stating unequivicolly that emergency contraception is not illegal under an abortion ban that was enacted minutes after Friday's U.S. Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade. The Missouri law bans all abortions except in cases of medical emergency.

First of all, the fact that the a hospital (an organization that probably has decent legal experts on staff) was concerned about dispensing the morning after pill should make a rational person a bit nervous, since it indicates a law that is vague.

Secondly... why should anyone trust the Attorney general? He's a Republican... a member of the party that has decided that women cannot control their own bodies. It certainly would not be out of character for them to change their opinion in the near future if the members of Y'all Quaeda raise a big-enough fuss.

Could you explain how he is wrong? The only quote they have from him in the article is "because they were developed using cell lines derived from aborted children". The article goes on to explain "The fetal tissue used in these processes came from elective abortions that happened decades ago. But the cells have since replicated many times, so none of the original tissue is involved in the making of modern vaccines.".

They add in a claim that the cells that are currently being used are from foetal tissue and debunk his statement based on that. Their quote from him doesn't make that claim though. They also equivocate from his statement of "developed using" to "manufactured from".

This is pretty typical of the way fact checkers operate where they debunk a claim that is more specific, or otherwise altered, from the statement that they are ostensibly debunking.

Does he actually make the claim they debunk anywhere?

That's good for the EPA crap but I believe it may be working for the Alito in charge of abortions too.

There is at least one prosecutor in TX balking at enforcing the abortion ban. Remember the sheriffs that wouldn't enforce mask mandates? Instead of a civil war what we might end up with are police departments selectively enforcing laws. With a disrespected SCOTUS we are closer to that kind of breakup of the country.

However, the plaintiffs were OK with vaccines developed in the same way; the cell lines were using in testing the mRNA vaccine, not in manufacturing it. So explain how this should qualify for a religious exemption?

Florida judge rules state's 15 week abortion ban violates the "privacy" clause of FL's constitution. He'll issue statewide injunction. DeSantis' office says it will appeal to state's conservative SC to reverse existing precedent regarding FL' right to privacy.

Looks like reversing he right to privacy has become the GOP's baby.

As soon as RBG turned out to not be a highlander this is where it was heading. Packing the court was the best option, but that time has far passed in part because we listened to people who are way too emotionally invested in the sanctity of the Supreme Court and who failed to comprehend that it's now gone fully rogue and back and forth packing and repacking making the court way less coherent is still a win.

The only thing that requires the other branches to listen to the court are the same sort of norms the GOP has been using as toilet paper to their ends. Which is why they need to do this. They probably half-assed do this as to abortion in that abortion meds are FDA approved and there is some issue with state statutes that make FDA approved medicines illegal. They will be similarly cute with regulations somehow. Supremacy clause, etc.

This will eventually come to naught because we are effectively Iran; a political structure operating under the approval of a council of religious extremists mostly concerned with maintaining their group's hegemony over their people. It's just developing slowly but will speed up as dark money pacs ramp up and go full speed at manufacturing cases to get issues in front of the court.

This was always the danger of framing Supreme Court justices as priests handing down received wisdom as to the meaning of the constitution.

It's the lying media as usual. Thomas was quoting the petitioners:

Quote:

Petitioners are 16 healthcare workers who served New York communities throughout the COVID–19 pandemic. They object on religious grounds to all available COVID–19 vaccines because they were developed using cell lines de-
rived from aborted children.
And that particular claim isn't exactly incorrect, even according to NBC News:

Quote:

Pfizer and Moderna used fetal cell lines early in their Covid vaccine development to test the efficacy of their formulas, as other vaccines have in the past. The fetal tissue used in these processes came from elective abortions that happened decades ago. But the cells have since replicated many times, so none of the original tissue is involved in the making of modern vaccines.
So they were derived from abortions, just many years ago and they've since been replicated, so it doesn't really count?

I have a couple of Finnish Americans telling me the politics is normal and he can't wait till the Nov election is over, we are freaking out too much. He will be happy for GOP taking the senate and he will just suffer the last two years under Biden, but in 2024 everything will be fine. Move along, nothing to see here!

No, it's not fine. A non-elected branch of government is basically writing law. Biden must act now. Election day will be too late. We will have no way to stop republicans at the state level in 2023 and 2024.

