    While we all obsess over the latest incident of Trump calling someone a c-word or telling Marco Rubio he's a pussy a very important case is before the Supreme Court today that will affect all of our lives for the next 50 years.

    Whole Women's Health v. Hellerstedt is a case currently before the 8 person short handed Supreme Ct. In this case a Texas State Statute which basically bans abortion by putting up onerous health code violations on abortion clinics making it impossible for them to function is reviewed for it's legality.


    Issue: Can states essentially ban abortion by over regulating it?


    If the short handed Supreme Ct is split 4-4 the ruling by the 5th circuit will stand. The 5th circuit held that the statute is legal and Texas can get around Roe v. Wade and ban abortion.

    I would bet that 4 white guys are going to limit abortions for millions of women in Texas and other states after this case.

    No wonder there is a gender gap occurring between the two political parties.

    What's going to happen is a lot of these states that have Tea Party governors are going to try to get the same statute

    I'm sure that the next time the Texas budget comes before the state senate, they will definitely account for all of the unwanted children they will have on their hands and raise taxes to support them. :thumbup2:

    Some people just want the U.S. to become India. A billion poor people living in huts and 10,000 superwealthy elite living in fortresses

    The idea of the government forcing you to keep a baby is disgusting

    Last thing we need is more unloved/impoverished children in the world

    The crazy thing is this is happening in Texas already. A lot of pro-choice republicans dismiss the majority of their party wanting to ban abortion but the shit is real.

    No this shouldn't happen, the laws are the laws, either find a legal way to overturn it if you're so inclined or accept the loss, end arounds irritate me.

    Vin you're views are generally very liberal minded I'm sure you would admit, so I'd wager I know how you feel about what is going on in Texas. What do you think of a similar end around that happened in San Francisco when they intentionally over regulated the purchasing of guns and now there are no more gun shops in the city as the business' couldn't keep up with all the regulations??

    If you think that's a valid argument, you're a dunce.

    This is the only social that makes me violently angry. You want the unwanted kids born? Fine, then financially help the mother for 18 years or adopt the child. You're either part of the solution or part of the problem

    The so-called conservative court has upheld the right of access to abortion in almost every case put before it. I don't see how the loss of a uber-conservative judge is going to change that.

    As a gun owner who lives in California, I just can't get enough of hearing liberals speak out against rights that are effectively denied through over regulation. :D

    Tell you what, how about you help defend my right to purchase the pistols, rifles and magazines that I like, and I'll see what I can do about helping you preserve your right to kill people who are guilty of nothing more than inconveniencing you. ;)
