For Grins, here’s my prediction on the Supreme’s decision on Abortion
Roe v. Wade is overturned by 5 justices of the Supreme Court. Roberts concurred with the result but wouldn’t go as far as the Five who overturned it.
The justices who told the Senate with a straight face that Roe is a strong precedent and “settled law” that is entitled to stare decisis protection concurred and tried to distance themselves from Alito’s absolute language of Roe being wrongly decided from the get-go.
The three liberal justices vehemently dissented, calling it one of the darkest days in the court’s history, likening it to the court’s most infamous decisions (Plessy v Fergeson,, validating separate but equal racial discrimination, Buck v Bell, validating forced sterilization of mentally incapacitated women, (but not men) and Kurematsu , affirming the right to imprison over 100,000 Japanese Americans, half of whom were U.S. citizens.
There are reports of protests being organized around the country.
The good news is that now protesters and counterprotesters can bring their assault rifles and concealed handguns to exercise their Second Amendment rights, as they protest against (or in favor of) the power of white Christian religious men (and women) to limit the ability of women to control their bodies.
The religious right Supreme Court Justices have finally acknowledged that once a woman conceives, she turns into a vessel/baby incubator, with no control over her body until she fulfills her God-created incubator obligation. And let’s not forget that the founding fathers didn’t create a right to abortion (but they also didn’t allow women to vote; many were slave owners, but they did allow slaves to be counted as /5’s of a person for the purposes of figuring out how many congressMEN a state could have. All I can say is that it’s about time!
A special thanks to the indomitable RBG, the brilliant liberal justice, and protector of women’s rights over many decades, except for that one little thing.
Fasten your seatbelts; it’s going to be a bumpy ride. And make sure you have plenty of ammunition to exercise your Second Amendment Rights in order to keep women in the place they deserve (according to the aforedescribed religious right Supremes), at least until their fulfill their baby vessel status.

Here’s what I’m curious about: an idea or position that is uniquely yours. I understand how you feel but this is not your unique thinking. It did not originate from you. I would find it much more interesting to read a perspective I have not heard before. About anything. Something that is uniquely yours.
I’m personally against abortion, but it is certainly constitutional.
Imagine a man being kidnapped by scientists, while he is knocked out, they implant a placenta with a small viable fetus. Imagine him waking up and being required by Government to carry that fetus to term.
There is hierarchy of rights, for example, someone 30 has more rights than a 15 year old, someone 35 has more rights than a 29 year old. A parent has more rights over their own child than a neighbor or teacher does.
Right or wrong in the eyes of YOUR God, the mother has more rights than anyone else over what is allowed to grow inside of her. And since our constitution specifically protects the right to be completely free of religion, and the right of privacy, it would be absurd to say that a government, even a State, has any authority to investigate a womans body and demand that she respects certain religious beliefs.
That’s your comment, really? Your political bias shines through. Since you live in a deep blue state ruled by the radical left, have no fear, nothing will change. They will continue to allow baby killing in the womb, or maybe go further with their infanticide legislation. In most states nothing will change. If the state allows abortion that will continue. In fact Roe was terrible, it was legislation from the bench and now the power goes back to the states where it constitutionally belongs. The only losers here are the abortion industry and women can still chose one of the several options for prevention.
This is a mic drop.
