Agreed Roe/Wade is settled law but its the lefts current boogeyman in the SC....man on here said God knows how many times it was going to be repealed if Kavanaugh(go back and read the multiple threads on him if you want sources) gets confirmed and guess what today..it is still settled law.

And yet how many states are drafting laws that fly in the face of Roe Wade?

How are they currently being trampled?

Personally I think RBG should have retired years ago. But I wish her the best in her struggle with cancer.

I see nothing there that shows he has surprises those of us on the left. He's far right just like Gorsuch and Thomas and Alito.
Instead of far right or far left, how about we focus on who can stick to the original meaning of the constitution?

See the new laws passed recently in GA, AL, TX, OH, ND and on and on.

The poor woman looks so tiny and fragile. A gust of wind would knock her over. Hope she retires and spends some happy remaining time with her family.

The Government can't just void how many hundreds of thousands of marriages.....can you imagine how tied up the courts would be with everyone suing? So if the marriage wasn't valid, who gets what that they bought together in the divorce? That's just one of a million reasons why they won't touch it. Well more than half of Americans support it, anyway.

Same sex marriage isn't going anywhere. It was settled 4 years ago. The Pat Robertsons of the world can get get the **** over it. Most republicans don't even care. Just cause they don't go to pride parades it doesn't make them bigots.

I'm in one, just btw. Not worried one bit.

Edit: My irritability wasn't directed at you, this is just an issue that really gets under my skin because it would never happen.
I agree. Same sex marriage isn't going anywhere. Now, with a solidly conservative Supreme Court, don't expect LGBT rights to be further expanded. But that's hardly the same as ditching same sex marriage. The precedent is too new.

Now, Roe v. Wade has never been settled law and its always been under attack as it has no foundation within the Constitution. A 6th conservative vote on the Supreme Court would essentially gut Roe, which is fine with me.
