    It wasn't conservative and it worked just fine. 38 of 50 states permitted abortions in the case of Rape, incest and if the mother's life was at risk all allowed abortion in the case of a threat to the mother's life.

    The divide between red states and blue ones will grow as red states follow better policies and preserve life.

    No. Now it's your turn. Was Thomas engaging in hyperbole or fear mongering?

    It's similar to a drunk driving accident. The fault is the the act, not the result.

    Speaking of incest, it's illegal right?

    Isn't that the government restricting what consenting adults can do with their bodies? Isn't that sort of thing a government overreach by your logic?

    By the same rationale, shouldn't you be calling for legalizing incest?

    :) Try quoting my post containing my original question. I'm not really interested in whether it's ok if I assume you're intelligent.

    I go to Algadones in Mexico to get my dental work done. My dentist is excellent, honest and never suggests anything I don't need which he informed me my US dentist had done a lot.

    I save a ton of money.

    I don't really need to but I like getting a good deal plus there's a Native American casino resort I can stay in on the US side of the border and my savings easily pay for margaritas and steak dinners for the couple of days I need to be there.

    All along the highway there are signs for the various dentists and pharmacies they'd like you to visit. Pretty soon I'm expecting to see signage for gynecological clinics offering discount abortion services.

    Ah! Good to see the spirit of free enterprise is still at work with our southern neighbors who commenced the process of legalizing abortion in 2021 (prescient or what?).

    I think that tribe is going to need to build a bigger casino.

    They are trying to stop the killing of developing humans. I assume they will work on it until it stops. No surprise there.

    The purple-haired progressive slippery slope is realy, really slick, and it leads to a deep, deep pit of degeneracy.

    Right now, frankly, I'm glad that I probably won't be.

    There are no "unborn children."
    Abortion has always been a form of birth control.
    Continued pregnancy is a choice, too.

    Abortion is a right in Canada because there is no law regulating abortion.

    I really don't care about Canada. Its laws have no relevancy to this SC decision.

    Don’t forget beastality. Cenk and the Young Turks called for that to be legalized.

    But hard to argue with Justice Alito here:

    “We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled. The Constitution makes no reference to abortion, and no such right is implicitly protected by any constitutional provision, including the one on which the defenders of Roe and Casey now chiefly rely — the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment,” Alito wrote. “That provision has been held to guarantee some rights that are not mentioned in the Constitution, but any such right must be ‘deeply rooted in this Nation’s history and tradition’ and ‘implicit in the concept of ordered liberty.’”


    I can't disagree with one word of that.

    In a way, I am surprised that they ruled so sweeping instead of just saying "We cannot find that the Mississippi law is unconstitutional."

    On the other hand, if they had just said "a ban on abortions after 15 weeks is not unconstitutional," another state would have floated a ban on a abortions after 14 weeks, and then another a ban after 13 weeks just to push the limits. So sooner or later, the rubber would have met the road.

    Of course there are.

    If they're not, where do born children come from.

    A form of birth control only for the demented.

    You are not aware that most Hispanics who come across the border are deeply rooted in religion? Like that it's a heavy part of the culture they are bringing over? LOL. good grief.

    Nobody cares about Canada. They aren’t important enough.

    Democrats morphed into a party that supports minorities. Ignoring the change is smearing them for no good reason.