Radical liberals have only themselves to blame. The Dobbs decision resulted from a liberal Democratic legal challenge to Mississippi's perfectly sane, reasonable abortion law that allowed abortions up to week 15 but banned them after that point, with an exception for endangerment.

Sheesh, isn't 15 weeks enough time to figure out that you're pregnant and get an abortion? Never mind the moral issue of killing a 14-week-old baby in the womb.

As soon as you can get knocked up, I'll consider your opinion on this matter.

Until then, I don't really give a ****.

BTW, you don't have to be a "radical liberal" to think that someone should have bodily autonomy, and it's one of the worst violations of human rights to take that away. Let me guess: you're one of those people who think that the Fourth Amendment is unneeded, too. "Hey, if you got nothing to hide, why do you need privacy?"

Well, there are certain birth defects that render a pregnancy non-viable that don't show up that early, but the main reason was politics. Viability becomes possible at about 22 weeks (no premature baby in history before that has survived as far as we know), but the Mississippi law kicked in at 15 weeks in an effort to separate the idea of viability from the legality of abortion.

If viability is not an issue, why isn't 15 weeks enough? If 15 weeks is enough, why not 14? Why not 13? Why not 6? Politically speaking it was just another effort to chip away at abortion rights. You can either fight those or lose ground bit by bit by bit.

So it gets to the Supreme "Court" and the court said not only was a 15 ban OK, but there was no right to an abortion in the US. The court could have just said the first part, but they went all in on overturning Roe. Its not really liberals fault. With this "Court", if it had not been this case, it would have been another.

Radical liberals, inasmuch as they even exist in the USA political landscape, have near zero influence. All of these lawsuits were, by design and intent, meant to be challenged. This was a feature, not a bug. If it had not been Dobbs that triggered the (de facto or, as it turned out, literal) repeal of Roe vs. Wade it would have been one of at least a dozen others waiting in the wings for their turn.

The 15 weeks might be workable. But it also excluded rape and incest. Those are time consuming cases in courts and not easy for the victims.

Pro-forced birth propaganda that throws a multitude of legitimate reasons under a blanket "social" category. These would include:

1) I am not fit to be a parent.
2) I do not want to have children.
3) My Partner is not fit or willing to have children
4) I have already had enough children to handle
5) I am not ready in life to have children
6) etc. etc.

Money is a reason, but fact is a lot of folks just don't want to have a kid.

That's an intentionally disingenuous framing, to save money. It conjures up some some middle class woman finding it rewarding to clip a few coupons in her idle time to save a few bucks and... oh yeah, having an abortion will save money too.

It's like bringing into this world another human being is no big deal and not laden with all sorts of profound implications. Yes, you dismiss some of it as merely economic; but merely economic can have profound implications & can completely derail someone's life (including the child, I might add).

But yeah, it's no biggie. Carry on. Let's go back to a time when women could not legally make their own financial decisions.

What's the problem? No part ofvthe vaccine molecules comes from fetuses, as stated. Nothing to do with "long ago." There are enzymes and even cells in vaccine processes. None of those come from mammals.

A piece commonly used is called plasmid, of bacterial origin.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MRNA_vaccine

Pfizer:Manufacturing the vaccine requires a three-stage process. The first stage involves the molecular cloning of DNA plasmids that code for the spike protein by infusing them into Escherichia coli bacteria. For all markets, this stage is conducted in the United States,[117] at a small Pfizer pilot plant in Chesterfield, Missouri[118][119] (near St. Louis). After four days of growth, the bacteria are killed and broken open, and the contents of their cells are purified over a week and a half to recover the desired DNA product. The DNA is bottled and frozen for shipment. Safely and quickly transporting the DNA at this stage is so important that Pfizer has used its company jet and helicopter to assist.[120]

A piece commonly used is called plasmid, of bacterial origin.

Pfizer:Manufacturing the vaccine requires a three-stage process. The first stage involves the molecular cloning of DNA plasmids that code for the spike protein by infusing them into Escherichia coli bacteria. For all markets, this stage is conducted in the United States,[117] at a small Pfizer pilot plant in Chesterfield, Missouri[118][119] (near St. Louis). After four days of growth, the bacteria are killed and broken open, and the contents of their cells are purified over a week and a half to recover the desired DNA product. The DNA is bottled and frozen for shipment. Safely and quickly transporting the DNA at this stage is so important that Pfizer has used its company jet and helicopter to assist.[120]
